Sarah Strauss is a fitness coach originally from California but now residing in New York, USA. She describes herself as someone who “helps dedicated women build healthy habits that get real results!”
But Sarah’s life wasn’t always a picture of fitness. She used to be unhappy with her physique and appearance. One day, Sarah joined a gym in order to turn her situation around. She quickly saw progress in the gym and was motivated to share it with others online.
Ever since then, she’s come a long way – becoming an online fitness trainer and influencer. Her transformation pictures can be seen below.
“I’m enjoying life, I’m making progress in ways that I can maintain, I’m figuring a lot of s*it out about my body and I’m hopefully creating lasting success.”

“Some people give up because of slow progress, but the strongest people keep going despite every setback. I’ve become stronger from doing the wrong things again and again.”
Sarah is known for training with high intensity; doing many reps to achieve muscle pump. Typically, she’ll do 12 or more reps for lower body and up to 16 reps for the upper body each set.
As for exercises, Sarah likes to have a balance of heavy compound movements and isolation exercises. While heavier movements build her strength and muscle tone, isolation exercises enable her to achieve that lean and aesthetic look she’s known for.

“Actually making healthy changes and finding the confidence in our lifestyle is so much more than just “fat loss” or making drastic changes!”
Consistency trumps everything for Sarah. She doesn’t believe in trendy diets that promise quick results. But aims at maintaining a healthy lifestyle long-term.
In terms of her own diet, Sarah sticks to whole and unprocessed foods. She doesn’t worry about counting every calorie. Instead, she looks at the general quality of her food and macros; making sure to get enough lean proteins, complex carbs, and healthy fats.
As for supplements, she only uses natural and organic whey, along with whole food multivitamins and minerals for general health support.
“Staying fit, active, healthy and strong is something that has always been a priority to me. Whether it’s in a gym, with weights, swimming, walking, running. I want to know that I am able to do it and in control of my body and results.”
