Women’s Life Link would like to introduce, Donna Martelli. She is currently a certified personal trainer, dance instructor, and founder of the Beautiful Feet Dance Ministry.
As an expert in several methods of training, Donna helps women reach higher levels of fitness through personal coaching and proven techniques. I’ve been in her classes; she is tough! We are thankful to have her on board at Women’s Life Link as an author.
WLL – Tell us a little about yourself (not what you do but who you are).
Donna – I am a fairly simple, yet urban woman. I love the city and the sights, sounds and smells of it. I need my alone time but must come together with friends and family regularly and even new acquaintances every now and then. I like for things to be clean, neat and orderly…even if I sometimes have trouble keeping them that way! I find delight in free spirited, insightful animals like birds and horses.
WLL – What is the main focus of your professional life at this time?
Donna – My main focus is to train and help other women be the best that they can be, whether in dance, fitness, or any other area. I want to educate others on how important dance and movement are to our health, our society and our worship. I am endeavoring to live and work from rest, let go of unnecessary things, be in peace, and experience abundant life.
WLL – Describe the most fulfilling moment of your life.
Donna– I am still thinking about this one!
WLL – You’ll have to write an article on it when you can.
WLL – What can women learn from your life example?
Donna – Not to “sweat the small stuff” but keep moving onward towards their goals.
WLL – What advice would you give to young women about their health, fitness, and beauty?
Donna – One of the best things women can to to improve their health, fitness, and especially beauty (in addition to eating right and getting the right amount of proper exercise, of course) is to learn how to relax and truly rest. I have only recently learned this from Dr. Lamse. She has helped me in learning some relaxation techniques. This has impacted virtually every area of my life. I think I feel an article coming on here!
WLL – We are looking forward to reading about the topic.
WLL – What life-lesson do you wish you had learned much earlier in life?
Donna – I wish I had known a little more about life before I got married and had children.
WLL – How do you think other women see you?
Donna – They think I get a lot done!
WLL – Name three things on your life list (what you want to do before you die).
Donna – 1. I would like to have someone come in and totally clean, redecorate and make my house beautiful! 2. Visit Australia 3. Visit Arizona
WLL – Any regrets?
Donna – On snowy days I am kind of sorry I left the south (where I was born and raised)!
WLL – Who or what inspires you to reach your dreams?
Donna – I think God put it in me!

Glad to see Donna added to the author list… look forward to reading her material!
She will be doing some articles soon. I also am looking forward to reading them. She has an arsenal of info on fitness. I think you should write something for the site, too. What do you think?
