We are proud to announce Donna as our Featured Boot Camp Client!
Two years ago, Donna graced us with her presence at our Marina boot camp for the first time. As she alludes to in her interview later, I alerted her that she was likely to be very sore from that workout.
Fortunately, that didn’t scare her away. In fact, Donna has one of the most consistent attendance records of all our members – and her results show it! What I love is that she still gets excited to feel “happy sore” after most workouts – a symbol to her that she had a great workout.
If Donna didn’t proudly share her age with you, you would never know she’s 59. Not only does she look incredible, but she’s strong and lean and will prove it – just challenge her to a push up contest.
An inspiration to many, Donna always has a great attitude, works hard and takes great care of herself. She’s still kicking bum with the Bootique Babes in races and she’s on top of encouraging her classmates to get down and foam roll. Now, if only I can get her to fulfill that promise to come play at Zumba one day… 😉
What would you like people to know about you?
I am a native New Yorker who has been enjoying the San Diego sunshine since 1979. On Labor Day my husband and I are celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary…..and I still adore him! We have been blessed with 2 great kids and a new son-in-law. I enjoy my career as VP/CFO for an IT company.
Donna’s Experience with Bootique Fitness
Donna 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?
For 2 years
What was your life like before Bootique Fitness?
I have always been active, running and walking, but I lacked strength training.
What results have you seen since coming to Bootique Fitness?
My main objective in joining Bootique was to get stronger. In doing so I have gained true definition in my arms and chest, lost several inches in my mid-section 🙂 and overall I simply feel better. 🙂
What is the biggest difference in your life since you started Bootique Fitness?
At the age of 59, I physically feel stronger and more fit than I did at 40.
How do your results make you feel?
I like my arms in a tank top!
Tell me about your experience with the trainers.
I randomly showed up at the 6:00 a.m. Marina Boot Camp when my husband and I moved from East County to downtown. I remember Jaylin welcoming me, then telling me that I would be more sore the next day than ever before in my life. She was correct but I have never regretted that day. She has encouraged me along the way and continues to push me to work harder at each session. Now I also have the pleasure of training with Ro. She has the same strong work ethic as Jaylin, keeps us moving and smiling along the way.
What do you enjoy the most about Bootique Fitness?
6:00 a.m., on the waterfront, under the beautiful San Diego sky, training with a group of ladies whom I adore. It doesn’t get any better than this!
Why should other women just like you consider Bootique Fitness as their solution?
I have learned that age really doesn’t matter if you work hard to improve your body and mind through exercise. Finding the right program, aka Bootique Fitness, is key.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Shout Out to my favorite Marina Boot Camp buddies: Karen, Jane, Kimberly, Lila, Bethany, Alysia and all of the group. How fortunate I am to have you in my life….thank you!
Thank you Miss Donna! We love training you!
Be sure to congratulate and celebrate Donna when you see her at boot camp! She plays at the 6 am Marina boot camps and at many different races throughout San Diego.
