About

Sara Loomis graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater with a bachelor's degree in Psychology as well as a health studies emphasis. Sara's love for being active started with playing soccer at a young age and getting involved in volleyball during her high school years.

These experiences helped her understand how other countries viewed health and how important it was to continue growing and educating herself with the latest academic research.

She views health and wellness as a never ending process and believes that no matter where you are at in life, there is always an opportunity to grow. Through her personal and professional experiences, Sara has grown a passion for helping others understand the mind-body (Psychological and Physical) connection associated with fitness.

Kory Kurt

BS | Fitness Professional

About

Kory is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh with a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology with minors in coaching and strength and conditioning. Kory’s passion for fitness began at a young age, excelling in sports such as wrestling, football, and baseball. Kory’s commitment to fitness and understanding of the focus and hard work it takes to accomplish fitness goals comes from the strong work ethic provided by his family, growing up on a farm. Kory continued to excel in athletics throughout high school, taking on several leadership roles such as team captain of his high school football team, along with being a unanimous first team all-conference selection. Due to a significant neck injury as a teenager, Kory’s competitive career in sports ended earlier than he would have hoped. Though Kory’s injury brought several challenges, it eventually became a motivating force to continue his fitness journey and expand his athletic interests and knowledge. Kory has also enjoyed a background in coaching. He has coached middle school and high school athletes and continues to enjoy the coaching and mentoring aspects of being a Madison Downtown personal trainer. Kory’s interest in fitness has lead him to explore a wide variety of fitness strategies and programs that brings a unique style of personal training to our clients.

Q&A

Q: Why did you become a personal trainer?
A: I became a personal trainer because I have learned from my own experience to embrace the fitness journey rather than only the outcome. I enjoy working with people at various stages in their fitness journeys.
