Special SparkPeople Issue of 'All You' Magazine Out Now

By , SparkPeople Blogger
Everyone at SparkPeople has been eager to share some big news for months now, but we had to wait until the time was right. That time has finally come!

For the last several months, we've been working closely with the writers and editors at All You magazine. We love All You for many reasons: it's low price, it's realistic portrayal of real women with real bodies, its great tips and advice. So we were beyond thrilled to contribute to the magazine to help create a special "SparkPeople" health and fitness issue, which is on newsstands (sold exclusively at Walmart stores) today!

This is a major breakthrough for the SparkPeople brand—a great opportunity for us to showcase the amazing weight-loss stories of several members, share our workouts, recipes and advice in a new format, and Spread the Spark to even more people. And the photos! I have one word to summarize the food, the exercises and the before and after shots of our members: Breathtaking!

You can find this issue at Walmart starting today, but here's a sneak peek of what—and who—you'll find inside (plus an offer to get this special issue for FREE!).

A few highlights and special people you'll find inside All You's Winter 2011 Health and Fitness issue:
  • Weight-loss success stories (and strategies) of 5 SparkPeople members: LORIELP, PRINCESSNURSE, SMARTLADY66, SP_COACH_NANCY, and TONIABLAKE
  • 10 deliciously simple recipes from our very own Chef Meg
  • A seasonal slimdown story "Get Thinner This Winter" designed by SparkPeople's Dietitian Becky and featuring a 10-week meal plan to help you drop 10 pounds
  • "Hone your mental fitness," with motivation and emotional weight-loss strategies from Coach Dean
  • "Trim and Tone in 10 Minutes," an at-home winter workout from me, Coach Nicole. (I was flown to New York City for my first-ever professional photo shoot for this one. SO COOL!)
  • An inspiring story of online friendship featuring members who met at SparkPeople.com and later in real life, featuring BETH43, BUGMAMA42, GREENTREES76 and more
  • An excerpt from the Strong Start Guide of the new paperback edition of The Spark
  • Tips, mantras and advice from 19 more SparkPeople members sprinkled throughout
  • Plus dozens of other stories from the writers and editors of All You, such as a 4-week walking plan, reviews of the latest cardio dance DVDs, tips to end emotional eating, and strategies to indulge without blowing your diet!
While supplies last, you can get a FREE copy of this amazing issue when you purchase the new paperback version of The Spark (now less than $12 at amazon.com!)—the perfect combo of tips, resources and practical advice to start this year on the right foot!

We hope that you'll help us Spread the Spark by looking for this issue of All You on newsstands. If you can't tell already, 2011 is going to be a BIG year for SparkPeople. Thanks for your support!

I've never seen this magazine at Walmart, not back then in 2011 when this came back nor ever since then. Report
Sorry, comment was for different post.
DOH! Report
Does anyone know how I could get my hands on a copy of the Special SparkPeople Issue of 'All You' Magazine? I know it came out a few years ago but I would really love to see it. Thanks, MarySparks2013

