Soupar Sovidaray, better known as Soup, has been friends with Emerson Doyle since kindergarten. When Emerson opened the Creative Arts Center many years ago, it was a natural fit for Soup to offer morning fitness boot camps. Soup is certified as a trainer by the National Academy of Sports and Medicine. He has more than 15 years of experience as a personal trainer, having worked a number of local gyms. When EvolveAll moved to the larger location in 2014, Soup joined his childhood friend to help him grow the fitness program.
Soup’s fitness journey began as a high school athlete, playing football, lacrosse and throwing shot-put in track. He spent a lot of time working out and learned about nutritional supplements to support his conditioning. Because he had a strict regiment, his friends relied on him for advice on training and nutrition.
“That’s how I started,” Soup recalled. “I like helping people and people started asking me for help.”
Today, Soup leads the popular bootcamp fitness classes. He customizes each class to meet the needs of the participants and welcomes beginners as well as veteran athletes. His classes are fun, challenging, and he encourages everyone to push themselves, and each other to succeed.
“I like meeting new people, seeing them accomplish their goals, and helping them feeling better overall,” Soup explained. “When they’re training, people feel healthier, move better, and have more energy.”
“EvolveAll is a family, and it’s our community. Parents should take advantage of the fact that kids are doing something active, so they can do something active at the same time,” said Soup. “EvolveAll is a place for everybody to grow and be healthy.”
Soup is always available to answer any questions about fitness. Especially if you don’t know how to start your fitness journey.
