In trying to find a Healthier you, Bupa also wants to find the best health related blog. You heard right. The winner will get $5000 if you win and the 6 runner ups with get Retina Apple iPads and get their blog highlighted. Sounds excellent, what could go wrong?

All you have to do is name the blog, provide a link, tell Bupa why its so great and then wait. Great idea. Health is a growing industry and the weight loss industry and personal trainer?industry?are growing at a rapid rate.
