19 Feb Meet Sarah
Sarah is a personal trainer and group fitness instructor at GFFC. She is a gifted instructor and marketer; she’s also a new mama to baby Nora! Here are a few fun things about her!
What do you love?:
I love teaching people and inspiring them to strengthen and love their bodies. My favorite piece of workout equipment would have to be dumbbells. You can anything and everything with them! Working every part of your body. You can incorporate them with simple squats or make any exercise harder when you add weight.
Do you have a favorite workout song?:
My favorite workout song is anything by NEEDTOBREATHE! Anything with a good beat to distract me while I’m doing my cardio is perfect. I particularly love the song Great Night.
What’s your best gym tip to help maximize results and safety?:
One thing I always tell my clients is to keep their back straight and their knees slightly bent. If you’ve ever been to my classes or have trained with me, I am a stickler about this! It only takes one wrong movement to tweak a muscle.
Here’s a tip:
Keep that chin neutral when you’re lifting weights and slightly stick your chest out. There is nothing on the ground to look at! This will help to keep your back straight and help you to focus on the muscle group you’re working on.
The one exercise I always need to remind my clients of are bicep curls. Once they do a few, their muscles get tired and they start to hunch their shoulders, bringing their chest in and their chins go down. When they’re reminded to stick chest out and chin up they can get through it because they’re better able to breathe and have good form.
