  I would love to see a rubber bracelet of some sort (like the Livestrong bracelets) that would be a daily remainder of why I am trying to live a healthier lifestyle. Maybe it would even defer me from eating poorly out when I see it there on my wrist! Anyway, just a thought...

    I have just about every thing out there but I really would love to have the exercises in one tape. I like the idea that most are short on time and doing a few in my work out room is alot easier then in front of my computer. I would purchase one in a flash

    I love the fact that we can spread the spark with these beautiful motivational tools.
The water bottles will not be available till December but can we still order them now?

    It is great that you have opened a store. I would just like to see the dvd sold separately. I have everything else. I am a big fan of dvds, especially in winter!!!

    the idea is great and just like everyone has said before me, the options certainly need some work. Just in the t-shirt area - what about simple options like a scoop or v neck for those of us who never wear the rounded standard t shirt neckline. also security with a credit card is a huge issue and folks need to be reassured that the proper steps have been taken to secure the purchase process.

  I haven't had any luck in ordering. I keep getting some strange error - "Error The requested service is unavailable between the selected locations." and I am very concerned that it doesn't have any security for the credit card purchase (I logged back in today - a week after the last time I logged on and all (ALL) my credit card info was there - normally a portion is hidden. How have people been able to place an order? Are they just printing their order and mailing it in? This has become frustrating - I've waited a year for some products beyond the red and green shirt and now I can't place my order.

I really want one of the T's. I think more people will ask me about spark when they see me wearing it. emoticon

    Love the store idea. The kit needs to list the size of ball though, and perhaps offer a choice of ball size and a sizing chart. I bought a ball and had to return it because it was too small for my height. If the ball is a 65cm size that is offered in other Bell kits sold elsewhere it would be too big for a short person.

I love Yo-Yolanda's list of suggested items. Boy, she sure was thorough!
I'd like to see a loose tee shirt, please, especially for larger women. How many size 2X women want to wear a fitted t-shirt? Oh, and extra long too, to cover the hips.

    I love the idea of the SparkPeople Store. This is a great way for the members to support this fantastically FREE site!
The suggestion I would like to recommend is having the DVDs which are offered in the
start-up kit, available some members like myself have previously invested in equipment and don't need to buy the whole kit.

    Love the store idea. I would like to see a food/exercise tracking calendar... kind of like a day book but with a full days room on the weekends. I don't mind tracking online, but I dont always have time to log on the computer and I know that writing down what I eat is one of the indicators of success at getting healthy. Thanks for listening! emoticon

    I really like the idea of this store and have made an order, my only problem is that there doest seem to be any security for credit card numbers. You might look into that.
This is the only site I've used my card on without a security system obvious. I'd like to hear from you about what you do for security to protect our card numbers. Please contact me at
Thank you.

    I just made my purchase...Got the "I ( heart) SparkPeople" Fitted T and the fitness calendar...I had to get a new calendar and I love that I can support my all time favorite web-site by making my purchases thereby, helping to keep this site FREE!!!

I would LOVE to see more variety...Hand Towels to take to the gym...megnetic calendars...totes or gym bags...beach towles for the pool...flip mats...SWEAT cards...small give away items that we could us as incentive for our TEAMS...magnetic locker mirrors...journals/food/exercise...
motivational posters...calorie trackers...note pads...sticky notes...pajamas...shorts...key chains...pins...pens...Daily Affirmations...magnets...books from Spark Team...markers...small magnetic dry erase boards...tracking charts...Goals Packet...Personalized Items...Cook Books...Necklaces, Charms, Bracelets, caps...bandannas...Nutrition Information...Success Secrets...

Oh you get the idea...More...more...more...Just like your web-site is packed with something for diversified...I think you should offer a larger variety of merchandise to appeal to the masses.

Nice Start though...Just in time for the Holidays!

    I'd would really like to see more options to get the "women's fitted t-shirt" OR a "regular t-shirt". I like the "I (heart) (SP logo)" but I don't want a fitted t-shirt. It'd be really fun if you could have a design and then choose from a few styles of shirts and then a few color choices from each style, or at least different style/color combinations.

    Received my fitness kit the other day. Have not tried it out yet. Can't wait to especially use the band for toning and strength training. I also received the SP window decal in my package. But since I don't have a car I'll put in on my fridge. Also like the fact that they had 10 cards in the package to pass around. I have a few people in mind that I think will benefit very much from the SP site.

But I will be purchasing shirts soon and maybe the lunch bag.

    I'd like to see DVDs of SP videos, so I could do them in places where I don't have internet access (or give to non-Web relatives). One collection I'd like to see would be the Swimsuit Bootcamp videos, Days 1 - 7.

A collection of the Pilates videos would also be good, although more would probably have to be made first.

    I made my first order - woohoo!!!!!!!!!!!! The fitted t-shirts look great. I suggest you add the flame t shirt to the regular, non-fitted shirts but please don't take away any of the fitted shirts!! I love them and so far, I ordered the I heart SP. Can't wait to get more but want to see how they fit first =) Thanks, SP!!!!!!!!!!!

  I like the idea of getting eating lifestyle products from the site. It would be very helpful to include the sized of things, like the lunch cooler for instance. Also, will the water bottle have a filter in it? I had one that did and one could buy replacement filters for it when the filter was too used.

I hope you come up with some new t-shirts for the males of sparkpeople. New colors are fun, but I already have a green sparkpeople t-shirt, would love to have some other t-shirts with different designs, and not just color!

Just a thought. I am always up for repping Spark where ever I go.
