Sarah’s Early Life

Sarah Godfrey’s life has been based in Dublin, Ireland ever since she was born in February 1993. Throughout her childhood, taking part in sports was something that Sarah was never really interested in.

However, hockey became a sport that she frequently played during her high school years. Despite this, Sarah failed to show potential in the sport. As a result, she eventually decided to give hockey up for good.

Instead, Sarah turned her attention to working out in the gym. However, Sarah was lacking in fitness knowledge. Because of this, she had no idea what she was doing and struggled to find a training routine that worked for her.

But then one day, matters were made far worse. It was at this point, Sarah’s dad unfortunately passed away. This was a devastating blow to Sarah, and from then on, her life commenced on a downward spiral.

Coping With Her Loss

As a way to cope with the loss of her father, Sarah began to eat unhealthy foods on a regular basis, paying little to no attention to her fitness and overall well-being. Consequently, she began to gain weight – causing her self-confidence to fall to an all time low. Until one day, that all began to change.

It was at this point, Sarah realized that she needed to do something to overcome her low self-esteem. From then on, she became determined to live her life in a positive way, while in the process, build a great physique.

From this moment onward, Sarah found herself a job in a gym, and started to move on with her life. Soon after this, she began to workout with a personal trainer – ensuring that she followed the right path to reach her fitness goals.

Becoming A Social Media Celebrity

After just 5 months, Sarah was able to make considerable progress with her training in the gym. Ever since then, she’s become a self-motivated individual with the desire to earn a great physique – something that she has now earned.

After attending a fitness expo in May 2016, Sarah was inspired to really kick her fitness journey into gear. It was at this point, her motivation was higher than ever. Sarah then set up her YouTube channel less than a month after the expo.

Ever since this moment, Sarah began to frequently document her daily life and workouts. From this point onward, she quickly grew a substantial online following.

Eventually, Sarah was able to become a sponsored athlete, offering her the chance to excel in her fitness career. Ever since then, she’s been able to positively influence many people across the world, stating the following in regard to this:

“I really want to positively impact as many people as possible and show them that by making small changes to their daily life, they can have a huge impact on how they feel about themselves both physically and mentally”.

Sarah attends the gym on a frequent basis, often 5 days per week. Glutes are her favorite muscle group to work on. Because of this, she places emphasis on training this body part – citing squats and hip thrusts as her favorite exercises.

Through trial and error, Sarah was able to find a workout split that allows her to optimally build lean muscle, looking something like this:

Sarah Godfrey’s Training Split

  • Two Upper Body Days
  • Two Lower Body Days
  • One Steady State Cardio Day – Usually Treadmill Running on an Incline

Sarah tracks her calories on a daily basis so that she’s able to stay lean all year round. She follows flexible dieting (IIFYM), allowing her to eat the foods she likes as long as she sticks to her calorie and macronutrient goals.

Sarah bases the majority of her diet on whole foods, including complex carbohydrates, healthy fats, and lean protein. However, she makes room for ‘cheat’ foods including her favorite – frozen yogurt, which satisfies her sweet tooth.
