Heather Paulson Challenges Affiliate Fit Club To Swimsuit Showdown

heather paulsonOn the lighter side of things, Heather Paulson (right) has issued a challenge to a group of prominent affiliate marketers and managers that could be one of the highlights of Affiliate Summit West.

Heather is a ReveNews writer/blogger who interviewed me for her “Internet Expansion Into Asia” piece last November, as well as founder and president of internet marketing consultancy and outsourced affiliate program manager, Paulson Management Group.

Heather has thrown down the gauntlet to the members of the Affiliate Fit Club, two teams of affiliates and affiliate members who were aiming to compete and lose weight by Affiliate Summit West a la “The Biggest Loser” format.

The members include veterans like Shawn Collins, Jim Kukral, Wade Tonkin, Karen Garcia, Lisa Riolo and Wade Sisson.

The affiliate fit club had been an inspriation to me, especially since working in front of a computer every day and not getting out much has meant the scale has hovered at 192 lbs for quite some time (especially after having great eats in the US each time I’m there for a seminar or event).

I’ve started swimming for about 20 minutes a couple of times a week (you need to get at least 20 minutes of rigorous exercise to get the metabolic rate into its “fat burning” phase.) and have lost about 5 lbs over the last week.

I’m definitely game to take part in it, if it opens up again. I’m highly competitive, so I’ll be in to win!

So it was pretty inspirational to hear that Heather has lost about 35 lbs (possibly more since the last Affiliate Summit – I’m not sure if she meant ASW last Feb or Affiliate Summit East in Miami last July). In any case, 35 lbs is very impressive!

She’s also thrown down this challenge:

And I’m sure she’ll be pretty smoking in a swimsuit.

Shawn’s mentioned that he’ll be in a tux at 6pm that day (kinda expected given that he’s one of the organizers for Affiliate Summit West). He’s also mentioned that the AFC has kinda fizzled out (Their last post was on 18th November on the Affiliate Fit Club blog).

And I thought it was pretty strategic for Heather to have this right after the Christian Affiliate Marketer’s Association “Gospel Brunch” that day. Where I have the feeling I might be challenging Wade Tonkin to see how much White Chocolate Walnut Cookies and White Chocolate Banana Bread Pudding we can chow down.

If they do show up, I am fairly sure the Affiliate Fit Club is set for a downfall…

But more importantly, if it does go through, you can be sure that pictures of Heather in a bikini and the members of the Affiliate Fit Club in their Swimsuit Showdown will make it to this blog.

Stay tuned…

    Hey Andrew -

    Yeah, since things weren’t moving forward as fast as I would have liked with the Affiliate Fit Club, I decided to start Affiliate Fatblogging on my own blog: http://blog.affiliatetip.com/archives/category/affiliate-fatblogging/

    Since Heather’s video, there has been some chatter in emails about a group of people getting together in the mornings during Affiliate Summit for walks.

    So I plan to do some Netwalking (networking while walking), and it will be an informal thing for anybody interested.

    I’m certainly game for affiliate fitwalking!

    YES! I am all for the Netwalking that Shawn is suggesting, however netwalking “every morning” might be a challenge as many of us plan on going to a’uh’ “few” of the parties.. :) See you soon Andrew and Shawn!

    Hey thanks Andrew for your comments – YES I am also game for affiliate fitwalking! (Not EVERY morning however) ha ;-)

    I was thinking about walking on Saturday and Sunday – I can’t do Monday or Tuesday, because I have to get started on things too early.

    I get in a little late on Saturday and will be headed to the Affiliate Classroom Live workshop. So that might be difficult.

    Sounds like a plan (at least for Sunday).

    Great, look forward to seeing you, Heather.

    Perhaps we can get some fitness tips from you as we’re walking too!

    Hi Andrew,
    You knew when the topic of fitness came up, I’d be here!

    I’ll gladly help with any fitness tips, questions, etc..

    I wish you the best,

    Hey Coop,
    Good to see you here.

    Maybe you can help design a 30-min powerwalking workout for a bunch of somewhat out-of-shape affiliate marketers, walking around in late winter/early spring in las vegas and mail me!
