Blackmores giveaway

Blackmores have very kindly provided me with some great products from their new sports range for another giveaway. Two lucky readers will grab a fantastic prize pack, consisting of:

• Blackmores Sports Bag
• Blackmores Sports Towel
• Protein Shaker
• a 1 month subscription to My Blackmores online sport program and the new book Getting the Edge.

I received one of these packs myself a few days ago, and I’m pretty impressed. In fact, the sports bag was so appealing that Bike Boy snaffled it for himself (how rude!). He attempted to claim the gym towel too, until I hid it from him. If he’s lucky I may allow him to use some of the whey…

The protein powders have a good nutritional balance, high in protein and low in fat and carbohydrate. ProDefinition contains a blend of whey concentrate, soy isolate, whey isolate and casein. There’s the usual amino acid profile, and both products have CoQ10 antioxidant blend added. The ProDefinition is marketed towards women, but there’s no reason why men can’t use it (I’ve never really got the whole gender-specific protein thing, but I guess it’s just one of those advertising things). It’s berry flavoured and tastes pretty good.

ProPower contains only whey concentrate and is vanilla flavoured. It comes in a box of 10 single serve sachets, which would be really handy to throw into a sports bag with a shaker if you wanted to have a protein shake immediately after training. This product is marketed towards sports people, but that doesn't mean you have to be a serious athlete to use it.

I’ve yet to trial the My Blackmores system, as there’s been a bit of a communication hiccup there and I can’t log in as yet. So I’ll have to review it at a later stage, once I’ve had a play around with it. I like the concept though – it features speciality programs, including 5km, 10km and half marathon running programs, Bike Fit, Racquet Fit, Hike Fit, Ball Fit and Golf Fit. And the e-book contains workouts and recipes to help you achieve your goals.

If you’d like the chance to win one of these prize packs, just hop over to my Facebook page and “like” it if you’re not already a fan, then leave a comment on this post, telling me what your health, exercise or sports goal is. Easy!

The competition is open to Australian residents only and closes at 6:00pm Australian Eastern Standard Time on Monday 23rd April. Only one entry per person is permitted. The winner will be chosen at random and announced here on this blog on Tuesday 24th April. If the winner’s postal address is not received by Friday 27th April, their prize will be forfeited and a re-draw will take place.

There are two prizes to be awarded, with an approximate value of $125 each. Postage within Australia is also included.

This is not a sponsored post, and no cash payment was received to promote these products, however I did receive free goods from Blackmores.
