I'm Sarah Smith.
I coach busy women and overwhelmed mommas to find their strength, and improve gut and pelvic floor health to optimize fitness performance and physique change!
I work in-person in Raleigh, North Carolina AND online with women all over the world to help them achieve their goals for healthy, fit, functioning bodies and better quality lifestyles.
Women need MORE than just diet and exercise advice.
They need practical, logical and efficient programming that helps invigorates them and gives them the confidence and vitality they desire!
I'm a certified personal trainer, a Level 2 Russian Kettlebell Certified Instructor, Postnatal Fitness Specialist (with a concentration on pelvic floor and pelvic organ prolapse) and functionally trained gut health expert with an MS in Soil Science (because food, dirt, and farm animals!).
Before becoming a strength coach, I spent 15 years conducting and publishing research on cancer and environmental microbiology and urban agriculture for diverse populations, at the National Institutes of Health, University of Arizona and North Carolina State University.
I make it a point to provide my clients with evidence-based strategies for problem solving, which is why my blog posts are filled with citations to peer-reviewed literature and the latest research!
If you follow me on social media, you'll see me putzing around my mini farm with chickens, pigs, my 3 kids, our English bulldog Bella!
I'm also a wife to a buggeek, a kettlebell junkie, and lover of coffee, bulldogs, sweatpants, fires, and my Creator.
I work online and in-person with folks located in Raleigh, North Carolina.
