About SJ Mind Body Training
My name is Sarah and I have been a Personal Trainer for over 15 years. My passion in life is to empower women and help them feel great about themselves. This is my drive and what inspires me to be an example of health.
My story begins when I was about 19 years old. I had some major surgery on a tumour in my neck that required months of rehabilitation afterwards. This was when my love of the gym began. I loved the way exercise made me feel and how I could create a different body by doing weights and cardio. I did some travel in my early 20’s which resulted in a lot of weight gain (as you can see from the first picture!). When I returned to Australia I was on a mission to lose weight and as I achieved some great results I started to notice that I could inspire others to exercise and decided to become a Personal Trainer. I completed my course and worked in a gym gaining more experience and growing as a trainer. I loved working with my clients and seeing the amazing transformations!
In 2011 I became pregnant with my first child and I put on a lot of weight (over 20kgs in fact!). After I had my son in June 2012 I wanted to go back to feeling good again so set about to lose the weight that I had put on. I actually found it easier than ever this time, something had shifted in me and the weight easily fell off. I lost 30kg and was now 10kg lighter than when I fell pregnant. I felt like I was in the best shape I’d been in my entire life and I was 35 years old! During this time I had learnt to drop the obsession with food, to learn to eat when I was hungry and stop constantly snacking. I also reduced my portions dramatically and stopped the cycle of binge eating followed by restriction of food.
When I fell pregnant with my daughter in 2014 I put on another 25kg (I don’t have fun pregnancies!). After she was born I then slowly took the weight off again until I reached the weight I was before I fell pregnant with her. It took a little longer second time around but it still came off and I am now at a weight that I am really happy with.
In 2015 after working at a gym as a Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor for over 13 years I decided I wanted to branch out on my own and create the perfect program for my clients running my own business. I wanted my clients to be able to come to me for their training sessions but still gain all of my knowledge around food and mindset so I came up with the SJ Mind Body Training Program. The program has been designed with a holistic approach that covers training, mindset, nutrition and ongoing support. Clients can attend 2 or 3 sessions per week with me and then receive emails every week to learn about hunger, portions, eating out, etc. Clients also have access to my membership site with over $500 of free bonuses including recipes, exercise plans, mindset work and much more. Over 60 amazing women have now completed the SJ Mind Body Training program and the results have been incredible. I feel that with all of the extra support women are much more likely to succeed in their journey to feel great and create a healthy life.
My dream has now become a reality and I am living my passion to inspire other woman to break free from limitations and create lasting results. Scroll down the bottom and register your details to receive a Free Group Personal Training Session and take the first step toward permanent change!
