Introducing Sonjia! Don’t Let Those Big Blue Eyes Fool You

28 Sep

For those that know me, you know that Sonjia (prounounced Sone-Yah – not Sone-Jye-Ah) has been a big part of  incorporating exercise into a healthy lifestyle. I’ve had trainers before – blah blah blah. I’ve even gone through periods of fairly regular exercise.

But Sonjia is different. She has opened my world to big, functional, compound exercises that combine strength and cardio into challenging but doable workouts. These efficient circuits have produced results – my clothes fit differently, my endurance is better, and I am definitely stronger.

So here she is – in her video DEBUT – showing off one of our favorite exercises – the Wall Ball. Sometimes we do it for reps (about 20 per set), tabata (20 seconds hard, 10 seconds rest, repeat for 4 minutes), or time (1 or 2 minutes) as part of a larger circuit training.

In her words, “You’re going to LOVE this!”  Note: That’s code for this is harder than it looks (which is good, because I need to be tricked into working hard).


Do you have any favorite “harder than they look” exercises?
