Thursday Giveaway: 2 ActivMotion Bars

Clear Bar-1On Monday we gave away a bike (yes, a freakin’ bike), on Tuesday we gave away a pair of Brooks Running shoes, on Wednesday we gave away some huge feel-good book prize packs and today what are we giving away? None other than the chance to get STRONG. With an ActivMotion Bar of your own!

If you guys haven’t tried or seen an ActivMotion Bar before, let us tell you, they’re awesome. They may look like your standard weighted bars, but they are anything but that. They actually have rolling steel weights inside of them, which creates something called “active resistance.” This means that your muscles, especially those in your core, have to work harder to stabilize your entire body, giving you  improved core strength, range of motion, balance and mind-muscle activation.

Just check them out in motion here! They have a lighter version (4-and-a-half pounds) that’s great to use for Pilates, yoga or beginners, and heavier versions for more advanced exercisers — or those fighting zombies. Like Tony Horton. Prices of these start at $119.99, which gets you a bar and two DVDs. And, guess what? We’re giving a lighter version and a heavier version away!

How to Win Your Own ActivMotion Bar + Two Workout DVDs

Entering to win this one is pretty darn easy. Simply tell us which version of the ActivMotion Bar you’d like (light or heavy) and why you want to win it. We’ll pick a U.S. reader to win a light and a heavy bar in about a week and contact him/her directly via email and also in the comments. If you want a second entry for another chance to win, feel free to share this post on your social media accounts and leave the link to your update in another comment.

And, bonus! Use promo code “FBG15” to save 15 percent off all ActivMotion orders. Expires June 22, 2016. —Jenn

  20. I’ve love the heavier one so I can keep lifting those weights, even when I cant get to the gym

  21. I like the heavier ones and have wanted these since the birth of my second child…. 2 and a half years ago lmao. I did t25 to get back in shape and now it feels like its harder to stay in shape. The light one is a little too light to keep myself growing a little bit.

    Thanks for the chance!

  22. I’m interested in the heavy active motion bar, I’ve never seen nor heard of it until today and I would be very interested in adding it to my exercise program.

  23. Go for the heavy version, would be amazing to share with my boyfriend who finally, after 6 years together started working out with me recently.

  24. I would be delighted with either set to introduce variety into my workouts. I agree with Tony, “… more core, more better!”

  25. I would like the lighter version. Am just starting to get into Yoga and it would be a great asset to my workouts.

  26. I would love the light bar. I need the extra exercise. I am in grad, working and stressed!!!!

  27. Yeah! The heavy ActivMotion Bar would be ideal to put in the back seat when we travel! I have been lifting Dumbbells for several years. This would be a fun way to “mix things up” at home too! Especially since it engages in more muscles! Woot!

  28. I would love to win the Light ActivMotion Bar. From the product description and review this looks great for a person like me who is someone is a a rookie to fitness and can be very intimidated by fitness equipment!

  29. I would love to win the light bar since I think the lighter one would fit me better personally! THanks!

  30. I’d love to win the heavy bar! Weight lifting is my favorite workout. There’s nothing better than the feeling you get after lifting. This would be great to do on my off days to keep the intensity up!

  31. The heavy bar would be my preference. I’m used to heavier weights so this would be better for my workout routine.

  32. I’d like to win the light bar b/c I just turned 63 and I NEED to build some strength … strong women gotta stay strong!

  34. I have a product that I will donate for a give away.

    Dr. McBabe’s Treadmill Desks are $79, portable, and universal design that adapts to most treadmills within seconds, creating a functional treadmill desk anywhere.

  35. I’d choose the light version of the ActivMotion Bar, since I like low-impact exercise.

  36. I’m not sure how heavy the “heavy” version of this bar is – the website lists weights from 4.5 lbs to 18 lbs. I would love a 10 lb bar, but will take anything I can get.

  37. I would love to win the light bar because I am just beginning my weight loss journey and need all the help I can get.

  38. I would like the heavy bar….this looks like a great alternative to the slosh pipe I was going to build. Classier alternative to add to our gym! Lol

  41. I’d like to win the heavier version, because I have really been hitting the weights this year, and want to continue to progress. 🙂

  42. I would like to enter for Thursday’s drawing… would love to get the heavy version so I can keep working on my fitness and change up routines a bit 🙂

  43. I would love to win the heavier ActiveMotion bar to add to my slowly growing home gym. Just a couple of days ago I was thinking about how much I miss those body bar classes my old gym used to have. I LOVE that feeling like your body is totally jelly after a great workout like those were. For my home workouts I usually stick with my trusty kettle bells. After years of rowing crew I have fantastic legs (if I do say so myself!), but I tend to slack a bit when it comes to the exercises that target my arms and core. The Active Motion bar would be just the thing to use to help me change my focus to those areas that really need more attention than they are getting now! Please! I promise I’ll make good use of this prize!

  44. I first saw these at an IDEA conf. I went to. We used them in one of the workshops I took and they are pretty awesome! I used the 8 or 10 lb and it was perfect for what we were doing! I would love to use them with clients!

  45. Would love to win the heavy bar!!! I recently started working from home and definitely do not move as much as I did when in an office. This would be a super huge help to pick up a few times a day to burn some calories! 🙂

    Awesome giveaway again!! Thanks much!!

  46. I would love to win the lighter bar. I am a SAHM with a 2 and 3 year old that make it harder to get in a workout. The bar would let me get in a quick one while they are playing.
    Thanks for the giveaway!!

  47. So I think the light bar will work with my Piyo
    Seems like it would be easier to ude

  48. I would really appreciate winning the heavy bar for my husband. He has spoken about these bars many times and how much work is required to stabilize his core. He has a very bad back and has had to have surgery on his back due to being hit by a tractor trailer. These exceptional bars are used with his physical therapy. It would be great to continue his therapy at home. Thank you.

  49. I would love the light Bar, I would love to win because I have 3 kids so I can’t always leave to do a workout and inevitably getting movement in makes me a better person of myself/better mom and wife:-)

  50. I would love to win the heavier version since my New Year’s resolution was to put on some more muscle and so far, I have! This bar would kick it up for me and put a little more muscle on my scrawny arms and back especially. Thanks!

  51. I would like the light bar. I would like to win it because I am fast approaching 67 and feel the need to do more weight work. Thanks for the chance to try to win.

  52. I would like to be entered to win the light one. I’ve been swimming and it would allow me to strengthen my arms on days when I’m not working out in the pool.

  53. Having one of these active bars would be AWESOME because my 10 year old son has decided he wants to start lifting weights! I think we’d start with the light one and move up from there. Best part is we can share the equipment!

  54. I would be happy to win either the light or heavy set. This looks like a great workout to do at home when I do not have time to get to the gym.

  55. I would like to win the lighter version because I’m always looking to try new ways of working out and getting strong.

  56. I would like to win the heavy version so I can start building and toning muscle.
