Hi! I’m Sarah Smith. I am WELL acquainted with the struggles of rehabbing and managing pelvic organ prolapse and pelvic floor dysfunction, a messed up gut, and balancing fitness and self care practices with the chaotic job of being a busy mom!

I have spent years creating accessible and effective solutions to these struggles and I share them ALL with my clients and online community!

I work online and in her garage gym in Raleigh, North Carolina. 

I’m a former athletic coach, personal trainer, level two Russian Kettlebell Instructor, postnatal fitness specialist and functional pelvic floor and gut health advocate with a Masters in Soil Science and Agriculture. 

More about Sarah…

Sarah is a published author and has a decade experience conducting research at The National Institutes of Health, National Cancer Institute, University of Arizona and North Carolina State University.

She uses her strong scientific background and obsession with comprehensive research to provide evidence-based strategies from a functional movement and medicine perspective to her clients.
She believes that targeting the root cause of any health or movement struggles is the most efficient way to a sustainable, strong and life-nourishing lifestyle!

Sarah’s clients grow strong, confident and capable in their bodies-even when struggling with pelvic floor dysfunction, pelvic organ prolapse, gut health complications and other injuries or health conditions. 

She is a lover of her Creator, all things 90’s, mom to three boys and one English Bulldog.

Sarah also loves kettlebells, leisure walks, chickens, soil, coffee, not folding laundry and watching people move, but not in a creepy way.

“After being on 4 rounds of very strong antibiotics my gut was in a great deal of stress. Mainly extreme constipation.
By wk.2 of go with your gut I was feeling better. Finally by wk.3 I was feeling good,constipation starting to go away. Same with wk.4 still feeling good
I strongly recommend this program if you have any kind of gut issue. I had no idea just by eliminating some foods could make such a difference.
Thanks Sarah you’re awesome!!!”

"Sarah is knowledgable and down to Earth. She's super easy to talk to...even though we talked about personal things (like my pelvic floor's performance...ha!). Would highly recommend her to anyone in Raleigh, NC area and beyond (I'm in Milwaukee, WI and distance learning!)"

“I can’t begin to say how much Sarah has helped me in 6 weeks.
I have basic knowledge of kettlebells and Sarah took me to a level I didn’t think I could get to. She takes the time to thoroughly see how you move so that she can cater your program for YOU.
As a certified trainer that works with clients, I feel more confident integrating new things into their routines with the cues that Sarah has taught me. I recommend her to ANYONE from ANY fitness level because she can help you progress to the next level.”

“I can't begin to fully explain how gifted Sarah is at training and coaching kettlebells! She is extremely approachable and friendly, which makes you feel like you can come as you are, no matter what level of fitness you are at.
She is also a wealth of knowledge! As an avid follower on social media and a participant in her Kettlebells for Cool Kids program, I can confidently say that I have never experienced a trainer who has more knowledge and expertise in her craft than Sarah.”

“I’ve been wanting to get in shape for a very long time. I’ve done lots of different workouts. Sarah is different because her fitness videos are doable for everyone and aren’t endangering your physical health. I feel strong and confident when doing her workouts and that’s a win in my book. If your on the fence about who to choose for fitness give Sarah’s programs a try! They are so worth it!
