Q. I signed up for the free programs but I did not receive them and/or I am not receiving emails.

A. Some email service providers (ESPs), such as gmail, yahoo, etc. incorrectly identify some email as spam. To ensure that you receive all of our emails, it is sometimes necessary that you add the strongfigure@gmail.com email addresses to your “white list” (this tells your ESP that we are approved senders and not spam). If you stopped receiving email from Strong Figure, this is the first and most critical step to take to ensure our email can be delivered to you.

What is a white list? A white list is a list of email addresses or domains that you want to receive emails from.  By adding an address or domain to your white list, you are telling the email system not to filter email from that address or domain.  Follow the appropriate instructions below for the email service provider you are using to add us to your white list and to ensure that you receive our emails.

Q. How do I become a Strongfigure Ambassador and what are the duties/perks?

A. Strongfigure Ambassadors are those who are leaders or are working to become leaders in the health and fitness industry. Many are just like me–running their own websites and blogs–building their brand and promoting their passions. Many are athletes doing what they love the most–being strong, fast, working hard, and promoting all that it means to be a strong figure–both with body and heart. If you want to inspire and motivate others, if you believe in our manifesto, and if you know you have what it takes to promote strength, courage, a healthy lifestyle, you can apply to be an ambassador at strongfigure.com/ambassadors.  Ambassador applications are currently closed. We anticipate reopening early 2017. 

What do you get? All the perks of course! You’ll get the opportunities to help promote our products–even make some extra $$ for affiliating with us. You’ll get discounts on anything we sell. You’ll get our logo to put on your website, and you’ll have special access to an amazing Facebook group of ambassadors where we share our information, our questions, our recipes, our dreams, and our successes. You can grow your social media presence, your website, and you help us do the same! More than anything, you’ll be part of a team–a growing team–taking a stand against disease and fighting for more reps, PRs, and a longer, happier, healthier life.

Q. What is “Team Strongfigure” and how do I apply?

A. Team Strongfigure (or #teamstrongfigure) is made up of elite Strong Figure Ambassadors who are paving their futures with medals, awards, top prizes, and total badass things that, well, not many of us can do. Are you performing amazing athletic feats? Apply to be an ambassador first and tag us in all that you do. You might get chosen and you may be asked to become a part of Team Strongfigure. If you accept, you get all the ambassador perks plus more freebies (and cash-making opportunities, including sponsorship) as these opportunities become available.

Q. How do I get your awesome Strongfigure apparel I see on Instagram and Facebook?
