—Teaches Tabata, HIIT and Zumba 
Sara’s creativity never stops and it shows because “ I love my job! “  As an ACE Certified Personal Trainer, it is tremendously rewarding to work in the fitness industry and help people reach their fitness goals. She has had the privilege of working with people of all fitness levels from beginners to athletes. As a group fitness instructor and personal trainer, enjoyment comes the most through educating and motivating people to move past the obstacles that arise throughout their journey and encouraging them to feel good about the progress they make along the way.
Over the past 22 years, Sara has had a variety of awesome roles in the fitness industry, such as teaching group fitness classes to adults, teens, and children, personal training, mentoring new instructors, directing group fitness programs, and presenting fitness education workshops. In 1994, she began teaching group fitness classes while attending George Mason University (Fairfax, VA). Sara had so much fun instructing that she continued teaching as a hobby after graduating with her Bachelors degree in Psychology. While furthering her education with a Masters degree in Human Resource Management and Development, Sara’s group fitness classes brought even more enjoyment and focus during stressful times. Around 2006, fitness became more than just a hobby when the position to be the Group Fitness Director at a local gym was offered to her. Shortly thereafter, she became a certified personal trainer and has enjoyed teaching and personal training for the past 8 years.

Favorite Inspirational Quote:
What is our deepest fear?

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?  We are all meant to shine, as children do. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
