We are proud to announce Leslie as our Featured Boot Camp Client!
We’ve had the pleasure of knowing Leslie for over 4 years now. From rocking out at Zumba classes to blowing people away at boot camp, Leslie is notorious for giving her all at each and every workout. As our personal trainer Sarah shares, “Leslie is sweet, kind, and hard working. She gives every workout her all. She doesn’t complain… instead she smiles in its place. If she hates the exercise, she’s probably grinning and starting with it first.”
Leslie is also well known for being the girl who refused to use a mat during outdoor workouts. 🙂 We don’t mind either.
One of Sabrina’s best memories with Leslie is ” The Tequila shirt made my day.” For myself, I still remember the evening boot camp I taught when Leslie had just had a cup of coffee. She was WIRED! And – HILARIOUS! Good times!!!
Leslie is an inspiration. She’s driven. We’re honored to train with her.
What would you like people to know about you?
I’m originally from upstate New York, but I moved to San Diego in 2008 for work and fell in love with the weather and active lifestyle. I’ve been a member of Bootique Fitness through the transition from single to married life and from the switch from Navy to civilian life. Change is hard, but it can be fun when you have the right support!
Leslie’s Experience with Bootique Fitness
Leslie talks about how she came to work out with us and what her experience has been like in our San Diego boot camp.
How long have you been training with Bootique Fitness?
I’ve been training with Bootique since February 2011 when I took a boot camp class with Jaylin in Balboa Park. My best friend had convinced me to try an intense boot camp class with her, and I’ve been hooked since then. Work took me to Central California for two years but I still managed to drop in every few weeks for Friday morning boot camp in Balboa Park. That’s a testament to the great group of women that work out with Bootique.
What was your life like before Bootique Fitness?
Before Bootique, I despaired of finding time to work out during the week. Even when I could muster the motivation to get up early and work out, I wouldn’t push myself enough and I would get bored after a week or two. Most of the time, I was frustrated by how little time I thought I had to focus on fitness.
What results have you seen since coming to Bootique Fitness? How do your results make you feel?
Since coming to Bootique, I’ve felt a lot more energetic. I have a spring in my step, and I look forward to my workouts. There are always smiling faces and people to commiserate with at both boot camp and Zumba. I credit my positive attitude at work and my resilience from the workouts I do.
What is the biggest difference in your life since you started Bootique Fitness?
The best thing about my experience with Bootique is that it’s shown me I can maintain a lifelong habit of fitness without ignoring everything else in my life that’s important to me.
Tell me about your experience with the trainers.
The trainers are fabulous! Their dedication and funny personalities are what make the tough workouts fun. I’ve had the opportunity to train with Jaylin, Sarah, Mollie, Ro, and Sabrina – and they’re all great! What I love about them is that each trainer puts her own spin on the workout, so that each boot camp is totally different. It’s great to switch up boot camps because then it feels like you’re greeting an old friend when you run into a trainer you haven’t seen in a while. Also, Ro keeps me honest… whenever I run into her she asks me if I’ve had donuts. It keeps me from going on too many donut binges. 🙂
What do you enjoy the most about Bootique Fitness?
I love the Bootique community! It truly helps me sustain the habit of fitness.
Why should other women just like you consider Bootique Fitness as their solution?
Jaylin and the other trainers are fun, professional, and extremely dedicated. They truly care about client success, and are willing to walk the walk with you every step of the way.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Thank you for the opportunity to share my experience. I’m so proud to be part of the Bootique community!
Thank you Miss Leslie! We love training you!
Be sure to congratulate and celebrate Leslie when you see her! She usually plays at the Hillcrest boot camps classes and gets her groove on in our Zumba classes.
