MINDSET

Your mindset is everything! The mindset of an athlete means you have a love for hard work, competition and crushing goals no matter what it takes!

LIFESTYLE

Being an athlete isn't something that you turn on and off. It's a lifestyle that is driven by your personal goals. Whatever they may be!

DEDICATION

Dedication is greater than motivation! You can fall in and out of motivation on a weekly basis. Dedication means you're making the hard decisions even when you don't want to. 

Rewarding

Running like an athlete is hard work, yet the end result is so rewarding! Nothing in life worth doing is easy. Through challenge comes change.

Tim Myers

Sonya... has improved the form, speed and comfort of my running. Her experience, drills and attention to detail have turned my running from unfocused to efficient. Both my explosiveness and stamina have increased, and I keep returning to learn more and improve.

Amanda Graves

I had rudimentary knowledge of running and horrible shin splints... and now I run pain free! She corrected my form and has shown me how to prevent future shin splints. She provided the encouragement and knowledge I needed to keep going, improving my form and endurance. She's amazing!

 I no longer have chronic knee pain when I run, something I thought I just had to get used to, and she even shaved 30 seconds off my mile time just by making my stride more efficient!
