Meet Sara

October 2012.

Hi! I’m Sara Hefty.


I inspire remarkable women to let go of unwanted weight so they can own their true purpose, eat real food, and go shopping at any store in the mall without embarrassment, guilt or fear.


Together we’ll get you moving towards that healthy weight range for your height so you can go from hiding behind a screen all day and night to rocking any outfit you choose and engaging life fully.


Often, we’re so rushed and pressured to create our ideal career, home, body, relationship and social life that we miss chances to discover the REAL permanent weight loss secrets that are just waiting for us.


I talk a lot about nutrition, weight loss, and taking care of your body. But, I also talk about what it means to rock life, liberate abundant happiness, ignite confidence, illuminate beauty, and empower feminine brilliance so that you can show up as the authentic, most confident, proud version of yourself. Daily. Easily. Gracefully.


And while things around here might look a bit fabulous, I can promise you that I’m really just a down-to-earth woman like you.


April 2010.

I grew up in east-central Minnesota on a family farm.


I won scholarships, borrowed a ton of money, and worked my way through college. I did everything society said I was suppose to do to make myself successful.


But you know what? I wasn’t happy. I was an obese hot mess. (Just ask my husband. We’re one of THOSE couples that have been together since high school, going on 14 years, prom picture included. Yup, he’s seen it all. Brave man. Loved woman. And a whole lot of forgiveness and laughs in between.) Career-wise though… I was completely unfulfilled.


So, I decided to get serious about my legacy. I took the leap to do the work I hold sacred in my heart: helping women lose weight, healing the generational wounds of cancer (more on that later…), and pursuing lifestyle ownership. It was the best decision I could have made – going after my childhood dream of building a successful business. A business that honored the long, hard hours my grandparents and parents worked so that I could have the opportunity to live my dreams.


I now run several health coaching programs focused on weight loss, lifestyle ownership, and upgrading health legacies. I’m in love with my work and enjoy an amazing life. I have so much gratitude for the ideas that have used me and feel grateful for everything I have.


All things said, since entering the world of health coaching, mindset has quickly become another passion of mine; I’m completely determined to empower women to be their truest selves and live their strongest, most fantastic, happiest life.


Don’t get me wrong – it takes work. Self-reflection. Digging deep. Being vulnerable. Tears. But this work is heart-on-fire hot and sexy as hell. I didn’t get here by continuing to stuff my emotions with chocolate and peanut butter while watching The Biggest Loser, or from playing small and hiding in the comfort of mediocrity.


I got here because I pursued ownership, upgraded my legacy, and found damn good mentors and people who love me unconditionally.


What I can whole-heartedly promise you is this: It has been worth EVERY. OUNCE. OF. EFFORT. on all fronts.


As a health coach and a woman with my own weight loss story and wide-ranging family heritage of cancer, this work is my healed wound, my shared vulnerability, my life, my legacy, my service to the world.


This work is my honor. MY. HONOR.


And I am ALL IN. As in pride-running-across-my-soul, let’s-get-you-launched-already-so-you-can-live-the-most-excellent-life IN.


This Pursuit of Ownership, Weight Loss, and Upgrading Legacy work I have going on over here runs deep. It’s my core.


And you better believe I’m here to ROCK. YOUR. WORLD.


If you’re ready to round-house kick your extra pounds and experience that heart-on-fire empowered, healthy, happy, and nourished version of YOU that you are DAMN PROUD OF, then come join me!


Won’t you?
