Carmical, Sarah

Level II Fitness Trainer / North Charleston SC.
Sarah’s interest in exercise and well-being began at an early age watching her mother’s skills as personal trainer and health educator. Through the years this interest blossomed into enjoying an active lifestyle. Outside a gym or studio setting Sarah enjoys activities such as exploring outdoors through means of hunting, fishing, horseback riding and maintaining a personal yoga practice. In order to perpetuate such an active lifestyle, Sarah understands the need to have endurance, strength, flexibility, and stability to create a unified system as the muscles and joints work together.
A College of Charleston graduate with a degree in Health Promotion and a NASM certified personal trainer, Sarah possesses a broad physical education base. Just recently she has completed NASM’s Corrective Exercise Specialization course further expanding her knowledge of how to correct muscle imbalance and weakness. In addition to her studies, she has gained valuable experience and insight having previously worked in an innovative physical therapy studio. She emphasizes proper posture and technique in every exercise.
The model for her training style can be understood from a quote by Sister Mary Rose Mcgeady- “There is no greater reward than to make a fundamental difference in someone’s life.” Recognizing that we all come from differing physical backgrounds, Sarah has a passion for encouraging others to reach their full potential. Having experienced physical shortcomings in her own life, she knows that any goal can be achieved even after a setback. Sarah also believes that when you encourage people to have fun while exercising they are far more likely to adhere to a healthier lifestyle for body and mind.

“Wellness is my passion!” Wellness is an ever evolving journey that begins in the mind with our thoughts. It is my fundamental belief that the body was created to be healthy. My purpose is to help my clients improve their quality of life through lifestyle changes. Healthy weight loss is one of the many benefits of a healthy lifestyle. From my youth, I loved to exercise and participate in sports. After the birth of my third child, I weighed over 200 pounds. Through exercise and healthy eating I have been able to lose the weight and maintain it for over 15 years. I also find that exercise is an excellent stress reliever. My family is genetically predisposed to obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I am very proud to say at 56 years young, I have experienced none of these issues and take no medication at all! PTL! One of my 2016 goals is to become a “Marathon Manic” by completing 3 full marathons(26.2 miles) in 90 days. It would be my pleasure to assist you in reaching your fitness goals.

My biggest passion in life is first Jesus, and then fitness. I love using my passion for fitness to help motivate, educate and inspire others in whatever their fitness goals may be! I was a college athlete playing both basketball and softball. I continue to compete in half and full marathons along with obstacle races. I’ve worked with all types of clients including athletes, ones with medical restrictions, and those looking for overall fitness/weight loss. “If it doesn’t challenge you it won’t change you.” Let me help you along your fitness journey and just show you what you’re capable of! I believe that my job is to help you transform on the inside to see the external goals you’re looking for.
