SSU 2013 Giveaway: Stitch Fix- ENDED

Thank you so much for the amazing response to the first workout! I’m so happy you’re enjoying it πŸ™‚ I did workout 1 for the first time a few weeks ago and it killed me in the best way possible. Hope you feel the same way. If you’re just finding out about Summer Shape Up, no worries, it is never too late to sign up! Check out the intro post here, and then leave a comment in any post being sure to click the box to sign up for my newsletter. The password for the first week’s workout and meal ideas will be emailed to you automatically after you sign up. πŸ™‚


When I first started my weight loss journey, I quickly realized that it was not worth it to spend money on clothes during that time. I’d go buy an outfit for work, and it would be too big before I could wear it. It may seem like a “problem that’s not really a problem,” but clothes can be costly, and it’s a waste if you don’t get to wear them. I halted the clothing purchases since I knew my size would be temporary until I reached a healthier weight. Since then, I’ve always told my training clients to minimize clothing expenses while we’re working together, and instead to use a clothes shopping spree as an awesome reward when they hit their goal.

Many of you will hit new fitness goals with the Summer Shape Up. Even if the scale doesn’t budge -muscle is more dense than fat, so you could technically weigh the same and have a lower body fat percentage- your clothes could fit you differently. Maybe you just hit a fitness goal and want to celebrate, or could use a bit of a closet overhaul.

I’d like to share my Stitch Fix credit with a few lucky winners as the first Shape Up giveaway.


I have a credit with Stitch Fix from referring people to the brand over the past 6 months or so. At first, I thought it would be cool to get a discount on what I purchase from them since I love my monthly Stitch Fix box, and the credit continued to grow. I was trying to think of a good way to use it and quickly thought of the perfect solution: give back to YOU, since you’re the reason why I have a credit with them in the first place.

I emailed Stitch Fix to see if it would be possible to do a giveaway and they more than happy to help me set it up.

Today’s giveaway is $3500 of Stitch Fix credit: $500 each to seven lucky winners. That’s a lot of new clothes!

    I’d love to win to update my closet I’ve got stuff from so many years ago, I think it’s coming back in style!!

  2. Katie on June 6, 2013 at 9:30 pm

    I am training for my first marathon. While ive always worked out I feel so much better and more body confident. I would love to shop for clothes to fit my new confidence!

  3. Heather on June 6, 2013 at 9:32 pm

    Okay, here’s my video! Can’t believe I’m putting this out there for everyone to see πŸ˜‰

    • Heather on June 6, 2013 at 11:54 pm

      Aaah, I watched it again and so embarrassing. I totally had a brain fart and said mariachi instead of flamenco…and then there’s the bouncing boobs and mommy talk. All so awkward. Lol.

  4. Beth on June 6, 2013 at 9:33 pm

    Soooo I am so not used to recording myself!! Then my camera would only let me take a 15 second video!! But here it goes:

    The Stitch Fix giveaway is such an awesome opportunity its worth trying!!!

  5. Jaime on June 6, 2013 at 9:34 pm

    I would love to receive the Stitch Fix credit because I’ve worked my butt off the past 2 years–wedding, master’s & teaching full time. The stress, unfortunately, caused me to gain more than a few pounds, but I’ve been working hard at bootcamp and now your summer shapeup program to get back in shape and marathon/triathlon ready! πŸ™‚ Thanks for the inspiration, as well as the awesome workouts!

  6. Kate on June 6, 2013 at 9:34 pm

    Why do I need a closet makeover? I have an addiction. To stripes. Blue and white ones, specifically.

    Here’s a link to the evidence:

  11. Faith on June 6, 2013 at 10:36 pm

    Hi Gina!

    What an awesome giveaway – here’s my video!

  12. Kari on June 6, 2013 at 11:00 pm

    Love the Stitch Fix idea, thanks for sharing!

  13. Megan C on June 6, 2013 at 11:01 pm

    I’d love to win a Stitch Fix credit because being a mom of four kids under the age of 7 leaves me no time to both work out and keep myself healthy and shop for clothes that flatter me. So I choose to work out and am stuck wearing the same stuff I’ve worn for the last seven years. I’d love to look like something other than a stressed out mom wearing the same old boring stuff.

  14. Alyssa on June 6, 2013 at 11:18 pm
  15. Leea on June 6, 2013 at 11:21 pm


    Here’s my video for the giveaway. I’m really not used to the camera so please excuse my awkwardness.
    Hope you enjoy my video!

  16. Shelly on June 6, 2013 at 11:26 pm

    Gina! I hope you’re still viewing these videos and the contest is still going!

    A. SSU is Tough (in an awesome, terrifying, amazing sweat-inducing wonderful kind of way)
    B. I despise myself on camera. I cringe just thinking about the awkwardness that was me this afternoon.
    C. My dogs were hot messes in my video. not that it’s abnormal for them..

    (Please don’t make fun of me! πŸ™‚ )

    • Fitnessista on June 6, 2013 at 11:35 pm

  18. ashley on June 6, 2013 at 11:53 pm

    I’ve been working really hard to lose weight and eat healthier! I would love to have some new clothes because right now it feels like nothing fits. I just don’t have the money to build a new wardrobe right now, This would be a dream come true! Thank you for the chance Gina!

