I know I’ve been totally off-line lately, but don’t worry – my move is all done now, so I’m back on track!
Amongst all this moving excitement, I totes forgot to tell you how I starred in a photo shoot for the upcoming New York Health and Racquet Club fall campaign! So this is how it all went down:
Tuesday morning at the gym, chatting to Josh the gym manager:
Me: Hey. What’s going on over on that side of the gym?
Josh: Oh. They’re shooting the upcoming fall NYHRC campaign.
Me: WHAT? Why am I not in it? I’m here EVERYDAY!
Josh: It’s not up to me. Go ask the owner.
Me: Oh I will.
Being the very modest girl that I am, I walk off and start working out. Out of the corner of my eye, I see Josh chatting to a lady. They come over and she is introduced as the owner of the building, and the one in charge of the shoot.
Me: So. I’m cute. Why aren’t I in the shoot?
Lady: You ARE cute. Let me see if we can fit you in.
And that, is how you get yourself in a NYHRC photo shoot people. A little self promotion never hurts anyone. Unless you are unattractive or fat – then, it is unfeasible to think you’ll be the face of a gym.
Cut to shoot on Wednesday morning. I rock up in my cutest pink gym top and tiny shorts combo and rock it out. Afterwards, Eric the creative manager asks me a few questions to feature on my profile in the brochure.
Eric: So Julie – why do you work out? Is it to attain a goal?
Me: Well of course. To stay un-fat.
Eric: That’s your goal?
Me: Yes. Being un-fat is very important to me.
Eric: Right, right…is there any event that you are working towards? You know, like a 3 mile run?
Me: A 3 mile run? I can do that in half an hour on a treadmill?! Sigh…I guess I could say that I want to run a marathon one day?
Eric: A marathon! That’s great! Like the New York marathon?
Me: Yeah? Sure, that one. Even though running bores me. And I’m not like training for it or anything.
Eric: Ah…okay. I’m just going to write down training for New York marathon.
Eric: Now, tell me about your training schedule.
Me: Mondays I spin, Tuesdays I do strength training and spin, Wednesdays I do Kangoo and strength training, Thursdays I do strength and cardio, Fridays I do bootcamp and abs, Saturdays I spin. Sundays I’m hungover.
Eric: Great, great. Now one last question. What do you aspire to be?
Me: Oh that’s easy. I aspire to be the best Trophy Wife I can be.
Eric: Haha. That’s funny!
Me: No. I’m serious. I’m a Trophy Wife and I aspire to be really great at it.
Eric: Oh. That’s great! Okay Julie, we’re all done here!
I’m pretty sure my profile is not going to end up in that NYHRC brochure.
