Let me introduce myself – I am Sonia Roberts.
I am 40 something years old, small and loud with lots of energy and a passion for strength training and fitness. I’m happily married and Mum to two not-so-small teenagers and a crazy Springer Spaniel. I started out in the Fitness Industry in 2011 and quickly became known locally for my unique Boxercise classes and Bikini Bodybuilding achievements.
Keeping it real…
I fully appreciate that the last thing most people want is another trim Fitness Instructor preaching about the benefits of exercise and telling you what you should and shouldn’t be eating. I have personally been considerably overweight and completely understand all the fears and emotions associated with weight gain, not to mention the physical restrictions. When I finally started to address my weight issue I was in excess of 13 and a half stone, which for a short arse like myself was rather unhealthy. I made many, many mistakes and tried every fad diet going with varying results until a year or so later I eventually ended up with an eating disorder, weighing in at an unhealthy 7 stone 10lbs. Thankfully with the support and patience of my husband and a couple of fantastic friends I have emerged to be fit and healthy with the knowledge and empathy to help others, alongside the relevant education and qualifications.
So why am I sharing my past so openly? The good news is I have made all the mistakes so that you do not have to! I feel it’s very important that you realise whatever it is you are going through you are not alone. The bravery it takes to step foot inside any strength and fitness based establishment with other lycra clad lovelies when you are not feeling at your best is a monumental task in itself and this is where Beach Body Studio has been created to be different.
Beach Body Studio has been specifically designed to be a welcoming non-judgemental environment where you are much more than just another number in the system. You will become part of our family community. We want to get to know YOU as an individual. Whether your goal is to drop a dress size, lose a specific amount of weight, gain a booty, make friends, deal with grief, take part in a race or even become an upcoming bodybuilder, our purpose is to guide you on your way and make you feel better about yourself on that journey. Our fabulous instructors are hand-picked for their warmth, friendliness and understanding as well as their expertise and qualifications.
I absolutely love teaching and interacting with all the different people who attend the variety of sessions available at Beach Body Studio. It brings me great pleasure to see the lovely women and men who train with us develop their confidence, fitness, health and physiques.
