  How This Woman Became a Fitness Queen © Nichole Alex Sarah Sapora, now 38, had been working up to 17 hours a day in San Francisco when both her parents were simultaneously hospitalized in the summer of 2015. Having long neglected self-care to focus on her career in marketing and public relations, when Sarah flew home to New York City, she struggled to walk the one-and-a-half city blocks between her parking spot and the hospital where her mother was being treated.

"My knees, my energy level, my back - they weren't working for me. I was in low-level pain all the time, but I didn’t even think about it because that was my normal," says Sarah, who spent much of her adulthood largely inactive. "The realization that my body was in a state where it wasn't thriving opened the door for me to see the other aspects of my life that were also unaligned and not thriving." Between her career and love life, everything was falling short of her expectations.

The One Exercise Actress Alison Brie Stopped Doing To Prep For GLOW

  The One Exercise Actress Alison Brie Stopped Doing To Prep For GLOW photo credit: netflix Alison Brie’s Fitness For GLOW Whether it’s getting a perm, doing pullups or her own stunts, Alison Brie committed to her role on GLOW, the new women's wrestling series on Netflix. But there's one form of fitness she's dropped. And that’s cardio. Known mostly for her quirky, uptight roles on Community, Mad Men and How to Be Single, latest role as Ruth Wilder on GLOW has her hitting the gym hard. Her pre-filming workout routine was nothing short of impressive. To prep for becoming one of the '80s-set Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (or, GLOW) Brie stopped her regularly cardio-filled routine (think SoulCycle) for a more intense regime to build strength without bulking her up. And after watching the show - she did all of her stunts herself - it's safe to say the change paid off. Brie's trainer Jason Walsh (the man behind other celeb physiques like Emily Blunt and Minka Kelly) created a program that would allow Brie's character to handle the body slams, flips and flying off the ropes (literally). 'We did tons of sled push-and-pulls; we did a lot of deadlifting,' Walsh explained to the Hollywood Reporter, adding, 'She could crank out 10 body weight pull-ups on her own. It's insane.' photo credit: instagram He says he added hundreds of pounds to Brie's push-and-pulls, not to mention making her piggyback him. Before you go upping your weights, know that he had her start with using her own body weight.

Sarah decided to overhaul her lifestyle and has since developed strength, confidence, and pride by doing high-intensity workouts, which she's been sharing with her 112K Instagram followers since her journey officially began 11 months ago.

"I was just really ready to do the difficult work and threw myself into this personal-growth mindset," she says.

Her parents' hospitalization had coincided with the end of a grueling job, so when she returned to California, she decided to become an independent consultant working for herself.

Just show up. I say this all the time, but do you understand what I mean? I had a challenging night last night, I was overwhelmed and hanging out with my fear pretty close. I needed help sleeping, because each time I slowed my mind enough to breathe and say "faith" and "surrender" to myself, tears choked my mind and I started to cry again. This is ALL ok. And feeling things doesn't make me less of a woman or less strong. Feeling is the ONLY way I work and process stuff -- if I don't look my fear head on, I can never put it aside. This morning, I was exhausted and hungover from crying. I slept through my 6 am alarm and wanted to stay in bed. But I got out of bed anyway. I had signed up for a Kundalini Yoga class at 8:30. I knew I didn't have enough in me to lay it all out on my mat today, but I went anyway. I sat in the back. To be there. To breathe. To get out of my own head and to tap into the things that are bigger than me. To be in the energy. To show up. To show up so I can keep moving forward. Fear is standing in one place, spinning my own wheels and getting stuck in my own mud. Love is moving forward. Love isn't being perfect or getting everything right, it's just the willingness to keep going. Keep going. Show up. You may not have the answers but you stay alive. You stay present and you work on having faith in the idea that sometimes you just don't get to know. Sometimes you have to believe in things you can't see or touch. Things that you dont get evidence for. You just show up and believe because Hope is human.
