      How did you become a personal trainer in San Diego?
      I met Jaylin in 2011 – I had quit my sales job at a Fortune 500 company on a random Wednesday at 10am. I had just had…enough! In my time off I became a certified personal trainer and landed upon Jaylin’s job posting. Her red hair and smile were inviting. She became my mentor and friend and I’ve been with her since. I’ve worked at other gyms and camps but Bootique is my favorite. The camaraderie among the women is awesome! My goal is to make every class fun – to have as little monotony as possible. It’s tricky though, it really makes me visualize the program I’m creating, from start to finish. If I get excited about what I’ve created for the girls then I feel I’ve done a good job. I know I’ve been successful when I hear “we’re done already?!” or “that was fun!” I’m passionate about making fitness fun for others, so that they realize it can be done with friends/family, and often. It doesn’t have to be something you dread! The more you like it, the more you will do it.

      Who is your hero? And why?
      My Mom. My Dad passed unexpectedly when I was 15 and my sister was 11. My mom filled the shoes of both parents. I can’t imagine going through what she did.

      What’s the most unusual place you have visited?
      Debre Libanos – a monastery in Ethiopia founded in the 13th century. It was the Ethiopian Christmas holiday. We hiked straight up the side of a mountain where men and women were taking cleansing showers at the top before entering a holy cave where historical beliefs state a Saint meditated for 29 years. We were then invited into the simple home of a very kind religious leader. He spoke only his native language but shared bread and drink with us and even took photos with us. It was such a unique and eye opening experience. Everyone stared as us white foreigners. My friend who spoke the native language overheard one person say “Geez it’s not like they are monkeys, everyone should stop staring.”

            Jaylin’s Story

            Growing up, I was never good at traditional sports or gym class, but I knew I wanted to be active. I started exercising to home videos in high school – but that was boring. When I went to college, I decided to join a gym. At the time, I was very shy, unsure of myself, and had no idea what to do in the gym; it was intimidating to say the least. I began to take fitness classes and my favorite instructor Julie (who was also a personal trainer) inspired me to become a fitness instructor! I don’t know how she talked me into it, but I am so appreciative that she did.

            Though I was still shy outside of the studio, when I taught fitness class, I came alive. Suddenly, people were counting on ME to make THEM feel better, get stronger and healthier – and I thrived on the energy (just come to my Dance Fitness Party class and see it in person!).

            Within three short months of getting certified, I was teaching nine classes a week. The joy you see in someone’s eyes when they tell you what an impact you’ve had on their lives… inexplicable, and I loved it! After graduating with a degree in Business, I started my career in the corporate world; and after a few years, I was too busy at work to teach fitness classes. I enjoyed being a business woman, but I missed being in the fitness world. I always thought I would be wearing power suits to work in fancy offices, but I changed back into my workout gear and made the best career change of my life!

            “I started Bootique Fitness because I found great joy in helping others to feel good about themselves through fitness and a healthy lifestyle and I believed in my ability to create a company and a team that had something special to offer.”

            Our Philosophy

Everyone needs to start somewhere. At Bootique Fitness we aim to improve your health, increase your energy levels, release your stress and make sure that you feel good all around.

            Feeling good is sexy. When you feel confident and strong, you are more likely to maintain your new efforts. We know that everybody wants to look better, shed some pounds, tone this or that… We would rather make the road to get there a sunny and fun one. Join us now, not because you have to, but because you want to.

            All of our fitness programs are tailored to you. From private and semi-private sessions to our popular outdoor programs, we offer you freedom of space, natural surroundings and the feeling of play rather than work… the way you felt when you were a kid. Designed with a social fitness component in mind, we offer you a great way to find the support of a team-like group while still maintaining your individuality as a high priority.

            We believe in high intensity programs and tracking noticeable results for you while having fun in the company of other like-minded people. We choose to inspire change and progress within you by offering you the right trainer, the right space and total support.
