What is your current exercise routine? I do Sonki’s 6:30 a.m. Santa Monica class on Mon, Wed and Fri. I also try to go to one night class a week and Saturday’s class. In between classes, I usually try to squeeze in at least one or two workouts. My good friend Tae (who is also in Sonki’s class) and I have created our own little pseudo Sonki routine that we do on the off days.
What is your key to success? Commitment and seeing results. Making sure to go everyday, even if I am tired from work or don’t feel good, I make sure to go to class and that commitment has definitely helped me get to where I am today. The encouragement from my friends in the class has also helped tremendously. I have the greatest support team.
How long have you been doing Sonki Fitness Boot Camp? I started taking Sonki’s class last January. Its been a little over a year now.
What do you like about Sonki Fitness Boot Camp and how has it affected your life? I love Sonki’s classes because they always seem to be different and I never get bored. Sonki always inspires me to work harder too. He is the opposite of a ruthless drill sergeant (unless you’re late to class) and he always makes you want to push yourself with positive motivation. Sonki’s class has unquestionably changed my life. I have more energy than I have ever had and feel better than I ever have.
What advice would you give to others about fitness? You can do it! Everyone can succeed in Sonki’s classes – you just have to try and stay committed. Also, set small goals throughout the session. Anything from, just showing up three days a week, doing the bicycle (ab exercise) without stopping to rest, or just don’t stop running no matter how slow you go works. It’s the little accomplishments that add up to the big achievement!
