Want to win a Fitbit Zip fitness tracker and a Fitbit Aria smart wi-fi scale? All you have to do is show us how you ‘Get Fit, Feel Epic’ in words, pictures or video and you could be our winner!
UPDATE: The competition is now closed. Congratulations to Simone from Kent, UK who won the Fitbit Aria and Zip. You can see her winning entry here. Thanks to everyone that took the time to write a blog post – you helped UsFitties gain a donation from the competition sponsors that will go direct to Make-a-Wish Foundation.
We all pack on a little weight over Winter – it’s almost impossible not to and sometimes we do it by design (jumpers are the best way to hide that you’re bulking up).
With Christmas, comfort food, staying in and a little more ‘cheer’ than usual, it is easy to forget about pounding the streets or hitting the gym. However, our friends at MoneySupermarket.com and the team here at UsFitties want to encourage you to take this opportunity to Get Fit, Feel Epic and save some money too!
The act of getting fit and healthy can be a great way to save money. Your health can affect your life insurance premiums, for example. If you are over or underweight most insurance companies will increase the cost of your cover by up to 50%, and smokers and heavy drinkers will also find their premiums are even more expensive than that.
How To Enter
You need to have a blog or micro-blog (WordPress, Tumblr, Blogger, TypePad, LiveJournal Posterous, etc.) to be able to enter.
