Are you feeling the holiday bulge? Have you lost the motivation to exercise or eat properly? Are you desperate for a physical transformation?

Finally, would you like 2014 to be The Year of You?

The Bulletin does.

With the help of trainer Robert Iniquez and Manteca’s CORE Athletic Performance, The Bulletin would like to provide one lucky reader with the weight-loss/fitness experience of a lifetime.

Imagine you didn’t have to do it alone.

Imagine you had someone to guide you through workouts and help structure a meal plan. Imagine a thousand voices cheering your every triumph or guiding you through those turbulent times.

Led by Iniquez, CORE will provide you with top-level training and nutritional advice, giving you the support you’ll need to accomplish your fitness goals. You’ll receive a free Hardcore membership, which includes six days of access to the gym located on Vanderbilt Circle, weight training and bootcamps.

Applications must include name and contact information; current height, weight and activity level; as well as a testimonial, detailing why you need this transformation. Submit your information to Managing Editor James Burns at

If selected, you will be asked to keep a weekly journal that will appear in the Manteca Bulletin and its Health and Wellness magazines for the duration of your journey. The journal will chronicle your successes and failures. The Bulletin also asks that you make yourself available for periodic photo shoots and interviews with a reporter for additional stories.
