2014 BIKINI SERIES ☀ Winners Announced!


We are thrilled to announce the 2014 BIKINI SERIES™ winners 

Katrina and I have spent the last few weeks going through your remarkable submissions, reading your stories, watching your videos and seeing your radiant smiles in every ‘after’ photo. Each and every single one of you has accomplished so much ~ you’re stronger, happier, more vibrant, excited about life and most of all, committed to your healthy lifestyle.

This year’s theme was to Create Your Summer, and this team came together to collectively dream up and bring into form the most memorable and sweetest summer yet! We are so proud of everyone —not only the winners below, but this team as a whole!! Throughout the challenge, your daily Check ins inspired us, made us smile and blew us away. This community of women is like no other. You are all WINNERS. You’ve won health, happiness and love for your body!

Choosing this year’s BIKINI SERIES™ winners was both thrilling and difficult. Every submission touched us… we smiled, laughed, cried and are very proud of each and every one of you!

You all deserve the world, and with the help of our friends at Contiki Vacations we could not be more excited to give it to these lucky winners…


in no particular order…. ;)


Caitlin A.

Partner: Caitlin M.

“Looking at my transformation photos, I literally can’t believe how quickly these changes were made. I worked at it every day and joined the Nutrition Plan… I have never been able to stick to anything before, so these results truly shocked me! I have never felt so positive about my life and about my body, EVER!”

Partner: Amberlea

“My partner, Amberlea and I have been friends since last year’s BIKINI SERIES, but this year we have grown to be inseparable! We text each other every day –  we encourage and support each other constantly. This series was about letting go of anxiety and fear, living in the moment, loving and enjoying my life and creating my summer! I’m getting ready to move from the UK to the USA for a year and after this challenge, I feel ready. I am beautiful and I ready for anything the year will throw at me… I feel the most confident I have ever been!” 


You may remember Georgie from her popular video, A Day in the Life of a Tone It Up girl. See it here!



Partner: Leah

“Create your summer, to me, is knowing that everyday I’m in control of the life that I want to have. Everyday I can set goals and I can accomplish them… I can choose to love me and love the life that I have. I’m so happy and so proud to be a part of this community. I’m confident with myself and I feel fierce!”

Partner: Haley

“During this challenge I dedicated myself to my Booty Calls, proper nutrition, and daily check-ins. I became so inspired by all the other women in the community and looked forward to encouraging them. I made connections with other girls and began to feel as though I had an entire community of friends! I feel as though I am already a winner with my newfound confidence and summer-ready body!”

Rachel F 1


 Partner: Martha 

“Today, I feel strong, confident, and beautiful. I just wore a swimsuit in front of friends for the first time since High School! My life has been transformed, not just physically, but mentally and emotionally. I have never been so healthy!”

“I started this challenge with the hopes of toning my body and finally feeling confident in shorts. Quickly, I found my confidence soaring, and how I viewed my body completely changed. I started appreciating everything around me. This BIKINI SERIES became more than I ever thought it would be. I became healthier mentally, physically and even socially!”

“My husband and I began cooking with vegetables we’ve never tried before. We made almost all of the Tone It Up recipes and we even joined a crop share this summer so that we will have fresh greens all summer long.  We are forever converted to the this lifestyle.”

Trena Litttle

This BIKINI SERIES has changed my entire outlook on fitness and many other areas of life. I have developed a belief in myself that I never imagined. I can accomplish anything I want! The community of women has been an integral part of my positive change… it gives me support, inspiration, and a place to go 24/7 for encouragement! As a stay-at-home mom, I no longer feel alone in my daily struggles and successes anymore. I am so grateful!”

“I needed to learn how to take care of myself and Tone It Up did that in the most fun, beautiful, amazing way! My pre-baby clothes fit! My digestive tract is working on its own again!!!! I owe so much to Karena & Katrina and to this Community! Everything has changed in 8 weeks! I’m a TIU girl for life!”



“I’ve  gained a passion for my workoutsthey’re a big part of my day instead of being a chore! But best of all, I’m healthy! I have energy! I’m motivated to not only ‘get through the day,’ but to live each day to the fullest and enjoy every part of it! This BIKINI SERIES helped me reach my toning goals, slim down for summer and build up my confidence! I am healthy and happy again.”


See Sadie’s video HERE!


“This BIKINI SERIES was such an unforgettable experience for me! I no longer have acne, I have more energy throughout the day and my overall mood has improved. I feel better than I have ever felt before… I’ve learned to never give up, because anything is possible!

Taylor K

“As a psychologist, I put all my energy into caring for other people. I recognized that I had become very negligent of my own needs, physically and mentally. The BIKINI SERIES challenge was my corrective emotional experience (psychology term!) for loving and caring for ME! I came out of this challenge a completely different person… feeling strong, powerful, and unstoppable!”


See Lindsay’s video HERE!


“I’m a med student which means I spend a LOT of time sitting and studying. With this BIKINI SERIES I was able to lose about 5 lb and toned up! I lost inches on my tights and booty (which are my problem areas)… Wooo woo! That makes me so happy and motivated!! The support from the Tone It Up community was VITAL! Those girls are so loving and caring!”


See Vilma’s video HERE


“When I heard about the BIKINI SERIES, I told myself this was it. I was ready to let this community embrace me and help me to my ultimate recovery [from two tragic car accidents]. The Tone It Up community provided me with the strength and motivation that I needed. This body transformation gave me one of life’s most precious gifts. I am now able to pick up my three year old daughter which was a struggle before. There are not enough words to describe the love and gratitude I have for this community. Tone It Up has not only improved my physical health, but has also made a tremendous impact on my mind and soul.”
