BoSFIT — or Balls of Steel Fitness — is revolutionary fitness created by personal trainer and fitness instructor Bradford Shreve.
We wanted the site to be sexy and edgy with a sense of humor, not unlike Bradford and his team, so I came up with a series of taglines including, “Sexy is a Side Effect” and “Some Swelling is Normal.”
I also created a custom theme from scratch for BoSFIT. It’s very common for a developer to look for an existing theme which meets the basic idea he or she has created, then customize that for the client. In fact, it’s what I often do. In this case, though, I didn’t find anything that felt right and had the functionality we needed, so it was more efficient to build it from the ground up (using WordPress’s “starter theme,” Underscores).
The message: you will work hard, you’ll have fun and you’ll look better.
The site you see today is Phase I of a site that will grow to include an online registration system and a host of other cool features to engage Bradford’s audience in a deeper, more exciting way. More to come!
