  96. Since my Mom came off Army mobilization she has been working on a horse ranch to pay the rent. My brother and I help out, as does my baby sister, but there is never enough money for extras or to eat better, healthier food. Because of this and because we are in a remote area, my Mom hasn’t been able to keep up her regular exercise to keep her fit for Army duty. She is getting older and when she gained a little weight she had to go inactive just to stay on the Army books. She needs 3 years to retire, but she can’t get back into a unit until she loses some weight.

  162. I would love to win this package for the fact that I am trying to get certain family members involved with trying to live an active/healthy lifestyle. I have lost about 100 lbs. and tend to offend certain family members when I try to get them involved. Maybe with a gift, they will see my sincerity and genuine care for their well being. I would honestly keep one gift for me to keep me motivated on this weight loss journey!

  163. I would love to win one of the packages because, it would be a terrific motivation to start the New Year workout, get healthier, and to prepare my beach body for spring break and my birthday in march! I really want to spend more time outdoors, and at the beach and not feel pressured by how I look. Plus all of this items looks easy to use and I could add thi sto my daily routine!

  175. As a pre-school fitness teacher, I work with over 300 kids a week. We learn how important it is to be fit and that it’s fun to exercise and be healthy. These great items would encourage me in my workouts and to stay active for my students, too.

  176. I’m a law student and marathoner with little time and even less money. Running is one of the ways that I keep my stress level to a minimum, especially during finals. Unforuntately, it gets dark and icy early during Chicago winters, which keeps me from being able to get out on the trail safely. Not only would this allow me to work out at home on those days where it’s too icy/dark to run, but it would really help me to maintain a consistent level of activity through some of the most stressful times.

  177. My husband and I have been trying to come up with some ideas on how we could get out of the rut we are in and how we need to start thinking more about our health and physical fitness.

  178. I am a new racer and I lack a lot of the high tech gear that would help me train.

  179. I am currently in nursing school and attempting to stay active and keep off the 50 pounds I have lost. My husband is military; our finances go to support our family and my education, so there is little extra for new things.

  180. i would live to have all these items!! what a great motivation, i wouldnt miss any of my workouts!!!!
