Sara Kirby, Contributor
Sara is a Communications Professional who has experience in producing content for TV, radio and print media. Currently studying a graduate certificate in Public Relations, Sara has been coached by Will Arias for the last 7 months and has been applying the QTX methodology, not only during her training sessions but, also, in her everyday solo sessions.
Sara represents our brand of Performance Training, and she feels more confident and independent, particularly when she is on the gym floor by herself, knowing exactly what she needs to do in order to get her fitness goals on track. A genuine role model, Sara has learnt how to respect structural limits and get the most out of functional movements. As a result, she feels healthier and stronger. Literally, stronger. For instance, these days Sara perform most fundamental movements adding external resistance above of her own bodyweight. Indeed, "there is nothing wrong with becoming strong".
Since started her training journey with Will, Sara has seen a great advancement in the aesthetics of her body in the ways that she set out to achieve with his help. In fact, apart from achieving a great fitness outcome, Sara has become in a QTX ambassador by kindly modelling for training manuals, posters, videos and social media, apart from demonstrating movements during our continuing educations workshops.
