I have been Personal training in Harrogate for over ten years now and have had some great success with my clients over that time.
I love my job, being able to work closely with individuals to help them achieve their goals is what really motivates me. I completed University with a 2:1 degree in Sport Science in 2001 after studying modules such as motivation in sport psychology, weight management and exercise rehabilitation.
I love keeping fit myself and always aspire to continuously improve. I believe that training is all about being practical, functional and most of all enjoyable but results don’t come without just a little hard work!

Hi, I’m Sarah
I am originally from Louisiana, USA. After some time living in Africa and Japan, I have settled in Harrogate with my husband and our young daughter.
I started practising yoga over 6 years ago whilst I was living in Japan. I had never really been sporty but was looking for something to improve my fitness, plus help me to reconnect and relax in the fast paced city environment. I continued to practice with various yoga teachers over the years, before making the decision to become a teacher 2 years ago.
I believe I’m a very responsive and considerate teacher. I understand that starting yoga can seem like quite a daunting and embarrassing experience, it certainly did for me!
