A Few Fitness Photo Shoot Tips

Welcome to Act-Fit Fridays!  If you follow me on Facebook, this may not be news to you.  I had the pleasure of getting a quick fitness photo shoot in with my cousin of Matt Odom Photography a couple of weeks ago & I wanted to share a small piece of it with you!  Btw, if you missed my post Wednesday “Proven Productivity Strategies for Bloggers on Facebook“, go back and check it out.  Matthew is not a blogger but his Facebook fanpage is off the chain!

Save Your Do with the Save Your Do Gymwrap

One of my first post was about the ongoing issue of African American women dealing with hair maintenance and exercise.  The article proved to be most helpful with all of your comments and suggestions that you all use on a daily basis.

I have been wearing the Save Your Do Gymwrap for almost a year now.  I support the purchase of the product and stand behind it 100%.  You can purchase one here.  I wanted to do a post to elaborate on what is so special about this gymwrap as opposed to the scarf, mesh cap, or other savior you might be using currently.  Below is a before and after picture of my hair from a typical day at the gym.  I will walk you through my process with pictures so you can visually see the effect of using this product.

PPP: You Think You Know SQUAT

PHIT PHOTO PHRIDAY is here! I see so many people doing SQUATS incorrectly and no matter how many times I cue it, sometimes people are just on autopilot; about to tip over, hands in the wrong place, half sinking down etc.  By nature we like what we like.  Some people like instruction and others like visual.  Honestly, some people are just trying to make it through the squat track without passing out, lol.  Either way, enjoy the visuals.  I hope they serve as reminders to some and enlightenment for others to execute the move correctly and get the most benefit out of your time in your class or on the floor.

Thanks to Andrea’s blog for the heads up! I’m dressed appropriately in the pictures for National Wear Red Day and the fight against heart disease.
