"Sara put together a targeted weights program designed for my specific needs. After a few months, I can see significant changes in my strength and general functioning and these improvements are affecting all areas of my life. Sara has extraordinary expertise in exercise physiology and regularly adapts my program to reflect my improvement and to keep it interesting. She is also a very warm, kind and thoughtful person"

"I first met Sara in 2012 when she was conducting research into the physiological and psychological impact(s) of Hormone treatment for survivors of Prostate cancer. From that time I have been most impressed by her very open and friendly manner combined with excellent communication skills and a genuine concern for the well being of her clients. As a result of that contact I willingly enrolled in biweekly training sessions in late 2013 and continue to this day where Sara outlines a program of physically demanding activities that address the differing types and levels of physical fitness that are required. She shows great flexibility and a willingness to listen to the concerns of her clients. Sara is the total Professional!"

"I have known Sara for many years through my husband and been a client of for several years. My health and well being aims revolve around feeling good about myself and ageing well – hopefully to be able to meet the physical challenges that age does present to one. My main concerns as I moved into middle age were balance and spatial awareness therefore each week Sara provided me with exercises that would strengthen these areas. For example, I can now kneel on a medium sized fit ball for approximately one minute without falling. Sara’s Exercise Physiology expertise has further enabled me to reach my fitness goals – exercises are always interesting and varied"

"After 2 years I continue to enjoy working with Sara each week. She is respectful but relaxed and sociable. I find Sara to be an outstanding exercise physiologist with expert knowledge of physiology and rehabilitation. In comparison to the physios I have worked with in the past her approach is more dynamic, with a great ability to judge exactly the level and intensity of work I am capable of each session. She is also a skillful problem solver who innovates ways to allow me to engage in particular exercises when my physical disability impedes the usual method of exercise"

"I started seeing Sara at Simply Stronger to assist with my job as a teacher. She tailored a program for me based on my daily body stresses and strengthened me appropriately to be able to handle the stress and workload that was a direct result of my job. Then when I broke my arm at work, Sara was able to work closely with Work Cover to plan a program to assist my return to work, and the recovery program ensured that I was able to go back to work and continue with my regular duties. Sara's energy and passion helped make every session fun and enjoyable"

"Just over a year ago I was suffering with severe sciatica down my right leg and into my foot. I had already obtained a couple of orthopaedic surgeon's opinions and was on the verge of opting for lower back surgery. Then a college of mine put me in touch with Sara from Simply Stronger! To cut a long story short, a year later I am pain free, and have been for about 6 months. Sara worked with in building up my core strength and providing me with knowledge on how to exercise on my own to hopefully remain pain free for many years to come. I found Sara to be extremely knowledgeable, caring and considerate, with a very high attention to detail. She also changed my 'mindset' on how I view back pain, which has been a tremendous help. I can't speak highly enough about Sara and have no doubt in recommending her services."
