Contest: What Do You Want from Upcoming Book, Primal Woman?

The Prize:

The ULTIMATE posture correction package courtesy of Esther Gokhale, owner and founder of the Gokhale Method Institute!

Do you suffer from mild to chronic back pain, inhibiting your sleep and daily life? Have you succumbed to the fact that this is “just how it is?” Not so fast… The Gokhale Method is a systematic, non-surgical process of restoring pain-free posture and movement based on the way our bodies were naturally designed. Learn how to sit, sleep, stand, walk and bend in ways that actually protect and strengthen your bones and muscles.

The lucky recipient of today’s challenge will receive:

Stretchsit® Cushion: Unlike a lumbar support cushion, Stretchsit elongates rather than compresses your low back, giving you the natural, healthy spinal shape shared by children, athletes and people in traditional societies the world over. This mobile, adjustable cushion can be easily moved from the car to the office, so you can enjoy the benefits throughout the day.

8 Steps to a Pain-Free Back: A step-by-step guide designed to help those suffering from back pain re-educate their bodies and regain the posture for which our bodies evolved.

DVD – Back Pain: The Primal Posture Solution: Follow along with Esther for 60 minutes of guided posture corrections and techniques as she addresses the root cause of most muscle and joint pain with healthy posture and movement techniques.

Contest: What Does It Mean to Be a Primal Family?

The Prize:

Something for the whole family…

A Kangaroo – Not a living, jumping, boxing, marsupial. This kangaroo is the solution for people who want to stand at work. Made by Ergo Desktop, the Kangaroo is an adjustable height desk unit that sits atop your boring sit-down desk. There’s really nothing else on the market like it. These are handmade in Ohio and shipped entirely assembled. Ergo Desktop has various models and finishes to match your office and the size of your computer. Winner will receive a choice of the Kangaroo Pro, the Kangaroo, or the Wallaby. Perfect for folks who work eight hours a day and don’t want to sit themselves into back problems later in life. These are also a good option if your workplace is permanently affixed with desks of the sitting variety. You know I’m a big proponent of standing at work. This is your chance to win a standing workstation. Retail value: Up to $499.

Contest: Design the Next Primal Blueprint Poster for Cash Prize

The Prize:

Benjamins. Moolah. Dough. Bread. (No, not that kind of dough and bread.) I’m talking cash. Cold hard cash you can use to buy whatever you want. (May I suggest some Primal fare from a local farmer or dining establishment?)

The winner of this design contest will receive $500. If I actually print the design and distribute the poster the designer will receive an extra $1500, for a total prize value of $2000.

The Contest:

The Primal Blueprint Poster (click the image to the right to zoom in) was designed a few years back. While it’s holding up OK, I think it’s time for an update – a makeover, as it were. And that’s where you, or at least all the graphic designers amongst you, come in. Design the next Primal Blueprint Poster for a chance to win the prize above and have your design end up on garage, bedroom, classroom and gym walls around the world.
