OWNER & NASM CPT
Growing up in a family that was active helped build a foundation for movement in Sonja’s life. Skiing in the winter every weekend, running with her father (at first biking next to him until she could keep up) and playing basketball were just a few of the ways she was inspired by play. She was happiest when playing sports and being physical. She was in middle school when she got her first personal trainer, a family friend who saw the power house she was and knew that she just needed a bit of guidance.
While she studied pre-law in college she began training her friends. She was consistent in her practice of movement and those around her were inspired by her hard work and dedication. After college, while working for law firms, she began to intern with trainers she admired. She knew that, even though she believed she would follow in her father’s footsteps and become a lawyer, destiny had other plans. Fitness was what she looked forward to everyday. Fitness was what she enjoyed most of all and, as the shine of the legal field faded, she knew that she was meant to do something else.
In February 2015 she opened up Demco Fitness and a community was born. As a trainer Sonja pulls, not only from her previous experience interning, but also from her years of being an athlete. She is innovative and dedicated. She challenges her clients to get outside of their comfort zone and she gets results. She has, over the last 3 years, grown her business and has begun to build her training team. She never stops setting goals for herself or her business and never stops reaching them.
