About Sara Hunt
If someone had told me when I was young, growing up in a little Iowa town of just 100 people, that I’d be doing what I’m doing today, I never would’ve believed them. What a journey!
I was always very physically active, which led to me receiving a scholarship to play volleyball in college. I earned my degree in Leisure Services with an emphasis in Fitness from the University of Northern Iowa. I knew I wanted to make a career out of being active and helping others to do the same. An internship, and subsequent job, with the Iowa Methodist Hospital Employee Wellness Program, brought me to Des Moines.
In 1997, I left the corporate realm to start my own Personal Training business, motivated to help people accomplish their fitness goals.
In 2001, I graduated from Iowa Massage Institute. The combo of physically working out the body and releasing the muscles with massage were a winning combination for helping my clients’ achieve their fitness goals.
In 2004, my health took a turn. A large growth had to be removed from my thyroid. I gained 75 pounds. I became ashamed to tell people what I did for a living. I felt like if I wasn’t “fit”, why would anyone hire me to help them. I became depressed. But that’s where my journey really began! I was determined to figure out how to help myself feel better.
One of my clients suggested I see a Naturopath in Minnesota. He ran a series of tests to help pinpoint why my energy levels were so low, and what could help balance my body. That’s when I learned all about the importance of colon health. He educated me on how an improperly functioning colon – which most of us experience on some level – was making my body toxic.
I was forever changed by what I learned from that experience, but disappointed to discover that nobody in Iowa was practicing Hydro-Colon Therapy. A year later I became certified as a Hydro-Colon Therapist.
That experience led me to the next obvious point on my journey – emotional health. I became fascinated with the link between our emotional and physical well-being and started educating myself and attending seminars and classes on different aspects of that connection. This led to my Health coach Certification from Integrative Nutrition and Infinite Possibilities in 2012 and 2013.
I am motivated to help others grow, so they don’t have to go through what I went through. Or at least offer them support, education and guidance on how to keep moving forward in their own lives. Along the way, I have researched and received instruction, certification, and education on many modalities of healing so that I can offer my clients a wide array of services, that fit their specific symptoms and needs.
My latest additions include Zyto Scan Balancing Technology, EVOX perception re-framing and Ozone Sauna Therapy. So exciting! Be sure to find more information on the site or ask me about them.
I feel so blessed to be able to wake up every day and do what I love. I get to work with amazing people who put their trust in me, and we continue to grow together every day.
I have transformed and grown my business over the years, through the continued referrals and support of my clients. Thank you!
God Bless you all,
