What do you like about Sonki Fitness Boot Camp and how has it affected your life?
Matt – I like that it gets me out of bed at 7:15AM and gets my heart pumping. I like being outdoors and on the beach. And I like the way Sonki runs the class!
Sunny -The class is so well rounded and somehow a lot of activities gets bundled into that 1 hour. And voila, you are done…all fit and energized for the rest of the day. I’ve lost 20 pounds and 3 pant sizes since I started training with Sonki. Shy of messing up my active pant ratio, it has improved my quality of life greatly. I feel like a super champ and in comes thru in all aspects of my life.
What advice would you give to others about fitness?
Matt – Seriously, stay away from the Cheesecake Pancake Sandwich at IHOP. They’re bad news.
Sunny – Get yourself in good shape, it’s worth it. And find something that is enjoyable to do so that you are excited and look forward to your fitness routine.
Any other comments? We have known each other since we were about fourteen years old. We went to high school together and have been very close friends for over fifteen years now. We are the founding members of a comedic hip-hop group called the Trilambs. We have both lost a good deal of weight during our time with Sonki — about fifteen and twenty pounds each. We are both in top form and get to spend three mornings a week together doing Sonki’s class. We are proud to be All-Stars and we plan to carry the title with honor and grace. But heavy hangs the crown…
