A Special Message from SparkGuy: The Most Important Thing You Can Do to Spread the Spark

Over the years, I have seen how SparkPeople’s special combination of nutrition, fitness and motivation has helped millions of people like you lose weight, get fit and transform their lives. As long as I can remember, I have hoped to make SparkPeople into a book so that it can help even more people reach their goals. And I'm happy to say that my goal of writing a SparkPeople book has finally been accomplished!

The upcoming book is called The Spark. I've been working on it, along with help from your SparkPeople Coaches and members, for the past year and am happy to announce that it will be released in January 2010! This new book takes the SparkPeople program to a whole new level. In fact, most of the content in the book (which includes success stories, motivational strategies, meal plans, new workouts, and the story behind SparkPeople) has never been presented on the website.

Writing the book has been a difficult but exciting adventure. It was harder than I could have expected, but the final book is also better than I could have imagined! At one point, while reviewing a nearly-finished version of the manuscript, I had tears of happiness because I could tell that we had really captured the spirit of SparkPeople in a way we’ve never been able to do on the site. I think you’ll know what I mean when you read the book yourself. You can learn more about the book by visiting

Whether you’re just starting out or you’re ready to take your program in a whole new direction, The Spark is for you. If you've struggled with explaining "SparkPeople" to friends or family members, it's for them, too.

By starting and keeping it free to the public, I've realized my life's dream of helping millions of people reach their goals, lose weight and lead healthier lives. But so many people still need our help! If The Spark book is a success, it will help spread SparkPeople's message even farther so we can help even more people. Just imagine a world full of people who are as "Sparked" as all of you are!

Preorders for this book start today! By going to and placing your order for The Spark before it is released, you'll get several free gifts and have the chance to win prizes. But on a personal note, pre-ordering this book may very well be the most important thing you can ever do to help Spread the Spark. A high number of sales—especially in this months before the book is released—can help The Spark get more press coverage, reach the national bestseller lists, and encourage retailers to stock (and promote) the book. We need your help to make that happen so we can reach our mission of helping even more people!

Each book our members buy helps more than you can imagine. Members have often wanted to have SparkPeople featured on Oprah and other major media outlets. We’ve done a lot of research and have learned that a successful, high selling book is probably the #1 way to make this actually happen!

When you preorder The Spark, you’ll receive the following free gifts and bonuses:

  • FREE exclusive 10-minute workout video from Coach Nicole's upcoming DVD, The Spark: Fit, Firmed & Fired Up–not available in stores until January!
  • FREE access to an Online Bonus Book Program that includes new content, recipes and tips not found in the book or on the website.
  • 2,000 SparkPoints applied directly to your SparkPeople account and
  • Chances to win prizes each week (The sooner you order, the more chances you'll have to win!)

Preorder your copy today and learn more by visiting Please encourage your family, friends (and SparkFriends) to purchase it, too!

It’s the easiest most powerful way to Spark your own life—and do your part to spread the SparkPeople message to the world!
