Michelle Bridges 12WBT0September 1st, 2011Event
I’ve been photographing a lot of diverse work in the past few months. Band portraits, live music, weddings and all sorts of events. One event that I covered two weeks ago was the finale of one of the Michelle Bridges 12 Week Body Transformation session. The finale invited all participants (some 800 women and men) to train in a group workout session followed by a celebratory dinner at the Mariott.
Just keeping up with all the different groups was hard work, I pitied and at the same time admired the fitness of some of these women (and the determination of all).
The one thing that stood out about these sessions was the push to get everyone chatting and the camaraderie between friends and strangers. Michelle (or Mish as she was referred to…obviously I am not a huge Biggest Loser watcher. I presume this is her nickname on the show) encouraged everyone to talk to the stranger next to them. Everyone was excited to be there and some were able to even share their stories with Michelle on the day (tears flew, hugs were given).Tags: 12 wbt, 12 week body transformation, 12wbt, australia, biggest loser, final, finale, group training, michelle bridges, session, sport, training
