Interview with FITBOOK Beach Camp Trainer Sonja Ehrlich- FITBOOK

Swing gracefully through the air, seemingly weightless dangling from fabrics – what looks like an impressive acrobatic act is called Flying Pilates. It was invented by personal trainer and Pilates trainer Sonja Ehrlich. It will bring the extraordinary sport to the participants of the FITBOOK Beach Camp, which will take place in Crete from September 30 to October 7, and show them how to reach new heights of fitness with Flying Pilates.

The business administration graduate has been a trainer since 2007. In 2012, Sonja Ehrlich developed the Flying Pilates training concept, which she will offer in courses at her studio in Hamburg and also at the FITBOOK Beach Camp. The special feature: with Flying Pilates you float around the room on attached towels. The sport combines elements of Pilates, functional fitness, suspension training, and aerial acrobatics, making for a unique training experience. Muscles are strengthened, joints are more flexible and posture is improved. In addition to concentration and body tension, Flying Pilates also requires and promotes a high degree of balance and strength, and a bit of confidence.
