Bonnie Oliver was riding the bus to meet her boyfriend one day 15 years ago when she noticed a $99-for-three-months special at the Uptown YWCA. Although she’d been active as a young girl, she weighed 200 pounds at the time, so she hopped off the bus and signed up. That decision sparked a new level of fitness — and, eventually, a new career. Now 60, Oliver works full time at the Y as a personal trainer and instructor of Body Pump, aerobics, yoga, Silver Sneakers and cycling. In her spare time, she pumps iron and shoots hoops with her grandchildren.
