“When I reached 200 lbs, that was it. I knew I had to lose weight. I had also begun to notice that just going up a flight of stairs was tiring! I knew just changing my diet would not be enough to achieve my goals: Lose weight and feel healthier. Sarah developed a workout program for me to use in addition to my change in diet. I have lost 50 lbs and no, it was not easy, but it has been worth the effort. I went down 5 sizes (from size 20 to size 10), and I definitely do not tire going up 1 flight of stairs. I look and feel much better than I had. Sarah has changed my workout program a couple of times as needed to continue on my path to being a healthier me!”

I am your typical 40-something year old professional. I want to live healthy, but sometime the pressures of life get in the way with my goal to exercise and live a healthy lifestyle. I started working with Sarah about 3 years ago, and because of her, I have been able to change my life (cliché, but true!).My regular time with Sarah helps me to stay focused. Committing to her means that I have to schedule my work out times regularly, even when life gets hectic. I see the results of the commitment. Exercising gives me more energy and helps me to sleep at night. I am grateful that I have signed up; it forces me to make exercise a priority.Sarah helps me to exceed my goals, she teaches me to use the equipment safely, and is trustworthy and professional.I thought I knew a bit about lifting weights, but I have learned better ways to lift. Watching Sarah and through her coaching, I have learned to lift safely. I particularly appreciate it, not even so much because of the injury as much as the recovery time! Lifting weights safely has helped me to build muscle without injury.Finally, I’ve learned that having a coach means developing a trusting relationship. I trust Sarah and am able to tell her when I’ve hit bumps with my motivation. She provides me with excellent coaching so that I am able to accomplish my goals.As I look back on the past three years, I am a healthier, stronger person because of Sarah. Every moment I’ve worked with her has come back to me three-fold.
Being a fitness instructor your students are always looking to you to be in your best shape possible. In order to do that, cross training is a necessity. Sarah used a mixture of Pilates techniques to really fine tune to what my body needed. Her background in physical therapy helped her to know what techniques would and would not work for me. Sarah herself is in phenomenal shape, so I knew what she was teaching me she was also practicing herself. She is the ultimate professional and I would recommend her, and have, to anyone who wants to look their best.
