Million Dollar Body(TM) Is Awarding Over One Million Dollars to Help People
Lose Weight and Get in Better Shape
ANAHEIM, Calif., March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Fitness website MillionDollarBody.com has just announced the $250,000 Grand Prize winner in its Million Dollar Body Game(TM), an ongoing incentive competition that is giving away over $1,000,000 this year to spur people to lose weight and get in shape.

What turned things around for Kimberly was an infomercial for Turbo Jam. She committed herself to the program and worked the 58 pounds off in less than a year.
"Using the Beachbody programs really helped me get fit and healthy, and
being a part of the Beachbody community lead me to some great friendships
and huge rewards," said Kimberly. Working with a coach, she keeps reaching
for new goals. She has advanced
