Welcome to Week #5 of the Outside the Box Challenge ! I can’t believe we’ve reached the halfway point. We loved reading your brand research — some of you even emailed the companies to inquire about their practices! Investigative bloggers… love it.
This week, we have another fun challenge to get you all outside your boxes. And the prizes are pretty freaking sweet, if I do say so myself.
This week’s test is sponsored by SPRI , makers of top-of-the-line workout equipment and gear. Any home gym would benefit from a few SPRI products . The gym I belong to has quite a few.
Here’s your mission this week: Create your ultimate fitness fantasy. Your dream workout. The exercise session of your wildest imagination. Where are you? What are you doing and with who? Do you have a trainer? Who is it? What time of day is it?
Are you hiking in Yellowstone with Obama? Training in a state-of-the-art gym with Jillian Michaels? Taking a kick-butt kick-boxing class with Billy Blanks and a roomful of encouraging classmates? This is YOUR fantasy, so it can look however you want. Describe it in detail; Make us believe you’ve done it before!
But the second step is to make it a reality. At least, partially. Try to incorporate ONE aspect of your fantasy workout into your workout reality this week, and then tell us about it. One example: If your fantasy is to work out with Jillian, track down a Biggest Loser workout DVD and try it out.
Just for living your dream (and hopefully to help you live it in the future!), Rachel and I created some awesome SPRI prize packs for two lucky winners. Both prize packs are worth around $60!
Rachel’s winner gets:
12-inch foam roller
Red mini band
Soft minis xerball
Mini Spri bar
Leah’s winner gets:
8 lb dumbbells
Mini Spri bar
Xertube with sleeve (resistance band)
But you’re all going to be winners, because by using one of the following codes, you’ll get 20% off any SPRI product(s)! Just input SHEDDINGIT2010 or NUTRITIONISTA2010 in the appropriate field to claim your discount! I’m totally using one of them to get some stuff!
Though you can use the discounts until August, you only have until Sunday, April 4 at 12am PST to report in. Submit entries here . And as always, you don’t have to have entered in the past to be eligible for one of the SPRI prizes! Those of you who have entered every week? You’re still on track to win the GRAND PRIZE.
