    Sonja has a passion for helping people become the best they can be. She is an excellent personal trainer who truly cares about her clients. I have been blessed to see her in action and to be a recipient of her training. Everyone who works with Sonja will benefit from her knowledge and expertise. I highly recommend her services.

    The best personal trainer and fitness instructor that I've ever worked with! Knowledgeable about current techniques and exercises and how to individualize them. Always upbeat,caring and compassionate- a remarkable human being. Still friends and I miss her greatly since moving to Virginia.

    Sonja is very knowledgeable and an excellent personal trainer! She goes the extra mile to find out how to help her clients, and she continues to apply herself to increase her knowledge and understanding of the human body and how it operates most effectively. I have benefited from Sonja's expertise in a number of ways from being able to receive Pilates training and personal training to being able to learn more about how the body moves in all three planes of motion to being able to learn more about diet and exercise.

    Sonja was my fitness instructor for over eight years. I have never met a more
    knowledgable trainer. She is articulate in the way she explains what muscles you are using and how it works. She is conscientious in everything she does.
    She is an honest and sincere person and I have been privileged in knowing her.
    She is the best investment you could make for your health.
