Congratulations Miss March!
We are proud to announce Elizabeth as our Featured Bootique Client!
We love Elizabeth. She embraces life and finds the positive in everything… even burpees :)! It is such a wonderful experience as a trainer to watch someone start training and feeling unsure of herself – and then see her blossom into a shining, inspirational beacon of light! The ladies of Civita are lucky to have such positive energy surround them!
Ro adds: “It’s incredible to see how much stronger and confident Liz is now than when she first came to us. I’m not sure she could hold a plank for 20 secs and now her core can keep her up for minutes 😉 Plus, she’s so very thoughtful and loves her 6am girls like her family.”
What would you like people to know about you?
Where do I begin? But I absolutely love to cook for family and friends! No matter what’s going on in the world, there’s something magical and “healing” about coming together for good food and conversation. And doesn’t have to be “fancy” either. My not-so-secret ingredients in all dishes: love of sharing and plenty of gratitude for keeping me company.
Tell us an interesting or unusual fact about yourself.
I just love to sing and always have songs playing in my head. What’s so interesting about that? It’s that I’m not very good at it but that doesn’t stop me from doing it. And what others find “interesting” about me? When I share that I do boot camp with Bootique! Somehow they don’t see me doing squats, the “dreaded” burpees, etc. I love it that they think this is “funny” about me—that I have a “secret” life.
How about sharing one of your guilty pleasure?
I could watch Marvel movies 24/7! The plots are basically always the same: The entire universe is at stake and no matter what—the superheroes save the day. I love it when the good guys (and girls!) win—and there’s always a lesson to learn about life!
How long have you been training with Bootique Fitness?
Pretty sure it will be 3 years this October—I think. One of the best decisions I’ve ever made it my life!
What was your life like before Bootique Fitness? How is that different now that you train with Bootique?
Before? Life has always been good to me. But that same life has always had plenty of stress. I’m the one always too busy taking care of others and forgetting about myself—and I was starting to show it. I needed help — sometimes I felt “lost”. Needed a change to balance things out!
What results have you seen since coming to Bootique Fitness? How do your results make you feel?
Life changing! Have lost 2 dress sizes, have more energy than ever. I feel STRONG. But that’s just the “physical” stuff. I love the Bootique “community!” It’s the best definition of “unconditional love”. When I first got started I thought: no one here looks like me, everyone is in much better shape than me and I’m not so sure I will fit in. Today: we’re all “sisters” cheering each other on. And these days, I find myself welcoming and encouraging our new teammates! It’s come “full circle”.
Tell me about your experience with the trainers.
Love all the trainers — each with her own personality. All with expertise, passion for what they do, AND compassion — I’ve needed it more times than I can count!
What are your favorite/least favorite exercises?
Favorite: anything that looks like a lunge. Also love to run and the stretching! Least: the “dreaded burpees” of course!
What do you enjoy the most about Bootique Fitness?
Jaylin, Sabrina, Ro. All expert trainers — and they’re FUN! Also: my Mission Valley Civita Sisters. We are truly a “community”. We all look after one another. We are beauty and strength!
What would you say to someone on the fence about making a change & committing to their goals?
Try it! It will change your life — I promise. Do it for your health — physical and mental.
Best of all: it’s OK to start slow — Bootique is the one place that is safe and there are really “no wrong answers.” We inspire one another! If you know of anyone on the fence — send them to me!
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Secret fantasy: to learn how to dance like Jaylin! Have to get back to dance class. AND: Thank you… Thank you… Thank you!
(… you’re too cute 🙂 – Jaylin)
