Butt-kicking at U of A courtesy Tommy Europe

- October 8th, 2011

Round 2 of Tommy Europe’s Shred Bootcamp was bigger, better … and tougher.

More than 110 fitness enthusiasists — mostly women — got their butts kicked last Sunday at the University of Alberta in Edmonton.

Here’s a look back at all the sweaty fun:

Tommy Europe also generously made some time to kick my butt one more time — in a post-bootcamp posedown!

The muscular ex-CFLer, who lives in Vancouver, promises to return to Edmonton next year for Round 3 of his Shred Bootcamp — most likely in the spring. Stay tuned to this blog in the coming months for more details and another chance to win tickets.
