How Fitness Expert Derek William’s Unorthodox Training Style Promotes Longevity Over Popularity




These days, in the fitness world, when describing the latest workout fads usually, they usually aren’t accompanied by words like longevity, strength and flexibility. But for leading fitness expert Derek Williams, his proven fitness philosophy demonstrates value far beyond instant gratification.

Growing up as an athlete, Williams had constantly been surrounded by fitness. But it wouldn’t be until later in life that he discovered the importance of health and its relationship with his fitness journey. It was no longer about achieving a perfect workout, but instead about how his training could be enhanced by implementing principles of health and science. Today his training and health philosophy is focused on what Derek calls “Strength through Length,” a style that promotes developing strength and power in the furthest range of motion, allowing for full maximum output of these muscles creating true force.

As part of Florida-based ATG (Athletic Truth Group), Williams is able to share his wealth of knowledge with members of the first of its kind online gym membership program. While his style of training helps people achieve their fitness goals, many clients are often athletes seeking rehabilitation through his unconventional philosophy. Williams employs exercises that are completely unprecedented, and yet simple and therefore logical. The style of training allows people to move and exercise as nature intends, bringing the body back into balance and then incorporating weights and flexibility to generate power and force. In light of this, athletes and civilians alike have been able to utilize Williams’ style of training to not only overcome previous injury but to come back better than ever. 

“Many old and young athletes come to us broken down and end up pain free and more athletic than ever,” Williams says.

And while he waits for the rest of the world to catch up with his groundbreaking style of training, Williams continues to break the barriers of fitness sharing all that he can, whether with his clientele at ATG or even through his own personal brand, Mr. 1nf1n1ty. Promoting strength, flexibility, and longevity, Williams remains determined to encourage fitness enthusiasts with his best-kept-secret-like training.

Kristi Ronning, Beautifully Portraying ‘Love, Knows No Bounds’




If your concept of eloping includes sneaking away at night, or heading to your dream place, think again. Small, highly mobile weddings have grown by leaps and bounds over the past five years. Fueled by mind-blowing posts on Pinterest, Instagram, and beyond, a growing number of young couples are trading in churches and banquet halls. 

With the pandemic disrupting thousands of weddings, the shift to small elopements is growing faster. An elopement containing just the couple and a few guests is comparatively safer and a far less stressful way for marriage than calling relatives, friends and many other guests.

In order to provide you with ethereal and magical photography for your wedding, Kristi Ronning founded Opal and Ox. Ronning is an American Elopement photographer, recognized for her mountain-top portraits. In addition, she features breathtaking landscapes with an aesthetic sense. 

Born on July 30, 1991, and raised in Pine Island, Minnesota, Ronning is the youngest of her siblings. She was born to Kathy Shafer and Jeff Ronning. From a very young age, she loved capturing photographs of her surroundings. As a kid, she loved dancing and taking theater classes. When Ronning entered second grade, her mother was thoughtful enough to gift her a disposable camera, which quickly turned into a digital one. From that point onwards, she has never put her camera down. Her passion drove her to become a professional photographer at the age of nineteen. 

After getting married to her husband, Ralphie, the two opened a photography and videography service-providing company named Opal and Ox. The couple has been quite successful in covering weddings worldwide since 2012. 

She has kept Opal & Ox services very admirable. According to her, life is all about exploring new adventures, this is what she, along with her husband, has been doing, and the reason for creating Opal & Ox is to lend their support to those who want to discover their love in an aesthetic style. Furthermore, the couple strongly believes that photography and videography flow together perfectly. This is why Ronning has been capturing emotions, energy, joys, and memories through the lens of her camera. 

She firmly thinks that whether it’s weddings and elopements, family photo sessions, senior portraits, or newborn photos, she knows how to capture the moments. Opal & Ox has been telling stories together through film and photos since almost 15 years. The journey has been quite memorable and displays Ronning’s love for photography in a nutshell. 

In her early years of photography, she covered conventional weddings. Upon moving to Montana, she began pioneering the mountain-top elopement wedding style that has been made famous by social media platforms. 

Ronning loves to incorporate fun fashion pieces into natural landscapes. Being completely self-taught, she quickly became one of the most prominent elopement photographers in the world. Now, people all across the world admire her work. However, she is best known for climbing mountain peaks with couples and documenting their marriage at an elevation of over 10,000 feet. Currently living in Montana, she shoots on a Hasselblad 907x medium format digital camera.

In 2020, Ronning was featured on the cover of Montana bride magazine, volumes 18 & 19, for capturing an epic three days shoot in the mountains. The magazine did a 9-page spread about the 3-day overnight hike in the mountains outside Yellowstone National Park. 

Ronning’s future endeavors include launching her first photography book and filming a documentary following her life and career in the mountains. Her determination made her capable enough that in 2022, she was featured in Rocky Mountain Bride magazine. Being a woman, she has never given up on her dreams. Her continuous efforts and life-long achievements can be a true inspiration for all young female photographers out there.
