Charlotte Trainers Show Big Hearts in Unprecedented Give-Away to Transform Lives

Contact – Julie Sawyer, 803-984-0714

January 6th, 2010- Charlotte fitness professionals, Julie Sawyer and Jason Rhymer, have teamed up for an unprecedented Transformation Contest to help people kick-start their New Year’s fitness resolutions.  For the first time ever, Sawyer and Rhymer will hold an essay contest, where 10 carefully selected entrants will win 3 free months of training to help them transform their lives.

Sawyer says, “I feel that this contest will give a few lucky people the ‘break’ that they have needed to achieve what they’ve always wanted but haven’t known how to get there.”  Sawyer explained that the contest will allow her and Jason to carefully screen the entrants and to pick the ones that they believe are ready and willing to take advantage of their services.  “The first step in a program like this is readiness,” says Sawyer, “and many times in January, we have to sort through numbers of people who think they’re ready but have not mentally made that decision to do whatever it takes to make changes, with no excuses.”

Rhymer adds, “This contest gives us a chance to get back to the reason we became fitness professionals, to help change lives.  We look forward to meeting and working with people who never thought there would be an opportunity like this for them to change their lives.”

This unprecedented transformation contest, called “Transform Charlotte,” will require all contestants to write an essay on “Why Bootcamp Would Change My Life.”  The essay can range in length from one paragraph to two pages.  Entries will be received starting January 17th, and the deadline for the entries is January 31st.  Sawyer and Rhymer will then take a week to review the entries and will reward 10 lucky people $6000 worth of coaching and fitness programming at no cost.  Winners will be announced and contacted during the week of February 7th. “We’ve decided to make 2011 the best year ever by starting it off with the biggest fitness give-away we’ve ever done.  We hope that this will spark the interest of hundreds of Charlotteans to make positive changes for the New Year.”

The “Transform Charlotte” contest is free and open to all Charlotteans, men and women over 21 years old.  The topic of the essay is “Why Bootcamp Would Change My Life.”  To submit your entry, email your essay to Julie at   For more information on other essay requirements, go to and  Check these websites for details and conditions that apply.  Sawyer’s and Rhymer’s bootcamps are run at select locations across Charlotte, including Steele Creek, Ayrsley, Matthews, Indian Trail, and South Charlotte.
