In 2018, North Texas resident and fitness expert, Sonja Bowman started the Whole You Experience, which is a health and fitness training program that can literally be done anywhere. With weight and health issues on the rise and many Americans noting weight gain, often referred to as “the quarantine 15,” in reference to weight gained during the COVID-19 pandemic, Sonja was inspired to modify the program that initially began in the gym and created a solution that would help people get fit and make healthier choices, right from their living room.
The Whole You Experience has been so well-received that Bowman is now rolling the concept out as a virtual event to provide needed resources and speakers to stay healthy mentally, physically, and spiritually during the COVID-19 quarantine.
The Whole You Experience Virtual Event will be held on Saturday, August 8, 2020. Speakers will include nutritional coach, Jacqui Samuels, inspirational coach and local pastor, Ray Taylor and fitness expert, Sonja Bowman. There will also be a special interview session with mental health expert, Dr. Anita Phillips, a licensed therapist, and national leading authority. This session is especially critical as statistics have shown a rise in depression, suicide, domestic violence, child abuse, crime and many other issues related to mental health since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. This session will provide tips and resources on how to cope, survive and thrive during this unprecedented time.
“I’m naturally an encourager and with so many family members and friends who’ve had heart attacks, strokes, and suffered from other medical issues, I wanted to be a voice that helped them be proactive and get their bodies moving,” said Bowman. “I have a tremendous passion for helping others and now I’m helping them improve their whole beings one step at a time.”
In addition to the at-home fitness workouts, Sonja hosts a virtual 5K, called 5K with Sonja, every first Friday of the month and also uses her extensive experience to provide practical tips that work on how to stay healthy during COVID-19, tips that could ultimately save lives.
