Biography

Sarah grew up in New Jersey right along the Pennsylvania border near the Lehigh Valley where she was a dancer, gymnast and cheerleader throughout her youth and into high school. She continued her athletic career as a collegiate cheerleader at Salisbury University for three years (Coach John Harper note: yes, cheerleading at the collegiate level is most definitely a sport!), and also coached high school cheerleading at the competitive level immediately following college for three years. Sarah was always built to ‘flip & fly’ and has continued to make fitness a priority throughout her adult life. After a long and arduous debate (years), her husband, Coach John Harper, finally convinced Sarah that she would not get ‘bulky’ when he opened CrossFit South Wake, and thus began Sarah’s CrossFit journey. Sarah walked into her first month in CrossFit and climbed a rope, did some pull ups, and proved her husband right—-she actually likes CrossFit and is dang good at it too! “I’ve always been good at gymnastics, so the step to CrossFitting has been fun for me. I love the competition….especially beating my husband!”

In the words of CrossFit South Wake Owner, John Harper: “After the ‘convincing’, Sarah has taken to CrossFit as I expected, and already competes with our best athletes. She is a natural coach coming from a decade of teaching and coaching. She’s already good, and the skies the limit on her personal CrossFit goals and coaching aspirations. Our members/athletes are in great hands with Sarah, as she is meticulous, professional, and sets expectations high.”
