Sarah Gaines is one tiny human with big ideas.

She’s a community builder, event expert, brand strategist, fitness instructor + yoga teacher.

Love, positivity, awareness, confidence + fun are woven into everything she does.


In college, Sarah created Fit University®, a college student’s go-to source for all things health + fitness. What started as a personal blog, developed into a club on campus, which then transformed into a community of college students across the US: all creating content and student clubs on campus to inspire, motivate, and empower college students to get fit, stay fit.

Most recently, Sarah has launched JOY5 Media + Productions: events and storytelling for human growth, connection + play.

Sarah is also the creator of joyflow, a class that blends elements of yoga, strength, and ecstatic dance; guiding students to a place of positive awareness and freedom of movement.

She is an ASICS Studio Trainer, has traveled worldwide to teach fitness, and has been featured in USA Today, People, and INSIDER for her message that fitness looks and feels differently for everyone.
