Hi I am Sara Russert, a NASM Certified Personal Trainer and Corrective Exercise Specialist. I have been Vegan for 20 years and had a previous career as a baker and private chef/caterer. My passion for food and cooking has resulted in me taking a great interest in nutrition, and more specifically sports nutrition. I am certified by Dot Fit in Nutrition and have done a lot of additional education on my own.
My dad was a competitive natural bodybuilder when I was growing up so I started my relationship with lifting weights at an early age. The gym feels like a second home to me and I want it to feel like a comfortable place for you.
For the past 5 years I have been competing in natural women’s bodybuilding and raw powerlifting. I love having a goal to strive for, it helps me stay motivated and work to constantly improve. I feel like a clear goal is the first step to success with fitness, and I love to help people set goals and get results.
Currently I am competing between the 60kg and 63kg weight classes in Raw Powerlifting. I am working towards a double bodyweight squat at my next meet and am thrilled to have qualified for USAPL Nationals at my first meet of the year. What I love about powerlifting is learning how to mentally relax while I physically struggle and the mini rewards of setting personal records and seeing small weight increases frequently. I also like that the focus isn’t on losing fat but instead on gaining strength.
