Sarah Hoots became a fearless athlete at an early age. Until college, she juggled most of her life competing in the equestrian discipline of Three-Day Eventing and Gymnastics. This deep love of competition eventually led weight training, obstacle races, and fitness competitions. But it was her need for low-impact, endurance exercise that brought her to the sport of cycling in 2016. After her first race that summer, she was hooked. Diagnosed with Stage 3 Melanoma in 2017, Sarah is a cancer survivor at age 27 and left the corporate world to share her passion for changing lives through fitness and a healthy lifestyle. Sarah believes in the profound power of an uplifting environment where individuality is celebrated, and people can sweat, smile, encourage, inspire, and connect. Originally from Albany, Ga., Sarah put down roots in Atlanta in May of 2015 upon finishing graduate school at Lipscomb University in Nashville. An adventure traveler, she has trekked and explored throughout Europe and South America with hopes of conquering Mount Everest and Kilimanjaro by 2020. Sarah is also a fan of Renaissance History, Buckhead Church, and great vegan restaurants.
