Sarah Williamson, CPT
While I’m an art director at an advertising agency by day, I spend most nights of the week in my natural habitat: training clients and working out at The Bar Athletic Club in San Angelo, TX.
I’ve been a NASM-certified personal trainer since May 2014, but it wasn’t until January 2016 that I took the first step of working one-on-one with clients to help them with their fat loss and strength goals.
Before I got into personal training, my labor of love was teaching Zumba Fitness classes. After six fun years, I decided to take a break from teaching and focus all my energy on personal training, but never fear–my love for salsa and reggaeton beats will never leave me. Zumba Fitness was my stepping stone into the fitness world, and it showed me just how good my body feels when it MOVES. It also brought me my first clients, all of whom were students in my classes and the best cheerleaders a newbie trainer could ever hope to have.
My husband Brian has also been incredibly supportive of my fitness journey and regularly hits the iron in his own right. Our love of Marvel movies, Louie CK, our furry child, and nerd speak keeps us together. That, and we’ve been together too long to know any better. 🙂 He owns MultiClean LLC, a diverse cleaning and floor care company.
We are the humans to a 7-year-old beagle, Maddie. She enjoys long walks in the neighborhood, pumpkin spice anything, and wearing clothes so she can “be people.”
Likes: deadlift and overhead press, historical fiction and business books, 80’s pop, 90’s hip hop and R&B, 85-degree summer days, kayaking, travel, Latin dance, natural wonders, Texas BBQ, a perfectly-cooked ribeye. If you have a dog, it will become my best friend. No question. Because dog masseuse skills.
Dislikes: irresponsible drivers, anything involving heights, fast speeds, or a combination of the two, animal cruelty, inspirational memes with misspelled words, being stuck inside on a beautiful day.
