What you'll do

As an Olympic heptathlete I had to juggle the different demands of competing in seven track and field events. There are definite synergies from life as an elite athlete and motherhood. Although, there is one major difference: there is no rest day.

In this experience, I will take you through seven different strategies I use to look after myself so I can thrive as a person and a mum. This will include breathing techniques, some body maintenance exercises, nutrition tips, supplement advice, planning hacks, creating a family philosophy, and some Kiwi wellness advice from my home to yours.

If you're keen on thriving instead of surviving, this experience will give you practical and realistic advice on how you can get the best out of you as a person and as a parent.

I'm passionate about people, health, and connecting the two. My most important role aside from the governing, media, and ambassador work I do, is my role as a mum.

Juggling seven different events as an Olympic heptathlete helped prepare me for the demands of motherhood. Most importantly, I know I need to take care of myself so I can take care of my people. I hold a Bachelors in Physiotherapy Health Science and Communication Management.

We live on a lifestyle property just outside of Cambridge, NZ with my husband, a three time Olympian and PhD who works in elite sport with the goal of maximising human potential. Together we are passionate about the health of others and have a thirst for knowledge around health and wellbeing. Most of all, we love to share it.

Sarah dished out useful tips to thrive as an athlete & family-oriented person + parent. She also shared some stretching exercises/simple workouts using a towel. Loved the experience!

Sarah was an amazing host and easy to talk to right from the start. Her tips were clear, concise and doable. I would recommend this any woman who wants to be empowered or just anyone who wants to see how work and life can be balanced in just a few small steps!

I loved my experience with Sarah. Not only is she a world class athlete, she's an amazing mom and community leader. I enjoyed getting to learn more from her and am excited to apply some of the mindfulness, exercise, and toddler management skills that she so expertly uses. Thanks for such a personal and candid experience!
