Sarah Blackmore

Sarah lives in Greenfield with her husband Jon, dog Nova and two cats. She grew up in Northfield and she attended cosmetology school in Northampton. She works at a premier salon in Northampton and during the week you will find her at the salon doing hair. Sarah has always had an interest in fitness but continued to find herself getting bored with different workouts, weather it be an at home video or at a gym so it soon became a chore to workout. After hearing about spinning classes from a long time client she decided to give it a try and immediately was hooked. Within months after taking that first class she was signed up for the certification and soon realized she loves teaching spinning as well. She loves the high energy aspect of the class and that each class is different from the last. Her classes are fast paced and fun but she loves a big heavy slow hill for the mental and physical challenge.
