Want to know more about the vivacious, energetic and beautiful women who buy our clothes? That’s why we started our FFL Ambassador campaign; to introduce you to our loyal customers, tell you what they do for fun and let you know their thoughts on exercise. Today we meet Donna Stove.
Where do you live?
I live in Macgregor in the ACT, Australia.
Tell us more about what you do.
My partner and I have owned a small business since 2011. I work from home during the day and I'm very blessed to have been able to be home for my kids. During their infant years I was also a stay-at-home mum.
Tell us more about your family.
I have a 14-year-old daughter and a 12-year-old son.
What do you do for fun besides exercise?
Besides exercise, I love reading (actual books!), crocheting and crosswords. I also love to draw mandalas for fun.
What is your attitude to fitness? Have you always enjoyed it?
I definitely HAVE NOT always enjoyed exercise! When I was younger I played netball, which didn't seem like a chore as I really enjoyed it. This is why I was really happy to discover contemporary dance and to re-discover Physical Culture. They are both an excellent workout and both are challenging, but I have so much fun doing them that they don't feel like they're a trial.
What does a typical week of exercise look like for you?
During school term time, a typical week of exercise would include: one evening of Physical Culture and one evening of contemporary dance for an hour. The rest of the week is usually made up of walking my dog around a creek that’s near to where we live – at it’s longest it’s just under 6km. I also usually ride my bike a couple of times per week around the creek or along other waterways nearby.
How did you find FFL and what keeps you coming back?
I found FFL when I was on Weight Watchers. Mel was advertising on their website, I had a look and I’ve been a loyal customer ever since!
