Meet Mark

Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Sisson. I’m 63 years young. I live and work in Malibu, California. In a past life I was a professional marathoner and triathlete. Now my life goal is to help 100 million people get healthy. I started this blog in 2006 to empower people to take full responsibility for their own health and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing, and critically rethinking everything we’ve assumed to be true about health and wellness...

Contest Poll: Primal Blueprint Fitness Videos

At the beginning of the Primal Blueprint Health Challenge I put out a call for Primal Fitness videos. Over 20 videos were submitted. They were all fantastic so choosing the best of the best was no easy task. The Worker Bees and I each voted for our favorites. We tallied the results and came up with the short list below. Now it’s up to you to pick the winner.

One lucky contestant will get all of the prizes listed below:

Vote for your favorite Primal Blueprint Fitness Video, and do it quickly. This poll ends tomorrow morning, 9 am. Click here to view the videos.

Thanks again to everyone that has participated! (P.S. If you don’t win or you missed the deadline to send in your own Primal Blueprint Recipe Video don’t fret. You still have the opportunity to win Primal prizes. Go to the new contest page for all the details.)

This poll is now closed.

This is Just the Beginning

Special Offer

I’m convinced that supplementation with a daily multi-vitamin-antioxidant complex and (Omega 3) fish oil is a crucial part of living a healthy Primal life in our 21st century world. As I’ve explained in the past, Grok may not have taken supplements but I believe we should. Why? Because the world we’ve created conspires at every turn to make us look and feel old, ill, and weak. We all try to eat right, get regular exercise and control stress. But despite our best efforts we often don’t get enough sun, we stress about bills, traffic and the economy, we don’t always get enough sleep or the right exercise, we breathe polluted air, we don’t always eat as we should, and when we do, even the best natural foods are not as abundant in important micronutrients as they once were. Some of the most critical nutrients are missing entirely – and it’s only getting worse as the commercialization of food continues to spiral out of control. That’s why I created Primal Nutrition over 12 years ago; to fill the gap between what was largely unavailable in my diet and what I knew my family and I needed to maximize health.

So to mark the end of the Primal Blueprint Health Challenge and to thank you for all of your support and participation I’ve put together a special package for you. If you call to receive Damage Control Master Formula (my best-selling vitamin-antioxidant system for over ten years) on a monthly basis you’ll receive a free bottle of Vital Omegas (high-potency omega-3 fish oil capsules) every month in addition to a single free canister of Responsibly Slim (a sensible high-protein meal replacement for those times when eating perfectly Primal isn’t easy) in either Dutch Chocolate or Vanilla Creme and a free Grok On! T-shirt.

I rarely hold specials like this and this particular offer only lasts 72 hours. It isn’t available online, so call the Worker Bees at 888-774-6259, mention this offer, and place your order today.

P.S. If you are looking for a more entry-level or beginners formula I also have the Advanced Health Formula and Basic Assurance. Call 888-774-6259 and one of the Worker Bees will set you up with a formula that works best for you.

Future Contests

As I mentioned in the video, those contests were so darn fun we’re going to continue doing them. For the foreseeable future I’m going to be holding contests for Primal Blueprint Fitness Videos, Primal Blueprint Recipe Videos and Primal Blueprint Real Life Stories. Click here for all the details.

Check back later today to vote for the winner of the Primal Blueprint Fitness Video contest. Grok on!

Final Contest: Raising the Bar

The Prize:

Would you rather have a pull up bar or a dip bar? No need to pick, if you win you get both! Get excited, because Ultimate Body Press is donating their full package as the final prize of the the 30 day challenge. No need to drill pilot holes into your doorway, the pull up bar pops right onto the door frame. And no need to clear out your garage, because the dip bar easily stores in a closet. Push up rings are also included in the package, which can be used with either bar. You can also follow the Ultimate Body Press blog for tips on healthy living and workout gear.

The Contest:

You’ve made videos; you’ve told stories. You’ve taken pictures of your meals, your groceries, and your refrigerators. You’ve quipped, joked, and Grokku’d. You’ve tweeted, facebooked, and newslettered. And most importantly, you challenged yourself and grunted, sweated, and cooked your way through 30 days of that challenge. All in all, you’ve done plenty of work. So today’s contest is simple. Leave a comment on the video post above and you’re entered to win.

To reiterate, comment on today’s VIDEO post (This is Just the Beginning) for a chance to win. Commenting on this post will get you nothing.

It’s the last picture-fest of the Primal Blueprint Health Challenge. You’ve shown us your breakfast photos, your lunch photos, you’re groceries and you even sent in pics of your Primal fridges. But wait! There’s something missing here. Ah, yes. Primal dinner!

Warning: If you’re stuck in a cubical and your next meal is nowhere in sight do not view the photos below. Unless, of course, you’re a masochist and self torture is your thing.

Thanks to everyone for your Primal dinner submissions. And now for the official business. A reader’s photo was selected at random to win a $50 Gift Certificate from Gaucho Ranch.
