Last year the Superhero Fitness Challenge made a splash at C2E2 (Chicago's BEST Entertainment and Pop Culture convention) by being the only health and fitness related booth there! People engaged in our fitness challenge and earned great prizes! We brought an excitement for living healthier lives into an area where it's been pretty non-existent up until recently. This year we are back! We coming with a prize wheel in tow and people can spin to win healthy snack prizes, t-shirts, reusable bags, and even enter for their chance to win a copy of the home fitness program, P90X! Be sure to stop by booth 1377 to try your odds, and take away freebies (including some free health and fitness info PLUS a sneak preview of the upcoming comic book, Frollie's Fitness Follies!). We will also be hosting a hula hoop fitness workshop (Friday, 2:30-4:00pm, Interactive Room W375b at C2E2)!
The Superhero Fitness Challenge was started in early 2012 by Melanie Bolen, owner of Personal Fitness At Home (started in 2007), and certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor (as well as life-long nerd, comic book collector, and more recent cosplay enthusiast)... and author of this blog!
The main purpose of the Superhero Fitness Challenge is to bring awareness and education into the Pop Culture convention scene. Through contests and free giveaways the Superhero Fitness Challenge hopes to get people excited to learn more about nutrition and fitness and start making lifestyle changes for improved health.
For those who are ready to get started on a program, the Superhero Fitness Challenge offers coaching and home programs to help people reach their goals (check out our transformations gallery in this blog post or go to http://www.beachbodycoach.com/turbomelanieb to see some of the programs available). Contact me to help you pick a program that will fit your goals and lifestyle (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Starting in 2013, Cynthia Narcisi, illustrator and artist, and Melanie Bolen have started to collaborate on a fitness inspired comic book known as Frollie's Fitness Follies. Panels will become available in 2013, with our hope of being able to offer a full book at C2E2 in 2014. Learn more and stay posted on our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/superherofitnesschallenge. Frollie's Fitness Follies will follow the adventures of Frollie, the calico panda, as he tries to find a love for fitness as well as the motivation to hit his goals.
