Congratulations Miss September!
We are proud to announce Natalie as our Featured Bootique Client!
Natalie approached me after a stairs class one Monday night just before we were starting our Little Black Dress program. I loved how eager she was to be a part of Bootique – especially since she had already witnessed a class so she knew what we were about.
She quickly dove right in to the boot camps and dance classes – especially since she was getting married in just a couple of months. She pushes herself already but will also take the encouragement to go a little deeper, a little more – which I appreciate. What I love most is that she’s quick to respond with something positive for everything I throw at her in class. This makes me the happiest!
What would you like people to know about you?
I’m extremely multicultural! I am German/Filipino and I have lived in 6 different countries prior to moving to the USA. I was born in Hong Kong; grew up in Spain, Germany and the UK; and decided to expand my career experience in Thailand and the Philippines. Getting a second degree in business and my now husband are the main reasons for settling in the USA.
What are your hobbies/interests outside of our classes?
I love to travel and explore different places! Our next vacation will be in Mexico and Cuba early next year. I also enjoy spending time with family and friends (playing board games), shopping, going to the movies, and spontaneous day trips to Disneyland (I love anything Disney)! Lastly, I like painting in my free time as it reduces stress and stimulates my creativity!
Tell us an interesting or unusual fact about yourself.
Some say I can sing… I do enjoy a good karaoke sesh.
Wanna share a guilty pleasure?
My guilty pleasure is McDonald’s french fries!!! Shhhhh…
How long have you been training with Bootique Fitness?
Since March 2019.
What was your life like before Bootique Fitness? How is that different now that you train with Bootique?
I didn’t have a routine and didn’t enjoy going to the gym by myself. I often didn’t know how to use some of the machines, weights, or equipment properly. I had joined some Pilates classes and although I did enjoy them it didn’t feel like the right fit and environment. Since joining Bootique Fitness, I am more motivated to stick to a routine, I am more confident, and I love working out along other power women with the same mindset.
What results have you seen since coming to Bootique Fitness? How do your results make you feel?
I have become much stronger, fit, and confident! My endurance has also increased a lot. And, knowing all this just makes me happy and I feel healthier than ever!
Tell me about your experience with the trainers.
All the trainers are amazing! They all have their own workout/training style which makes each class fun and challenging. Jaylin has an amazing energy – she is very encouraging and committed to help meet my fitness goals. I like how she always checks-in on me to help me stay on track with my routine.
What are your favorite/least favorite exercises?
Favorite exercise: anything core/abs related; Least favorite exercise: push-ups
What do you enjoy the most about Bootique Fitness?
The workouts are intense and challenging which makes me push myself to go harder than ever. I feel amazing and accomplished after each workout! Best part is that all the workouts are outside and I enjoy being outdoors. I also admire the camaraderie among all the women – they are all welcoming, inspiring, and encouraging. The dance classes are also a great plus as they are super fun and packed with high energy.
What would you say to someone on the fence about making a change & committing to their goals?
The only way you know if you can really reach your goal is to take the first step. You’ll never know if something works out for you unless you take action.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Thanks Bootique Fitness for always making me feel good about myself! Keep up the amazing work!
Thank you Natalie! We love having you in our Bootique family.
