Meet Sabrina Sarabella, the voice behind Daily Cup of Fitness. Sabrina has been teaching and educating people for 14 years in the fitness world. She has a BS in Exercise Science from the University of Delaware and is currently getting her MS in Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport.  

What made you want to start your own fitness blog?
As a fitness professional I wanted to be able reach my clients every day and not just the once or twice a week that I get to see them in person so I decided to start to write a short tip everyday that I thought would keep them motivated and then it turned into a daily blog.

What is a perk of being a fitness blogger?
I am able to keep on top of the latest fitness trends and share it with my clients and friends. I am also able to reach a large amount of people daily and educate them on living a healthy and fit lifestyle.

How much time do you put into your blog?
Between doing research, writing and promoting my blog about 1-3 hours a day.

What is the coolest perk or compliment you have received?
The coolest perks is the satisfaction of people telling me that they look forward to the tip of the day and how to make small lifestyle changes that make a big difference.

What is your favorite work out routine?
I love all types of workouts but some of my favorites are power yoga, pilates reformer and strength training with plyometrics.

What advice do you give people in your blogs?
Every day I give a new tip on how to incorporate fitness and a healthy lifestyle into your daily life.

When did you first know that this was the right career path for you?
I knew from a very young age. I went to college to study sports and exercise science because I knew I wanted to help people become happier and healthier.  My mother was always into fitness and living a healthy life and we used to go to the gym together and workout with a trainer since I was in high school.  I learned to love working out from a very young age and couldn’t picture my life with out it!

When did you have your first “aha moment”?  

I can’t really think of a particular moment… There are sometimes that I run into an old friend or get an email from someone that says I love your  daily pots and look forward to them everyday.  When I find out that people read my blog and look forward to the daily tips it makes my hard work worth all the time I put into helping and educating people.  

How long have you been teaching and educating people in the world of fitness?
 I have been a personal trainer and educator for 14 years.  I hope to one day open a wellness center and write a few books that will help to make the world a healthier place!!
How do you motivate people to work out?
I like to believe that my love and passion for working out is infectious and that when clients train with me or take my group classes the energy I give off is contagious.
