What would you like people to know about you?

I grew up in Texas and moved to California 5 years ago for my husbands job. I have grown to love California, I mean who wouldn’t when you live so close to the beach. But at the end of the day, I am truly a Texas Girl!! Anyone who knows me, knows I am a total girly girl, I love pink, and going to the spa, I absolutely love shoes and shopping…Well, like I said, totally girly girl. I have two teenage boys who are a HANDFUL and drive me crazy, but I couldn’t image my life without them. I also love, love my job!! I am a Regional Educator for a property management company and couldn’t imagine doing anything different.

Tell us an interesting or unusual fact about yourself.

Although, I am only in early 40’s, I do have a 5 year old granddaughter…. I have a 26 year old daughter, well actually she is my step daughter, but I have been in her life since she was 3, so I think of her as mine.

Wanna share a guilty pleasure?

I am afraid to admit this, but Candy Crushers is my guilty pleasure. I am obsessed!!

How long have you been training with Bootique Fitness?

9 months

What was your life like before Bootique Fitness? How is that different now that you train with Bootique?

I have always been naturally thin and able to eat whatever I wanted, that was before I hit 40. Seriously, the day I hit 40, it was like my metabolism said “see ya”. I tried being more disciplined with what I ate, but bad habits are hard to break. Finally, one day I stepped on the scale and broke down when I saw how much I weighed. I knew I had put on weight because my clothes no longer fit, but I was mortified at the number on the scale, that was when I knew something had to change.

Joining Bootique was the best decision I ever made! I have learned to eat healthier and watch my portions. This now comes easy to me because who wants to put anything bad in their body after an amazing workout and especially after you start seeing the results of your hard work.

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

Since coming to Bootique, I have lost almost 20 pounds. My legs and arms have definition and I feel myself getting stronger every day. I feel healthier and am more confident in the way I look.

Tell me about your experience with the trainers.

All the trainers are amazing!! The classes are always fun, the trainers are always motivating and always make me feel totally comfortable!!!

What is your favorite/least favorite exercises?

My favorite exercise is dance and my least favorite is burpees!!

What do you enjoy the most about Bootique Fitness?

I love that Bootique really feels like a family. There is no judgement and everyone truly cares about you and helping you meet your fitness goals. My favorite is the accountability part. If I don’t make it to class, you can bet that Jaylin or my accountability partner, Debbi Winns is going to come looking for answers as to why I didn’t make it to class!!

What would you say to someone on the fence about making a change & committing to their goals?

If you are wanting to make a change to be healthier, look and feel better all while having fun, then Bootique is the place for you. Trust me when I say, you will not be disappointed!!
