New You for the New Year Challenge! - January 1-31, 2012 - $6000 in total prizes!


The New You for the New Year Challenge comes on the heels of The 12 Days of Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness which was completed Dec. 20-31, 2011. The 12 Days program consisted of 12 days of five daily features from articles to workouts to meal plans, etc. combining for 60 total articles designed to create structure, focus and motivation for all participants to help with New Years Resolution achievement.


At the completion of the 12 Days of Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness, the process of achieving New Year’s Resolutions begins. The website http://www.veganbodybuilding.com will provide and facilitate an online place to post goals, updates, journals, photos, and track progress. All participants keeping an updated journal for the entire month of January will receive a gift package comprised of gifts, products and tools to continue to support the participant’s goals. Participants are encouraged to keep their online journal going after the first month of their program to assist their own personal health and fitness goals.


Ready for a New You for the New Year? Get started today!


By January 1, what will you do with the tools you have been given during the 12 Days? Well, we hope you will be inspired to become a http://www.veganbodybuilding.com/forum member (it’s free and takes 2 minutes to register!). It’s a new YEAR and a new YOU!


So, what do YOU want to accomplish this year? Maybe you want to lose some weight. Maybe you don’t know where to start in the gym. Or maybe you’re already a pro in the gym, but not sure how to take it to the next level of competition. The point is, everyone has their own goal, but with commitment and work, they’re all possible…and Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness is here to help.


To get involved, create a profile on our website forum here: http://www.veganbodybuilding.com/forum. Then create your own training journal to track your progress.


See you at the finish line!

Thanks for joining the forum!


We started this program on the 1st and will likely only have prizes for those who started on that date and completed the entire month-long challenge.


You're still welcome to enter in the biweekly contests and of course encouraged to keep an online journal, but with already more challengers who started at the start date than we expected, we won't have any additional prizes for those who joined late.


We will, however, likely have another challenge in the summer and next winter. Those will be announced far in advance.


All the best!

Thanks! We look forward to doing many more of these challenges and possibly some other shorter challenges, and many more community contests and other projects which help building community and get people closer to achieving their goals.


Thanks for being here!
