Leading Ladies 2020: Sara L. Benn

Fitness Studio Owner


Sara Benn believes you can have your cake and eat it too. The owner of elevate barre and cycle says it’s all about balance. “The studio developed as a place for community members to get that piece of cake while balancing other aspects of life.”

A balancing act between responsibilities and carving out “me time,” elevate is a community-driven studio offering two specialty programs: indoor cycling and barre.

“Our clients are energized by community action,” says Sara. “There is a sense of camaraderie and individuality.” In addition to bringing people together, elevate has helped to raise money for Global Lyme Disease and Pedal for Cancer.

A self-described fitness enthusiast, Sara juggle(s) multiple roles: mother, wife, and insurance professional. “My day starts at 5am teaching a spin class or two, then I’m off to managing commercial accounts. After work, I go back to elevate to teach.

My day begins and ends with a few classes.” Aside from being goal focused, Sara is career focused. She’s soon launching a third fitness specialty, TRX, to elevate. “What we do physically can be very transformative into our daily lives.”
