Early this year, SparkPeople announced our biggest news ever--we signed a major book deal with Hay House!

Well, we're happy to announce that as of today, you can preorder your copy of "The Spark: The 28-Day Breakthrough Plan for Losing Weight, Getting Fit, and Transforming Your Life," which connects the dots between health, fitness, weight loss and goal-setting in a whole new way.

It reveals, for the first time ever, the top 27 secrets of success of members who have achieved their goals and/or lost 100 pounds or more. This one-of-a-kind book leads you to understand what you CAN do to make your life healthier and increase your odds of being more successful in all aspects of your life! Plus, you'll get to read about the complete history of SparkPeople and the man who made it all possible--Chris "SparkGuy" Downie. (Note: As a SparkPeople employee, I've heard Chris' story several times, but reading it in the book actually brought me to tears--happy ones!)

The book officially launches on Jan. 5, 2010, but as exciting as it will be to see "The Spark" on the shelves of your favorite store, don't wait until then.

There are plenty of reasons to order your copy ahead of time:

In addition to a FREE, exclusive, sneak peek 10-minute workout from the forthcoming "The Spark: Fit, Firmed & Fired Up DVD," you'll get 1,000 SparkPoints, a special icon to display on your SparkPage and membership in "The Spark" SparkTeam. Plus, you also have the opportunity to win prizes:

    By ordering early, you have more chances to win weekly prizes, including iPods, gift certificates to the SparkPeople store, fitness products and more. The giveaways begin October 1 (a week from today) and run through January 1, and winners will be announced on The Spark SparkTeam! And, some winners will be chosen to share their Success Stories and healthy living tips on the dailySpark.

In addition, once the book launches on January 5, you will have access to a FREE, EXCLUSIVE Online Bonus Book Program that includes:

  • SparkPoints tracker with a chance to win prizes!
  • New content, recipes and workouts from "The Spark"
  • Downloadable tools, trackers and 28-Day Program Journal

"The Spark" is for you, whether you’re just starting out or you’re ready to take your program to a whole new level! Encourage your family and friends to purchase it, too! This might be the most important thing you can ever do to help Spread the Spark.

    It's supposed to be good until November 30th. I received the extra points however,when I went to use the $20.00 certificate ,with the certificate code that I received in the confirmation e-mail it said that the code was expired or invalid. Hum,so what's that all about,today is only the 6th????? - 10/6/2009   3:13:15 PM

    I ordered mine on the 3rd I think it was. I got the email today that says I get the gift certificate and stuff! I am so surprised! There was another article on this where someone commented and said they had ordered about the same time and 1600 had already ordered. I guess I barely made it in! I wonder if the people who preorder but are after the 1000 still get the sparkpoints and icon. that would be cool. I feel like I won already! Cool!

    BLessings all!

    I ordered mine and got a conformation from amazon but I didn't get anything else like the free item or any place to get that. I am confused as some say you get a e-mail conformation with a place to do that and I didn't.. I didn't get the icon under my name either.. Just my luck I guess. - 10/4/2009   9:20:05 AM
