Diets in Review - Find the Right Diet for You

Two Ways to Win a Ticket to Fitbloggin’ 2012!

There aren’t usually a lot of reasons to look forward to the end of summer, but this year there is one big reason to do so… Fitbloggin’! In September the third annual fitness blogging conference takes place in Baltimore. Once again hundreds of veteran and new fitness and health bloggers will join to learn, play, and work out from September 20-23.

We’re going – of course! And we want you to go with us. Roni at Fitbloggin‘ has given us two tickets to giveaway. And we’ve got two ways you could be one of the winners!

1. Comment on this blog post. That’s pretty simple. Leave a comment below telling us why you HAVE to go to Fitbloggin’, and why it just won’t be the same without you there. We’ll do a drawing on Friday, June 29th to announce the drawing winner for one ticket.

2. Join the #Fitbloggin Twitter party on Tuesday, June 12. We’ll be hosting a live Twitter party @DietsInReview on #Fitbloggin to talk about summer recipes, fitness, travel plans, and of course what we love about Fitbloggin’. That night we’ll draw one winner for a Fitbloggin’ ticket and give away some other cool DIR goodies. Party starts at 8:00pm CST; so put the kids to bed and charge your laptop!

We’ve loved being a part of each Fitbloggin’ (see our picture from lastyear!) and each year it gets a little better. Sponsors like McCormick, Ignite Fitness, and Reebok are helping to make this year’s event the best yet.

The 5K and one-mile fun run will take place again this year and will be lead by the team at Reebok. Plus, they’ll be leading us through a Crossfit workout. One of the cool things about Fitbloggin’ is it’s like a tasting buffet for exercise – you get to try a lot of different stuff and then go home and introduce something new to your regimen!

Another sponsor this year is McCormick who is offering Fitbloggin’ attendees an opportunity to tour their headquarters to learn about all of the health-benefits of spices and sample some of their house recipes. You can trust we’re all signed up for that!

Finally, the keynote everyone is looking forward to is YOURS! Ignite Fitness is hosting the coolest keynote we’ve seen. Fourteen speakers (who have been chosen by the Fitbloggin’ community based on applications) will each get five minutes to present. It’s a blast of interesting and inspiring stories and information that everyone will get something out of!

We hope to see you at Fitbloggin’ September 20-23 for all of this and so much more!

Don’t miss either chance to win a ticket! Comment below or join our Twitter party June 12.

I would absolutely LOVE to go! I just started blogging fairly recently and would love to connect with the blogging community and hear from more seasoned bloggers. And it just seems like it'd be a blast!

I went two years ago and loved every second. I'm in an even better place with my health and fitness goals this year and I would cherish the chance to get back to the conference and get the extra boost I need to keep me going! I already follow so many FitBloggin peeps on FB and Twitter, and the chance to meet them in person would be so inspiring!

I would love to attend FitBloggin. I am new to the blogging world and know that I could benefit from attending this conference. I want to take what I learn and pay it forward. I have struggled from an eating disorder for 30 years and in the past 6 months joined the fight to save my life. I use my blog to share my journey (good and bad) and would like to teach others to get healthy without falling into the struggle of an eating disorder.

Well, I didn't win the ticket during the chat, but I'm really hoping to win the drawing. I would apply for an assistantship, but I don't type quickly enough and my laptop only holds a charge for about 30 minutes at this point. I can take pretty decent photos, but don't have a super awesome camera just a point N shoot. If there's any word about scholarships going around, I'd appreciate any info.
Reading all of the chatter about the FHBC12 conference last weekend made me sad beyond belief that I didn't get to meet any of the wonderful people I have spoken to over the last year and looked up to. I'm to the point of trying to learn to be a contortionist to fit in someone's suit case to go, as long as I get to go to Fitbloggin!

I want to attend so badly! It's been years since I went to a conference and they were related to graduate school activities. I find when I do go to these events it challenges me to view things from a perspective outside of my own world and encourage others to do the same. I'm a huge fan of trying new things so the various fitness classes are right up my alley. I've been using my blog ROJ Running to enhance and set up my future career and as my routine is to post recipes every Friday a tour of McCormick would be ideal. Thanks for the opportunity to win

I. Must. Go! Hubbs promised that I could go if I won a ticket since I had to relinquish my scholarship to FHBC due to my first ever broken bone. I have a spiral fracture in my right fibula that I received while playing roller derby dodge ball. Yes, school yard dodgeball on roller skates. Quads, no inlines.
I've busted my butt to lose 100 lbs over the last year and the night I broke my leg I found out I reached my goal weight. Now I've been on bed rest for 3 weeks and finally got my post-op hard cast today. I have 4 weeks, then a walking boot, then rehab. I can't wait to be back on 8 wheels and blocking for my skate sisters.
I want to go to fitbloggin so bad. I cried for 3 days when I had to let go of my other opportunity. I've worked so hard and encountered so many wonderful people online on my journey, I would give a kidney up to meet them in person.

A friend of mine showed me Roni's website and said that I should try to learn from her and that is what I have been doing ever since :) I am always trying to make my website better and would love to learn from the best of the best. I hope that maybe someday I could be lucky enough to be a speaker and help motivate other to reach their greatest potential... no matter what their goal. Always remember to INVEST IN YOURSELF!!

I would absolutely love to attend this conference. I started my own weight loss journey 6 months ago and have lost 65 pounds. Fitness and eating healthfully has become the most important thing to me and I've truly embraced this lifestyle and would love to meet others dedicated to health!!

Would love to attend this year. I went last year and had a blast. I think I'd enjoy it even more this year as I'm more familiar with more of the bloggers that attend.

I would very much like to attend this conference because I have just recently emerged onto the health/wellness/fitness blogging scene and would love to use this as a learning/inspiration gathering event. I would also love to tell people about my FitDesk that I'm in love with!

Wow, I would LOVE to spread my story (weight loss through healthy food and physical activity) to those just starting out and meet others who have also changed their lives in a similar way! What a perfect place to do just that!

I would LOVE to win a ticket! I have not yet made it to a health/fitness blogging conference, and I've heard only good things about this one. I know there's a lot to learn, plus I want to meet some of my blogworld friends!

posted Jun 5th, 2012 7:11 pm


I want to go - I need to go! So much support, so much knowledge all in one place. I would love to share my experiences as well as learn from others all working toward the same goal!

posted Jun 5th, 2012 6:11 pm


I would LOVE to go to this conference! I have just launched my fitness, nutrition, and mental health blog and as a counselor-in-training I hope to implement a wellness approach in my practice.

I can't think of a better way to jump start this career path than by attending the conference. Unfortunately, as a graduate student I can't afford it this year (as I didn't find out about it until after early bird discounts). Winning tickets would be perfect!

I wanna go!! It would be my heaven, basically, and I need to soak up as much as I can like a sponge. It would be honor to learn from the best is business and fitness. See you at the Twitter party!
