How Would You Spend $1000 on Your Health???


Today is your lucky day. Someone just walked up and handed you $1000 - the catch though is that you have to spend it on your health. So I want to know...

Trainer of course!!

I already go to a gym and am satisfied with the group classes, my own home cooking is good enough, and my husband gives great back massages. So I voted for cosmetic surgery. I'd like to have a laser or microdermabrasion treatment to improve the texture of my skin.

I am pretty healthful eater, so I'd spend the money on a few personal training sessions and use the rest to buy an elliptical machine.

Personal trainer!! I eat reasonably (lol) well enough already, and I'd be afraid if I bought the equipment I just wouldn't use it. A trainer would motivate me!

OMG! I would go back to dance class twice a week (Jazz and tahitian), take up rock climbing, AND take a few more classes towards my nutritional science masters :)

I wish you could vote for two...chef and personal trainer is what I would do.

Trainer or chef -- I think I would lean more towards a chef. No more cooking for me! :)

I know it sounds bad, but since I'm fairly fit already, have pretty good eating habits, and already own a treadmill, I would love to get a mini tummy tuck. I've got a pouch of loose, saggy skin from two pregnancies that I don't think diet and exercise is ever going to remove. If 1000 dollars wouldn't cover it, I'd take a fitness vacation. Hike through a forest, something like that.

I totally would buy some sessions with an Alexander Technique teacher or my deep tissue therapy guy (who I can't afford anymore).

$1000 would buy me at least 15 more sessions with my trainer - and that would be awesome! I love working out with someone that can help me learn new exercises as well as make sure I am doing them correctly!

massages... all the way. I'm a very stressed person and a massage a week would make my entire life better I think.

I already belong to a gym so I would definitely buy a piece of equipment to keep at home. Most likely a treadmill b/c thats where I push myself the hardest, can hit my highest heart rate and where I see the most results coming from. Having a piece of equipment at home would never allow me to make any excuses for not getting some cardio in, even if it was just 20 mins. And this way my roomate (who can't afford a gym right now) could use it too!

I'd do the gym (for the elliptical and treadmills), dance classes (for toning), martial arts (self-defense), spinning and aerobic classes (cardio)... And then use some of the money for good workout clothes and shoes.

Tough decision. Went with lessons to try something new. Think Maggie the Cat's idea is great and would have a tremendously positive affect on one's well being.

exercise equipment, without a doubt. I don't need a personal trainer or a chef since I already work out and eat healthy all on my own. that said, the equipment would be a way to enrich my workout routine.

I would definitely hire a personal chef. 1, I'm a begining to learn how to cook. 2, I don't eat right and that's the main reason why I'm not in shape!

I'd probably invest in a strength training set-up - I've already got a treadmill, but geez, I am having a hard time getting into strength training! Either that, or I'd blow $1000 on new exercise attire and shoes. I mean, that counts, right?

I'd need the chef longer than a grand would afford me (same with the trainer) I want to take kickboxing or rock climbing lessons, so that's what I would use it on.

Oh...I wish I could all of these things. Personal trainer, classes, my own equipment would be awesome. MaggietheCat had a great idea. I ultimately chose "see a specialist" because I LOVE acupuncture but it's $80/pop out of pocker. Also, it's so ironic this blog just posted becaue I JUST wrote about a therapy saga I'm going through on HuffPo and I would absolutely HAVE to use the moolah for that. If I send in my address, can you send over the money? I'll even include a SASE. Pretty please? x, Leslie

hehe Pinup, don't feel bad cuz i'd wanna do that too. but i think that's a short term answer and if you don't eat right, all that fat could come right back! i'd split the money on a personal trainer and an elliptical or bike machine. that way, i could find out good techniques but still be able to work out at home! :)
