"WHAT SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE TODAY WILL SOON BECOME YOUR WARM-UP"
"I stopped trying and I started training. Training is consistent. I became my own motivation when I saw how amazing I looked and felt about myself in the mirror"

here it goes...
I did not always look like an "athlete". In 2013 I weighed 226 pounds. I was extremely unhappy with my outer appearance. I could not grasp how I let my weight get out of control. So I decided to make a commitment to myself to look and feel better by losing weight. I changed my diet and ran every day, within three months I lost 32 pounds.
My progression plateaued because of my monotonous regimen until I came across CrossFit in Summer 2014. I did it for about 2 weeks and I was sore every day of that two week period. At the time, I never knew my muscles could get sore or what it meant to experience muscle fatigue. Though I was becoming accustomed to a different approach to working out I gave it up. I picked it back up in 2015 and stuck with it. I ended up losing about 60 pounds. I enjoyed my new look and workout challenge, I got better at CrossFit and started competing. I enjoyed the team aspect of the sport. I was competing against myself with a room full of people that were doing the same. I would finish workouts fast and instead of going home I stayed and encouraged the other athletes to finish the tough workout. Coaching and encouraging my peers came naturally and I felt good doing it. I noticed that coaching and encouraging others to do their best was my calling.
After much prayer, God revealed to me my purpose in life. It is to love and encourage others the same way I did for myself and still continue to do. I decided to start my own fitness training business in December 2016, Sprint. Squat. Slay. , my very own mantra for fitness and everyday life. Women get mixed ideas of what weight training is and my goal is to educate, empower, and inspire women of all ages, colors, and sizes to get out of their comfort zone and push past physical limits in order to reach their goals. I am adamant about expressing and promoting mental, spiritual, and physical health in order to become a better version of myself. For me, fitness is more than just working out to look and feel good, it's about maintaining a consistent and healthy lifestyle. Sprint. Squat. Slay. evolved into Sarah Jane Fitness. Sarah Jane Fitness represents the numerous ways a person can achieve strength just by moving. I recognize how tough a fitness journey can be which is why I find it extremely important to educate my clients about developing a balanced nutritional regimen in order to maintain a balanced lifestyle.
