How did you become a personal trainer in San Diego?
I met Jaylin in 2011 – I had quit my sales job at a Fortune 500 company on a random Wednesday at 10am. I had just had…enough! In my time off I became a certified personal trainer and landed upon Jaylin’s job posting. Her red hair and smile were inviting. She became my mentor and friend and I’ve been with her since. I’ve worked at other gyms and camps but Bootique is my favorite. The camaraderie among the women is awesome! My goal is to make every class fun – to have as little monotony as possible. It’s tricky though, it really makes me visualize the program I’m creating, from start to finish. If I get excited about what I’ve created for the girls then I feel I’ve done a good job. I know I’ve been successful when I hear “we’re done already?!” or “that was fun!” I’m passionate about making fitness fun for others, so that they realize it can be done with friends/family, and often. It doesn’t have to be something you dread! The more you like it, the more you will do it.

Who is your hero? And why?
My Mom. My Dad passed unexpectedly when I was 15 and my sister was 11. My mom filled the shoes of both parents. I can’t imagine going through what she did.

What’s the most unusual place you have visited?
Debre Libanos – a monastery in Ethiopia founded in the 13th century. It was the Ethiopian Christmas holiday. We hiked straight up the side of a mountain where men and women were taking cleansing showers at the top before entering a holy cave where historical beliefs state a Saint meditated for 29 years. We were then invited into the simple home of a very kind religious leader. He spoke only his native language but shared bread and drink with us and even took photos with us. It was such a unique and eye opening experience. Everyone stared as us white foreigners. My friend who spoke the native language overheard one person say “Geez it’s not like they are monkeys, everyone should stop staring.”

How Bootique Began

Do you want to know how I got started in the fitness business?

… a story about Jaylin

Growing up, I was never good at traditional sports or gym class, but I knew I wanted to be active. I started exercising to home videos in high school – but that was boring so when I went to college, I joined a gym. At the time, I was very shy, unsure of myself and had no idea what to do in the gym – it was intimidating to say the least.

I took exercise classes in the gym, but they were hardly any fun ones and so it was very difficult to stick to. Fortunately for me, before she moved away, my favorite instructor Julie, inspired me to become a fitness instructor. I don’t know how she talked me into it… but I am so appreciative that she did.

“I truly found my voice.”

Though I was still shy outside of the classroom, when I taught fitness classes, I came alive. Suddenly, I felt like people were counting on me to make them feel better, get stronger and healthier – and I thrived on their energy! Not only did it feel great to help them, but I was receiving so much help from them too. By teaching fitness, I grew more confident and sure of myself. I began to be more outgoing and vocal – and I was having so much more fun!

Within three short months of getting my first fitness certification, I was teaching 9 classes a week. It was a lot of work considering I was going to school full time and waitressing, but the joy you see in someone’s eyes when they tell you what an impact you’ve had on their lives… inexplicable, but I loved it! And I wanted to experience as much of it as possible.

I graduated with degree in Business and started my career in the corporate world. I always thought I would be wearing power suits to work in fancy offices. After a few years, I was too busy at work to teach fitness classes. I enjoyed being a business woman, but I missed being in the fitness world… so I made a change.

One small step leads to a big change.

While I was still in the mortgage industry, I started teaching spinning classes – and I loved it! Shortly after, I jumped careers to become a personal trainer. It was a great decision for me. From there, I started my own personal training business and began teaching outdoor boot camps on the Boston Esplanade. As soon as I got a taste of teaching fitness outdoors, I was hooked. So, I moved from Boston to San Diego and recreated my business as an outdoor fitness solution for women – boot camp!

I started Bootique Fitness because I found great joy in helping others to feel good about themselves through fitness and a healthy lifestyle and I believed in my ability to create a company and a team that had something special to offer. I love that Bootique has grown into such a wonderful family of women, from all different fitness levels and walks of life, that come together to support, encourage and entertain each other. My career is truly one of life’s greatest gifts to me!
