Sarah Fraser has been working in the fitness industry for nearly a decade. Her passion and dedication to teaching and training began with the martial arts when she was 15, and over the years has evolved, leading to certifications in yoga, weight training, personal training, sport specific training and, of course, kickboxing. Her time spent working with a variety of fitness levels and age groups have given her the skill to accommodate multi level classes. Sarah has a down to earth personality, but is not afraid to push her clients when they are straying from their goals or need to be challenged.

Sarah Fraser opened Crave Fitness an inviting community-based studio, open to all levels of fitness, in February of 2010. Crave Fitness offers a selection of fitness and yoga classes that will challenge, inspire and motivate you to take it to the next level. Ground yourself in a Yoga class, amp up your cardio in Out Door Boot Camp, or sweat it out during Kickboxing. The Studio also offers personal training and private group training that comes to you. Challenge your friends to join you for private group training sessions that will have you looking your best this summer or enjoy training one on one in the comfort of your own home.

Growing up in the Central Okanagan, my fondest memories come from outdoor activities such as hiking, water sports, and snowboarding.

My determination and curiosity always had me trying new activities and never turning down the opportunity for new experiences.

From an early age I experienced first hand the direct association between fitness and personal satisfaction and this made me want to pursue a career in health and fitness.

I started in the fitness industry as a volunteer instructor teaching 6am bootcamp 3 times per week.

As my passion for fitness grew, I decided to get certified in spin because I love an intense cardio workout and loud music!

Soon after that I graduated from the 200 hour Baptiste inspired yoga program and I now specialize in Power Flow Yoga.

After teaching for many years I decided to take up Personal Training. As a Personal Trainer, I want to share my enthusiasm, encourage a happier lifestyle and help people to realize what their bodies are capable of. I believe with the right training program, a bit of determination and support, anyone can achieve their goals.

Fitness is my passion; it is something that I love doing. My greatest satisfaction comes from having a positive impact on peoples lives and seeing their health and confidence grow.

As a happily married mother of two young ones, I am passionate about setting good examples for younger generations.

I teach bootcamp and spin classes.

I would describe my classes as a variety of strength, functional, and cardiovascular training. I consider my style to be directed towards all styles of learning through verbal, visual, and auditory cues.

Years back I attended Sarah Fraser’s fitness classes. She inspired me to take up my passion for fitness. I want to share my knowledge and inspire others to achieve their own personal goals. I want to do for people what Sarah did for me.

I am able to live and share my passion everyday with others. It has improved my overall health and has been a great stress release. It is a positive and uplifting atmosphere to be a part of.

My advice for living a healthy and active lifestyle would be to eat clean, drink enough water, and exercise often. A healthy body and a peaceful mind are key to a well-balanced, happy life.

My guilty pleasure would have to be socializing with a few drinks on board.

I grew up in Lake Country and I’ve played team sports such as soccer, basketball and volleyball my whole life. I also love outdoor activities like hiking, biking, snowboarding, and camping.

One of my biggest values in life is to be a positive influence in my community and to live a purpose-driven life. My aspiration is to help people find success through fitness.

Through participation in regular fitness activities and guided fitness programs, I hope to make your health goals become a reality, in a caring, fun, and dynamic environment.

I am currently studying Health & Exercise Science at UBCO, and I am striving to get into the teaching program next year.

I played for two years on the Heat varsity soccer team. In my first year, I received the UBCO athletic award “Rookie of the Year.” I am now a certified soccer coach for the LCYSA. Playing highly competitive sports has taught me the importance of both strength and cardiovascular endurance. Over time, I have learned that the benefits of exercise extend far beyond just improving athletic performance. I am a strong believer that exercise is the key to good health. Maintaining an active lifestyle can positively impact all aspects of health: mental, physical, emotional, social & spiritual.

I was born and raised on the Coast of BC, the youngest of four and only girl in a very athletic family. Growing up I spent 12 years dancing, my entire life playing ball, and my high school years playing volleyball as well. Transitioning into the Health and Fitness Industry was easy and while attending University for Physical Education I started taking my first certification courses. I have now been in this field 20+ years off and on while raising 4 athletic sons. I have always strived to be a positive and healthy role model for them, supporting them in whatever endeavours they choose to pursue and challenging them to be their best.

Four years ago I decided to challenge myself more and began competing in shows. In the past year, I have added CPA Judging at these shows as well, and am currently an International Grandmaster bikini competitor.

This past summer I relocated to the Okanagan with two of my sons so they could pursue their passion for hockey. I look forward to the opportunity of working with a new community!

My focus is, and will always be, to motivate, inspire, challenge and champion anybody I am Blessed to coach, teach, and work with. I enjoy working with all fitness levels, and love to see people achieve what they never thought was possible! It’s never too early or late to start…so let’s do this!
