I'm 53 and married with 3 kids and work full time in a somewhat stressful job. Over the last 6 months I’ve let this get in the way of my health goals.
I started working with Sarah to develop mechanisms and habits to deal with my stress so that I could implement healthy nutrition and movement into my schedule.
Although I had a “healthy” diet and would jump on my Peloton a fair amount, Sarah helped me understand that if I didn't deal with my stress, I was not going to be successful with these other measures.
Sarah helped me with mindful eating, and MOST importantly with shifting my mind set with small steps towards my bigger goals, helping me reach them!
Sarah meets her clients where they’re at, understanding that everyone is different and going to respond to different prompts and motivations. She knows how to push just enough and without forcing.
I know it can be hard to invest time and money into yourself, but Sarah will help you understand that if you can't make these changes and invest in yourself, you are not going to be able to provide support to your family, friends, and job, and if that isn't worth it I don't know what is!"
JOSYLYNN & EDDIE MARINI
My husband and I have known Chris and Sarah for over a decade and we have weathered storms together. From Rockaway Beach where it all began, storming back after their gym was destroyed by hurricane Sandy in 2012 and all the experiences thereafter.
Chris and Sarah have been a huge support system and mentor to us for many years, having helped us mentally and physically overcome huge obstacles that life threw our way.
Over the years, we have had a lot of ups and downs with our health journey. We now have 3 kids, moved from New York to South Carolina and the weight of the hustle and bustle took us off track.
We endured a lot during this Pandemic and we have let ourselves go quite a bit. Going out to eat all of the time, drinking a ton of soda, eating junk, going to bed late. The list goes on.
My husband works 2 full-time jobs and I am a stay-at-home mom. And it tends to feel like there is absolutely 0 time left in a day.
I was finding myself eating cold waffles off of small unfinished plates because I was just too tired. By the end of the day, our energy levels were completely depleted and “tomorrow” was just another auto pilot day.
We joined the 12 week program with Chris and Sarah to help us get out of this rut we were in and get started on our mental and physical health journey. Training our mindset gave us an opportunity to focus on our behavior first and foremost.
The weekly coaching calls helped us stay in our lane and mindful of the goals we are trying to achieve, helping us stay accountable. We were even able to get through all of the holidays remaining active and setting new goals.
Sarah helped us pay attention to our hunger cues, listening to our bodies when we were hungry and not snacking out of boredom.
Sarah helped us stay determined on one small goal at a time, maintaining a healthy lifestyle of eating, which then gave us the energy to help take on our days.
My favorite part about working with Chris and Sarah is there's ZERO judgement. There are days that will be harder than others and they guide us to pick up where we left off. Chris would remind me that every day is a new beginning. If you fall off one day (even a few days), it is okay. We are human. We picked up where we left off knowing it’s okay to start again.
We truly understand it is hard to set goals for yourself sometimes because life gets tangled and busy, but if you do not PUT YOURSELF FIRST, you can not be 100 percent for everyone else in your life or the world.
Chris and Sarah have made such an impact on our journey and if you too need guidance and are struggling, reach out your hand. I promise they will pull you out.
Well, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
