Congratulations Miss April!
We are proud to announce Wendy as our Featured Bootique Client!
Wendy is a positive person in class, which we love but she really shines in our Facebook group with encouraging words of motivation to share.
It’s makes me proud to see such a hard working mom: self-employed with two very active teenagers; prioritize time to take care of herself!
I can also boast about how she takes care of me 🙂 – she’s my hair stylist and keeps my reds looking fiery just the way I like ’em!
What would you like people to know about you?
I am a native San Diegan and live with my husband, 2 teenage sons ages almost 14 and 15, a dog, cat and leopard Greco. I am fast approaching age 51 on May 3rd. I work as a hairdresser in Mission Valley at a salon called Frederick Michael. I love what I do and have been in the industry for 30 years.
What are your hobbies/interests outside of our classes?
As far as hobbies and interests go, I don’t have a ton of free time these days, but I do enjoy gardening and reading. As a family, we like to go bowling and anytime I get to travel anywhere is always a happy time for me.
Tell us an interesting or unusual fact about yourself.
I spent a lot of my early 20’s traveling through Australia and Southeast Asia. I picked fruits and veggies to earn money for future travels when in Australia, worked at an Australian pub in Hong Kong, taught English in Taiwan and Bangkok and worked at a karaoke bar in Japan. Fun stuff!
Wanna share a guilty pleasure?
My biggest guilty pleasure is sitting poolside with a cocktail. Anytime, anywhere.
How long have you been training with Bootique Fitness?
I just celebrated my one year anniversary with Bootique!
What was your life like before Bootique Fitness? How is that different now that you train with Bootique?
Before Bootique, I was more of a runner/jogger. I did it for years and loved it but after I turned 40, my hips and knees didn’t love it so much. I still jog/walk a a mile or two here and there, but honestly since working out with Bootique, my hips don’t ache at night anymore. I love feeling more balanced with doing the different exercises.
What results have you seen since coming to Bootique Fitness? How do your results make you feel?
I have 10lbs since the start, but more importantly my balance and strength have really improved. I love that I can feel the muscles in my booty and can see the overall tone of my body changing. I genuinely feel so much stronger than before.
What is your favorite/least favorite exercise?
My least favorite exercise is a tie between burpees and overhead push ups. They make me dizzy lol! My favorite is wall sits. I like the combo of concentration and the burn.
What do you enjoy the most about Bootique Fitness?
I love the sense of community, accountability and sisterhood at Bootique. I live in a house full of boys, so I need me some sister time. I also love that I can push myself to do things that I never thought I could. At the end of each workout, your like,”yes! I did it! Yea me!”
What would you say to someone on the fence about making a change & committing to their goals?
Change isn’t easy, but the best decision you can make is to join a group with awesome motivated trainers! Make a plan and get a group around you that supports your plan and wants you to achieve your goals just as much as you do. I would tell anyone who is struggling to make a change to just try Bootique for 1 month and you won’t look back.
Thank you Wendy. We love training you!
