Charlotte Miles  is setting up Editors Bootcamp to combat some of the physical problems associated with sitting in an edit suite all day....

“It got to the end of the day and as I stood to leave the edit suite, I realised just how sore my body was. My shoulders were tense from being hunched over the keyboard all day; my knees sore from being bent up under the desk and I felt a lethargy” - Charlotte Miles
Sound familiar?   Blueberry editor Charlotte Miles has been training as a personal trainer and been inspired to bring together her two passions: editing and physical training for strength and well being.  

It will be a space to de-compress and re-align the body, alongside fellow creatives who understand the pressures of working in the post industry. To register your interest in The Editors Bootcamp, please complete this very quick survey, so Charlotte can tailor the sessions specifically for your needs;
