Shelly & Lee|Minneapolis Engagement Photographer
“The mind is the limit. As long as the mind can envision the fact that you can do something, you can do it, as long as you really believe 100 percent”.-Arnold Schwarzenegger
I met Shelly last year when I started working out with her group “Girls with Guns”. I was getting bored with my workouts and wanted to do something different. Shelly and Lee are both trainers at Lifetime Fitness
and they are both competitive body builders. It is an incredibly disciplined way to work out and eat. I have been following the nutrition and workouts for the past month (but I am not going to compete). I committed to 30 days and have a calendar on my refrigerator to mark off the days. Shelly and Lee are both completely dedicated to this way of life and to each other. They light up when they look at each other!
These photos were taken the day after the Northstar
show so both of them are in their very best shape. Lee came in 2nd in the light heavyweights and Shelly came in 6th in masters, 7th in figure. They are both very driven trainers. They love to work out together and to help other people reach their goals. Lee is getting ready to compete again next month at the Gopher State
and is being sponsored by Complete Nutrition
(which is great because I get the Lee Richards discount). It’s been really fun to get to know both of them and to learn all sorts of new torturous exercises from Shelly!
