hercampus New Balance campus fitness challenge

In Fall 2010, I was chosen to be one of 6 New Balance Campus Fitness Bloggers [check this link to see all 6 of us!] for HerCampus.com, a website for college girls. It was a 3-week blogging period, in which we all received fitness tips from New Balance fitness expert Holly Perkins, and then used those tips to make a workout program for college girls. We then blogged and vlogged (and, of course, I tweeted!) about our fitness plan.

At the end of the 3 weeks, Holly Perkins chose a winner, who “had the most balanced, inspiring, and easy-to-follow fitness plan.” And, guess what, she chose me!

Here’s what Holly said about why she chose me:

“…I wanted to go over every entry and video and really give these ladies my full attention.  While it was very hard for me to pick one- there were 3 that I REALLY liked- I have painfully made a decision on my first choice.

I choose CASSIDY QUINN!!!!!  Cassidy was absolutely engaging, fun, insightful, and offered so much content.  She created the most content by far of all the gals and used a great deal of video to make it extra interesting.  She was gracious and gave many “shout outs” to New Balance and really appreciated her swag.  She was very clear that her goal was to apply the suggestions I gave her, and also offer some other insights of her own.  She obviously put a ton of time into the creation of her videos, which were fun, funny, creative and crafty.  She really addressed the challenge at hand and offered some additional content.  She also incorporated Twitter a great deal- I had been following her all along. Love her.”

With my win, I won a year’s worth of New Balance gear (valued up to $1200) – woo!
