Million Dollar Body Game - What is it?
Play the Million Dollar Body Game and you could win money just for working out. Every year Beachbody gives away thousands of dollars to members of the Team Beachbody community as a way of saying thank you and to reward your commitment to a healthy lifestyle. Ordinary people have achieved extraordinary results using Beachbody's fitness programs, and you could be one of them.

There are two great ways to play the Million Dollar Body Game:

1. WOWY SuperGym™ Daily Sweepstakes
Every day that you log in to WOWY SuperGym™ and enter your workout, you will be automatically entered in the Daily Sweepstakes. You could win a $300 cash prize or an electronic item such as an iPod, digital camera, or portable DVD player. And one day a week—the Mystery Day—someone will win $1,000.

Free members can also enter the Daily Sweepstakes. Click here to complete the alternate entry sweepstakes form each day you wish to enter the contest and log your workout in WOWY SuperGym™.

You can enter the contest even if you're still a work in progress; as long as you're seeing results we want to see your entries.
