We just LOVE giving you guys stuff for FREE! (.....pause for applause....) That's why every time someone approaches us about a new product or service we insist on them giving some away to our fabulous members.
DoctorWorkout (www.doctorworkout.com) is my personal trainer and he's just come out with his very first workout dvd that he'd like you to try! It's a total body workout and is broken down into 3 sections. 1: just abs 2: stability ball 3: total body workout.
Two ChickAdvisor Members will get this video (retail value $29.99) for FREE courtesy of DoctorWorkout.com and here's how it works. Under this forum topic, the 2 members who make the most COMPELLING argument as to why they should get the free dvd will get it. Simple as that. If someone argues with you, argue back. At the end, we'll read over the whole thread and the winners will be selected based on the brilliance of their arguments.
Starts now and ends on January 31st 2007 at midnight (EST) DVD's will be sent directly to the winners by Doctor Workout in the beginning of February. *only 1 dvd per household.
You don't need a lot of equipment to do this video. If you don't have a stability ball (though I recommend you get one because it's an amazing exercise tool), you can still do the abs workout and the total body workout. The rest of it uses stuff you already have lying around at home such as a broom, soup cans or you can use free weights.
|Question on limits... on Jan 19, 2007 @ 04:18 pm|
misschickie, what is the limit as to how many contests/prizes a person can win?

So, currently, there aren't any!

|How many contests can a person win. on Jan 21, 2007 @ 04:46 pm|
A few of you have been emailing me asking if you win this one does that mean you can't win something else. Well the answer is no, we want you to win as much as possible!
Enter as many contests as you want. If you win a couple of contests, that's great! It just means you are participating a lot and we love that, so you deserve it!
The more you participate the greater your chances of winning more and more often :) Good luck!
|Why I should win DoctorWorkout.. on Jan 21, 2007 @ 05:45 pm|
I am always looking to try something new, especially when it comes to fitness and health. I'm the kind of person who always needs to be creative (sense the name, Artist) I'm always trying to find out new ways to challenge myself to reach my goals.
Doctorworkout would benefit me because I need something new. My workouts are getting a bit repetitive and I really want to spice things up.
I went to the Doctorworkout website and researched about the programs and Marc's path of becoming a trainer and educator on fitness. What I found quite interesting is that he didn't start out in this field right away, finishing a degree in philosophy.
Currently, I am in a program in university that is something quite different from health. And similar to Marc, I think I will go back to school after my fine arts degree to get into the health and fitness field. While studying my program, another passion that has arisen, which is a passion for fitness and health.
In the future I hope to combine both my creativity and love for fitness together into one profession.
Doctorworkout is like an inspirational starting point, not only to get more in shape but also for educational purposes. I love learning new things and the more I learn about anything, especially in fitness and nutrition (where I am a growing bud), the greater sense of knowledge I have. I am not afraid to admit also, that I love learning and school! I want to see how Marc used his knowledge to come up with a creative and effective workout, and put it to the test to see how well it works. For myself, but also so that I can try and get other loved ones in my life into a more healthy lifestyle (who wouldn't dare go to a gym!)
Knowledge is power. The more you learn, and more you grow.
Doctorworkout will challenge myself and stimulate my mind and body.

I am in my second year in residence, and forget the freshman 15. I'm not sure if there's a saying for the weight you gain when you're a 2nd year in rez, but im sure working on it.
The food in residence is just not condusive to a healthy lifestyle when you consider that half the cafeteria menu items are deep fried, and the other half are either full of oil, carbs, or just plain gross.
Anyway, I seriously need to jumpstart a workout routine to get my body back to its high school shape, and DoctorWorkout will help me get there.
|Help at-risk students discover the joys of fitness on Jan 22, 2007 @ 11:28 am|
I work at a small alternate high school and we recently started up a gym with donated equipment. A local gym kindly gave us their used balls when they bought new ones. We would love a dvd that would help to incorporate the balls into PE class and students' after-school workouts! Choose me and help MANY instead of one!
|Benefits of a DVD over going to a gym. on Jan 22, 2007 @ 08:28 pm|
I will admit that DoctorWorkout is for my knowledge and training, but also to get others moving and working out (see previous post). Some of my loved ones really suffer from embarrassment and low self esteem because they are not in the best shape.
I want to help them out with the DVD because they would never set foot in a weight room or on a treadmill. I do not intend to only use Doctorworkout for my own purposes. This a stepping stone to help and motivate, but also for education. I really do want to be an educator in fitness and health and help others to realize their potential. Eventually, maybe they will join a health club...
|Upcoming music video shoot and interviews on Jan 23, 2007 @ 10:04 am|
As a professional musician/ guitarist/ songwriter,I just finished a 4-month recording studio stint, where we lived on pizza, caffeine, and assorted junk foods. The only exercise I was able to get was dialing the telephone to order food delivery.
Now that my album is finished, I have to be in tip-top shape immediately as I have interviews, videos, photo shoots, etc., scheduled to start next month. Currently, I'm hitting the gym 7 days a week but it would be much easier if I had some inkling of what I was doing there!
Thanks for the consideration!

I'm a mom - hormonal and sleep deprived. MissChickie says to argue, so I dare y'all to top this whiny, self-serving, and BRILLIANT argument. ;)
Being pregnant and giving birth three times does several things to you. First, there are the pesky baby pounds that require a gargantuan effort to banish. Second, you never really gain your slim-hipped shape back even when the weight is gone because you get a bit blobby around the equator, what with the loose skin and all.
Now, having children in general naturally conflicts with staying fit. I can't afford the gym because spend all my money on diapers, and I can't get out of the house anyway. My ONLY OPTION is to do home fitness. I don't eat my kids' leftovers, nor do I binge on chocolate when they're driving me up the wall. So I am doing everything I can nutrition-wise to keep slim, but the blobbies remain.
You all have great arguments and I sincerely wish you all luck with winning the remaining prize (seeing as how I've got this one all wrapped up!).
|Persevere! on Jan 23, 2007 @ 07:32 pm|
Good for you, mamaluv. I think you do deserve it. In fact, I think all of you have excellent arguments.
I have been ill for the past two months due to a bad strain of pneumonia (which is also why I have become so afraid of germs). I haven't been able to get out to the gyms, or even out for that matter, because the cold air would hurt my lungs when I breathe. When I did any form of respitory endurance my chest would burn. It is slowly going away now. (you can read my post in Women's Health Dec. 21st - Natural Remedies).
If anyone thinks that I am adding this because I really want this, well I do. And I'm not making up it. I would have definitey made a sooner trip to Flirty Girl (just - looks - so - BRILLIANT!!!!), I have been trying to for 2 months now. Everyone, don't get pneumonia. It can do a lot of damage to your lungs.
And all this bacteria and sickness amongst other things have been a major block in the road. It's been hard for me to get back out there again. I think things would be beneficial to aid in getting back on track with an awesome at home workout DVD.
And I still want that knowledge in training, and to use it to work with others.
Perseverance. I never give up, even through the toughest times.
