Time to Get “Fit For FinCon” – Take the Challenge!
Attention all #FinCon12 attendees, speakers, sponsors, and media members!
We’re very excited to announce a health and fitness challenge that leads up to the conference we’ve all been waiting for.
We all know that first impressions are extremely important – especially when it comes to meeting new people. Here is your chance to make a great impression with the entire Financial Blogging Community!
Many of us are stuck all day at a desk job, and then come home and sit in front of a computer for another 3-4 hours, managing our blogs. It is sometimes hard to get in the proper exercise and in some cases avoid the unhealthy convenience foods that allow us to get everything done.
As we all know, this is an extremely unhealthy way to live. It’s even worse for those of us who have taken on blogging as a full-time job.
It’s time to take back our health!!!
From now until the start of the conference, we are issuing a challenge to all of you financial bloggers who are looking to begin (or ignite) a healthy lifestyle.
We have challenges for those who are looking to lose weight, start running/walking consistently, or get in regular exercise. If these challenges do not appeal to you feel free to customize your own challenge. What do YOU want to accomplish?
Accept one challenge, accept them all!
You can fill out the entry form on any of these participating blogs:
- Fat Guy Skinny Wallet | Khaleef Crumbley
- Optimal Health Pro – Become an EXPERT at Health | Brad Chaffee
- Health and Wealth Makeover | Adam Underhill
Please join us on our Fit for FinCon Facebook page, where you can announce your personal goals, keep us updated with your progress, and declare victory as you surpass each milestone. We will also be using the page to make announcements regarding the challenge, and also posting health, nutrition, and fitness tips/articles along the way.
After signing up, you can do lots of things to get involved and keep each other motivated and excited, including: posting updates, pictures, and videos on Twitter using the following hashtags (#FitforFinCon, #PFworkout, #OptimalHealth), on the “Fit For FinCon” Facebook page, and even your own blog! (just email us and we will be sure to promote your post)
Speaking of pictures, we are planning to take pictures at the conference of all the challengers, which can serve as “after” pics for this challenge, and also before pics for #FinCon13.
Start a similar challenge for your readers. Let them follow your progress. After all, what good is wealth without the health to enjoy it right?
