About Me

Hi, I’m Sara! I have worked in the fitness industry for nearly two decades. At the age of 20, resistance training and weight lifting became a regular part of my life. My desire to learn more led me to qualifying as a Gym Instructor, Personal Trainer and Strength & Conditioning Coach. Since then I have also qualified in Pre & Post Natal Exercise and GP Referrals.

Online Coaching

The benefits of working with a great coach is direction first of all, lots of people seem lost in their health and fitness journey. Lack of knowledge, time, money, low self esteem all lead to poor motivation or adherence to any program. Through my personalised online coaching program, I do my best to deliver an excellent service. My aim is to educate participants on how to exercise and why, not just show up and do it but to gain a real understanding so they can take that away with them for life. There are no quick fixes but knowledge is power and when you have a purpose you will be more dedicated to your why!

Sara brings a positive and upbeat energy to every session. She is such an effective motivator. Her classes are so much fun and go by so quickly. She understands the demands of her clients lives and creates bespoke plans which are tailored for your individual needs and goals. Highly recommend!

I would totally recommend Sara (Pretty Strong Fitness) as  Personal Trainer/Coach. I had never trained before so I was a bit apprehensive but there was no need to be. Sara wrote a PT programme tailored personally to me. She is very knowledgeable about general fitness, strength training and nutrition. She is a great supporter and motivator, keeping you on track with your goals! Sara helped me to change my life and my habits with regards to exercise and nutrition.

Sara is an expert coach, she takes time to work with individuals to build an effective programme to build strength and stamina. She gives clear guidance on the correct form and rationale behind each exercise as well as the impact they have on muscle groups. Sara is also an inspirational role model in the way she approaches her own fitness and healthy eating with such a positive mindset. Sara’s approach is not just focused on ways to achieve fitness, but a holistic lifestyle, recognising the importance of healthy eating, sleep and all forms of exercise to achieve optimal living. Sara is knowledgeable in all aspects of health and fitness and anyone working with her will benefit from her wealth of knowledge and experience, her personable style, and genuine drive and passion to help her clients achieve their fitness goals.


I started personal training with Sara just after Covid, when I’d gained weight and fell out of my normal routine. I’ve had short bursts of personal training before but nothing that lasted more than a few weeks. As soon as I started with Sara, she took the time to get to know me, my lifestyle, work life, struggles and my diet (being vegan I’d been told before that I’d have to drastically change my diet to get results). Sara educated me on healthy choices but more so about breaking habits and making sustainable choices.

I had very little experience in the gym before I started, but Sara taught me which ways to use machines, how to incorporate cardio, and how to keep myself safe, fit and healthy. I noticed changes in my body quickly and loved that I was starting to feel strong. It took very little time before I started to really enjoy going to PT and was already seeing multiple benefits: better sleep, more energy and I lost over 2 stone! Sara taught me a lot of healthy habits and taught me how to be consistent with exercise, meaning that I now don’t see it as a chore and enjoy a healthier life as a result!

I highly recommend Sara as a PT for all of the above reasons, but mostly because she makes the programmes enjoyable and specific to you!
