Movement Evolved Co-Owner, Trainer, Health and Nutrition Coach
Hi!! My name is Sarah Larmie.
I was a registered nurse for 10 years before jumping into the world of personal training. I started on my own fitness journey after the birth of my second son in 2008 (did I mention that I’m the mom of 2 active boys?! I have to stay strong and fit to keep up with them!!) when I was trying to lose my pregnancy weight. I started by adding more regular movement to my days, eventually adding weights and some running, then progressing to writing strength and conditioning programs for myself and a friend (often based on the many fitness magazines I perused regularly) and in 2012 participated in my first road races (a 5 mile run as part of a relay and a half marathon) as well as the Spartan Beast Race at Killington, VT!!
I was officially hooked, and starting to consider adding a personal training certification to my repertoire. Fast forward to the end of 2013, and I was taking over a training business and going full time with this new career!! I have loved every minute of it!!
With my nursing background, I have an extensive knowledge of the human body as well as medical and physical issues that can affect how well it moves and performs. I train clients of all ages, and my goal is to meet you where you are at, and based on your personal goals, help guide you to where you want to be. I believe that being strong and fit has a different meaning for every person I work with - whether it be to keep up with their grandkids, avoid injury while running multiple races per year, or losing weight and fitting better into a favorite pair of jeans...and my goal is to help each client get there.

As a young girl I dreamt of becoming a teacher. Life had other plans and I found myself practicing nursing for 14 years in Western Mass and Minnesota. During that time I joined gyms, went through the motions with treadmills, ellipticals, and nautilus machines. I tried swimming. I tried running. All of it a boring but necessary chore until our family came to Vermont and I started to develop an awareness that my perspective wasn’t complete. After our second child, I gathered up my courage and dove into weight lifting. Barbells, kettlebells, dumbbells … I discovered that I was strong and that I was good at this. It was empowering and it changed me. The more I learned and the more I accomplished, the more I wanted to understand the science and mechanics of the movements. The more I learned and the more I lived it, I realized that I wanted to show others what I was discovering. I didn’t have to remain a nurse to focus on the health. I wanted to be a teacher for those who wanted to improve their health and their lives.
I became a certified ACSM personal trainer and have not looked back. I regularly draw on my nursing background and love for teaching. Being a part of this fitness community is the the most exciting career I have ever entertained. We are working together to grow and to enhance the community, and better ourselves side by side. I love seeing members of all ages and fitness levels reaching their goals and helping them set new ones.
I live on beautiful slice of heaven with my husband and two kids. Come to our house and you will find my daughter walking around with a chicken, my son and husband practicing archery. Ducks will be quacking in the pond and sheep baa’ing for attention. I feel so lucky that we have found our niche in Vermont and that I have the privilege to work in a community that inspires me every day.

Fitness was my frenemy for a long time. I’d put in my time at the gym, I’d worked with the personal trainers, I’d slogged through the repetitive and boring 60-minute intervals on the StairMaster. For me, the change came in 2010, not long after the birth of my second child. I designated it the “year of unnecessary lessons” and decided to try things that I’d been curious about but didn’t have the courage or confidence to do. I began my journey into Functional Fitness, engaging my whole body in a way that I’d never done before. It was hard, it was amazing, and it completely changed my life. At the end of the year, I realized that there was nothing “unnecessary” about it. It was now an integrated part of my life and was defining who I was.
At the same time, I was diving deeper into growing far more of my own food and contributing my energy and time into the Randolph community through my work and volunteerism. I began pursuing various health and fitness certifications, starting leading group fitness classes, and realized that I’d walked right into something that was far more than a job, it was a passion. It was fun. It was community building. And I was helping people make their lives better.
I’ve lived in Randolph since 2005. I’m raising my kids here and try to help where I can, whether that’s as a Girls on the Run coach or a Habitat for Humanity volunteer. Local people might know me from my time as Farm-to-School Coordinator for the Randolph Elementary School and the Randolph Technical Career Center or as the Program Coordinator for the Randolph-based non-profit organization GEMS (Girls Empowered, Motivated, Strengthened).
I can’t believe that everyday I have the good fortune to pour my soul into this work! Movement Evolved allows me to combine my passion for health and wellness, my love of this community, and my commitment to helping people achieve their goals. I can’t imagine anything better.
