Girl Crush: Drea Wheeler
Posted on 15 September 2016
Looking for a burst of energy? Drea Wheeler is your girl. As a trainer, Lolë ambassador and Victoria Park Health Club director, this Texan powerhouse knows how to get her crew busting moves to a pulsing beat. She’s enthusiastic and passionate about fitness and well-being, but what we love most about Drea is that she’s just so darn sweet!
Meet this former track and field athlete turned fitness expert who now calls Montreal home (and find out about our special miel4drea promo!).
What’s a typical day in the life of Drea Wheeler?
I start early and finish late! My days are filled with meetings, fitness classes and the occasional modelling photoshoot. I live a crazy but awesome life.
What makes your Bodylicious™ workout so good for women?
I created Bodylicious™ 5 years ago. As an athlete, I wanted a workout that made me feel athletic while having a good time at the same time. It’s great for women because it gives you a lean but toned body while feeling strong and empowered.
Miel lingerie is all about keeping today’s busy woman fresh, comfortable and sexy from morning to night, from the house to the office, and from the gym to a night out on the town. How do you make sure you feel good about yourself day in, day out?
By surrounding myself with men and women who feel good about themselves. You are who you hang with! There are a lot of strong independent people around me, who feel confident about themselves, and this ultimately rubs off on me.
As someone who spends most of her time in a gym, what role does fashion play in your life?
I love to call myself the queen of “athleisure” LOL! Over time I’ve realized that I can still look fashionable in my fitness gear and Birkenstocks. Well, maybe the Birks are pushing it a bit… but you get the idea.
In the same vein, what #DeaApproved outfit takes a gal from active workout to mellow cocktails?
My go-to outfit from gym to terrace consists in throwing on a top over my yoga bra and leggings and trading my sneakers for the black heels I keep in the trunk of my car.
You always look so HAWT! What’s your daily beauty routine?
Every morning, I wash my face, exfoliate and apply moisturizer. I do the same thing at night. That’s it! I rarely wear makeup and I think this is what keeps my skin looking fresh.
From Texas teen to Montreal fitness guru, you’ve sure come a long way! What’s the next item you’d like to check off your bucket list?
To become a fitness guru for all of Canada! I know this is setting my sights pretty far, but it’s what I would love to attain next.
Your go-to "Hell yeah, I've got this!" motivation song?
Flawless by Beyoncé :)
Any guilty pleasure/cheat food?
Cheeseburgers all day!
Which celeb is your ultimate Bodylicious™ inspiration?
There isn’t just one celeb, but Beyoncé and Rihanna are definitely a couple of my personal inspirations. Yours might be someone different though and that’s totally OK. We all need to feel inspired!
Last but not least, who inspires you and why?
Queen Bee once again! She’s taking over the music industry not only as a singer but as a businesswoman too. I want to do the same as a leading fitness guru and businessperson.
