We launched our first-ever Face of FITNESS cover contest last winter, and got a peek into your busy but active lives as well as a reminder of why we pour so much creativity into our pages each month. More than 3,500 women entered on our Facebook page; each week readers voted for their favorite. Five finalists were flown to New York City last June for a photo shoot. One lucky reader, Caroline Seymour, was chosen as our cover girl, plus she wins a five-night Hawaiian vacation at the Four Seasons Resort Lana'i at Manele Bay, courtesy of Apple Vacations. Here, get to know the vibrant, strong beauties who embody FITNESS in mind, body, and spirit -- and learn their best live-healthy secrets.
Our 2011 Cover Girl: Caroline Seymour
Caroline Seymour, 26, Raleigh, North Carolina
It's been a busy year for Caroline, who graduated from an MBA program, got engaged, and moved to a new city. Luckily her exercise habits keep her sane: "My favorite way to clear my head is to hit the golf course," she says.
Top tip: "Power up with an afternoon snack. I blend three-quarters of a cup of Trop50 orange juice, a half cup each of frozen fruit and V8 Splash Diet Berry Blend, a banana, and a handful of ice."
