Let's Get into the Interview with Sara!
What were your first experiences in sports, fitness or enjoying physical activity? When did you become interested in 'working out?' Why?
I've always loved being active, and for a long time, running was my favorite way to work out. Even as a kid, I would run from one room to another in my house. I think even then, I craved the endorphins I got when running. I started to work out more formally in my mid-20s, and I loved the feeling of becoming stronger the more I did it. It also helped me manage my anxiety.
What types of things did you do to stay in shape before Home Bodies? How consistent were you?
I've tried a variety of ways to work out (running, TRX, CrossFit, spinning, yoga) but whatever I've done, I've always been pretty consistent with it.
Sara loves to get active outside when she can. Strength training helps her to feel good while she is doing that.
Have you used other trainers in the past? If so, how does your trainer compare?
I've never used a trainer before Home Bodies. Hiring Gina was my first.

What led you to choose Home Bodies for online personal training?
I've always been somewhat injury-prone and had to give up running about five years ago because I kept having back issues. Then, earlier this year, I hurt my knee after joining a volleyball team. I was frustrated that these activities that I love doing were no longer accessible to me. My physical therapist recommended Home Bodies as a way to get stronger safely.
Was working with a Home Bodies trainer what you expected? If so, what did you expect from a trainer? If not, what was different about us?
I didn't really know what to expect since I've never worked with a trainer before. I definitely didn't expect the remote personal training component to be as effective as it's been though, with such personalized and tailored instruction and workout plans! I also love how I've been able to tailor a program that meets my goals without being too expensive. Being able to meet with a trainer once a month but also work out with personalized plans several times a week has been great!
