Tell us about yourself!
My name is Brytten Sorgenfrei and I am 36 years old, married and a mother of two. I am a former college soccer player and Police Officer. I have always had fitness in my life as it was a “job” in college and then progressed in to needing to be in shape for my career.
Before and After
How did you find Studio?
In 2015, we moved from Nebraska to Washington, DC, where I became a stay at home mom and had our second child. I found myself no longer prioritizing my fitness/health and fell far off the wagon. In February of 2018 I found the Studio app via Facebook. I tried it for two weeks and instantly fell in love. I used the app to run my first 5K in many years. The app prepared me so well that I placed 3rd in my age group and ran one of my best 5Ks!
How would you describe how you feel after class?
After every class, I feel accomplished and encouraged! The instructors make you feel that you can do anything, as long as you try your hardest. Their words of encouragement, personal shout outs, and member dedication provide me with a “never give up” attitude and make me strive to be better the next time.
How does Studio make you better (on and off the treadmill)?
There’s something mentally freeing about committing to 30-45 minutes several days a week to Studio that makes me a better wife, mom and friend. The confidence I have gained from this app has not only helped me on my fitness journey but in my life outside of the treadmill.
How is Studio different than any other workout?
Studio is different than any workout class I’ve taken because it’s on YOUR TIME! You decide when you want to work out, no waiting for a class to start, no schedule to follow, no full classes.
There are literally NO EXCUSES as to why you can’t get a workout in with Studio. There is something for everyone!
Overall, how has Studio changed your lifestyle?
Studio has changed my lifestyle because I now love to run. I have always been a sprinter, but I now find myself wanting to try longer runs up to 4 miles! Before Studio, I would have never ran 3-4 miles on a treadmill/outside, but now I am doing it 3 or 4 times a week!!
The Studio family is like non-other. I have never been in a more encouraging fitness group than this one. Someone is always there to pick you back up if you’ve fallen down, to encourage you and tell you you’ll be okay. This app ALWAYS shows up for you, the instructors are constantly evolving and challenging you to be the best you can be.
I am confident that if I hadn’t found Studio, I would have still been in the same unhappy place I was when before I started. I would have been gym hopping and finding every single excuse as to why I couldn’t get a workout in.
