Tell us a little about yourself:
I am a self employed 60yr old “Tahoe Girl”. I was lucky to have grown up in Tahoe – So Tahoe High class of 75’! I own Aloha Ice Cream (Not the reason I am a work out addict) and also am Co-Owner of a local Construction Co. and drive a snow plow during the winter. Yes, I work ALOT! I am proud mom to my wonderful daughter Casey. Crazy Bernese Mountain Dog mom, love hiking with my Berner “Blue” music, cooking and reading. When I can grab some quiet down time I thoroughly relish it. Working out facilitates me “keeping my head screwed on straight” – taking care of my body is a top priority, and I do my best problem solving while sweating.
What made you choose Tahoe Club 100?
I am typically not a gym goer, but I felt that I needed extra motivation and support in my fitness goals. I believe that people come into our lives for a reason, and became friends Rosie and her family through Aloha Ice Cream. Rosie told me about Club 100, took a few classes and was hooked – I like a workout that hands my !!! to me, and knew that Rosie was just the person to do it.
What Drives you to work out?
A: I love the infectious positive energy of Rosie and the morning girls, such a great way to start the day – not to mention the awesome results. My life had undergone many amazing changes in the last few yrs., and my morning workouts with my Fearless Leader and the girls are a VERY very important part of my day.
What is your proudest fitness moment?
A: Pike Jacks on the TRX, Burpees – so hard but getting better and better, looking forward to the next challenge instead of thinking “uh-oh.”
Favorite Exercise or Piece of Equipment?
A: TRX – I love the total body workout, anything upper body – Lat pull downs, Smith Rower, modified pull-ups – a great challenge, I WILL do it!
Favorite work out song, artist or album?
A: So much music! U2 – Beautiful Day especially, AC/DC, Rolling Stones – Shattered, Eminem – Lose Yourself, MC Hammer – U Can’t Touch This – Too Legit to Quit, OutKast – The Way You Move.
What’s in Your Gym Bag?
A: I don’t really have a gym bag, but I always have lots of water, nuts, a cold cooked yam, gum, lip balm, and my favorite – Blue my dog and his girlfriend Honey come to the gym with me and wait patiently.
