Speed Up or Slow Down?

Four years of service in the United States Army, a deployment to Iraq, and now a volunteer firefighter who has given her life to serving our first responders in New York City at FDNY, makes Sarah Apgar’s interview on today’s podcast a special one. Sarah is the founder of FitFighter Training and a previous All American Rugby Player at Princeton University and a US Women’s Atlantis 7s Team Rugby Player. If there is anything Sarah knows– it’s physical and mental strength. 

In this episode, Sara challenges you to see where true strength comes from focus, your ability to slow down the pace of life, a heart of service, and your mental health. Sarah is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to what true strength really is, and how to get the best out of anyone you work with. Whether you are an athlete, soldier, coach, parent, firefighter or first-responder, or anyone who desires the best out of life, you’re going to love this episode.
