Sara Fakih, a London-based ICON, is an avid dancer and loves yoga. Sara fell in love with POUND when she discovered that she could drum her way into keeping fit using isometric and plyometric exercises along with Pilates conditioning techniques. She still remembers the first time she ever tried POUND, saying: “my face was grinning throughout! Every track brought something new and exciting and the tunes were brilliant!” She celebrates that in POUND her participants range in age from 18 all the way through to 60 and uses her fun-loving style to connect her posse members as a family.
If you could choose your own rockstar nickname, what would it be and why?
AVA - It's short, sassy, strong but sweet! (Feel like that really describes me)
What activity do you do that makes you feel most like yourself?
DANCING - I love Music & I love to dance and to move to the beat - I am myself completely and feel so free when Im dancing to music!
Whom do you secretly admire?
Alicia Keys has a real powerful aura about her; her music touches the hearts of many and is so real! She has the art to play the piano so beautifully whilst creating amazing melodies and then adding to that with her soulful voice and meaningful lyrics!
I also love how she recently campaigned to not wear make up, to make a stand for women that struggle to love themselves enough, that they feel that they have to hide and or pile on the make up everyday to feel accepted in todays society! Yes we all love a bit of make up to make us feel beautiful but their are levels - the powerful message from this was to say we need to love ourselves first and foremost!
How do you show love for others?
By showing that I am there for them, by listening to them & making others feel comfortable and positive. I think spreading love and positivity is imperative in the world we live in - we need to lift each other up; not compete but encourage & motivate others, help them to love themselves and allow that love to spread like wild fire!
What superpower would you most like to have?
TO FLY!! I think the feeling would be so breathtaking! To be able to see the beautiful sights of that wonderful nature we have and take for granted in this world. Flying over the world with a complete sense of Freedom.
