Sonja found the true transformational power of exercise after experiencing the difference between her first inactive pregnancy and postpartum period and her next two pregnancies which were fitness focused.
She challenges the false notion that pregnant women are inherently delicate and should therefore remain mostly inactive for the health of their baby. Sonja’s goal is for everyone—but especially women—to find the confidence needed to turn away from the destructive societal trifecta of complacency, low self-worth, and a sedentary lifestyle, in order to regain ownership of their body, health, and mindset.
Sonja brings with her a background in Kinesiology from Oregon State University and a passion for fitness that spans over 13 years. Her knowledge base includes CrossFit, bodybuilding & body sculpting as well as prenatal & postpartum exercise with a focus on core and pelvic floor rehabilitation.
When she’s not in the gym, Sonja enjoys outdoor sports like snowboarding, volleyball, and playing with her three young children— Robbie, Luca, and Vesper. She also loves a good craft beer and travelling with her non-traditional family, including baby daddies Camron and Kieron.
