Get Fit With This FitKit Giveaway

This giveaway is a part of our second-annual New Year, New Rear Week to help you to be fitter, healthier and a touch (okay, a lot!) more awesome in 2012. Read all New Year, New Rear posts here!

Wouldn’t it be nice if everything you needed to get fit came in a nice little portable package? Oh, wait, it does—it’s the FitKit! We’ve already talked about how much we adore the FitKit, so it only makes sense that we’d take them up on their offer to give one away to readers for New Year, New Rear Week. The kit includes an exercise band, jump rope, resistance tube, pedometer, reflective arm band, access to tons of exercise moves and more.

Not to sound like an infomercial or anything—but wait, there’s more! The winner of this giveaway will also receive a free one-year membership to the FitKitCLUB, an online fitness resource center that provides nutrition programs, dynamic workouts and cutting-edge fitness info. Yep, it’s pretty much everything you need to be your fittest self ever.

Leave a comment below telling us why you need the FitKit and subscription to FitKitCLUB, and we’ll select one random U.S. commenter to win it! Winner will be announced in the comments and via email. Get to commenting, FBGs! —Jenn

  1. I need this subscription because I just had a 10 lb 9 oz baby boy and I would like to get back to a healthy weight. I would also like to be an example for my family especially my oldest son who considered to be overweight for his age.

  2. The fit kit would be awesome to take with me traveling or I could use the pedometer at work to count my steps! (I’m a nurse, there’s a lot of them)

  3. I have two toddlers, and there are days when my family obligations prevent me from making it to the gym. The Fitkit would be so helpful in keeping up with my fitness goals when my schedule will only allow me to workout at home!

  4. Not only would the FitKit be very convenient to take with me wherever I went, but I actually just misplaced pedometer and have been shopping for a resistance band all in the last month. I’d love to have access to the FitKitCLUB for all of the great tips and motivation to get me to try new things!

  5. I love the idea behind this! I could really use this because due to financial reason’s I just canceled my gym membership and am now doing at home workouts. So far I’m loving it because I dont have as much of an excuse not to do it having what I need here. Now to build up my options so that I can get more results at home!

  6. I would love this kit! I’ve been working a crazy schedule, and am not always free when the gym is open. That, and I have a lot of travel in my future for the next year, so this would be great to bring along!

  18. I lost 200 pounds through diet and a TON of exercise and have kept it off for almost 4 years. My current job requires me to travel 50% of the time, at least, and I struggle to get my exercise in as often as I need/want to. I’ve looked at the Fitkit many times & have thought it would be a perfect way to bring my fitness regime on the road with me! I’d love to win!! :)

  19. I would love the FitKit! I tore my Tricep tendon last year and spent the entire time trying to heal it. Without luck I ended up having surgery 4 weeks ago.

By the time I land in a hotel, I can only hope their treadmill works! I’ve lost 80 lbs, but regained 23 this past fall when my schedule involved airports, hotels & convenience food. This kit & subscription would be new, refreshing arsenal that I would surely benefit from!!!

  38. I’m struggling to find a gym I love near my new house, so it would be great to have this for at home workouts!

  40. I would love to use this kit while traveling. I could really use the bands while jogging in the dark.

  46. I love how this kit has the basics and includes online resources. Many times I would have equipment but no guidance or access to videos but not the right equipment! This looks awesome to do on busy days when I’m forced to workout at home at a strange hour of the night!

  47. I would LOVE to have this to take with me on those days where I’ll be running and waiting all day and not have a chance to stop at the gym or be home to work out! And nothing is better than support!!!!

  52. Dear Fit Bottomed Babes,
    Besides my job which requires a lot of travel, I’m engaged to a wonderful man who lives in the Netherlands (where we are marrying in June). Rarely do a few weeks go by when I’m not away for a week or more. While I’m devoted to my gym at home, it’s a real struggle to workout while traveling. This kit would be just the thing for my already over-stuffed suitcase… as well as a great inspiration for losing the few extra pounds and making those wedding dress dreams come true! Thanks for listening!

  53. This would be perfect for me…I am not a gym goer, but instead love to workout at home, as well as trying to get to the park to do a bit of walking. An online program would be fantastic, I am one who needs structure and a little nudge along the way.

  54. I would love this! I’ve recently lost access to a car, so I’m not able to make it down to my gym any longer. This would definitely help facilitate workouts at home! Great giveaway.

  55. I would love this! I have a fair amount of weight to lose and not much money. However, I love anything fitness related. Thanks for the opportunity!

  56. Recovering (again) from a recurring knee injury. Have had weight issues since I was in 3rd grade but now my health is really bad and I am making changes, so anything that will help, I will gladly take. I am changing eating habits, using apps, books, etc. Working out is difficult with a knee injury but I am doing my best. I don’t live in the safest area, so things I can do inside are great and I lost my job so I can’t afford a gym. The online program would be awesome since it is something I can also use from home and will keep me interested in continuing towards a healthier me.

  57. This is perfect! I recently moved into a new neighborhood that only has one small gym and no fitness classes. Trying to get into a new routine of working out at home with videos, a treadmill and info I can find. This would be great for helping me get started!

  58. Could really use this. Lost 150lbs but have been stuck at that mark for a while. 20 more to go and this would really reinvigerate my workout routine :)

  59. I really need this for when I am travelling and on the go. I can bring this to a hotel or to my sister’s house.

  60. My school provided gym is not convenient, so anything that would help me with working out at home is amazing!

  61. This would be awesome! I am having my first child in July…I’m going to need something new. THis is perfect, compact, and I can travel with it! :) Thank you for the opportunity!

  62. I’d love to win this set! I started my journey on December 15 and I have limited resources- so a win here would help along my progress!! :) BTW this is my new fave site I love all the reviews.

  63. I need something like this because I realized I really need to add exercise into my diet plan in order to lose my last 15 pounds…but I need some help!

  66. This is a really cool idea. After I looking it up, I Would love to have this, Why? Well, I try to workout doing something different every few days, i would love to add this to those workouts. I’m finally losing my holiday/stress weight and this would be a great help. The one yr membership would just help me use use the kit properly.

  67. New motivation. It is very overwhelming when you are overweight and you are unable to afford luxuries like a personal trainer. Of course the Internet has abundance of information and tools but providing something that is simple to follow would help the process!

  68. I would like to have it so I can get totally back into exercise after I recover from my second foot surgery.

  69. I want to add the FitKit to my workout regime and shake things up a bit! I’m down 18 pounds due to a combination of lifting, cardio and the ever important nutrition. And the FitKit may be Very helpful to my 93 year old Grandma, who I live with, who is recovering from having a pacemaker put in the day after Christmas. She doesn’t want to walk, can’t go to the pool for the next 60 days and is just very frustrated and my concern she is losing muscle mass.

  70. Motivation! Something I desperately need. And, there’s nothing like new toys to jump-/re-start a fitness routine. Also, I’m a social worker, which means that I am out in the field a lot during the day–a Fitkit would enable to me to work out anytime, anywhere. Thanks for such a great giveaway!

  71. I have been in a rut because we moved recently. I need to get back to a routine and I want to be healthy today on.
