What you'll do

You can do this workout at home, but that doesn’t mean it'll be easy.

Get ready to feel the burn with a Paralympian. I'll start things off by introducing myself and sharing a bit about my Paralympic journey, from medaling in Rio to training for Tokyo. Then we’ll dive right into the workout, mixing cardio with strength-building exercises to get your heart rate going.

This high-intensity interval training doesn’t require anything other than your body. With no equipment needed, you can easily participate.

Let’s get strong together—you’ll leave feeling refreshed, energized, and inspired.

I was born with a form of dwarfism known as achondroplasia, which has a one in 26,000 chance of occurring. I’m currently training for the 2020 Paralympic Games in Tokyo, but my Paralympic story has roots in Rio. In the 2016 Paralympics, I won the silver medal swimming the 100m breaststroke and placed sixth in the 200m individual medley. I’m also a two-time world champion, five-time world medalist, and three-time National Team member.

When I’m not swimming, I enjoy painting, reading, and exploring the outdoors.

I enjoyed the experience with Sophia, especially hearing her stories from the Olympics. The workout was a great way to start the day and get my heartrate going. Sophia was friendly, patient, and open to answering questions. She also offered alternate exercises for participants with injuries.

Sophia was open and friendly and answered a lot of my curiosities around being an Olympian. It was great to be able to connect with someone who has gone through this very, unique experience. The workout got my heart rate going and I learned a couple of new core exercises. Thanks for hosting, Sophia!

Loved getting to work out, then chat with an interesting person in-between breaks, AND support Team USA a bit. What are you waiting for?!

This was such a great way to start my day! I would absolutely recommend it. It got me sweating but wasn't crazy hard (probably because Sophia adapted for me once I started breathing pretty hard early on, haha). Sophia was wonderful. I really enjoyed getting to chat with her between sets and hearing her stories as a Paralympian athlete.

It was a good and effective workout for a midday boost of energy. It was also my first time meeting a Paralympian and it was exciting to hear about Sophia’s experiences.

What an awesome and unique experience! We did a team workout with Sophia and thoroughly enjoyed not only the exercise but the time we were able to spend with her as well. It's not everyday you get to spend time learning from a Paralympic medalist, and Sophia made sure our team not only enjoyed the workout but took time to answer the many questions we had about her and what it means to be a US Paralympian. I highly recommend this as either a personal activity or something fun to do with your family or colleagues. Sophia is a great teacher!
