Hi everyone!<br><br>
Listen..the BIGGEST thing to hit the online fitness industry is soming this Tuesday, Jan 23!<br><br>
Fortunately, I am one of the very few trainers in the world who have the priviledge of knowing about this.<br><br>
Check out the info below. It is the copy of an email I sent to my list.<br><br>
This thing is simply speking - AWESOME!<br><br>
--------------------------------------------------------------------------<br><br>
January 23, 2007 is the BIG DAY!<br><br><br><br>
The countdown begins to what some are calling the BIGGEST thing to hit the online fitness industry - EVER!<br><br><br><br>
AND.....<br><br>
I am very fortunate to be a part of it!<br><br><br><br>
My good friend Ryan Lee (<a href="http://www.ryanlee.com" target="_blank">www.ryanlee.com</a>) has partnered with some of the biggest names in the Health & Fitness industry to bring you Workoutpass!<br><br><br><br>
Workoutpass is a site that offers workouts to moms, pregnant women, people over 50, men with bad backs, basketball players, 10-minute workouts - and MUCH, MUCH more.<br><br><br><br>

You are on this page because you know me personally or are on my list.Therefore, you are well aware that I would NOT send you something that is just a gimmick. You know that I am true to health & fitness and am ALWAYS looking out for your overall health and not the mighty pocket book.If the pocket book was the case I would be sending you so much junk and trying to sell you things I do not believe in just to make a penny. Obviously...that is NOT me.<br><br><br><br>
Sneak Preview!<br><br><br><br>
Yes..YOU are one of the very few in the world to see a sneak preview of what Workoutpass is all about. There are only a few trainers throughout the world who have this link. Fortunately, I am one of them and you and your familiy and friends can benefit from it.<br><br><br><br>

One day your going to say, 'Yeah, I remember when Barry sent me to this site. I was one o the first in the world to be allowed to check it out.<br><br><br><br>
Please pass along to your friends and relatives who may be into fitness or are debating. This will help them tremendously and YOU can be their hero!<br><br><br><br>
Thanks again everyone and have a great weekend!<br><br><br><br>
In Good Health,<br><br><br><br>

First..you are funny <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
Ya know it took me a few days to decide to send this 'thinking' it may be spam. The only reason I THUNK it wasn't was because it is nothing I am selling.<br><br><br><br>
I just thought it was a great thing...yes, they do give away my ebook as one of the many giveaways when you sign up, but that's it.<br><br><br><br>
Seriously...I apologize 1000 times if this truly is considered spam.<br><br><br><br>
Mods - please feel free to take away if you believe it is.

Whether you are actually selling it for money is irrelevent. You are using the board to sell your friends web-site and the workout pass and telling people that they can win prizes. You're also indirectly promoting yourself which is also a business. That is spamming.

The moderators have discussed this.<br><br><br><br>
VB is very anti-spam. You may have noticed that the moderators are extremely vigilant in combatting UNWANTED commercial ventures from people who join solely for the purpose of soliciting their product.<br><br><br><br>
That is not the case here.<br><br><br><br>
Barrylove has been a member here for over a year. he has contributed to our community in many ways. We have no problem with members promoting their commercial ventures here WITHIN REASON. We have Arbonne reps, cottage industries, veg*n suppliers, etc, who take advantage of the marketing opportunities inherent in our social construct. No problem, so long as that's not their sole purpose for being here, and so long as they are established members who have something to offer our community beyond their commercial venture.<br><br><br><br>
Barrylove fits that criteria. He is welcome to leave his post where it is. Thank you for your concern. In the future, if you are concerned about the appropriateness of a particular post, feel free to discuss it with the Moderators directly (report post).<br><br><br><br>

From what i can tell, it's just a multi-pass, where you get membership into several workout sites for one price. *shrug* yeah, doesn't look like something I'm terribly interested in myself... I really don't like paying for site memberships, no matter what the content is...

Fine. I guess I have a totally different idea of what "within reason" means but hey, it's not my board so carry on <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Body for life has animated exercises, as do a lot of other websites. Maybe I don't get what the big "new" thing is.</div>
</div>
<br>
Obviously, I am aware of the many websites out there. There are OTNS of great ones,that is for sure.<br><br>
This one in particular is a combination of thousands of different workouts by lots of different fitness guru's (who already have their own websites) that specialize in many different forms of exercise. The list of choices will grow as Workoutpass grows.<br><br><br><br>
Personally, I think it is a fabulous thing for say a family of fitness enthusiasts. THe father can get his workout, the mother hers, the daughter who plays soccer gets hers and the son who does not play sports but just wants to workout can get his own also.<br><br><br><br>
Exercise may not be for everyone, but knowing how many of my fellow VBers like to exercise I figured I would let you all know about this.<br><br><br><br>
In Good Health,<br><br><br><br>

I understnad your concern and I would not 'intentionally' spam the board. I was taking it from a 'helping others' side knowing that som many people here have tons of questions. I get PM'd with lots ot different question, so I thought it would be a good idea to give evertone an answer.<br><br><br><br>
Sorry for any negative feelings.<br><br><br><br>

If/when the report post function doesn't work, you can PM a moderator. It's a good idea to PM at least two mods about an issue because sometimes a mod takes a day or two off because of offline life events, and we like to deal with spammers and trollers quickly.

My favorite part is all the words that are capitalized for emphasis. It's such a delight to read. I mean, words like special and free take on a whole new meaning when they are written in all caps. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
Can you break it down in, like, two sentences what this is about for people like me with short attention spans and who don't want to leave the safety of VB to learn stuff. Also make it less sales pitchy. That'd be awesome. Thanks Barry. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

You can pay a membership fee and access a database with a whole bunch of exercise websites on it. Then you can click on said websites and see animated exercises for that part of the body.

Hmm. Still a <i>little</i> salespitchy I'm afraid. Please try again.

Sure, it's "salespitchy"...that tends to happen when someone is trying to sell something. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>

Um...<a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/newvb/attachment.php?s=7b0b1476e1502d8ca2a71e81ea9e0600&attachmentid=8227" title="">Attachment 8227</a><br><br><br><br>
I have no problem with Barry posting that. I think he's a great guy and I think promoting physical fitness is laudable (plus he's huge and could totally kick my ass). But that doesn't make the language and writing style used beyond reproach now does it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
