A Fitterfirst Giveaway for Five Lucky Readers!

SandBells and a Soft Board are up for grabs, thanks to Fitterfirst!

Welcome to our first Back to Basics Week giveaway! Woot! Woot! And we’re kicking things off with a goodie! The fabulous fitness equipment company Fitterfirst is giving not one, not two, but FIVE freakin’ readers both SandBells and a Soft Board. Why both? Because they go together like peas and carrots, that’s why!

Recently featured on the Dr. Oz Show, the super-safe, parent-approved SandBell is a sandbag, a dumbbell, a barbell, a grip bag, a medicine ball, a slam ball, a balance pad and a kettlebell all in one! Designed to be thrown, stepped on, kicked or swung to help give you the best workout possible, you can try as hard as you like to smash these durable bags until they break (spoiler: they won’t), and you will get a killer workout in the process.

Then there’s the Soft Board. The Soft Board adds a whole new dimension to balance training—it gives you the sensation of floating on air. Made to enhance balance, coordination and overall agility, along with reduce the risk of sports injuries and increase lower-body strength, it’s the perfect supplement to the SandBells!

Believe us, you want to win this fit swag. And to do so, all you have to do is leave a comment and tell friend about it! Be it on Facebook, Twitter, text, in person or on the phone, tell a bud about this giveaway, and then leave us a comment with who you told and why you want to win. That’s it! Simple! We’ll pick five random U.S. readers to win in about a week. Winners will be notified in the comments and via email.

Sooo…good luck! Five winners! —Jenn

  17. Ivori says:

    I told my sisters and my twitter friends !

  18. Vicki says:

    I shared this on FB – would love to win it!

  19. I just told my twitter followers for my Blog! I would like to win this as I would love to try something new at home, especially since the fall is coming and that means less outdoors at times!

  20. Marissa says:

    I shared this with all of my friends via Pinterest! I hope I win because it would be a great addition to my marathon training schedule!

  21. Sarah says:

    I told my husband about this–I’ve only been in the fitness world since Feb 2012, but I’ve already lost over 40 pounds. I’m weighing (yes, pun intended) the pros and cons of purchasing a kettlebell–this would really help me out!

  22. Marissa says:

    I told all of my friends about this via Pinterest! I would like to win because it would be a great addition to my marathon training schedule!

  23. Kay says:

    Shared on FB,I would love this!

  24. This is amazing! I told my followers on Twitter as well as shared on my facebook page and personal profile. That way even if I don’t win, maybe people will know what to get me for Christmas. 🙂

    I would love to win this because I have been looking into getting some kettlebells and have atrocious balance. A giveaway that combines both is perfect!

  25. lindsay says:

    I told my cubemate and workout-buddy.

  26. Elizabeth says:

    I told my mom! And I’d love to win these because I need some cross training. I’m getting so bored of my bike rides and I need some new tools to keep me inspired. Thirty six pounds down, more to go!

  27. O wow! What an awesome give-a-way. I just watched the videos for the SandBells and the Soft Board on the Fitterfirst website. These would be the perfect addition to my workout routine, especially since I live in an apartment and slamming down a medicine ball is frowned upon 😉 I shared this give-a-way on twitter with all of my followers.

  28. Ashlee says:

    I told my mom about this!

    Man, I would love to win these! I’m in college and working. Usually I’m so busy that the gym is closed before I can get there! Having something like this in my dorm would really make my work-outs. 🙂

  29. Ang says:

    I shared this with my friends on Twitter, it would be awesome to win and get fit with them.

  30. Tiffany says:

    I called my mom and told her about this! I hope she looks into getting one because she has MS and could use the assistance with balance. I’m 25 and hope to win this because I could use the set to help me gain back the core muscles that I lost during chemotherapy last year. I finished in October and gained 40lbs. I am on my way to getting healthier but do not own any equipment to allow me to train at home. The Dr. said the more I work-out, the less chance the cancer will come back.

  31. Pavlina says:

    Good luck to all you US fans! We can only dream here in the UK 🙁

  32. Tam says:

    I want to win because it is not your usual gym equipment here! I told my cousin Sharon that this is something that you use at home, and it can break you out of an exercise rut with equipment that is excitedly different and new.

  33. Kristi says:

    I told my friends in a support group on Facebook. We are engaging in a 21 day exercise and sugar detox program and are trying to incorporate flexibility and strength training. These look awesome for home use and I would love to win a set as part of my very long term weight loss goals.

  34. Shared this on FaceBook!!! I’d love to win this and add it to our home gym!!!

  35. surrah says:

    Love your recommendations on equipment and love your giveaways. I will spread the word on Twitter.

  36. Alley says:

    I told Twitter because it’s so neat. I’d love to have this in my apartment because it takes up little room and I would have no excuse not to work out core and stabilizers. Plus, I’m always conscious of preventing injuries. I also like the idea of working on gripping for gym rock climbing. Exciting!!

  37. Kristin says:

    I re-tweeted on Twitter, my followers are interested in what I have to say! I’d love to have workout options at home, no more excuses!

  38. Stephanie O says:

    Sweet. I would love this and sharing with fronds at church.

  39. Debbie E. says:

    I tweeted to my followers what great swag this is! I have a Step360 that is so soft, I can lay on it and I bet the soft board is just as great. I absolutely love fitness toys like this that I can really use, so thanks for the opportunity to win! Yay, back to basics I go!

  40. Stephanie O says:

    Sweet. I would love this and sharing with friends at church.

  47. Jaynee Germond says:

    Forgot to mention in my other comment that I talked to my daughters about this and am not Tweeting it!
