About The Challenge

While many of you are well aware of what the Wellmark Blue Cross Blue Shield Whip It 180 Fitness Challenge is due to my extensive Facebook and e-mail campaigning, others may stumble across this blog without really having a clue.

Wellmark BCBS is a health insurance company that services Iowans and South Dakotans.  This is their first year putting on the Whip It 180 Fitness Challenge!  The challenge was open to residents in 9 counties [to enter the contest you had to submit your name, location, occupation, height and weight, write a short blurb about what your motivation was to enter the challenge and submit a photo of yourself].  A panel of judges narrowed the pool down to 12 semi-finalists. The general public voted for the 4 finalists, who are now the winners of the at-home fitness package!

The at-home fitness package includes many tools to train at home, including: a Body Bugg with a 6 month subscription, a workout mat, a body ball, an 8lb medicine ball, 3 resistance bands, a custom Wellmark BCBS gym bag, a scale, a food journal, $100 gift card to HyVee, ASICS shoes and socks, and exercise pants, shorts, jacket and shirt. 

And best of all in my eyes: 5 weeks of 1-on-1 training with Rebecca Meyer [who was the Biggest Loser Season 8 at-home winner]!!  At the end of the 5 week at-home fitness challenge the 4 finalists will run the Grand Blue Mile street run with Rebecca!

With that said, I am very fortunate to be the individual woman finalist!  There is also an individual male and 2 couples... Together we make up the 4 finalists!  Wendy told me that there was over 1,000 entries for the contest, the panel of judges narrowed the pool down to 12 semi-finalists, there were over 6,000 total votes casted, and, here were are, the 4 finalists!  Those are some amazing odds, huh?

For everyone else out there who missed their chance to enter the contest or were not one of the 12 semi-finalists, Wellmark BCBS is giving away 1 prize pack per week for 5 weeks!  For your chance to win all you have to do is "Like" them on Facebook!  What are you waiting for??
