At Rising Tide Fitness, we think it’s important to support our local community and give back in meaningful ways. Our gym is about more than just us. It’s about serving our members and the community at large. That’s why we partner with other foundations, clubs, and businesses in the area to organize charitable events and donate to meaningful causes. We care about the communities we serve, and we couldn’t call ourselves the best gym in Hampstead, NC if we didn’t take an active role in making it a better place to live.

The aspect I love most about training is watching my clients become stronger and more confident than they ever thought possible. Watching athletes improve in their sport, or seeing a client return from an injury or illness stronger than ever inspires me to continue learning and training. I have been an athlete most of my life. My education includes a BA in mathematics. I became an NSCA CSCS in 2017, and I have competed in USAPL powerlifting meets. My focus is barbell training for all ages.

Sarah Plant

Nutrition Coach

I’m Sarah! I am the owner and head coach of Nowa Nutrition. I currently work full time as a Crime Scene Technician in Wilmington. Over 10 years ago, I started my fitness and nutrition journey. Working in a stressful field, weight training became my stress relief. I’ve had my ups and downs, tried just about every diet under the sun. I’ve had to restore both my gut health and hormone balance during different times in my life. I was always curious about proper metabolic function, so I recently enrolled in a few courses to become more deeply educated in proper nutrition for optimal body functions, hormone balance, and gut health. I am certified as PN1 through Precision Nutrition, and currently working toward my Nutritional Coaching Institute Level 1 and Level 2. I also have a background in thyroid and gut health education. I have a Bachelors of Science in Forensic Science with a concentration in Biology. I’m excited to use my scientific background to solve the problems seen in clients in order to maximize their lifestyles.
