Fitness was always part of her life, but her enthusiasm for fitness and wellness was reignited when she completed both a nutrition and fitness plan without giving up or making excuses and achieved amazing results. In order to be successful and achieve results, it is important to have discipline, consistency, positive thinking, accountability and encouragement. As a result, this inspired her to help others achieve their own personal health and fitness goals because she believes that accountability is key to success.
Sarah is motivating and compassionate, and wants her clients to feel accomplished and empowered after every session. She enjoys creating exercise programs tailored to each client with a focus on functional training and mobility. She believes there aren’t many things in life that you can control, but you can control your attitude, your thoughts and your actions. Sarah encourages her clients to take control of their health and wellness by nurturing their personal fitness goals with guided instruction, positive support, and accountability.
Sarah is currently working toward becoming certified as a Senior Fitness Specialist. She is married to her husband, Paul, and together they have two children – a daughter in high school and a son in middle school.
