Men’s Health, Women’s Health Seek Fittest Facebook Friends

Men’s Health and Women’s Health are looking to ring in the summer with a few hard bodies.

The two Rodale magazines launched the Fittest Friends of Men’s Health & Women’s Health Facebook challenge, which runs through July 24. Men and women who submit photos of their physiques will compete for the chance to appear in upcoming issues as fitness models. The grand-prize winners will also receive three-night trips for two to El Dorado Royale, in Mexico’s Riviera.

Visitors to the Facebook pages for Men’s Health and Women’s Health can vote for their favorites, with the top 10 of each gender to be voted on by a panel of experts including Los Angeles Clippers All-Star forward Blake Griffin, LPGA golfer Michelle Wie, UFC champion Jon Jones, actress Rachel Nichols, a scout from modeling agency Wilhelmina, Men’s Health editor-in-chief David Zinczenko, and Women’s Health editor-in-chief Michele Promaulayko.

The grand-prize winners will be announced Aug. 22.
