Workout Bunnies T-Shirt Giveaway!

crossfit-bunnies-workout-bunnies-5843As I mentioned in a post from a couple days ago, Workout Bunnies is a new social-networking site designed around finding workout partners in your area. The site and apps are still in early development so bear with us as we work out the kinks! You can download the Workout Bunnies Android App here, and the iPhone App will be coming along soon!

We’re launching a t-shirt line along with the site, which we designed to have a friendly and approachable look so when you see someone on the street wearing one of our t-shirts you know exactly why they’re wearing it and you instantly have a reason to strike up a conversation. We all want to live long, healthy lives and learning about how others are getting healthy can be incentive enough to dust off those dumbbells, paddles, or sneakers and start training. . .

What we need right now is PEOPLE! So let me ask you this:

Have you ever thought about working out or doing some sort of physical activity and didn’t have anyone to go with or the people you asked turned you down so you just didn’t go?

Do you ever feel unmotivated to make time for exercise?

Are you a parent and need more parents to hang out with and do kid-activities with?

Are there new activities you want to try out, but don’t have someone to go with?

Have you been gaining weight and could benefit from having a partner to help keep you going?

I could ask at least a hundred more questions, but I think you get the point. We all have excuses about why we don’t exercise. Workout Bunnies is your answer to finding new people to workout with. You can search for a jogging bunnie in your town, find new a gym bunnie, or maybe you have an elderly relative who you want to encourage to go for walks and socialize – wouldn’t it be nice to get them a bunnie to go with?

Oregon State: Nutrition Major Year One

I’ve waited far too long to post an update! Three terms went by and I’m halfway through the summer term. I had the intentions of leaving some remarks along the way, but it’s hard enough keeping up on school, let alone my blog and even drawing. Not to mention having a wedding to plan. Meh. Too much stuff.

Excuses aside, I’m here now. The first year at Oregon State was great! I think I only had one professor I didn’t particularly care for. Most of my professor-related issues are with a some staff members at the local community college that I’ve been taking a few core classes at. I’m intending to go full time at the university and say ‘sayonara’ to the community college, come Fall.

I was pleased with a class I took and OSU with Neilann Horner because she incorporated a bit of illustration with her assignments. I think teachers who integrate creativity with the sciences understand what it means to have a well-rounded education and that it’s not all about niche-learning. These diagrams were for two assignments from last term.

Unfortunately, I have only dabbled in a couple of the true nutrition-related classes so I can’t share a whole lot of information yet, but it’s my plan to start shifting this blog to more health/nutrition related topics. I have a chemistry term-project that I have to get rolling on and I’m recruiting you! There is a link to a brief survey at the end of this article that I would love for you to fill out. There will be at least one more (possibly two) surveys after this. I’ll explain more below.

In the mean time I want to break the news about my part in a local start-up company called Workout Bunnies. I was hired as an illustrator to design t-shirts for the company and have since taken a more active role in promotion and marketing. It was back when I had applied and got accepted to OSU for Nutrition and I couldn’t help but feel the timing was kismet. I’m very excited about the potential of this company because it falls right into place with my career and I feel I can grow right along with it.

In a nutshell, Workout Bunnies is a social-networking site designed around finding workout partners in your area. We (myself and company founder, Samuel Brackeen, IV) would like to take the company in more directions than just that, but for now we’re working on establishing ourselves as a workout-partner-finder as well as selling t-shirts. I’ll be posting about a Workout Bunnies t-shirt giveaway in the next few days so stay tuned (aka subscribe so you don’t miss it or follow me on facebook or twitter 😉 ). Also, if you have an android phone, download the Workout Bunnies app and leave a review – it will help greatly with further development. Iphone users – your app is coming soon so hang in there! You can still use the main site for now.

Now for this chemistry project survey. First off, you will be doing me a great favor by completing this survey series so please please please take a couple minutes to fill this first one out and if you’re feeling extra generous, please spam your friends with the link (below) as well. My project idea is basically research-based. I want to choose a vitamin or mineral that you, my readers, know little to nothing about and I will research it, write an article with information about what the vitamin does for you and in what foods you can find it, etc. There will be another survey at the end asking you what you know now and to see if it helps you with food choices.
