Hello! I'm Dr. Sara Solomon. I'm a Bodybuilding.com and BSN sponsored athlete.
I used to compete in PRO fitness and bikini competitions, so I know firsthand how dangerous it can be to tie your happiness to an aesthetic outcome that requires a lot of strict dieting and exercising to attain and maintain.
That's why I'm NOT a fan of dieting. Dieting is not sustainable. Quite frankly, it's miserable. That's why I created the Fat Loss FastTM System. It's not a cookie-cutter method that you follow for 6 weeks. Rather, it's a sustainable approach to your lifetime nutrition. More specifically, it's my approach to Intermittent Fasting and Flexible Dieting.
I have degrees from McGill University in dentistry (DMD, 2005) and physical therapy (B.Sc. PT, 2001).
I practiced dentistry for years in the same awkward postures, and this resulted in many muscle imbalances. Because I was also competing in bikini competitions, I was incessantly exercising despite my imbalances. Over time, the end result was unsightly asymmetries, training plateaus, injuries and chronic knee pain. In 2016, I decided to change my situation. I wanted to overcome my imbalances, improve my strength/mobility foundation, and become an expert in movement mechanics. Now the way I move is fixing my imbalances, rather than exacerbating them.
If I knew then what I know now, I never would have dieted or exercised to create a calorie deficit. Today, I fuel and train to perform well in life. My passion is teaching others how to fuel and move well.
I'm a Level 1 CrossFit Trainer with a CrossFit Olympic Weightlifting Certificate, ACE personal trainer, NASM fitness nutrition specialist, Mad Dogg Spinning Instructor and a certified level 2 Buddy Lee Jump Rope trainer and ambassador. I'm known for my love of jump rope, and my signature pink Buddy Lee Jump Rope.

"I used to diet and exercise to shrink myself. To be less. Now I fuel and train to be strong. To be more. It used to be about what my body looked like. Now it's about what my body can do. I've never felt stronger or more confident, and I just happen to look better too". ~ Dr. Sara Solomon
