Biography (Long Version):
Dr. Sara Solomon was born on January 25, 1978 and raised in Belleville, Ontario, Canada. Sara completed her undergraduate training at McGill University in Montreal, Canada where she received her Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy in 2001. Sara’s desire to interlace science and artistry resulted in her pursuit of dentistry. After obtaining her dental degree (DMD) from McGill University in 2005 (which included 1.5 years of medical school), she moved to Toronto, Ontario for her residency training at Mt. Sinai Hospital. After 8 years of university, Sara had gained weight. In 2006, Sara finally had her "aha moment" and adopted a healthy lifestyle. Within a few months, her body completely transformed. Sara's transformation was even featured as one of Oxygen Magazine's Success Stories in 2011.
Sara earned her ACE personal training, Mad Dogg Spinning and NASM Fitness Nutrition Certifications in 1999, 2007 and 2014 respectively. She became a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer in 2016. Sara became a certified Buddy Lee Level 2 jump rope trainer with the Jump Rope Institute under the tutelage of Olympian and world-renowned jump rope expert, Buddy Lee in 2009.

The years of overtraining and over-dieting took a toll on Sara physically and mentally. In 2012, Sara gained 20 pounds despite training 2 hours a day and eating calorie-restricted meals every 2.5 hours, 6 times a day. Sara did her research and started applying evidence-based principles to her diet and training. It wasn't before long that she shed the excess fat and restored relationship with food and her passion for fitness.

Sara’s goal is to motivate others to become healthier, happier and more productive through the adoption of an endurable and maintainable ("less is more") approach to health and fitness. Her philosophy is "minimum effective dose to get results". Sara doesn't take herself too seriously and likes to make fitness fun!
