Do they use the ideas that people posted on here to get new stuff for the store. Because I see a lot of good ideas, but I don't see the items in the store, In fact the store seems pretty bare. I can think of a million things to add to the store. It depends too on where they get the merchandise, to pass on the savings to us members. Maybe they should get a professional buyer to stock the store. Sun, 29 Mar 2015 21:52:43 EST FIt & Fresh When will the Small Portion Prep Kit be available again?

Tue, 31 Dec 2013 12:57:36 EST Problems with the SparkPeople Nutrition Counter Compared with other monitors of nutrition (e.g., that of My Fitness Pal and Fitbit), SparkPeople's nutrition counter is very weak. It wastes a lot of one's time by simply recycling generic info. instead of maintaining a record of one's daily habits and preferences. I usually eat a rather small range of options for breakfast and lunch, yet with SP I must scroll through a long list of the items I have ever eaten for any meal. Why not retain a list of items and portions I've typically eaten ... Tue, 17 Dec 2013 05:57:27 EST Overseas When can people overseas buy the products in the shop?

I am not working out again after not working out for a little over a year. My body is sooo sore. How do I keep going? What can I do to make my body feel better? Thu, 15 Jul 2010 10:35:32 EST Heart Rate Monitor I think I may have suggested this in the past, but I think it needs to go up here again. <BR> <BR> I just checked the SparkStore and there is no Heart Rate Monitor. <BR> <BR> I am in need of a new HRM and figured I would check the sparkstore because I KNOW if spark sells it, it must be good. I would also like to support the cause. But alas, no HRM. <BR> <BR> Another idea is spark ipod/iphone armband. Great way to spread the spark.

I've never had a weight problem until the last 5 - 6 years. So it's been very hard to admit that I do. I'm about 35 lbs overweight and want to get back down so I don't feel so bloated and uncomfortable. Glad to be here!

Fri, 5 Mar 2010 13:27:02 EST DVD's I love the DVD's that came out - I didn't think I would use them much since I typically workout with DVD's all the time anyway, but the 10 min work great as an add-on to my other routine. I would definately buy more DVD's if they were made. I like a lot of the clips online, but unfortunately I really can't workout by my computer. It would be a great addition to have a DVD that has pilates, ball workouts, stretch or yoga, etc. I hope there's a plan to put more DVD's together! Thu, 25 Feb 2010 14:43:35 EST Where's my order ?

Tue, 29 Sep 2009 17:13:13 EST New Item Idea Since, its starting to get cold outside and some of us workout outside. I think that a headband that covers your ears with the Sparkpeople logo on the front of the headband. You could have the head band come in different colors or just black. Some people wear a hat in the winter too, put the logo on the front of the hat. I also think a scarf with the logo at the ends of the scarf or have the whole scarf say sparkpeople in big letters across the scarf. So many fun ideas! Tue, 29 Sep 2009 11:13:43 EST shorts? I was surprised to not see any shorts in the Sparkpeople store! I like the capris but I pretty much only wear shorts when I exercise indoors. I'd love to see some nice shorts with the spark logo at the bottom! <BR> <BR> I'm also a fan of the performance wear, especially the racerback tops, I'd love to see more variety in those!

Thu, 27 Aug 2009 04:14:25 EST I'm new Hi, My name is Janice and I am new to the SparkPeople Store Team. I joined because I like buying fitness products like books, DVDS and fitness equipment. I just ordered the balance board that was featured. I have always wanted a balance board and this one is reasonable at only 13 dollars. With shipping, it added up to 18 dollars. It is inflateable and you can do many excercises on it. They said they will be coming out with a DVD for it soon. I have seen them use a balance board on the Bigg... Wed, 26 Aug 2009 11:02:28 EST Spark People DVDs I just purchased the "SparkPeople Cardio Blast" and "SparkPeople Fitness Starter Kit DVD". Since I don't have it yet, I'm curious who else has purchased them and what you thought? I have SO many tapes and DVDs, but I'm so bored with them that I just had to try something new. <BR> <BR> <em>304</em> Mon, 24 Aug 2009 12:16:04 EST How about the UK fans? Hi,I would love to get some stuff from your store, but why isn't there a UK based agency, so us poor Brits don't have to pay things like currency exchange surcharges, or import taxes etc? <BR> There must be quite a lot of UK SparkPeople who would be interested too.

Mon, 6 Jul 2009 05:30:19 EST Newbie in town... Just wanted to introduce myself... <BR> I live in Monterey County, CA and just started with SparkPeople a couple of weeks ago. I decided it was time to get healthy when I found out my BMI was 26, which ok, I guess it wasn't THAT bad, but it was definitly time to take some action. Before coming here, I did Weight Watchers for a few months and lost 20 lbs. But after playing around in here, I discovered a whole new world. No offense to WW, but there is a much bigger world out there than j... Fri, 3 Jul 2009 16:35:32 EST Hey! My name is Dana and I'm from Georgia. The company I work for has a fit program that lasts two months every year to help inspire the formerly uninspired to get healthy and drop the extra weight. This year I took them up on this offer and now more than ever I am ready to shed 105lbs! I know it won't happen overnight, but with the support from this site so far I feel confident I am going to make it all the way this time! I hope everyone is doing well and if anyone needs a newbie kick in the rear... Thu, 2 Jul 2009 15:54:26 EST Large shirt order? What would it take to get tshirts CHEAP!

I thought these were the low waisted pants and my belly would hang out but they are not, they do come up to my waist. They are soft and movable, I highly recommend these! <BR> <BR> SparkPeople Unisex Performance Shirt is another good shirt, I really like mine. <BR> <BR> Stainless steel water bottle- I was disappointed with this product. ...
