“One word: Fight. Anyone can do it when it feels good, but when you’re hurting, that’s when it makes a difference, so you have to keep fighting.”
I have been a certified personal trainer for over 12 years. I have met, worked with and worked out with a countless number of people of various journeys. I, as many I suspect, always root for the underdog. I am always motivated by and inspired by the individual who has been knocked down by life and/or injury. The struggle is what builds our character, the adversity is what builds our “muscle”. The fight is what makes us strong.
I recently had the pure pleasure of photographing Erika on 2 different days over 4 locations.
The last photo was inspired by her inspiration, Christmas Abbott. We shot it early in the morning on a bit of a whim, in less than 3 minutes, in front of a dumpster near a place of business receiving a delivery from a famous soda company, needless to say, the world almost lost a Pepsi delivery man due to some whip leash and disbelief.
Never stop form arising from a fall of any kind. Injuries heal, life goes on and the fight is worth it. One word:Fight.
