BACKGROUND: I’ve never been a runner, so it felt awesome to shave a minute off my mile time as a result of my Sonki Fitness training. It took a couple of sessions, but it happened to my amazement. I also feel incredibly stronger mentally—the best feeling is wanting to work out instead of dreading it.
What is your current exercise routine? I attend Sonki Fitness 3 times a week and aim for a short run or something active on weekends.
What is your motivation to stay in shape? First, I have so much more energy when my body feels good. Second, it’s nice to have the confidence to go try new things—like paddle boarding, a tough hike, or a new yoga class–without being worried if I can hang (physically) or not.
What is your greatest challenge to staying in shape? Work…but you just have to set boundaries.
What do you like about Sonki Fitness Boot Camp and how has it affected your life? A consistent work out routine with cool people and an energized trainer on crisp LA mornings, 3 times per week, truly makes me look forward to moving my body. I never thought I would crave working out…but it’s actually happened.
What advice would you give to others about fitness? You gotta start somewhere. I was by far the slowest and least athletic chick in class when I started Sonki Fitness. But I kept with it. I improved. I feel better. I feel stronger. And it’s now become a way of life.
