Her passion for helping people find themselves again amongst the hustle and bustle is evident in her unique combination of active exercise like Reformer & Mat Pilates, and mindfulness practises such as meditation and breath work.

Meet the Founder



" Sarah has completely transformed my life. I went to Sarah with back pain and no strength in my body. Now I can move freely, am stronger than I’ve been and my back pain is minimal. I can’t thank Sarah enough for what she has done for my body and my mental health. "

 - Cheree Pattison

" I felt comfortable with Sarah from our first meeting. I have been attending Personal Training with her for 12 months now, and she has helped me regain my strength and fitness after a foot injury. She easily adjusts my workouts when I have had back or neck issues, and always makes sure to not aggravate it more. Sarah is so passionate about helping you reach your goals and is very knowledgeable with all things to do with your body and fitness. I cannot recommend Sarah highly enough. "

 - Kim & Nick Vanderkley

" My husband and I can’t thank Sarah enough for helping us get fit and healthy again. Both of us have had to rehab back into fitness from medical illnesses and Sarah has been amazing through the whole process. We have been attending group classes, personal one-on-one training and massage sessions for nearly a year now. Sarah is professional, knowledgeable and most importantly supportive and friendly. She tailors her workouts to individual needs, even in a group setting. We highly recommend Sarah for anyone thinking of getting back into health and fitness or even someone just starting out, she will definitely help you achieve your goals. "
