About Able Mind Able Body

Greetings!

My name is Sarah Dalton, and I am a motivational lifestyle coach and personal trainer who's based in Summerlin, Las Vegas. I take a holistic approach to healthy living, and I nourish my body and mind with a vegan diet, daily meditation and exercise.

I love to stay active, and I vary my fitness routine with hiking, yoga, creative outdoor workouts, and strength conditioning in the weight room.

My lifestyle has become my passion, and through my experiences, I have learned that there is no "one-size-fits-all" method to improving your health.

I do know that peak performance comes by integrating the body, mind and soul, and I specialize in coaching others to create their own unique set of rituals that help them reach their goals, whether they want to lose weight, lose the medication, or lose the self-limiting beliefs that have stopped them in the past.

I am a certified and insured professional, and invite you to tour my website to learn more about who I am and what services I offer. For those who are interested in personal training, I currently train at City Athletic Club, that's located on Sahara and Buffalo.

If you are already a member at another club, no sweat; you are not required to have a membership while we are working together.

If you would like more information, please call me, or send me a message with your contact information and the best time to reach you. There is no greater feeling on Earth than realizing that your potential is limitless. I believe in you, so let's get started!

Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. I help others to become aware of how their life impacts their health - to understand how they are spending their time, how they are affected by stress, and what aspects of their life are holding them back from achieving their goals. I get to know the person, and we throw out everything they've ever read on the internet about setting goals and how to be healthy and happy. Together, we create the daily rituals that keeps them in the present and improving their life on a daily basis - in the gym, at home, and in the office.

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Working with a coach is a long term investment in your health, and in an industry with as little regulation as ours, it's extremely important that you find a trainer whose coaching style is aligned with your own fitness goals. For starters, take a self assessment. What is your current level of fitness? Are you an athlete looking to enhance your performance? Expecting mother? Busy professional on a time crunch? If you are deconditioned, be wary of small group training. The more specialized your needs, the more attention you deserve. There are many sport specific trainers (ahem-MMA) that are excellent at their craft, but uncertified and not equipped to analyze your body and protect you from potential injuries. Every coach has a different style - we are not created equally, and if I see one more middle-aged woman training with a competitive bodybuilder, I'm going to throw a fit. Take a look around your gym, and watch how their trainers work with their clients. Are they focused, or are they on their phone? Does their client look challenged, motivated, and engaged? If you can see yourself in their client's shoes, introduce yourself and schedule a consult. The first qualifier should be whether they are certified, but this isn't the end-all-be-all. Ask about what they have done to continue their education, what training methods they use, and how they might progress someone at your current level of fitness. A knowledgeable trainer should be able to explain their craft in a way that makes sense to you - knowledge and the ability to teach come from experience. I would strongly encourage anyone considering a trainer to make that investment - the potential for benefit is tremendous. Seek out a qualified professional, ask questions, and find someone that makes you feel good. I specialize in building a lifestyle that creates an athlete - someone who wakes up each day ready to go to battle, someone who welcomes a challenge as an opportunity to become stronger. I build confidence within my clients to achieve, and create the rituals that push them further than any goal they could have imagined.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. When I first set out to find my footing in the health and wellness industry, I started looking around at what everyone else was - and most importantly WASN'T - doing. Like swiss cheese, I saw a lot of holes. I found a lot of people who weren't putting in the time to analyze who their clients were and what it was going to take to get them healthy. Working with a coach is an investment - in time, energy and effort. And it's a two way street. I build relationships with my clients, and I am up front with them about the results they can expect.

Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?

A. My life story is a long one, but every moment has lead me to where I am today. I've gone through my share of uphill battles, and have come to realize that they have made me strong. My entire story can be found here: http://ablemindablebody.com/my-story.

Q. Do you do any sort of continuing education to stay up on the latest developments in your field?

A. Yes! First, I am certified with the National Academy of Sports Medicine as a Personal Trainer. I chose to continue my education with NASM and became a Corrective Exercise Specialist and Performance Enhancement Specialist. My education has allowed me to build a strong foundation of flexibility and movement before progressing my clients through strength training and building their athleticism with endurance, power, and agility training. I am also a Certified Wellness Coach, which has helped me to improve my interpersonal skills and connect with people, motivating them to break down barriers they may not have even known existed.

Q. What is your greatest strength?

A. My greatest strength is my outstanding work ethic and professionalism. I learn day in and day out from the books I read, from my own experiences / experiments with my body, and from the stories that others have shared with me. I am logical, quick minded, and devoted to empowering others to succeed.
