WE DID IT! WE MADE IT THROUGH THE WEEKEND AND THE CHIEFS WON AND THE ROYALS WON AND OMG THERE IS SO MUCH EXCITEMENT GOING ON!
But back to focusing solely on Sprots Takes… WE ARE OFFICIALLY DONE WITH OUR PHOTO SHOOTS! PRAISE BABY TEBOW!
I’ll stop yelling now, but really this is a great day for all of us.
Friday, August 14th:
Today Shlee & GAT discovered that while nature might look great in photo backdrops, nature is a real pain in the ass to deal with in person. Also, we learned that GAT went to summer camp and hiked around in nature and all that for weeks at a time and Shlee really really liked reading books instead. These are good things to know when in your late twenties and both of you are screaming because you saw a giant spider and possibly walked through poison ivy.
Spiders or nah, GAT was laying down in the grass taking selfies while who knows what was climbing in her hair and up her shorts. Clearly terrified, she was busy snapchatting the entire event and Shlee captured some great candids in the mix of it all! While they were out in nature capturing some head shots and photos for the upcoming SprotsTakes.com rebirth/launch of football season, our faithful and gorgeous marketing rep from Denver was landing in Kansas City for her closeup!
Needless to say, Joy ROCKED her shoot and we are looking forward to sharing the final photos with you in the calendar coming out in September!
If you ever wondered what Jessica Rabbit would look like in Chiefs colors… congrats! Now you know! Not only did Joy rock the red & gold like a champ, but like the rest of the ladies featured in this calendar, she is a complete bad ass. The hair and makeup and goofing off behind the scenes has been absolutely fantastic and we have enjoyed every minute of it. However, the reason all of us are doing this project is to raise money for the Rose Brooks Center, a place where domestic violence victims and their children (and pets!) have a safe haven from their abusers. Not only do they provide a way to escape for these women, they also help break the cycle of domestic violence. Joy has been an advocate for women’s rights and speaks about her own domestic violence situation as well as other trials and tribulations she has been through to help other victims. We will have Joy’s story posted on the website soon to give you more of a background on her amazing journey.
Sunday, August 16th:
We ventured over to Prairie Life Fitness to hang with our favorite trainer, Sarah Gronborg. While Sarah is the trainer responsible for kicking GAT’s ass every week, she also represents the female empowerment that Sprots Takes loves! Did you all know that Zubaz and GAT were both created in 1988? Seriously, what a lethal combination! Since Zubaz were originally created for weightlifting, what better way to start off the calendar than with the seriously bad ass Sarah rocking some K-State purple Zubaz!
While Sarah didn’t exactly love the hair and makeup process, she looked AMAZING while rocking the Zubaz leggings that will be out in full swing for all of you ladies that want something besides the baggy pants option! The best part of these shoots are always the behind the scenes where we laugh and make ridiculous jokes that are usually too inappropriate to share.
Sarah has a passion for helping others achieve their fitness goals and does it with some serious swagger. Known for her love of K-State and all things purple, Sarah had a weightlifting belt customized in a radiant shade of purple and it is her signature piece around the gym. GAT met Sarah in 2014 and has been working with (or being slowly tortured by her) for a year now. Sarah has a knack for bringing out the fierce in everyone and will make you laugh as your fat cries, which is no easy feat!
Whether you’ve never lift a weight in your life or you’ve been working out for years and need to be pushed further… Sarah can help you reach your goals!
For more information on training with Sarah, reach out via email to schedule a session or a consultation!
So now that our shoots are done, editing and finalizing the calendar process starts NOW! We will be selling these calendars online as well as in person at our events and different places we will be! Stay tuned and be sure to check out our current giveaway going on RIGHT NOW!
