Sara Anne Fairbanks was born in San Diego, California and raised in Cleveland, TN, where she attended Lee University. She is a Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) through the National Academy of Sports Medicine and Certified Fitness Nutrition Specialist.
Before joining C4 Cleveland, Sara Anne started her training journey in a private studio, then owned and operated her own personal training studio in the Cleveland area for the last few years. Her husband is also a strength and conditioning coach, and health and fitness have always been very important parts of her life.
“I love personal and performance training. I’m honestly inspired to do my job by God, who gave us incredible bodies to move and work and do amazing things – we just have to be willing to put in the work to see what we’re capable of,” says Sara Anne. “My favorite thing about being a coach is watching my clients advance and transform physically and also mentally. Seeing my clients prioritize their health and fitness is one of the best parts of what I do, and !’m thrilled to train for C4!”
Amy Ketron is a certified athletic trainer and recovery specialist who analyzes deficits in performance – whether from an inability, deficit or injury. She uses various exercise techniques to correct these deficits with a sport specific mindset. Using the capabilities available at C4’s recovery center, Amy develops customized recovery programs that help athletes of all ages and ability levels recover faster, reduce the likelihood of injury or reinjury, and bring balance to the body.
Before joining C4, Amy worked in NCAA Division 1 athletics, high school sports, and as Director of Sports Medicine for the third largest physical therapy company in the US. She also served as a private athletic trainer to NFL and NBA athletes.
Amy earned a Bachelor Science in Athletic Training from Union University. She also holds a Master of Sports Administration from Belmont University. She is a NATA BOC certified athletic trainer and certified ergonomics assessment specialist (CEAS). Amy is also certified in functional capacity evaluation, kinesiology taping, and selective functional movement assessment.
“I became an athletic trainer because I have a BLAST helping people perform to their highest capability. There is no greater joy than watching a person compete after helping them unlock a movement struggle, come back from an injury, or overcome a setback,” Amy says. “What’s ironic is that, despite knowledge that performance recovery is necessary, too many people don’t find time for it. It’s simply not optional if you want to be your best physically. When you give attention to recovery, you WILL get stronger, faster, increase endurance, and be more fit. OPTIMIZE your body and the sky is the limit. Helping people accomplish this is not work, it’s fun!”
