Sara Hunt

Owner of Priority Health, LMT, Certified Hydro-Colon Therapist, and Health Coach

Born and raised in small-town Iowa, Sara led an active lifestyle which paved the way for a volleyball scholarship during college, where she pursued a degree in Leisure Services with a focus on Fitness at the University of Northern Iowa. The aspiration to foster physical well-being and aid others in their fitness endeavors brought her to Des Moines, where she secured employment with the Iowa Methodist Hospital Employee Wellness Program.

In 1997, the Sara departed from the corporate sphere to establish a Personal Training business, driven by a fervent desire to assist individuals in achieving their fitness aspirations. Subsequently, in 2001, she graduated from the Iowa Massage Institute, recognizing the synergy between physical exercise and muscle release through massage therapy in facilitating her clients' fitness objectives.

However, in 2004, their health encountered a significant setback with the removal of a substantial growth from their thyroid, resulting in a weight gain of 75 pounds and a profound sense of professional insecurity. Nevertheless, this marked the inception of a transformative journey toward self-discovery and healing.

Her quest for holistic health extended to the realm of emotional well-being, as she delved into the symbiotic relationship between emotional and physical health. This exploration culminated in certifications as a Health Coach from Integrative Nutrition and Infinite Possibilities in 2012 and 2013.

 

Motivated by a desire to spare others from similar struggles and equipped with a diverse arsenal of healing modalities, Sara dedicated herself to empowering individuals on their personal journeys to wellness. Each day, she feels privileged to pursue her passion, and is grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with remarkable individuals and witness collective growth.
