Contest Poll: Primal Blueprint Fitness Videos

At the start of this 30-Day Challenge I put out a call for Primal Blueprint Fitness Videos. And you responded with nearly a dozen top-notch clips. Boiling the submissions down to the top three was no easy task. My crew and I discussed at length what made up a good fitness video. Was it fun and entertaining? Was the workout something we can see ourselves doing? Did it inspire and keep us watching? How well did it represent Primal Blueprint Fitness? On and on. In the end we held a blind vote and ended up with the following three picks. To everyone that didn’t make the cut, many, many thanks for taking the time to put together an amazing contribution to this year’s 30-Day Challenge.

Now, for a recap of what’s at stake:

The Prize:

A Spear – An Assegai Spear, courtesy of Cold Steel.

A Mace - A plate loadable mace, courtesy of Stronger Grip.

A Rope - Undulation ropes, courtesy of CalRopes.

A Sandbag - An ultimate sandbag, courtesy of Henkin Fitness.

That’s it. A spear, a mace, a sandbag, and undulation ropes. It’s an impressive package of Primal gear I’m sure any one of these contestants would love to win. Watch the videos below and then make your vote count.

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. All three are first-rate but I voted for Sand and Deliver because they included the whole family and even the dog! I am so curious about the age of the “elders”…they are in fantastic shape. A very entertaining video.

    • Hey, Patty. Thanks for the vote. To answer your question about our ages, Mark is 57 and I’m 56. We’re glad you enjoyed the video … it was a a lot of fun to put together!

      • Wow Cathy, you guys are a real inspiration, and are doing a great job, along with the Sissons, making fifty-something look good! Thanks for the reply!

  4. I liked “Playing in the forest” because it looks like a workout I’d have fun doing :)

  6. I liked Workout on Holidays because they seemed to be having the most fun. It seemed like the least amount of structured “working out.” Inspired me to want some kettleballs!

  7. Workout on Holiday! It’s the hardest thing to be motivated for. Also, everyone looks like they’re having a blast – which is the point of a workout, and the point of a holiday. Right on! The difficulty is way over the top for someone like me, but it’s so spirited and awesome. I appreciate the practicality and total family involvement of Sand and Deliver – it’s a great video, actually. And the Forest video is a great example of a short, intense WOD. But Holiday just looked like fitness, fun … and it’s holiday.

  8. Great body weight exercises. Some really good ideas. Just stop throwing the kid in the air sometime before he throws up! ;)
