Lifestyle Reset

Sarah Try

The next P90X3 Challenge starts on May 26, with everything to lose and nothing to gain, weight-wise that is.

Sarah Try calls herself a fitness coach, and takes a personal interest in helping individuals make dramatic changes in their health and wellbeing through exercise and nutritional counseling. It wasn’t that long ago she was an overweight executive. Then, she decided to toss it all away and move to Sturgeon Bay for a lifestyle reset.

Now, you can find Try at the local Door County YMCA twice a week teaching classes such as Insanity, Turbo Kick and PiYo – a combination of Pilates, yoga, sports and dance stretch. Otherwise, Try can be found online posting encouraging videos on her YouTube channel or on Facebook where she has almost 2,000 fans.

In January of this year, she put forth a nationwide transformation challenge that was taken up by eight couples – a 90-day commitment to performing a daily, 30-minute workout intensive known as P90X3, a series of graduated workouts that include speed, balance and agility work, core stabilization and extensive strength training.

If the couples made it to completion, the challenge was capped off with an evaluation to see which of them would have undergone the greatest physical change. Pounds were shed and muscles became toned, but only three of the couples made it all the way to completion.

“Join my next P90X3 Challenge starting on May 26,” says Try. “As your real-time accountability coach, I know we can transform your body.”

Try’s ongoing classes at the Northern Door YMCA meet each week on Mondays and Wednesdays; drop-ins are welcome. For more information visit
