Yesterday was a different kind of photo-op. It took place in a location that I personally need to quit shying away from......the gym.
I have a few of "those" friends whom I tend to view with a touch of envy (in a healthy, admirable way). They are friends dedicated and disciplined to living a healthy lifestyle in all arenas of their lives and happen to like that whole gym vibe.
Meet Sarah. Sarah is the author of two successful health / fitness blogs, The Fit Cookie and Fit Betty. I borrowed a portion of her ABOUT ME section right off of the blog: "I am a wife, mom of 2,, ACSM Certified Personal Trainer, Zumba Instructor, PiYo instructor, healthy food blogger (The Fit Cookie), a FitFluential and Sweat Pink Ambassador! I love fitness and nutrition and my goal is to help people reach their health and fitness goals while having fun! I enjoy rock climbing, Zumba, weight lifting, running, plyometrics, power lifting, occasionally CrossFit, and any new exercises I can get my hands on. I am a bit of a ‘fraidy cat and an introvert, so I have to constantly nudge myself to step out of my comfort zone on a regular basis. Uncomfortable yes, but definitely worth it!"
Sarah was such a great sport yesterday. For over an hour she worked out in various capacities just so I could catch her in action. And even though she says she has to push herself out of her comfort zone, she never acted awkward while I was taking her pictures. In fact, she was so focused that at one point I was lying on the floor with my camera right in her face and she never broke her concentration. This girl is intense when she works out.