I went back to Walmart yesterday and found "All You". It was the February issue, though. I asked about the SparkPeople issue and they said they had never received it. Whatever happened, it seems to be fixed now. I am ordering extras of the back issue from "All You". Their number for back issues is 1-800-274-6800. Report
I have been hounding the Walmart stores in my area (Pewaukee, WI) all month and have been unable to find the magazine. I have requested a copy from SparkPeople which is to be mailed to me. However, I think SparkPeople should know that there's a problem with distribution in some of the areas. I have even checked two Walmart stores in Milwaukee and they have never heard of it. Report
Does anyone know how long this issue will be out on the shelves? Report
Wish I had read this article before I went to WalMart earlier today. Can't wait to check it out tomorrow. Report
All You is such an awesome magazine! I subscribe and sadly this special health & fitness issue is not included! I ran out to Wal-Mart and scooped up a copy and could not put it down! Way to go, SparkPeople & All You! Very informative & practical advice for "real, everyday" people!! Report
Never read it. I wonder if Walmart Canada even stocks it? Report
I have never read "All You," and I'm in Okinawa right now, so probably won't pick it up because it may be too late when I get back to the states. Report
Got mine yesterday. It is a great magazine. Thanks to all for putting it out. Report
I will try and get to the store in the next few days to pick up a copy. I hope they do not run out before I get there. Report
If you bought a copy of The Spark, check your online bonus program. You can sign up for a copy of the magazine there. The magazines are supposed to arrive in early Feb. Report
No free copy with my purchase of the Spark. It arrived today. 8( Report
I subscribe to All You already. Great magazine! Report
I will pick - up a copy when I do grocery shopping on Friday. Report
Never heard of All You, but am excited to get to WalMart and pick it up! Just as soon as the snow stops.... Report
Hope to get there before they run out. Report
Got my copy form Wal-Mart this weekend and LOVE the articles and the magazine itself. First-time reader and will definitly purchase another copy again. Report
I love All You magazine (I subscribe to it) and I will look at WalMart for this special issue. Thanks for letting us know about it!! Report
Picked up my copy yesterday when I was shopping. I just skimmed it last night but I'm anxious to read the entire issue. Report
I do read this magazine, about every other month. I love the clothing articles, fit for all shapes and sizes, and the recipes are terrific. @hippichick1, I work at WM, my home away form home, with a great group of fellow associates. I love my job (usually), and your claim re: unions is BS and uninformed. Anyway, I love the layout of All You and their reader involvement. The team-up with this realistic magazine and SparkPeople is perfect! Coach Nicole, you look awesome in your spread!! Report
I subscribe to this magazine and I just got a new issue but it doesn't have either of these covers.?? Report
I was actually featured in the March 2010 issue for my weight loss. I had mentioned SP in my interview, but they publish just a tiny snippet in the magazine and that didn't make the cut.

It's a great magazine with wonderful information and lots of great coupons, too. Report
There's two covers for this issue (one shown above and another with a red-haired lady wearing a blue top). This is an anwesome issue with lots of encouraging stories. Report
I am an All You subscriber! I can't wait to get the issue. Report
I was waiting for my flight in an airport and found the new issue in the store by my gate! I read it from cover to cover on my 4-hour flight home and thought it was wonderful. It's definitely geared to women, though. SparkMen may be put off. Report
I picked it up over the weekend and there's a lot of great info in it. I was so excited to see SP featured in a magazine, woohoo! Report
Yea! I have gotten this magazine for a while and it is well worth it. Glad to see Sparkpeople featured in it. I will be on the look out for this issue. Report
Still looking for this magazine issue, they still have the blue one at my local walmart that has the piggy bank on it. Hopefully they will hurry up, ready to read this issue! Report
I've never heard of this magazine before. If I can get a copy I would love to read this issue. Report
I love All You, I have a subscription. Can't wait to ge the special issue. Report
Picked up my copy today and started reading it--TONS of great information!

Thank you, Spark! Report
How wonderful! I had never heard of this magazine prior to the blog... Report
Can you get this magazine in Canada? Never heard of it. Report
ohh - my question was answered. Report
Didn't see it at our Walmart today. Report
OMG! All You is one of my favorite magazines. I love it because it relates to "real" people, not "plastic" people. If you've never read it before Sparkers, I would highly recommend picking up an issue.
I will definitely look for this one. Thanks for the info. Report
Went to a Cincinnati Walmart on Saturday. They only had the Christmas Issue and January 21st issue. Looked through the January 21st and could find no Spark. Wish I could buy this at Barnes and Noble. Report
I love it! Report
I plan to look for it. Report
I've never read All You and probably won't pick up this issue because I've boycotted Walmart. Report
I don't get by Walmart very often but I will check the grocery store when I go. Report
Got mine yesterday! Report
I picked up the magazine yesterday afternoon and totally enjoyed my first skim through....now, I'm eating up every word! Of course since I'm here on SP every day there are some things that I've seen before but so much that seems new...I love reading the individual stories....Coach Nicole's workout in the mag is great! and the food articles make me want to get up and cook some tasty healthy food! Great magazine issue...Congrats Sparkpeople!! Report
I am constantly amazed at how much good Spark has done in the world! Can't wait to get this to reaffirm those conclusions. Report
I have the original book. I don't shop in WalMart very often and won't make a special effort to go this this. Report
I read All You regularly including the special issues. I will be reading this one too. In addition to the real-life articles and tips it has, it also has lots of coupons. Report
This magazine is how I found out about the Spark website. Order the Spark Book on Amazon for my Kindle and didn't get points either. Have just started reading and logging my foods so far so good!!! Report
My goodness, buy it or don't buy it, but why do so many people have to use this as a forum to knock WalMart?! Report
