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...Tell Me More
Do you get tired of seeing the same seven shots of me across the top of this blog? Want to see yourself up there instead? Now’s your chance. Take a fitness photo, and if it’s good enough, it will be added to the rotation of header images for the rest of the Primal Challenge.
Other than being able to gloat to your friends that your photo is plastered on top of my blog, I’m also sending everyone in the photo a free Grok shirt. And for all the female Groks out there who have been emailing me about the lack of lady-shirts, I’ll be coming out with a couple new designs in the next week or so, and the winners of this contest will have first dibs.
Take a fitness photo. What’s a fitness photo? It’s a picture that in some way represents an aspect of Primal Fitness. Whether moving frequently at a slow pace, lifting heavy things, or sprinting, the photo should give newcomers to the site an idea of what Primal fitness looks like. There are two requirements:
Finally, this contest isn’t about showing off who has the most muscles, or who can lift the most weight. It’s more about capturing the essence of Primal fitness, a photo that depicts an action. And you don’t have to be Annie Leibovitz to win this one, but if you pay a little attention to lighting, framing, and composition, you’ll definitely improve your odds.
Once you’ve cropped and re-sized your image, email it to me.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Be sure to include “Header Submission” in your subject line or I may miss your photo entirely.
September 13, midnight PST. That gives you the weekend and a day.
Who is Eligible:
Anyone on the planet. Do you live in Djibouti? You’re eligible. Antarctica? Eligible. Do you live in space? Not eligible. On second thought, scratch that, if you live in space you’re eligible as well. In fact, a picture from space is an automatic win.
How a Winner is Chosen:
I’ll be hand picking this one.
