4 Critical Fitness Updates from ‘AtlasVille’ and…

As mentioned in the email. This is a super tight week as the kids are on Spring Break - and I'm in high demand here, which I LOVE... So, here are the latest items I need to share with you: 1: Critical FDA Recalls 2: Big… BIG…. BBBIIIGGG... Thank you 3: Sweet Request 4: Preview of What’s Coming

1: Critical FDA Recalls

laced and tainted supplements
A - Weight loss/fat-burners being spiked with prescription drugs: V6 coffee contains sibutramine Bethel/Slim-k recall (tainted with sibutramine/Meridia) Again - for anyone wanting a ‘helper’, while avoiding the dangerously laced rip-offs - then my #1 vote goes to Metabo-379 which is from our pals at BioTrust B - This one is for men (or the man in your life). It is specifically focused on the widespread scam of spiking weak “Male Enhancement” supplements with unregulated pharmaceuticals to give men the desired effect. Not only is this extremely devious, but it is incredibly dangerous. From the FDA site: “...Consumers may unknowingly take products laced with varying quantities of approved prescription drug ingredients, controlled substances…” List of Tainted/Laced "Male Enhancement" Supplements (On a side note - I will admit, some of the names at the link above did give me a few good laughs… Yes, my sense of humor is almost always If you’re a man - or want to help give your man a “natural boost” while avoiding some of the dangerously laced items flooding the market - then give this natural & 3rd-party certified herbal combo a try. Knock on 'wood', I don't have the need for any 'enhancement' as everything is functioning at full capacity for me, so I can't give any first-hand feedback on the K-20 for Men

2: Big… BIG…. BBBIIIGGG... Thank YOU

Already up to 541 comments on the last blog post for input on the name/logo ideas for the new fitness studio. 541…Wow - Totally feeling the LOVE there!!! So - I send everyone who has commented a BIG THANK YOU! xo

3: A Sweet Request for You

In efforts of reaching out to more women on facebook, I’ve had to build a totally new website with a new theme. FB’s rules are pushing biz owners to increase the quality of their presence and the quality of the helpful info being shared. On that note - I’m working with a company which specializes in exactly that. And here is the fb page: The Healthy Skin Insider on Facebook It just went live in the last few days and it would be great if you’d take a look and ‘LIKE’ the page if you actually do like what you see. The more ‘likes’ the better - as what we have planned for the next stages will build on those likes…

4: Preview of What’s Coming and How YOU Can Be a Part of It <<<===

LOTS of work is going into the creation of the fitness studio I’m aiming to have open by the holiday season. So many readers have already helped in tremendous ways by sharing their votes and thoughts on the name/logo topic… And I love the feel of having everyone involved in this massive project… The idea came to me to see how many people would be willing to share their success story, based on using my methods of fitness, nutrition & mindset - to be featured as part of the launch of the new fitness studio - of course, also based on my methods. I’m posting this here because I realized there are many people who "quietly" succeed in big ways by using my programs, BUT, haven’t felt their story is ‘significant’ enough to be worthy of sharing. I’ll say it here: Each and every success story has the mighty potential to change, even transform, someone else's life. So, don’t ever underestimate “your story”. You matter in the biggest way, whether you realize it or not, and you have the power to influence & inspire others to reach their own great potential.
The Ripple Effect by Joey Atlas
So I ask, if you’re interested in helping me make the world a healthier & better place - then just let me know in the comment box below - and I’ll reach out to you personally, via email, to learn more about your story and how we can present it to the world… You’ll part be of “The Ripple Effect”... And it would be an honor to include you as part of 'the BIG project'. Any questions about the above? Please just post below :-) Also - as things progress with fitness studio location #1, I'll be sharing all the updates and 'behind the scenes' peeks right here on the blog... So stay tuned for what will continue to unfold as the weeks and months progress... Your trainer for life, - Joey Atlas xo

Help Pick the Hot Logo for My New Fitness Studios

First, again, I want to thank EVERYONE for all the input on helping narrow down the choices of names for my new group fitness studios. So grateful for all the comments, thoughts and input... It means a LOT. As of now - it seems that SCULPTABODY Fitness is the most popular. This doesn't mean I'll be dropping the other names... Because there will be room for those to brand seasonal programs and other sub-programs under the main brand. So if you chose one of the others - no worries as you may very well see it being used for something :-) ...So I've been running a logo design contest on an outsourcing website and I've had almost 500 hundred submissions. Here are the top choices, narrowed down... I'd LOVE your vote on which you feel would be the best one to represent the brand. And if you feel very strongly that one of these isn't it - and I should consider another direction, PLEASE let me hear you... I wouldn't see it as conflict - but rather, as constructive/progressive communication :-)








Keep in mind NOTHING is set in stone (i.e. - the word 'Academy' will most likely be dropped) so there will likely be some slight enhancements to the final logo version. Knowing me - and knowing my methods & mindset... Which of these truly resonates with you?

Just post your vote in the comment box below ( just use the number you see above the logo) and a little comment about "why" it's your choice.

THANK YOU!! - Joey ps - stay tuned as we'll be working on slogans very soon - and I also have a few emails I need to send you in the next few days.
