    shame i wont be able to get that over here in germany but i did by the cook book.like what i have read so far but wished there was more photos of the recipes.have you ever thought of getting a book out just of success stories or like a dairy/planner with a success story oposite each side of the dairy/planner.one page a day split in to hours so you can either use it as a termine planner or a tracker for food and exercise.that would mean publishing 365 success stories and each time a person used the planner they would be reminded, motivated and inspired by the people who have succeeded.i know i would buy the book for one.you could even at the top of the page do a quote or affeirmation for the day.just an idea.i also have several title ideas for it if you are interested.

Coach Nicole's DVD Available at Target: Save $3, Earn 250 SparkPoints!

Thursday, December 29, 2011



Good morning, SparkPeople! Coach Nicole here with a BIG announcement.

I am thrilled to say that my new SparkPeople workout DVD is now available! As if that news wasn't exciting enough, there's more: You'll also find it at every Target store nationwide. [Happy dance!] That's right, "28 Day Boot Camp," which includes the best, most efficient, fat-burning workouts I've created to date, on the shelves of Target stores nationwide starting this week! (Can I get a WooHoo?!)

SparkPeople is very pleased to have entered an exclusive DVD deal with Target stores. This partnership is an important milestone in the growth of our small company. The fact that our DVD will be seen on prominent end cap displays in Target stores nationwide means we'll reach countless more people, which will help us in our mission to Spark millions of People to live healthier lives.

As a thank you to Target for believing in our DVD enough to stock it on their shelves, we are encouraging all of our members who plan to purchase the DVD to get it from a Target store, if possible. As an incentive, we're offering a $3 off coupon you can use in-store and an exclusive 250 SparkPoints for DVDs purchased at Target stores. Also, when you buy your DVD at a Target store, you’ll also get an instant 20% savings off their Gaiam and Reebok fitness accessories, so you can get the DVD and your dumbbells (or any other fitness accessory you've been eying) all in one stop!

Buying the "28 Day Boot Camp" DVD isn't just a fun and inexpensive way for you to get fit at home with "America's Top Personal Trainer to Watch" (yep, that's me). It's also an amazing opportunity to help us Spread the Spark. We earn revenue from sales of this DVD, which will help keep the site free. And by buying your DVD at a Target store, you can increase the chances of other great SparkPeople products being offered in stores near you in the future. Wouldn't that be awesome?

To learn more about the DVD, watch a preview and get your $3 coupon, click here. You don't have to be a member to use this special coupon, so please spread the word.

I hope you enjoy my new DVD. I can't wait to hear what you think about it!

Coach Nicole

      This is a general comment, not on this post, because I found it difficult to find a place for a general comment.

    I was quite impressed by the statement I read at the top of the first page I saw on this site that the site was free because.... However, that statement was completely misleading, as I began to suspect when the "health survey" asked marketing questions. This site is free because you have popup ads and a store, plus whatever contribution you may make.

    I still intend to continue with the site, with the awareness that data about me is being used to target ads to me (per the advertise page) and that not everything will be as it says it is.
