“I found Beauty Hunters when I was at a low point in my life, escaping a toxic relationship literally 2 days after the first class I attended. The support, encouragement, and camaraderie that I found here helped me to find the determination to change my mentality about fitness to focus on getting stronger and more capable. The confidence that this brings has carried over into every aspect of my life. Now, as I continue to seek personal improvement, I am ecstatic to have the chance to inspire others to join me in living the best possible life and became a trainer to share that joy. Life is meant to be enjoyed. There is no more time to waste on hating yourself or your body when you are capable of so much more.”
Cindy is a wife, mom to three boys, and a nuclear engineer. Cindy is passionate about becoming healthy and strong and wants you to come on this journey with her. She wasn’t always an athlete – far from it. She started running in 2012 and did her first half marathon in 2013. From then on, she hasn’t stopped working on her fitness. She had been to Beauty Hunter classes a few time in the past, but in 2018, she became a dedicated participant on Friday mornings. The love and encouragement you feel from all the women is addictive. With a little inspiration from Sarah, she felt the need to fill the void on Fridays after Mandy moved. Sometimes, it’s only that little push that we all need to get going or keep us going. Beauty Hunters is great for all women giving each other that lift when you need it most. We are open to all shapes, sizes and levels of fitness. There is something here for each and every one.
Katherine is a graduate of Tusculum University, in Greenville TN, where she received a bachelor’s in Human Growth and Learning. She is also a certified personal trainer. She grew up loving and competing in sports. She is a former Nationally Qualified Figure Competitor, not quite sure if she is ready to retire from competing all together. By day she works for a Brand Marketing Sign Company and by night is a group fitness trainer for a local franchised, nationally known Boot Camp. Katherine found beauty hunters about a year after it was founded and was drawn in because there was no pressure to be anything other than yourself. She was going through the love hate relationship with her body image that a lot of women deal with but very rarely share. Beauty Hunters has always been the place where women of any age or athletic ability can come workout and get that push to keep going without any judgement. She loves that Sarah’s faith is so transparent and seeing that makes her strive to share more about how much Jesus loves us and how you are more than worth it. Beauty Hunters is more than a free workout, it’s also about the bonds and friendships you make along the way. There are literally no excuses if you really want to GET IT, GET IT! Katherine knew this was her way of giving back. Her favorite part of every week is getting to teach the 1 st class that starts the week off right. DON’T STOP!

Sharon is now a personal trainer for Beauty hunters, training in Oak Ridge on Tuesday evening, and every other Thursday at Victor Ashe. She still personal trains with Sarah, and Mandy four days a week, along with doing her own workouts to meet her goals. “Beauty Hunters has changed my life how I see, and feel about myself, and fitness, giving back is the least I can do for this wonderful organization.” Sharon’s goal is to love, encourage, and empower women the way Beauty Hunters did her while going through her tough period in life. Training has now become a passion for her, along with helping women find their inner strength and encouraging them not to give up. “There were so many days and times I wanted to quit, give up, thought this is too hard and not for me, but I had Sarah, Mandy, and other Beauty Hunters informing me I Got it, I can do it, I did, and still am!” This is the kind of empowerment, and love she wants to pour into other women, and show them it can be done.
