Sarah Ferris - Owner

With a Physical Education degree from the University of Western Ontario, Sarah has always kept fitness at the centre of her life. She regularly competes in marathons, half marathons and triathlons – and has even raced cars professionally. Earlier in life, Sarah competed in the Gillette Challenge and won the title of “The fittest woman in Toronto.”

While living in California, circuit and interval training became an integral part of her physical conditioning. When she moved back to Toronto in 2007, she couldn’t find a boutique-style gym that offered the type of classes she loved in California. Ferris360 was born from her passion for highly effective, creative, fun and motivating workouts. With Ferris360, her goal is to offer her clients a unique workout that includes a combination of cardiovascular conditioning, strength training, plyometrics, core drills and stretching.
