During their years spent working as fitness trainers, Drew and Shazi Edmonds have trained clients from all walks of life—from busy moms to brawny athletes to reality-TV star Ruby Gettinger. They bring their passion for fitness and years of experience to Train Me 24/7, where they guide clients toward slimmer and stronger selves through one-on-one and small-group training sessions. Drew and Shazi also conduct boot-camp classes, leading students through high-intensity workouts of strength, cardio, and core-training exercises.
The Fitness Club’s 24-hour access card unlocks the gym floor at any hour, allowing patrons to work out regardless of a tight or nontraditional schedule. The sprawling space houses elliptical trainers, treadmills, and recumbent bikes, as well as Nautilus weight-training machinery and free weights. During staffed hours, exercisers can enlist in personal training or a group fitness session in such disciplines as yoga, Zumba, or silver class, a workout tailored to seniors. Afterward, they can head to the locker rooms, which house showers, or diffuse muscular tension amid the club’s dry sauna.
The six women who perform hair, makeup, and wardrobe styling for FashionShots are truly an elite team: among them, their work has been featured in Vogue, on E!, at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, and in Modern Salon magazine. Their impressive skill enables them to work on a variety of projects, from senior photos and boudoir shoots to headshots for aspiring models and commercial work.
Whatever the project, the complete hair-makeup-and-wardrobe experience is designed to make each client feel like a model for a day. Subjects will prep for their shoot by reviewing a Mood Board, an email from the photographer with suggestions for outfits, hair styles, and makeup. The day of, clients bring in 3-5 complete outfits, and will then be coached through the shoot by a photographer who is also a former model. Afterward, subjects will go through the images with the photographer, selecting their favorites for complete retouching and printing.
