Sarah woods

Sarah has been training people of all kinds, in both therapeutic and athletic capacities, for over 20 years. Five of which have been here in Chapel Hill, NC. Her career has given her the opportunity to train with a variety of different modalities. Barbells, kettlebells, yoga, circus, CrossFit, maces/clubs, calisthenics/bodyweight, and more. Sarah is a powerhouse of movement tricks and information. 

in her own words

“I do not subscribe to any single fitness dogma. I believe in curiosity, exploration, experimentation. I do not think there is only one way to become healthy and fit. It’s about finding what works for you. My goal is self-betterment, and I will use the tools and ideas that most efficiently (and safely!) move towards that goal, whatever they may be. I believe the best way to train involves being open minded, trying new things, sincerely addressing weaknesses and compensations, and learning to PLAY. If thoughtful self-mastery is a goal that makes sense to you, or maybe even just piques your curiosity after trying other things in the past, we’d love to see you at Chapel Hill Movement Gym.”
