In addition to being a photographer for the past 12 years, I recently pursued my AFLCA certification and last October I started my training to become a coach at @otfnamao. I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside some pretty amazing women who have also been my fitness coaches for the past three years.
With Covid-19 forcing all gyms and fitness clubs to close, we all suddenly found ourselves unable to lead in-person classes. To fill the void until gyms are allowed to re-open, many of us have been volunteering our time to coach live classes on Instagram. As the weather has warmed up and restrictions on outdoor gathering have been loosened, three amazing women from my studio (@firstname.lastname@example.org and @christydolson) have begun to run outdoor boot camps to help support small business in Edmonton as well as the Edmonton Humane Society. 50% of the proceeds from their bootcamps will be used to purchase items and gift certificates in support of small businesses in Edmonton. The other 50% will be donated to the SPCA in Edmonton. Participants at each bootcamp will receive a ticket into a draw and the winner will receive a gift basket consisting of the items and gift certificates purchased with one-half of the donations.
Yesterday I had the pleasure of shooting some BTS footage of their Run JMC Bootcamp in St. Albert. It was so great getting to see many of the familiar faces that we see in the studio on a regular basis and watching them get their sweat on. Enjoy this quick time-lapse video and action photos to get an idea of what you can expect if you decide to come out and join them.
