ABOUT SONIA SONIQUE SMITH...
First and foremost, I am a very proud mother to two beautiful and talented young men and although they have certainly kept me very busy, throughout my life I have always had a need to help others succeed within their goals.
My passion has always been to motivate and inspire people and coming from a sporting and musical background I wanted to create something that would combine them all. I was confident that a career in fitness training would allow me to fulfil this while continuing to be a caring and supportive mum to my boys.
I have always had an abundance of crazy, infectious energy with a positive outlook on life and I knew that this would allow me the opportunity to change people's attitudes and help them to become fitter, healthier and happier whilst also growing in confidence.
Since launching Sonique Fitness in 2010, I have to say it has been an incredible journey for me. I learn so many new things every day and I have been lucky enough to meet some of the most amazing fitness professionals along the way.
AIthough I have been involved within and taught various platforms, it wasn't until 2014 when the new dance fitness concept Clubbercise burst into the fitness industry that I found my true calling, it was simply love at first dance and from then on I have never looked back. After becoming the 6th ever instructor to become certified Claire Burlison (Co-founder and Brand Director) offered me an amazing opportunity and I became the very first 'Master Trainer' for the brand.
I have since been promoted 'UK Lead Master Trainer' and 'International Presenter' which has allowed me more responsibility and a direct role within the brand. There are roughly 80,000 people taking regular classes with more than 2,000 instructors across the UK, Europe and Asia and we're currently spreading our glow in Australia.
