Wanna know what it’s like to go five rounds with Frankie Edgar? Wanna see how a relentless U.S. war hero puts himself through the paces? Wanna feel what it’s like to have Ronda Rousey trying to yank your arm out of socket? Now maybe you can.
Gaspari Nutrition is launching a new contest Wednesday at 2 p.m. Eastern through its Facebook page, and if you’re one of the lucky winners you could get a chance to train later this year with Edgar, Stann, Rousey and others. Better yet? One of the first-place winners is going to become the grand prize winner – a prize of $25,000.
The contest runs in three two-month segments. The first runs through May 31, and will give a winner the chance to train with Rousey, the Strikeforce women’s bantamweight champion, or fitness cover model Ava Cowan. The second segment runs through July 31. That winner will get a chance to train with bodybuilding legends Rich Gaspari or Flex Lewis. And the third segment, which runs through Sept. 30, will give a winner the opportunity to train with Edgar, the former UFC lightweight champ who has an upcoming title fight rematch with Ben Henderson, or UFC middleweight contender Stann.
Winners in each segment will get to choose which athlete they’ll train with and will win a 3-day, 2-night trip for the training session (airfare, hotel), autographs, photos, a year’s supply of Gaspari products and $500 spending money. After all three segments are complete, each of the three winners will write an essay about their training experience and what they would do with the grand prize. Of those three entries, one will be awarded the $25,000 grand prize.
