FBG 5-Year Birthday Monday Giveaway: 5 Muscle Ropes!

This killer workout could be all yours...

This killer workout could be all yours…

We told you the big giveaways were coming for our Five-Year Birthday Week, and we are starting off with a bang! Or a whip, more accurately! Because our first giveaway is for a product we just recently raved about: Muscle Ropes.

Ladies, we love, love, love these ropes. Just a few minutes whipping them up, down, side to side and however else you can move them, and your legs, arms and core will be burning—and your heart will be pumpin’. They’re one heck of a good workout, and you’ll feel like a bad-ass using them.

And Muscle Ropes is giving away FIVE (Five, get it?) of its Lightning Ropes to five lucky U.S. readers in celebration of our birthday. Retailed at $110, this high-performance polypropylene workout rope is ideal for high-intensity, high-rep workouts. Lightning is best suited for indoor use—and won’t shed at all.

To enter to win a rope of your own, all you have to do is spread the love! Tell five (There’s that number again!) people you know and love about FBG and/or this giveaway, and then leave a comment below with who you told and why you want a Lightning Rope. Share any way you’d like to—Facebook, email, in person, Twitter, Pinterest, text, whatevs!

We’ll randomly pick winners in about a week and announce them in the comments…good luck to all, and stay tuned tomorrow for another amazeballs giveaway! —Jenn

  1. Shannon says:

    I posted the link on my Facebook page, private group for healthy living with over 500 women, retweeted and told 6 women in my office! I want a lightning rope because my gym uses these in circuit training sometimes and they are a GREAT workout. I would live to have my own to do it more frequently.

  2. Pam says:

    Hi: I posted news about the giveaway on my Facebook page , tweeted news about the giveaway and also emailed a few friends. I would like the ropes because I have used ropes at my gmail and I love them. These would make a great addition to my home gym.

  3. Just wanted to stop in to wish you a Happy 5th birthday!!! And what an awesome giveaway. I’ve always thought those ropes looked like a kickass workout. A bit too busy myself to enter but I know the winners are going to be PSYCHED!

  4. Jenny Sullivan says:

    I retweeted everyone, especially work people. We are all involved in healthy challenges at work. By the way Happy 5th Birthday. 5 is my lucky number so I am hoping it’s a sign.

  5. Jessica Mitchell says:

    HAPPY 5th Birthday Fit Girls!
    I shared your blog with my bridesmaids/girlfriends (Allie, Sarah, Sara, Candice, Lisa and Meghan) and friends at work. Everyone at work knows I live by your blog, I get my favorite health tips and workouts from you lovely ladies. I would love to get my hands on those Muscle Ropes, I tried them out at a local gym and feel in love with what kind of work out they give you.

    Thanks Ladies for putting so much love into this blog. 🙂

  6. Laura says:

    Happy birthday!!! That’s so exciting for you.

    I tweeted, shared to my personal facebook and to my 3 private GGS Facebook pages for ambassadors and crew.

    And… I want muscle ropes so that I can attach them to one of the giant trees I have in my yard and get a killer workout in! I haven’t felt like being an actual gym rate lately, so anything I can do to bring the gym to me, the better!

  7. penny says:

  8. I shared with all 10,930 of my Followers on my page Better Believe Fit!!!! I hope that many shares get me some ropes!!!! I WANT!!!

  9. Shared this on my business FB page Fitfannypack with over 2,600 followers. I have never tried these but as a mommy that works/works out at home having a fitness tool like this to use would be awesome! Happy 5th Birthday!


  10. Janice says:

I just left a big gym and am starting my in-home training business and also lead an amazing group of cub scouts. They would be awesome for teamwork drills for the boys or obstacle courses…I can think of so many ways to work these in…and I live in Iowa…..so maybe I could use them for turning my tiny dogs into sled dogs? Maybe not. I will find a use for them every day no matter what, mark my words!

    I want these ropes to add to the collection of items my trainer has for the Sunday cross fit sessions. He has a set that are wayyyy too big for the women in the group, so right now, only the men get to use these fun, but tough, ropes for the work out!

  78. Meagan Henrich says:

    Hey FBG! I will tell you why I am the most deserving, curvy-bottomed, fit girl out there!

    I am soon-to-be graduate of Honours Kinesiology (top 5% of my class too!), currently writing my Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist examination, applying to schools to become a Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine, and eat/breath/sleep everything fitness related. I am just starting my own business coaching/personal training local athletes for hockey/rock climbing/skiing/running/etc and am up to my eyeballs in student debt. I really, really…. really, really.. could use some love and help starting up my own gym. I’ve used these ropes before at a gym I worked at and I absolutely adore them for conditioning! If I win these, I can guarantee you they will be put to very good use daily! I will send you a photo a day as proof!

    I’ve always shared FBG with my clients, academic peers, and web based social network (FB, Twitter, 3 blogs). I forwarded this giveaway/website to my client list of females (18 females aged 13-45).

    Thanks for your consideration!

  79. Lea says:

    I told all the girls at work. My youngest wants these so bad! She asked for a set after seeing them on The Biggest Loser. She wants to be a trainer when she grows up. So she is starting by whipping mom into shape!

  80. STUFT Mama says:

    Well, I just tweeted AND told my cat, hubby and two boys that I NEED one of these. Saw them on Kelly and Michael this morning. Great giveaway!

  81. Ashley says:

    I would love some more workout things to keep my sanity from staying home all day with kids and writing a dissertation. I told my husband, kids, mom, and twitter peeps 🙂

  82. Mary Jane says:

    Just told my running crew about these ropes!!! Awesome product for a great workout. I would love to win this!

  83. Mary Jane says:

    I just told my running crew about ropes. Awesome product for a great workout!!! i would love to win.

  84. Amanda B says:

    I love FBG and tell everyone I know about the site, I also update my husband daily on intersting e-mails I recieve. I’ve recently got a new job and told all the girls there (and a few guys) about FBG!! I love muscle ropes and have been obsessed with them ever since my first use. I remember seeing people use the at my old gym (which closed. :[) and finally decided to give them a try, from that day on I used them everyday. I miss using them like crazy and constantly talk about buying my own.

  85. Jessica says:

    I posted to Facebook, my Facebook Page- The Get Fit Mom, and on Twitter.
    I have a serious fascination with these ropes! They are at my gym and I often want to try them out, but I feel intimidated. If I get a set of my own, I can practice in my backyard with my fiance and learn how to use them at the gym. Once I don’t need them anymore, I would donate them to a Boys & Girls Club or YMCA and pass on the fitness!!

  86. Tammi says:

    I tell my boot camp girls about FBG great sight all the time, that’s over 50 girls! I also told my FB friends and Boot Camp FB pages! We also use muscle ropes in our class! Ya we are pretty bad ass ;)They are great ropes and a great fun and intense work out! I would LOVE to have more to put to use in our gym!

    OMG!!! I’ve never been so excited for a giveaway! I’ve been dying to get my hands on these muscle ropes, but I just can’t quite afford them and my gym doesn’t have them either! I just adopted a new fit and healthy lifestyle about 6 months ago and I am SO passionate about it and eager to get my body into the best shape of my life! I see what amazing results these muscle ropes can help produce and am so envious of those who use them!

    I spread the word about the lightning ropes giveaway to Amber Hernandez, Lucas James, Tyler Lynch, Sherry Busby, Philip Hodousek and Richard Federer.
