61 days ago we kicked off our BlackBerry Fitness Challenge. An ambitious undertaking to say the least, but an event where those participating would be winners just for taking part. Of course, CrackBerry and our friends at Gym Technik upped the stakes and provided some extra incentive with some extra awesome prizes to compete for. If you check back to our original contest post, you'll remember there were three contests tied to the event - a random winner (based on a random tweet from all #blackberryfitchallenge tweets), the most workouts winner (based on most tweets) and the best before/after photos. Read on for an update and to see who pushed out the most workouts in 60 days!
Contest #2 Winner - Most Workouts: At the end of 60 days, the award for most workouts goes to morganrawks, who basically lived in the gym with a stellar 156 workouts (tweets). Honorable mentions go to Trigga_83, jajinko27, and gavin_campbell who all worked out like mad too (136, 87, 57 workout tweets respectively). Great effort!!!
All four contestants above will take home a free Premium License of Gym Technik, while morganrawks will also take home a new pair of Nike Free 5.0 or Vibram Five Finger shoes and $100 of free accessories from ShopCrackBerry.com. Wicked Prizes! To the winners - we'll follow up soon with details on getting your prizes.
Contest #1 Follow Up - One More Week to Tweet!! For the random tweet winner contest, we've decided to extend your chance to win by one week until August 6th (we want to entice everyone to workout this week too while the best before/after decisions are being made!) On the 6th we'll randomly pick a winner. Don't forget, if your free trial of Gym Technik has expired it's your last chance to take advantage of the premium discount Gym Technik is offering exclusively for this competition giving 40% off, so a yearly fee of just $28.80 (ie. $2.4/month). The cbsummerchallenge code will expire on the 6th as well. The code can be used at www.gymtechnik.com/store
Be sure to keep working out and tweeting your workouts with #blackberryfitchallenge. Stay tuned to CrackBerry for our winner announcement on this one next week.
Contest #3 Follow Up - Best Before / After Results!! If you submitted your before photos and want want to put your 60 transformation into the contest running for best before / after, you'll want to get your photos uploaded to GymTechnik asap. Gym Technik will be sending out a note with instructions. Keep it locked to CrackBerry for more follow up on this one. We shall soon be seeing who is in the running to take home that new FREE BlackBerry of choice and other awesome prizes.
That's it for now!! HUGE PROPS go to everybody who took part in the 60 Day BlackBerry Fitness challenge. Doing it over the summer months made it really hard. I know for me I was pretty much on the road for 30 of the 60 days. Definitely not winning the best before / after here, but at least I didn't go downhill which if this event wouldn't have been taking place would likely have been the case!