  24. Michelle on June 7, 2013 at 2:32 am

    I originally made about 7 really awkward videos of me talking to my computer for my video entry. After asking my boyfriend for his input at (the worst time ever) the basketball game, he came into the office an hour later with the camera and started recording our conversation (unbeknownst to me at first!), but it was way better than my other boring videos. πŸ™‚

  25. Allie on June 7, 2013 at 3:14 am

    I want to win the SF giveaway because I’m a poor college student and can’t afford it on my own!

  26. Elise on June 7, 2013 at 3:30 am
  27. Jacqueline on June 7, 2013 at 6:01 am

    Here’s my entry…forgive the scary 5am face!!!! πŸ™‚ thanks for having this contest!!!

  28. Phoebe on June 7, 2013 at 6:26 am

    I’d love to win because I’m in desperate need of new clothes and have no time to shop as a working mom of a one year old. It would mean the world to me!

  29. Mia on June 7, 2013 at 7:54 am

    Loving the shape up so far! Off to the gym to complete my steady state for the day. πŸ™‚

  30. Cassie on June 7, 2013 at 8:37 am

    Loved the first workout! Have being doing it as outlined in the calendar, and I’ve been feeling it! Can’t wait for what’s to come!

  31. Holly on June 7, 2013 at 9:16 am

    My wardrobe needs HELP! I want to look pulled together, not pulled apart by my baby girl!

  32. Courtney Tucker on June 7, 2013 at 10:26 am

    My video is uploading now. Hope it’s not too late!

  33. Meagan on June 7, 2013 at 10:30 am

    What an amazing giveaway!! My wardrobe is not really professional enough for the vibe I want to give off at work…want to do better!

  34. Meagan on June 7, 2013 at 10:35 am

    also subscribed on youtube!!

  35. Stephanie on June 7, 2013 at 10:50 am

    I love the idea of getting new pieces for my wardrobe that I might not have picked out on my own. A fun way to create a new style!! πŸ™‚

  36. Raychel on June 7, 2013 at 10:59 am

    OOh I hope this is still open! I’d love to win because I haven’t spent money on clothes for me in a good 6 months! I’m in serious need of some cute summer outfits

  37. Courtney Tucker on June 7, 2013 at 11:03 am

    For some reason You Tube is having trouble uploading. I’m going to try again, but here is the Google+ link:

  38. Britney on June 7, 2013 at 11:11 am

    I want to win because I am a mom of an 8 month old! Although I’m one pound away from pre-baby weight, all of my clothes fit differently now! I just ran my first half-marathon post baby, the Rock N Roll San Diego. Even though it was my first race after having my precious baby girl, I was able to set my PR! πŸ™‚ I gave myself a few recovery days, then did the first Workout 1 + HIIT (20 min) yesterday, and I was literally dripping as much as during my 13.1 mile run. Thanks to the SSU I hope to get all these stretchy areas back in place!!!

  39. Courtney Tucker on June 7, 2013 at 11:13 am

    Finally! Sorry for bombarding you with comments!

  40. Sarah on June 7, 2013 at 1:00 pm

    I’d love to win because I’ve been putting so much effort into my workouts recently and amping up the strength training for my September wedding. Most of the pay checks have been going towards the wedding, not shopping, and a stitch fix certificate would buy some fun clothes for the festivities and the honeymoon!

  41. Jennifer Cochran on June 7, 2013 at 1:02 pm

    I love stitch fix!! I need to weed out some oldies!!

  42. Monica Davis on June 7, 2013 at 2:22 pm

    I would LOVE a wardrobe makeover! I think Stitchfix is an awesome company- I love that they try to personalize to your style! Pick me Pick me!! πŸ™‚

  43. Monica Davis on June 7, 2013 at 2:27 pm

    I am a youtube subscriber too!

  44. Monica Davis on June 7, 2013 at 2:30 pm

    I pinned your post πŸ™‚
    NEED IT!
    awesome giveaway!!!!!

  45. Megan on June 7, 2013 at 2:41 pm

    I’m a mom to 2.5 year old twin boys and a 9 month girl… I’m still working on getting back to my pre-pregnancy weight but would love some new clothes that look good on me now!

  46. Danielle B on June 7, 2013 at 3:34 pm

    I have held off on buying any clothes for myself since the moment I became pregnant last year (except for a few maternity items!). Now that I have my beautiful girl, I am so excited to be part of the SSU series! I know it will get me back to my pre-pregnancy weight and I would LOVE to be able to have Stitch Fix as my reward! πŸ˜‰

  47. Abby on June 7, 2013 at 5:18 pm

    I made a video but Youtube isn’t accepting it for some reason! Dang it!

    The video is supposed to be here:

    I’ll walk you through it instead:
    Sweaty Abby stands in closet, post run for Summer Shape Up. She LOVES Summer Shape Up (Three times strong!) Shows you her clothes. Needs help dressing herself for summertime. End scene.


  48. Courtney on June 13, 2013 at 2:51 pm

    I love Stitch Fix.
