When was last time you expressed genuine gratitude? Emails and text messages are ok, but there’s something about receiving a physical hand written Thank You Card. And when the card art was designed by a special group of people and gives back to a community in need, the gesture is that much better. Scott Colby is giving you a great reason to give a thank you card, while building schools for children in great need.

My name is Scott Colby and I’m the creator of Fit For Photos, where we help real men and women look hot for a professional photo shoot.

Say it with gratitudeI’ve worked with literally hundreds of people both personally as one-on-one clients and in my Women’s Only Bootcamps that I used to run in Dallas, Texas. And that doesn’t even include the thousands of men and women I’ve consulted with and helped in my online businesses, my teleseminars, and my other products. I’m an internationally known fitness professional, speaker and author.

Back in January of 2012, I set a new goal for myself – to be the best shape of my life at age 40 and to look as hot as I could for a professional photo shoot. After a few conversations with my friend and awesome photographer, Stacy Nish, I decided to do a photo shoot with me on April 7, 2012. You can see one of the pictures from that shoot to the right.

So I put together a really intense workout routine and nutrition plan and away I went. It was a really challenging program but I’m always up for a good challenge. Read More
