We first met Christian Dally one year ago when he was over 98kg and about to start the UFIT Clean & Lean Challenge. He won after losing 9% body fat, and a year later is totally ripped, super fit, his mind is sharper and he's never felt better in his life. We all think he's totally awesome.

It's amazing to have so many people join us on a weekly basis, and we always like to show our appreciation by awarding key members of the community for their outstanding efforts over the course of each month.
