1) What brought you to BurnSF and what keeps you coming back?
I began working out at Burn three years ago when my physical condition was at a very low point and I was not making progress at “the gym”. BurnSF’s convenient locations, and amount of classes/times available per day, worked well with my work/family schedule. Burn is just a regular part of my routine now. I even use all the great workout videos when I travel! Amazing Instructors, variety of workouts, and the results plus sweat keep me coming back.
2) What do you love to hate about BurnSF?
Burpees! No, wait…Tricep push-ups. I still suck at push-ups, but I am getting better!
3) When not at Burn, where can you be found in the city? (Favorite things to do)
I walk every Saturday and Sunday with a friend at either Stowe Lake or Chrissy Field-GG Bridge (before my Burn class)! Movies, Farmer’s Markets (I love to cook!) and Restaurants. I went to about 6 Giants games this past season and have tickets to a 49ers game this past November.
4) Tell us one interesting fact someone might not know about you.
My brother has my Caesar Salad recipe framed and hanging in his kitchen. It’s that good!
5) Kids? Ages? Pets?
I have two beautiful boys, they are 18 (Carter) and 22 (Harris). I am currently pet-less but I have always had cats. When I was in 3rd grade I watched my cat have her litter of kittens in my room in the middle of the night.
6) How often do you Burn?
I try to get to class at least 5 days a week. I actually want to do 2 classes in a row one day, double-day, and double the BURN.
7) Give a little back story about yourself
I grew up in Nebraska and went to college at Colorado State University. I’ve been in San Francisco for 25 years! I was a competitive Swimmer from age 8 through high school. Over the years I have always tried to keep a regular workout routine. In the olden days I used to go to Jazzercise! Since discovering Burn, I’m in the best shape ever.
8) What inspires you?
I am inspired by people who help others that are less fortunate than they are.
