Sara Stevens

Massage Therapist & Personal Trainer
Massage Therapy
Group Workouts

Sara believes we are made to move and have fun doing it! She enjoys helping her clients reconnect with their bodies and find ease and joy moving in ways they love. When Sara started applying the ADAPT philosophy to her own training, she found relief from nagging knee and back pain she thought she'd deal with forever, and became stronger and less fearful in her movement and adventures. When she's not working with clients or working out at the Spears Strong Lab, Sara enjoys hiking, fastpacking, trail running, or snowshoeing with her favorite adventure buddies, Andy (her husband) and Lucy (her dog).

Jonathan Spears

Personal Trainer
Group Workouts

Aksel’s grandfather introduced weightlifting to him at an early age, so it’s no surprise that he went on to compete nationally. He approaches his own training with patience and resolve and brings that same attitude to his clients.
