Train With A Coach You Respect

According to Sara, a good coach should:

“should understand the mind of their athlete, never be controlling, and be willing to learn and hear your opinion.”

Sara feels that this two way relationship between a coach and an athlete is important to stimulate growth and keep training exciting, effective and fulfilling. For example she will often design workouts herself. For example this one below was her answer when I asked her to describe her perfect workout.


  • 10-1
  • Strict muscle up
  • Paralette HSPU
  • Squat snatches that get heavier in each set

She strikes an excellent balance between being serious and dedicated about the process and her goals, but also does not forget to stop and savour the moment.
