Congratulations Allison!

We are proud to announce Allison as our Featured Boot Camp Client!

I remember the day I first met Allison. We met for ‘coffee talk’ to discuss her goals. She asked me what she needed to do. I said (in a few more words than this…) exercise consistently, eat well and find reasons to feel good — AND SHE DID! Allison, who is affectionately known as Trex amongst her closest boot camp friends,jumped right into a new healthy lifestyle and she manages to keep it up regardless of how many challenges her work throws at her.

She took our boot camp and Zumba classes by storm and she has rocked them both! She’s taken it upon herself to learn to run and uses the Zombie couch to 5K app to let ‘being chased by the zombs’ motivate her! She is truly an inspiration to our ladies!

Allison and I share another very special bond. We were both born on February 14th – the day of love… and hearts and red and PINK! Well… as a Valentine-baby, you can probably imagine we’ve had more than our share of hearts and red and pink-related Valentines. This year, we celebrated together with a no-pink, no-red, no-hearts Zumba party. It was a very fun evening!

This adventurous girl also chose to go on our Bootique zip-lining trip where she did a burpee while we waited our turn – just for the fun of it. (See her burpee video). It brings me so much joy to see someone take back their life the way Allison has. I’m incredibly proud!

What would you like people to know about you?

I’m an event planner for large festivals, which means I keep a crazy work schedule and have a tendency to run myself ragged. I’m fortunate to be married to the most wonderful guy on earth, and I have two dogs that make me smile. I work in Balboa Park, which means every day I get to go to the most beautiful place in San Diego.

Allison’s Experience with Bootique Fitness

Allison talks about how she came to work out with us and what her experience has been like in our San Diego boot camp.

You are celebrating your 1 year anniversary with Bootique Fitness! What’s that like?

I can’t believe that it’s already been a year! It seems like yesterday I was walking into my first boot camp, scared and tragically out of shape. I look at pictures of that girl (see below), and can’t even believe it was me.

It feels wonderful that I’ve made a commitment to myself, and that I am sticking to it.

What was your life like before Bootique Fitness?

Before joining Bootique, my health was the last thing on my list of priorities – and that’s if it made it on the list at all. I was in complete denial about what the extra weight, bad eating, no exercise, and high stress was doing to me. I had an eye opening experience when I struggled to go up a few flights of stairs, and I realized I couldn’t keep living that way.

What results have you seen since coming to Bootique Fitness? How do your results make you feel?

The results have been amazing! I have lost 50 pounds and gained so much confidence. I think the change in my personality is much bigger than the weight loss!

What is the biggest difference in your life since you started Bootique Fitness?

The biggest difference is that I’m excited to try new things and take on new challenges. I look forward to not only my workouts, but also being active in general.

I’m happy, which isn’t something I could say a year ago!

Tell me about your experience with the trainers.

I love the trainers!

Jaylin has been there for me every step of the way. A few months ago when my life went a little off track, she was the first one there to encourage me to get back to my workouts – reminding me of how much stability they bring to my life. Her encouragement has made a huge difference in my success, and I’m very grateful.

What do you enjoy the most about Bootique Fitness?

Beyond the physical challenges and the results, I love the gang. It’s all about that group of women who I get to see every workout. They are there to share a pre-workout story and a post-workout plate of eggs. They have cheered me on and been there to lift my spirits.

I also love the setting. Being able to exercise outside is fantastic!

Why should other women just like you consider Bootique Fitness as their solution?

Because it works! When I look at the women around me, every single one of them is getting out of the program exactly what they’ve put into it. And, since Jaylin encourages us all to put in our best, I’ve seen some amazing transformations!

Is there anything else you would like to add?

I love my Bootique family!

Thank you Miss Allison! We love training you!

Be sure to congratulate and celebrate Allison when you see her at boot camp! She plays at the 7:15 Hillcrest boot camps and Zumba classes.
