More About Sarah

sarah hankla ironman triathlete

I have been running since age 11 and am a former collegiate Cross Country and Track athlete. As a result of injury throughout college, I frequently utilized cross-training to maintain fitness between seasons. In 2008, I completed my first triathlon and fell in love with the sport.

I have a passion for helping others enter the sport and achieve their goals. My biggest race accomplishments (outside of collegiate running) were completing the 2023 Boston Marathon and Ironman World Championships.

As a mother of two, I have first-hand experience in designing realistic custom individual programs that can fit into a busy everyday life. I look forward to helping you accomplish your health and fitness goals.
