Are you in Olympic withdrawal like we are after watching the closing ceremony last night? Don't worry. Our friends at Macmillan Audio have the perfect cure with their second annual LISTEN WHILE YOU WORK OUT campaign, plus a chance to win a Fitbit Flex!
You can join the challenge at macmillanaudio.com/workout and report how many minutes you listened while being active. Enter your time daily, weekly, or whenever you want, but the more often you report, the better chance you'll have to show up in the Top Listeners leaderboard, updated every Monday. Then enter the sweepstakes for a chance to win a Fitbit Flex or a prize pack of five audiobooks on CD.
Newsday did a feature on Listen While You Work Out and more media coverage is still to come from Self Magazine (March issue), Fitness Magazine, Teen Vogue, and the Chicago Tribune!
