BACKGROUND: If you traveled back in time to when I was a kid, to tell me I would run a 6:14 mile or do nearly 60 push-ups in a minute, I’d never have believed you. I never dreamed I’d be this fit. I was more interested in staying inside, on my computer.
The dedication to my computer evolved into a career, but I didn’t look out for my body. There needs to be a balance. Feeling and being healthy feeds back positively into every other part of life. Besides, I want to live long. When I have kids, I want to be able to play with them, no matter how old I am.
Sonki Fitness gives that to me, in a high intensity, efficient, and motivating way.
What is your current exercise routine? Sonki Fitness Boot Camp
What is your motivation to stay in shape? To look, feel, and be great.
What is your greatest challenge to staying in shape? Work. I give my employer my mind. I have to constantly remind myself that I have only 1 body, 1 life. Don’t give them that too. Don’t work around the clock. Don’t sit all day.
What is your key to success? Systems over goals. If my habits are regular, I will get stronger, faster, leaner. This works better for me than obsessing over a specific number of pounds.
What do you like about Sonki Fitness Boot Camp and how has it affected your life? Traditional gyms, given enough time going through the motions, make me look good. Sonki Fitness makes me BE good. It makes the most of my effort. And there’s no better way to start the day than with the sunrise on the beach. I’m happier. I eat better.
What advice would you give to others about fitness? Take a step back from your routine and analyze, am I getting my time’s worth?
