Create an Inspiration Contest

23 Jan

When I first began my journey, I looked to and it’s Transformations of the Week as Motivation. Every other Friday, I’d get on my computer at work and keep checking until a new Transformation came out. I couldn’t wait! My favorite part of the entire story of someone’s Journey was their “Advice to Others.” What I realized is that we all go through a different, unique journey of our own, but every person’s “Advice to Others” Statement was what I connected with, without fail, every time.

WHAT: Fierce Fighters, this is YOUR chance to Motivate, Inspire, Encourage and Empower others with your “BEST ADVICE.” In one statement, write your most Motivating or Inspirational Advice that can help others achieve their Health & Fitness Goals.

Sample Photo and Advice to Others:

In life, you are the only person who will always be with yourself. Choose a healthy lifestyle for her, work hard at progressing, never stop getting better and you will give yourself the greatest gift you are able to: love for oneself. Life is short. Start being who you want to be now! ~Ashley Johns, taken from her Transformation of the Week, 2/2010 For full Transformation Story, go here:

WHO CAN ENTER: You! Fierce Fighters. Friends of Fierce Fighters. Anyone & Everyone. We all have a story. You do NOT have to have lost weight to enter this. You can be anyone who has advice to others on how to move forward with health and fitness. The beauty of this contest is that we all have something different to say.

RULES: Email your Advice to Others Statement and one picture representing you and your Health. Email me at *double check spelling, as people often misspell the first part of the email. DO NOT POST TO FIERCE FORWARD WALL. I will put all the entries together and create a Photo Album that will be uploaded to the Wall on the Start Date of the Contest.

HOW YOU WIN THE FABULOUS PRIZES: On Friday, January 27th, I will upload the Photo Album with all of the Entries and the voting will begin!

8. ASHLEY JOHNS OF FIERCE FORWARD will be giving you a small package of items to motivate and inspire you!

1. BODYBUILDING.COM is the World’s #1 Online Supplement and Bodybuilding Website. In my opinion, the most Motivational. has been with me since day 1 of my Journey. I have been so lucky to have met most of the crew and the Team behind the Motivation and Powerhouse, and they all are amazing people. Thank you for all of your support.

2. THE SWEATY BETTY’S are Danny J and Aubrie, two beautiful women who work to motivate and keep it fun and exciting in the Fitness World. They welcome anyone to take part in the laughs and enjoy each day of being healthy. They love Balance and work to guide people to avoid extremes and just be happy in their journey. These two girls are great role models and I thank them for their part in this Contest.

3. JENNY OF RECIPES FOR GALS IN FIGURE AND BODYBUILDING has been one of my mentors since beginning Fierce Forward. I admire how many she guides on her page. She is an inspiration and a smart businesswoman. She has made lemonade out of lemons and continues to grow her business whilst motivating and inspiring others. She is a true success.

4. KELLY RENNIE is a wonderful, genuine woman I am proud to call my friend. I reached out to her in the beginning of my journey for guidance. I looked up to her figure and what she had accomplished. I did not expect a reply but to my surprise, Kelly went above and beyond and offered me help where I needed it and to this day, we speak often. She is currently pregnant and taking an amazingly healthy approach to her pregnancy, sharing information with her supporters of how to be healthy and pregnant. She is amazing to me.

5. SOLOMON FALLS SEAFOOD is an Alaskan company that I found through Fierce Forward. I have always purchased farm raised tilapia. I’m not a huge Salmon fan but on one of my posts, Solomon Falls reached out to me by advising me to strongly consider wild caught fish for health purposes. I kept in touch with her, asking more questions, trying to educate myself on the matter, as I am always interested in being as healthy as possible. After developing a rapport, she offered to send me some samples. In the mail, I got an abundance of AMAZING Salmon. It was above and beyond (gotta love that!) and to this day, I am proud to say they are still working with me through this contest. Thank you Solomon Falls. Check them out, they deliver amazing salmon that is wild caught.

6. BUSY MOM GETS FIT is a woman who is a Busy, Fit Mom. Those are three jobs all on their own. I look up to women like this, as I have not had children yet. Without knowing how much you actually have to give of yourself to a child(ren), what I do know is that it’s hard enough keeping myself healthy, with just me to look after. I look up this woman as a mentor and will hope to follow her lead when I decide to have a child of my own. Thank you Val for being such an awesome Role Model!

7. FASHLETICS was created by Sarah. I asked Sarah if she’d like to Team on this project and be a Sponsor, to support the intention to Motivate, Inspire and give back to my Fierce Fighters! She kindly said yes. She is also offering Fierce Fighters 10% off discount code, which I will announce first week of February, so you can get 10% off of a pair of knee high socks or an awesome dumbbell necklace that I’ve been dying to get for over a year now!

8. FIERCE FORWARD is a company that started as a Mantra. It means to Move forward fiercely, with no hesitation. To face your fears, to work hard and never give up. Ashley Johns wanted to help others see what she found for herself. She knew anyone could have what she worked for if they CHOSE. They just needed the right mindset and attitude to start. Fierce Forward has blossomed and I’m proud to say I wake up every day feeling the love and support from the best supporters ever, our Fierce Fighters. These are true, genuine people who believe in what I’m doing. It’s a community of healthy people moving forward towards their goals, each and every day. I never thought it would reach the height it has, and now a logo has been created and shirts are in development. Who knows what’s next! All I know is my passion is waking up and sharing motivation with you, offering advice and support when needed. I am grateful every day for the community we have. Fierce Forward!
