Sarah Blackmore

Sarah has always lived and worked in the Pioneer Valley, where it is easy to develop a passion for a fit and healthy lifestyle. Her lifelong interest in fitness began with gymnastics and continued through high school where she ran track. As an adult, she continued to run, but explored other fitness programs. She was introduced to spinning and it wasn’t long before she was certified and instructing. To provide a fitness experience for her clients where she can motivate people through life changes and transitions while witnessing the growth and confidence they develop is one of the things she loves about instructing.

She is continually challenging herself and has received many awards for her performance at local races. She loves to push herself in and out of the gym; and loves that moment of accomplishment in what seemed impossible only a short time ago. To Sarah, the 50/50 Community has shown her a ton of support and encouragement through her own personal growth. Sarah passes that on to her clients in her classes providing progressions so that members see their own growth and strength as well. In addition to her 50/50 Instructor role, Sarah has been a hairstylist in Northampton for the past 13 years.
