    I'll throw my campaign out there:

    Vote for me because I know some good jokes, and I can speak Spanish (in case we get lost somewhere in Mexico).

    lol

    Well, I actually didn't vote for myself, but I did vote for those I thought would benefit the most from a bootcamp.

    If I did somehow manage to go, I imagine I'd be too busy working my ass off to enjoy the sun and the fun. ;)

    I'm a man in my late 50's, who's bit out of shape. I workout at home, but not sure if I'm doing it right. I can't afford a trainer. It doesn't matter where the bootcamp is, I could use a professional trainer to get me started. Much Mahalos!

    I will bring world peace! Well it does look like a beauty pageant.

    I think we should vote for those most in need of guidance not the perfect body already, they just wanna go there for the sex!!!!!!

    Personally, not interested in going for the sex! Wait, what sex?

    Anyway, four years ago I was well over 200 pounds, out of shape, and not sure where to begin. I joined a gym, hired a trainer, and have made great progress. I am not yet where I want to be. I just turned 44 (today!) and need to learn more to reach my physical fitness goals. Boot Camp would be a great opportunity to get my ass kicked into shape and take me to the next level.

    Looking at the list of nominees, I'm not the one most in need of help, but I am certainly a worthy candidate for your vote.

    At my heaviest I was 250lbs. I finally grew tired of having to pay extra money for clothes because they have an extra 'X' in them. I have worked my way down to 225 and feel better than ever but I still have a long way to go. I seem to have hit a brick wall and don't seem to be making much progress anymore and I am hoping that something like this would jump start things again!

    Plus I like sex! icon_wink.gif

    I'm not sure "Bootcamp" is an accurate descriptor. Perhaps, just "Camp".

    Guess I'll have to re-verify so I can vote. Damn this homeland security crap!

    I have no particularly inspiring story here. Former stick-figure guy attempting to gain some muscle, both for the practical benefits of better posture and whatnot, and for the appearance boost. Though I'm still on the thin side (155-160 at 6 feet), it's better than I was before I began working out a few years ago (135 pounds, same height). I think I'm now at an appropriate level to really benefit from something like this: I'm in good enough shape to be likely to be able to do what the trainer assigns, but not in such good shape that I don't need the help.

    In the benefit of other people, I have no qualms about asking huge numbers of questions, so if I get to go, you can send me whatever questions you have for the trainer. I'll pester him with them, and either post or send the answers to you.

    "I personally believe that US americans...some people out there in our nation don't have maps and I believe that our education like such as in South Africa and the Iraq and everywhere like such as club atlantis cancun...and I believe that our education over here in the US should help South Africa and should help Iraq and the Asian countries and club atlantis cancun so we will be able to build up our future...."


    So basically, what I'm saying through ms. South Carolina is i can teach the cancun people where the US is on a map....

    Top Ten Reasons to send me to RJ Boot Camp:

    10. I’ve never been to Cancun or anywhere in Mexico icon_sad.gif

    9. I’m not vile, hateful, or condescending icon_mad.gif

    8. I participate thoughtfully in the RJ forums icon_neutral.gif

    7. I’ll share my before and after pictures with you (just you – no one else) icon_wink.gif

    6. I need an excuse to buy more workout clothes icon_smile.gif

    5. I work in an office with no windows, so I could use the exposure to the sun icon_eek.gif

    4. It’s the only way I’ll live out my fantasy of going through boot camp (DADT) icon_redface.gif

    3. I’m not the best looking or the most out-of-shape in the contest, so do as most Americans do and vote “middle of the road” icon_rolleyes.gif

    2. I took the time to create this lame top ten list icon_cool.gif

    1. I need to be surrounded by more of my own kind because I live in southern Virginia where we are not as plentiful as born-again-zealots and gun-toting-rednecks icon_twisted.gif

    My name is Alex. This was me at the end of my freshman year of college (Spring '07). The freshman fifteen is more than a myth. I had actually gained 25-lbs.

    photo1gr4.jpg

    I had a very poor diet, consisting of mainly Miller Lite and Domino’s pizza. Throughout the summer, my poor eating habits did not improve.

    photo2ze5.jpg

    This is me mid July, 240-lbs heavy. I was fat, greasy, out of shape, and miserable. That’s when I decided I need to make a change.

    photo3pv4.jpg

    This is me NOW, seven months later, and 65-lbs lighter.

    I stopped drinking and created a new circle of friends that motivate me to develop healthier habits instead of feeding me shots of Jager all night. I started jogging, then incorporated weight training.

    Right now, I’m at the happiest I’ve ever been in my life. I am beginning to feel more comfortable about my body. Before, I wouldn’t even have looked at myself in the mirror. But now, I am posting these pictures here, and only feel slightly embarrassed though more inspired.

    I’m a changed person, and people recognize that. But there is still work to be made. I would like to improve my body. I now am working with a PT at my Gold’s gym here, and have set a couple goals: to lose 15-lbs body fat and gain 10-lbs muscle by April 21.

    Having the opportunity to attend the Real Jock Boot Camp program would be an honor, and would really help me in achieving my goals. It would also provide me an opportunity to be more open about who I am. I’m still in the closet, but I’m looking for the right opportunity to come out. This could be the opportunity.

    Having said this, I simply ask for your vote. Even more so, I’m glad that I could share this with you all. Thanks.

    I finish my thesis that week, so please please please don't make me spend that weekend in Pullman. That would be torture.

    Also, impossible is nothing.

    ash557, you almost had me in tears icon_cry.gif Well done on your achievement. Keep up the good work icon_smile.gif

    If I had a vote, I would use all 5. I think I will protest to RJ about this icon_mad.gif

    You should vote for me out of the sheer irony it would create by sending a person who loves the snow and cold to the tropics.

    But seriously. I entered the contest because I figured if I won it would be a great reward for the hard work over the past 6 months. I know I still have a lot of work ahead of me, but I promised myself 6 months ago, after experiencing something pretty traumatic, that I would not let that event ruin me, and that I would never let myself be a victim again. So I started running and working out again, and it's paid off. I feel better about myself, and can look back and say that I have passed at least one life test with flying colors (forgive the overtly gay pun).

    I don't really have a specific reason to ask anyone to vote for me...I'm humble like that.

    I'd like to think I'm all the things I list in my profile, and I would just love the opportunity to work with the trainers to help myself along in the goals I've dedicated myself to. I've never won anything big like this, and have never been to Mexico, so your vote would mean the world to me.

    Thanks.

    I say vote for me.

    If you do I'll ensure that the republicans are all removed from power. Jesus spoke to me and told me I'd have the power.
