When it comes to staying in shape, one great way to keep your eye on the prize is through visual reminders. That’s why we’re obsessed with Pinterest, the free social-networking site that lets you create your own virtual inspiration boards, instantly.

But it’s also fun to share what works for you! So in the spirit of good health, we’re inviting you to pin the stuff that keeps you strong and healthy: The exercise moves, recipes, motivating quotes, fitness gear, and more. A panel of FITNESS judges will check out the submitted boards and five winners will score a $100 American Express gift card.

Here’s How to Enter:

  1. Follow FitnessMagazine on Pinterest.
  2. Create a new Pinterest board entitled “The Skinny Pins Contest – Fitness Mag.”
  3. Fill that board with at least 10 pins. Of those 10 pins, at least 5 of them must be items (recipes, exercises, etc.) pinned from FitnessMagazine.com.
  4. Each pin’s description must explain why or how the pinned content keeps you in shape. Are tricep kickbacks your never-miss move at the gym? Do you keep the weight off with Greek yogurt? Tell us! This step is very important with the judging.
  5. Once your pinboard is complete, enter the contest by submitting the board’s exact url here.

Pinboards will be judged on effectiveness and believability of the pinned content, originality, adherence to the contest rules, and understanding of the FITNESS lifestyle and voice. The contest is open from May 1 through May 31.

Disclaimer: You must be a member of Pinterest.com to enter and you must follow Fitness Magazine on Pinterest. If you do not have a Pinterest account, you can sign up here.

    I am a mother of 4, my oldest is 14 my youngest is 2. I also work as a part-time school media specialist. However, although my life is crazy I always find time for me. I work out just about every day eat healthy and try to instill these beliefs to my children. With the help of Fitness magazine, the moves for my arms are killer. The breakfast bars are a great pre-workout meal. LOVE them…I gained 70 pounds with all 4 babies…in order to keep it off, I like to not look at the scale, but how I feel. I like to look strong and feel young. If I have those two I am a happy mom…..
