It’s a new year and perhaps it’s time for a new you.

Well with the help of Birmingham City Football Club and Official Nutrition Partner, USN, we can help make that happen.

The Body Makeover Challenge is USN’s 12-week programme designed to inspire individuals to reach their personal goal in 2013.

Your personal goals might include weight loss and lifestyle changes as well as improving your personal fitness levels and building lean muscle mass. Whatever your aspirations, the Body Makeover Challenge will help you shape up and get fit fast!

A five-strong team of Blues staff have already signed up and, as it runs throughout the whole of 2013, there’s still time for you to pledge yourself to USN’s unique and internationally-recognised challenge.

A member of the Blues team will bring you a weekly blog via every Friday to share their own struggles, dietary tips or mini achievements. We’ll of course also love to hear your own stories during the 12-week challenge.

As well as our own weekly blogs, USN’s dedicated team of experts are always on-hand to support, offer advice and motivate individuals to get fit fast.

The life changing challenge sees 12 finalists chosen and has illustrious prizes, for both the male and female category winners. The fitness competition is judged on three core aspects: your ‘before’ and ‘after’ photos, your key measurements and your report on how your lifestyle has changed.

Melinda Cooksey, Body Makeover Brand Manager said: “The free to enter 12-week Body Makeover Challenge has given us some truly inspirational transformations with life changing results.
“It’s amazing what people can do when they put their mind to it. Everyone can take the challenge whether it be to gain or lose weight.  Make your goal a reality and create your own transformation today.

“The USN Body Makeover Team is here to help you all the way through with free online advice! And if you join in now you can share your stories with the Birmingham City team members that are embarking on their own challenges.”

Andy Walker, Blues’ Head of Media and Communications, added: “Naturally it’s with some trepidation that we embark on this challenge but that’s where the benefit of doing it as part of a team comes to the fore; we’re all able to spur each other on during those tough periods.

“It would be great if other Bluenoses  committed themselves to the challenge and shared their stories with us.”

The two winners will become USN ambassadors and win a host of prizes including £5,000 cash, £2,000 worth of supplements and personal training sessions. The other ten finalists will also walk away with product sponsorship and a host of goodies.

So if you’re a Bluenose looking to shape up for 2013 then join our team today by logging on to: and clicking the ‘Body & Lifestyle’ tab*.

*To enter you must be 18 years of age or over, a resident of the UK and use at least one variety of USN’s product during your 12-week program to be eligible.
