Congratulations Miss January!
We are proud to announce Ann as our Featured Bootique Client!
I remember meeting Ann when we had our first ‘girl talk’ session. I loved that she was positive, eager and excited about her new fitness schedule. I loved hearing that she looked forward to each next class. Then a bit of sadness kicked in as she shared with me (and expressed down below) that she didn’t really think she could lose the weight and feel fit.
We talked through this a lot… Cut to a fantastic Facebook post she wrote:
To say that I am so proud of her accomplishment is an understatement. It is an absolute joy to see her shine!
What would you like people to know about you?
I am from Canada, born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta and went to Collage in Toronto, Ontario which is where I met my husband. We moved to San Diego in 2009. We have 2 Chihuahuas, Nuna & Cali. I work in Human Resources for a Medical Device company in San Diego.
What are your hobbies/interests outside of our classes?
I love to travel!
Tell us an interesting or unusual fact about yourself.
I am a huge nerd and love all things Star Wars, Harry Potter, etc.
Wanna share a guilty pleasure?
How long have you been training with Bootique Fitness?
What was your life like before Bootique Fitness? How is that different now that you train with Bootique?
Before Bootique, my life was very lazy. I would make excuses to not cook at home and the word “exercise” was not in my vocabulary. Over recent years, I stated to gain a significant amount of weight. I started to hate the way I looked and was embarrassed but did not know how to change. I was too intimated and overwhelmed to try. One day this past summer, it really hit me just how unhappy I was with how I looked and felt about myself and I was done. I was done with being embarrassed and uncomfortable and I decided to change! My life after Bootique is much more fun! I have energy to go for walks and hikes with my husband and my friends, I feel more comfortable in my own skin and I am so proud of the progress I have made. I can see the difference in my endurance and my abilities as the months go by. My cloths fit better (some are too big now!) and I have more energy than I have had for years. I look forward to my training classes – it is a great way to burn off stress and it is so rewarding.
What results have you seen since coming to Bootique Fitness? How do your results make you feel?
Since joining Bootique in August 2018 I have lost 43 pounds! I started with the 14 day fat flush diet which really helped me to kick start my weight loss and to learn how certain foods effected me. I made changes to my diet and eating habits and have never felt better.
Tell me about your experience with the trainers.
Sabrina is amazing. She has guided and encouraged me this entire time. She is patient but at the same time pushes me to be better, and has helped to build my confidence. Ali is amazing as well and I really enjoy her yoga classes. She makes yoga relaxing but also a challenging workout.
What is your favorite/least favorite exercise?
Most favorite are thigh masters, least favorite are burpees – they are the worst lol
What do you enjoy the most about Bootique Fitness?
It gives me something to be proud of and something to look forward to! The sense of community and support is amazing.
What would you say to someone on the fence about making a change & committing to their goals?
Just do it! You will surprise yourself. With so many classes available, and at different times it does not impact your schedule much at all and its so worth it!
Is there anything else you would like to add?
I honestly did not think I would get the results that I have. I was so certain I would fail and it scared me so much. Bootique has taught me that it is possible and that I am not alone. They are my cheerleaders and I am so grateful.
