We think this lady is pretty special and we want to share her with the rest of our Crew. 

Sarah has been working so hard on dialing in her nutrition and fitness. It has been incredible watching her transformation while working with our FH Nutrition Coach, Jess Mullen, RD. Please take a moment to get to know Sarah.

Q: Where can you be found outside of the gym? What do you do for a living?

S: Riding my bike and planning my next great adventure. I do executive communications at Google, which isn't as glamorous as it sounds but I do have some hilarious stories (one of which involves Alex Rodriguez).

Q: How'd you find out about FUELhouse?

S: I am an old Class Passer! I had just moved to Seattle 4 years ago and was forcing myself to find a new gym even though I didn't want to. Class Pass was the only way I could try and bunch of different stuff without having to commit to anything but I fell in love with FUELHouse, quit Class Pass and started full time. Brit (Mercer) and I were both Class Passers and we literally started on the exact same day!

Q: What makes you commit to training even on days you don't feel like it?

S: Honestly, it is the people/community. The coaches are great but when it is hot and I don't want to workout, I think about all of the other folks I like to catch up with and how I will miss working out with them and I get my butt to the gym and do it. I love being there and over time watching folks achieving their goals. I truly believe we all care about each other because I have been in the gym when we are all cheering someone on for their PR. And just this morning I was having an awesome morning and if I hustled I could complete the workout in under a certain minute marker. As I was leaving for my final run, I heard someone yell, "you got this Sarah." The whole thing is just special.

Q: What's your favorite movement/workout?

S: There are some haters out there but I personally love wall balls and slam balls. I set a goal a year ago that I can't do anything less than the 20lbs for slam balls and I am hoping to eventually make it to the same level for wall balls...not quite there yet. That sucker is heavy.

Q: What's one thing you'd like to accomplish at FUELhouse in the next year or have you already accomplished this goal and if so what is it (fitness/nutrition/mindset related)? If you have already accomplished this main goal how does it make you feel? How about in your personal life?

S: I set out in January 2019 to really commit and focus on eating better and working out more consistently (I am sure this sounds familiar). But, for me at least, combining working out at Fuel and working with Jess to figure out the nutrition side finally helped me results. Since January, I have managed to drop about 10lbs but I think more importantly I am starting to see better results in the gym because I am learning how to eat the right combinations of things to better prepare and recover from my workouts. I am never going to be a TSCer (you all are amazing to me!) but I like feeling myself get stronger and using FUELHouse to fuel (see what I did there?) the rest of my life from going farther on my bike/riding more miles, to carrying a heavier backpacking pack and overnight camping more, to thru hiking the Enchantments and Grand Canyon (all big goals for me this summer).

Q: What's the most delicious meal you've eaten recently?

S: I cook all the time so I eat good food all of the time! :) I just made this cod coconut red curry dish that was pretty amazing. Basically my instagram is entirely food-based.

Q: We also need to know the name of your very first pet, and the name of the street you grew up on!  This will be your official stage name.

S: Mine is so good! It is Puff Diamond.
