“I am definitely getting stronger!”

Thank you to Sarah for her exercise program. My right sided hip pain is gone. I have followed her exercise recommendation (daily) and I am definitely getting stronger! I see my massage therapist once a month and she was please! Me too!

“Everything you could ever want in a coach”

I started training with Sarah to help prepare for the Tom Quilty Cup in Australia in 2019 – but no way was I going to stop after the event was over! Knowledgeable, energetic, kind, and hilariously funny…Sarah is everything you could ever want in a coach.

“An invaluable resource”

While training for the Mongol Derby, Sarah was an invaluable resource. Between her top-notch horses and her wealth of knowledge on rider fitness, I felt well prepared going into the race.
