mom workouts


About two years ago, I started doing small group classes with Sonja. In January, I had my first baby so my husband purchased a gift certificate for personal training sessions with Sonja to help me get back into shape. I was the matron of honor in my best friend’s wedding three months after the birth of my daughter (talk about pressure!), so I was determined to feel good about myself and fit into my dress.

I started out with a one-on-one session with Sonja, which I loved because she was able to tailor this session to my current fitness level and talk through my goals and the areas I wanted to particularly focus on during the course of my sessions with her. Over a six-week period, I did several private pilates sessions with Sonja, as well as small group classes, which involved high-impact workouts with a small group of 3-4 of us each week.

What I love about Sonja is that she uses several types of workouts to give you the best results possible – her work outs are like a bootcamp, pilates and barre class all rolled into one. She focuses on high-impact workouts while making them fun and creative! Not only is she an exceptional fitness instructor, but she is also friendly, knowledgeable and energetic. She inspires and motivates you to look and feel better about yourself in a positive, supportive and encouraging way.

Unfortunately, I just moved to Annapolis so I can no longer join Sonja’s classes. However, I’ve continued to use what I’ve learned from her today, and I’m happy to say that I reached my pre-pregnancy weight four months after the birth of my daughter. I can’t say enough about Sonja and the help she gave me to reach my goals and feel good about myself again! She is the best!
