We are proud to announce Maura as our Featured Boot Camp Client!
Maura is incredible! From her first beach workout on the very next day after she was cleared from the doctor postpartum, she’s been killing it in every class she takes. Nothing holds her back, not her newborn, not her 3 jobs, nothing! It’s very fun to train her. I mostly get to see her at Zumba – where she likes to request all the higher intensity, more booty-shaking routines. Works for me! Our other trainers see her in the Personal Training Group classes more. Here’s what they have to share:
Maura will work SO hard, sometimes with a smile on her face. But my favorite part about her is she dances All.The.Time. Even after doing burpees and sprints back to back, she will still get down to some old school hip hop! She is super supportive of fellow Bootiquers new and old. I look forward to her in class!
First time I trained Muara was her first class back from her pregnancy and it was a beach workout… She still reminds me of that workout every time 🙂 She didn’t quit and it was a tough, tough workout! Like Sarah said, such a hard worker! Doesn’t let her newborn stop her and often has him join her a boot camp and uses him as a weight. I also think she secretly loves burpess. (- Sarah agrees on the love for burpees)
What would you like people to know about you?
My husband and I have been married for seven years, but met my first day of high school in Colorado when I was 14 years old! We lost touch after high school but randomly ran into each other in a bar in Denver eight years later… and discovered we were both moving to San Diego within three months of each other. We live in Point Loma now with our two wonderful fur babies and adorable 13 month old son. I guess some things are meant to be!
Maura’s Experience with Bootique Fitness
Maura talks about how she came to work out with us and what her experience has been like in our San Diego boot camp.
You just celebrated your 1 year anniversary with Bootique Fitness? How does it feel to have accomplished that?
This year has certainly flown by. I feel so blessed to have found Bootique (shout out to Angela Buckman and Sarah Nakamoto :)) and to have access to the awesome trainers and clients who push me and encourage me every day.
What was your life like before Bootique Fitness?
I’ve always been pretty active and fit, but I would have a hard time sticking to something longer than a few months. You name it, I’ve tried it, but nothing really resonated with me. Then, a couple of years ago I tried Sarah’s boot camp and that was it for me. I was hooked! When I got pregnant in 2013, burpees became became a thing of the past and I had to taper off my exercise regime for the time being.
What results have you seen since coming to Bootique Fitness? How do your results make you feel?
Well, other than the 40 pound baby weight loss, I am toning up and can definitely feel the difference in how my clothes fit. They are tight in all the right places! It’s addictive to see that kind of change and the more results I see, the harder it makes me want to work.
What is the biggest difference in your life since you started Bootique Fitness?
As a wife and a new mom with three jobs, it’s very hard to find “me” time, but with Bootique, that’s exactly what I am doing. It’s only an hour or so out of my day and the feeling I get from being active and taking care of myself makes me better in all other facets of my life. I notice on days when I work out, I feel happier and more content, even when the inevitable chaos ensues.
Tell me about your experience with the trainers.
I am so in love with all of the trainers!
Each one brings their own energy and personality to each workout, and I know no matter who I am with, it’s going to be a challenge. Sarah and I have history and she knows all of my nuances, so she knows how and when to push me, but will give me a modification right from the start if she knows a move might be an issue for me. Sabrina is so motivating and keeps me moving. She makes me want to push myself to eek out that last little bit of energy I have left. Jaylin’s energy is infectious. It’s impossible not to feel amped when you are around her. Ro is crazy (in a good way!). My first day at Bootique was the day after my doctor cleared me to workout again 6 weeks after my baby was born and I made the colossal mistake of going to Saturday morning Mission Bay workout with Ro which just so happened to be a SAND workout. Needless to say, I was not ready for that, but she made me want to go back for more!
What do you enjoy the most about Bootique Fitness?
First of all, I LOVE to dance, so you had me at Zumba. As for boot camp, I love that it’s such an individual experience, yet you have all of the other ladies there pushing you. I can go at my own pace and I am only competing against myself to be better, but the other women are so motivating and it feels like such a comradeship when you are sweating it out together.
Why should other women just like you consider Bootique Fitness as their solution?
Bootique is such a unique experience. All of the women I have met through both Zumba and boot camp have been welcoming and encouraging. You need to put in the work, but the payoff is so worth it. You will feel better about yourself both mentally and physically. No matter what your fitness level is, you CAN do it and you WILL see results.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
I am just so happy to have found Bootique and feel like I’ve won the lottery with the group of trainers and women who push me every week.
Thank you Miss Maura! We love training you!
Be sure to congratulate and celebrate Maura when you see her! She usually plays at the Hillcrest and Mission Bay boot camps classes and shakes it on the dance floor in our Zumba classes.
