Sara Showleh

Eat green, train mean! The power of a plant-based diet and exercise transformed me from a junk food addicted couch potato into a pole fitness athlete, martial artist and weightlifter. Seeing how incredible it feels to eat without restricting calories and reach my fat loss and performance goals made me passionate about guiding others along their fitness journey. Through my continuous study in the fields of physical fitness and nutrition, I learned what it takes to see results and keep them in the long term. With a degree in psychology, I understand the principles of motivation. I empower my clients with the most up-to-date, relevant information and techniques, personalized to fit their individual aspirations. Together, we are bound to be successful.
