Sarah Holub

Chief Xperience Officer

What is the best part about your role at MaxStrength Fitness?
Being the Chief Xperience Officer is hands down the best position at MaxStrength
Fitness. Everyday I get the opportunity to engage with the most outstanding
individuals, YOU, our clients. Each client brings their own story, history, and
uniqueness and getting the chance to learn those stories is my favorite part about
being a part of the MSF family.

If you could be anywhere other than here, right this minute, where would you be?
In the Northwoods of Wisconsin with my two children and husband. Having been
born and raised in Northern Wisconsin we spent our summers and winters enjoying
the different recreational opportunities the state has to offer. The calm of the
Northwoods is not only comforting but rejuvenating. It is so important to me that
my two young children grow up experiencing the same comfort of the clear water
lakes, fishing, skiing, snowshoeing and spending time with family around a
campfire in the woods.

Outgoing, Loyal, Passionate
