Staff Spotlight: Sarah Lauterbach

SLPersonal Trainer & Group Fitness Instructor at the Morris YMCA

When and why did you get involved with the Y?
My kids were always involved in Y activities, so when the Y opened in Morris, I thought it would be the perfect place to work. I started working here in January 2015 and have enjoyed every moment since. The Y has a great family atmosphere and offers something for everyone.

What can you tell us about your background and experience?
Since moving here from Switzerland 16 years ago, I’ve had several office jobs. But over the past few years, I’ve become more interested in the fitness industry. So, last fall, I decided to get certified as a Group Fitness Instructor. Then, in summer 2015, I added a certification as a Personal Trainer.

What are you passionate about professionally?
I am most passionate about learning new fitness trends and techniques and staying up-to-date on healthy eating and good nutrition.

What’s the best part about working here at the Y?
I enjoy being around people and meeting new members everyday. I love to challenge my class members and see them progress daily.

What’s one thing most people don’t know about you?
I was born in Morris, raised in Switzerland and have a weakness for chocolate.
