"Fitness is not a destination, it’s a journey you must continue for the rest of your life."

Staying active has always been a part of Sara’s life. High school track was where she fell in love with weight lifting and being physically fit. She continued her fitness journey at the Findlay Family YMCA where she taught her first fitness class in 2001 and is still going strong!

        Over the years she has learned to teach a variety of classes such as cycling, power toning, cardio classes, flex and core, chair yoga and TRX. Sara loves to encourage her students to push themselves to reach that next level!

        One of her favorite verses she stands by is from Colossians 3:23 which reads…. "Whatever you do work at it with all your heart as working for the Lord."

          Sara truly loves what she does but most importantly she gives God all the glory. She is thankful and blessed she can share her love of fitness with others!

Christy Santistevan

A lifetime fitness enthusiast and advocate, Christy grew up in competitive sports and earned a Division II Scholarship for her first love….Basketball. Once competitive sports ran its course, running became a passion…Half Marathons, Full Marathons, Tough Mudders, etc. The desire to build strength initiated interest in CrossFit and re-fueled the competitive spirit through competitions and camaraderie. Having the privilege to be selected for NBC’s American Ninja Warrior was a special Highlight.

Individual successes have been rewarding, however the most fulfilling is training people on a functional level….one-on-one, group training, and class settings. Christy has been training/teaching classes near ten years and has truly loved EVERY. SINGLE. MINUTE.

Christy’s Motto is “Building Strength from the Inside Out." There’s more that goes into training than just the physical aspect. There are parts of a person’s health that can’t be seen…the internal health aspect is just as important!
