Sarah is highly competitive by nature so it’s no surprise that she came to Crossfit True by way of a PTA challenge at her sons school. As a stay at home mom to two little ones it was a challenge in and of itself to chisel away time for herself to get to the gym. After winning the challenge, she took her prize money and invested it back into Crossfit. Coming from a more powerlifting focused program to Crossfit was both a blessing and a curse. She learned that strength can only get you so far and technique is crucial. She loved the challenge of finding balance and becoming a more rounded athlete that Crossfit offered. Around this time, as luck would have it, True Athletics was looking to expand their coaching staff. Sarah was eager to learn everything she could about Crossfit. While shadowing the coaches and watching the athletes, Crossfit True quickly became home to Sarah. She loved the community and camaraderie. She noticed an unspoken rule of Crossfit; Equality. No matter your sex, age or body type, everyone at True Athletics was an athlete. It was never spoken, it was so inherently known that it didn’t need to be. Sarah knew this was where she belonged.
Sarah enjoys deadlifting, benching, spending time upside down and avoiding running. However, she has been known to run when there is beer waiting at the finish line.
Her favorite workout is Crossfit Open 16.4 a 13-minute chipper with 55 reps per movement. The movements included deadlifts, wall balls, rowing, and handstand push-ups. She loved this workout so much that she repeated it 3 times in 2016 and twice when it reappeared in the2017 Open. Thus proving her awareness of her worth and ability. She strives for progress over perfection and is relentless in her pursuit of satisfaction.
She and her husband Jeremy are doing their best to raise two strong, independent, health conscience and fitness minded kiddos, Jeremy and Olive.
