Practitioner Highlight of the Week

EricaERICA SOMA

Where are you originally from?

I grew up in sunny Santa Cruz, California. I went to college at Willamette University in Salem, Oregon and moved to Boston for   graduate school at Northeastern University. I thought I would have fun in Boston for the year and a half MS program, and almost five years later I am still here!

What is your favorite activity outside of OMBE?

I have completed 7 marathons including 3 Boston Marathons, I rock climb at a facility in Somerville, and I am learning how to play golf. I like to stay active and moving, especially on beautiful days!

Where is your "happy place"?

Some of my favorite places to go are the Public Garden, running along the Charles on a beautiful day, Westcliff Drive in Santa Cruz, California, and anywhere in Norway or with my family.

What service do you offer at OMBE?

I specialize in working with prenatal and postnatal clients, so offering group classes at OMBE has always been something I was aiming for. I teach Mom & Baby Fitness as well as Prenatal Fitness on Tuesdays and Thursdays! These classes are expectant and new- mom friendly.

What is your favorite quote?

"Treat your body as an instrument, not as an object." -Unknown

What is your favorite aspect of personal training?

I love the change that happens over time with clients. My favorite days come from when a client comes in and surprises me with a newfound positive and confident outlook. Sometimes it is somebody improving dramatically in an exercise like push ups, and then I get a shy explanation that she has been practicing; other times it's a personal record in a marathon. I love reflecting with clients how six months or two years ago, they never could have dreamed of being where they are now.

I believe that I give all of my clients the tools to be successful in reaching their individual goals, and at some point they will realize they CAN, they take the reigns, and then they DO. I find this to be longer lasting, and way more empowering for every individual I work with.
