One of the best ways to get, and stay, motivated is to do something fresh and new. Another way to stay motivated is to be rewarded for your work. Sure, working out is rewarding, but when actual prizes are at stake, sometimes it’s just what you need to really get you (and keep you) going.

I am sooo proud to announce a project Steve and I have been working on: Designer Whey’s Summer Shape Up Challenge. It’s not just another workout program, it’s a 60 day fitness challenge led by some of the best trainers in the county with chances to win killer prizes. The more you check in and do the workouts, the more chances you get to improve your fitness and win a ton of prizes throughout the whole challenge. Check out the promo!

Over 30 Workouts to Try

Each weekday features a different trainer so you never get tired of the trainer, or the workouts. Our trainers have been on ABC, Fox, VH1, NBC, Spike & countless other major networks, sites and publications. You’ll do lower body with Steve Pfiester from BCx Boot Camp, upper body with Blake Kassel from LiveExercise.com, core & cardio with Coach Mike VanArsdale from Team Jaco MMA training camp (home of UFC champs), yoga and toning with Andrea Metcalf of Naked Fitness, & full body boot camp with Alfonso Moretti of Angry Trainer Fitness. But that’s not all! We’ve added Weekend Wild Card Workouts from various trainers across the nation to spice it up even more! This means every Saturday and Sunday you’ll see something fresh and new!

Just Show Up
As you know, I always tell people the hardest part is showing up. Well, that’s all you really have to do! You just go to Designer Whey’s page and click on their Summer Shape Up Facebook App (launches Monday, July 9th) to get started. You just show up as many days as you can, watch the workout of the day and do what you can. Whether you do the whole program or just the workout of the day, you can come play with us and join in the fun, sweat and prizes!

We’ll Be There for You
Steve will introduce the workout of the day and help you through each workout, giving tips, guidance and encouragement. You’ll also get to meet other people, just like you, doing the same workouts with you, so you’ll have added online support and camaraderie.

Designed to Win
Not only will you WIN a better body when you are done, you will have chances to win weekly prizes from a variety of killer brands AND a chance to win a luxury wellness vacation at Gloria Estefan’s Costa d’ Este Beach Resort and play with us!
