Skimble Member Spotlight: Gail Fonseca

This week we’d like to introduce you to Gail Fonseca, this week’s Skimble Member Spotlight! Gail has been with us since March and uses both Skimble’s Workout Trainer & GPS Sports Tracker apps!  We noticed Gail because she is super active in our Skimble community, and we got a chance to ask Gail some questions this past week:


What was your starting point versus your current fitness status?

I decided to start getting fit in 2010 when I bought the Wii Fit which then pushed me to get the Wii Activ which was more challenging. I discovered I thoroughly enjoyed it and noticed how my body was changing.  My main aim was to tone up after having 2 kids and being 39 I knew I was not as fit as I would like to be. I soon got bored with the Wii Activ & came across P90X which was tough and even more challenging.

I got an iPhone earlier this year and discovered Workout Trainer which I loved immediately and was amazed with how good any workout no matter how long or short made me feel.  I started to tone up even more. My legs & arms felt strong.

What’s your favorite thing about Skimble?  

I really love music so doing a workout and listening to my favourite songs make this app just unbeatable. I have become more confident in myself because of how I feel and look and recommend this app to anyone who have not got the time to go to a gym or go for a run etc.  A few friends have taken my advice and enjoy using it too. 

I also use the sports tracker to monitor my progress which is great in the way I have met many encouraging people who are as active if not more than me and who have been very encouraging towards what I am doing. This is one of the best things with the app as it has allowed me to meet some lovely, positive people who keep me motivated day in and day out. 

Who is your fitness icon?

My fitness icon is Shaun T & Tony Horton.  They have taught me that if I put my mind to it I can do it and that if it doesn’t challenge you it won’t change you. Although I must say some of my Skimble pals are icons in their own right and I feel we all motivate each other.


Thanks so much for chatting with us Gail!  We love hearing success stories like yours and hope you continue to stay active, both in real life and in the Skimble community! 

We at Skimble HQ get psyched when we find out that our members are going out and challenging themselves.  If you are planning to participate in some sort of challenging event, and are using the Workout Trainer & GPS Sports Tracker apps to help you train, we’d love to spotlight you!  Please send us an email to if you’re interested.
