July member spotlight: Mette Boichat


Each month, we feature one of our amazing Weekly Workout Club members here in our shiny wellness and lifestyle area.

If you’re a member, you’ll know that its really important to Jo that we are all in this together and supporting one another on our fitness journeys.  This is the reason why Jo always refers to the club as the ‘Weekly Workout Family!’

We thought it was time for members to get to know each other a little more and to share some stories and experiences.

Our July spotlight features Mette Boichat …

Tell us about yourself

I was born in Denmark but have lived in the UK for 40 years (mainly in North and Central London).

I had a big career in marketing but gave it up to look after my daughter, dogs and hubby (!) and moved to the Home Counties.

My daughter is 14 and I have had Bernese Mountain Dogs for over 15 years. I’ll no doubt be accumulating more dogs when the inevitable empty nest syndrome sets in in a few years!

What motivates you to exercise regularly?

I love exercising as it gives me energy and confidence and my motivation is driven by wanting to have a long and healthy life and be a role model to my gorgeous daughter.

I discovered Jo’s Weekly Workout classes in lockdown and absolutely love them.

I  can’t pick a favourite but every week is something new and different. I have been doing Pilates on and off for 20 years and I’m so happy to have found such a convenient way to exercise.

How else do you exercise?

I also love dog walking and have recently become a Peloton spin bike bore!

Some of your favourite things?

Here are some of my favourite things:

Food – pasta, pasta and pasta
Drink – Diet Coke ( bad I know!)
Book – The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Mark Haddon
Film – The Godfather


Thank you so much to Mette for her wonderful spotlight article. We’ll feature another member next month and if you’d like to be featured – drop us a line!
