Meet Coach Cyndi

What drew you to MBC? Where were you emotionally, physically, spiritually? 
When I came to Mama Bootcamp I was in a very low place physically and mentally. I was at my heaviest in my life and my 43rd birthday was quickly approaching. Each day my whole body would ache and I was exhausted by the end of each day. This feeling and my weight made me sad, and I started noticing that I didn't want to attend social events (even with close friends) because I was so self-conscience about my weight and I was always bone tired. I could barely make it up the two short flights to my office at work.

What made you want to be a coach? 
My husband asked me what I wanted for my birthday and the "things" that usually made me excited (makeup, purse, books etc.) just didn't seem appealing. I wanted to change, but I was scared to take that step. Then right about that time, I ran into a girlfriend I hadn't seen it a while and she looked great, had lost weight, and was happy and full of energy. I thought that is what I want: to feel like she does!! She told me the secret was Mama Bootcamp. She gave me the number and here I am.

What is the best part of being a coach? 
The best part of being a coach is looking around during a workout and watching the other mamas push themselves. When a mama suddenly realizes that they can do an exercise or are becoming stronger with each workout....It's great to see that realization come across their face, because I know they are feeling strong and proud of themselves at that moment, and I helped them get there. Nothing is prettier then confidence!

What are your interest, hobbies, etc.? What is your life like? 
My life has changed tremendously. I really like being outside in the fresh air. I feel fit, confident, and stronger now... I have not felt that in years.

What is your favorite snack? 
My favorite snack has to be a pink lady apple with a Laughing Cow cheese wedge. Apples are almost perfect - they are high in fiber and have natural sugar, they are full of vitamin B and C, less than 100 calories. I travel a lot for work and I can throw an apple in my bag and snack on that instead of the pastries that usually accompany my work travel. If you add the Laughing Cow cheese which is also low in calories and adds protein it equals the perfect snack.
