Meet The Boss: Simone Sobers
Ladies: Have you ever met someone who inspires you to work out, get healthy, do business, help others, and be a better woman for yourself and the ones around you while you feel sexy and have fun in the process? This is how I feel about Simone “The Boss” Sobers.
I met Simone a year ago through my client and friend Sandra Acosta from PerForm Studio, a dance fitness space in my beloved Miami, FL. You know you are doing things right when your clients refer you to new clients, and in this case, when God puts you in touch with determined women with clear goals like these two.
Simone “The Boss” Sobers, 31, is the creator of The Boss Chick Dance Workout™, a 60-minute high intensity hip hop, dance hall, and afrobeats fusion twerkout for women only that consists of:
- 40-minute Dance Cardio Set
- 5-minute H.I.I.T (High Intensity Interval Abs and Strength Training)
- 10-minute Choreography
- 5-minute Cool Down
While other workouts focus only on one rhythm, The Boss Chick Dance Workout™ features dance combinations set to the music and styles of three of them along with an abs series and stretch series! In addition to having a great time dancing the hour away, you sculpt your abs, arms, legs, and buttocks while you burn up to 1000+ calories!
Given the high rates of obesity and heart disease among women Simone inspires women to get healthy. There are not many Black women on the forefront or the face of health & fitness and Simone “The Boss” Sobers is changing that with The Boss Chick Dance Workout™!
“The Boss” takes the first step and makes the first move towards her dreams, that is why she is destined to success. She knows no barriers, as she speaks the universal language of music and dance. Since its inception in July 2013, The Boss Chick Dance Workout™ has reached thousands of ladies worldwide through Masterclasses in Miami, Atlanta, New York City, Philadelphia, London, Madrid, Bogotá, and Brussels. Regular classes are currently held in Miami, New York City, Houston, San Antonio, Morris Plains, Atlanta, Gainesville, Philadelphia, and London.
A native of London, raised in beautiful South Florida, Simone started her classical dance training 24 years ago and since then she has studied a wide variety of styles at notable institutions around the world such as New York University, Alvin Ailey School, and Netherlands Dance Theatre. A dance teacher of 15 years, always striving to excel in her already successful career, she received a M.F.A. in Dance from New York University Tisch School of Arts in 2010. In 2011, she instructed at Debbie Allen’s Dance Academy in Los Angeles. After growing interest and a booming fan base with her fitness vlog, The New Sexy, she also became a certified personal trainer by the American Council on Exercise® (ACE). In 2012, Simone was invited to train and work with Madonna and her team of dance and fitness professionals at Hard Candy Fitness. This was Sobers’ first taste of dance fitness and it was instrumental in her development as a Dance Fitness instructor: She got inspired to start up her own dance fitness program. The Hard Candy Fitness experience paired with her passion for dance, her love for personal training and the H.I.I.T. format plus her strong interest in women’s issues became the key ingredients for an exciting fusion: The Boss Chick Dance Workout™.
Being a dance freak myself, I am the kind of woman who always felt like being a backup dancer, but with The Boss Chick Dance Workout™ I feel like the lead performer, like a star! But, don’t take my word for it, please check out these features: Shape Magazine, Channel 7 News: Style File, Racked Miami, Gypsy Jaunt, and Your Fashion Highness.

“I wanted to create a workout around something that we identify with: hip-hop and pop culture. All of the hip-hop and pop divas possess a strong feminine identity and nature present in their performances. Everything about them screams FEMALE Power. They are major influences that help sculpt our routines for The Boss Chick Dance Workout™. I love meeting new women all over the world who fall in love with it.
