We are so excited to share the personal story about this months’ member! We love having her as part of our tribe and we hope you enjoy getting to know her a little bit more! Here is our  April 2016 Tribe Member Spotlight: Faith and fitness, committed to both!

Give us a little history about yourself.  Where were you born? Did you play sports growing up?

I was born in Detroit, Michigan.  I moved to California at age one.  I pretty much stayed here except for a short time in Hesperia.  I have two grown sons and three grandchildren.  I will have been married to my wonderful husband for thirty-five years come this May 2.  I was married before for a short time.

I graduated from Ramona High school and went straight into the Riverside Academy of Beauty.  I have loved doing hair for all of my 39 year career.  I have had eight major hand surgeries and I will have my last hand surgery this fall.


      Vicki and her husband love outdoor activities and spending time with their granddaughter.

I am a summer girl and I love the heat.  I love all water sports.  I can water ski, Paddle board, Kayak, snorkel, swim, para-sail, zip-line but my favorite is to fish with my hubby.  The water is so peaceful.  I love to travel.  My favorite places have been Israel, Tahiti and Kauai.  We go to Kauai almost every year.  I love crafts and being creative.

What is your motivation to work out?

I attend the Grove Community Church which is where I first heard about Fatimat.  I have two friends who attended her boot camp and I saw results in how they looked and how they felt.  I met Fatimat one evening at The Grove and I went to see her for my fitness consultation and I thought, “This is what I need”.  I started right away.  I could not attend boot camp as I had so many hand disabilities from doing hair for 39 years so I chose personal training.

How does working out make you feel?

Fatimat worked on all my needs and modified my workouts.  Then I started eating clean from her recipes.  I soon felt wonderful and the results were more than I ever expected.  If I cheated and ate bad things, it was okay once in a while but after any length of time I began to feel fatigued and tired and, of course, it showed.  Returning to clean eating gave me my energy back. The old saying that we are what we eat is true.

What are your goals?

My goals are to have the strength I need as I age, to feel stable whenever I walk and be balanced and, of course, to look strong.

What do you do to make sure you have time for your workouts?

I have to make time for my fitness workout. I treat my fitness session like I would a Dr. appointment. I work out 3 times a week, and I try to schedule nothing on Monday, Wednesday or Friday mornings.  This is MY time.

What do you do to make sure you have time for your workouts?

 If anyone reading this thinks that they can’t or just don’t have the time just remember that you will never have time unless you make time.  One month could forever change your life.  I have been with Fatimat for 3 years and I still love it.  I love to be challenged and the coaches here at Village Coach Fitness are always changing the routine and it is so fun to come and see what I get to do.  With God all things are possible and I keep my faith strong in the Lord.  My life verse is Job 23:10.

Thank you coach Fatimat and coach Vincent for always encouraging me and keeping me healthy.
