Celebrating 5 Years of Blogging With A $1200 Fitness Faves Giveaway!

If you caught Part 1 of my #GracieFaves giveaway posts (aka the Fashion Faves giveaway that you can view HERE), you’ll already know that I’m rolling out 5 exciting giveaways this month to celebrate 5 years of GracieCarroll.com, and holiday giving.

In each giveaway, I’m featuring 5 of my favourite things that relate to one of the 5 main categories on my site (Fashion, Fitness, Beauty, Food and Lifestyle), and one lucky person will get to WIN all 5 items to enjoy.

Fitness has always been a big part of my life, and it’s made me so happy to get to incorporate my love for healthy and active living into the content that I share online with all of you. I think this is the first time I’ve ever put together a big fitness-focused giveaway for GracieCarroll.com and I’m SO thrilled to include so many of my absolute favourite brands in an incredible package that totals nearly $1200!

See below for what’s up for grabs and how to enter to WIN my Fitness Faves:


1. Samsung Gear S2, $549.99

To be honest, I never thought I would be an Android user until I converted to Samsung nearly 2 years ago and never looked back. I joke now that I live in a “Samsung House” because everything from my phone and watch to TV and stove are all made by Samsung! I guess it’s not really a joke if it’s true, right?  Getting to wear the Gear S2 (I have it in rose gold) has taken my Samsung experience to the next level, and I LOVE using this beautiful and sophisticated Smart Watch to free up my hands while still staying on top of everything that’s going on. I’ve found it to be particularly helpful at the gym so I can leave my phone in a locker and focus on my workout while keeping tabs on incoming emails and notifications. My friends at Samsung have generously provided a Gear S2 for the Fitness Faves giveaway that retails for $549.99!


2. Adidas Gift Card, $150


Getting to work with Adidas Canada this year as one of their Canadian Ambassadors for their #HereToCreate program was a dream come true. I’ve been a huge fan of the brand for as long as I can remember, and even helped open their Originals store on Queen West back when I was still in university and worked there part-time. Since you’ll rarely find me without a pair of Adidas kicks on, or in their gear to workout, I’m so excited to give you the chance to win a $150 gift card to buy anything of your choosing from the Adidas online shop or retail shops!


3. Studio KO 5 Class Pack, $125

Gracie Carroll - Studio KO - Giveaway

One thing to know about me and fitness is that I’m a fanatic for the craziest, sweatiest and hardest workouts I can find. I like to do anything that’s EXTREME and hate leaving a class feeling like I could go for a run after, do another workout, or that I didn’t even break a sweat. No, I want to feel like I’m ready to pass out and got my butt kicked! This is exactly how I feel every time I box my heart out at Studio KO on King West in Downtown Toronto. I’m totally obsessed with taking Master Trainer DJ Laperle‘s classes, and love that they are an intense combination of boxing class and bootcamp. Studio KO has generously provided 5 class pack worth $125!


4. Genuine Health Products, $250


All the props go to my personal trainer, Jessica Morris Health, for finally convincing me to get down with Protein Powder, and realise that it’s not a bad thing. She introduced me to using high quality and vitamin rich vegan protein powders, which have been a regular addition to my green smoothies, especially before or after a workout. I’m a big fan of the new fermented vegan proteins+ by Genuine Health, and even like their fermented Greek yogurt proteins+ even though I (personally) tend to shy away from dairy. With this pack of Genuine Health Products (worth $250!) you’ll be able to try both types of fermented proteins along with their fermented whole body NUTRITION with greens+, and an assortment of their bars. YUM!


4. Michi NY Gift Card, $100


Michi NY was one of the first local, Toronto-based brands I started working with when I launched my blog and I’ve been a huge fan ever since. Everything by Michi blew my mind (and still does to this day!) and I love that the designer, Michelle, uses her expertise as an ex pro skier to create high quality, super stylish and super functional workout gear for women. It’s been amazing to watch her brand explode over the past 5 years that I’ve known her, and I have so much respect for her dedication to having everything made in Toronto, despite how expensive that can be. If the Michi brand is new to you, here’s your chance to try something out with a $100 gift card to shop their site!
