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.
