q/ when it comes to training on film sets, where has that work taken you? Sahra/ i enjoy the on-set life of an actor: each time you travel to a set and are far from home, you become a little insular family supporting each other. i’ve had the privilege of being inside these families and experiencing the joy of giving various actors Essentrics classes to keep their energy up, tone their bodies, and relieve their stresses. i loved my 6-week in Budapest with Sarah Gadon. other Canadian actresses i got to know and work with on that set were Tatiana Maslany and Megan Follows. we would do a workout and then cook healthy meals for the crew. i also enjoyed getting to know Detroit on a movie set with Lily Cole; the city is redeveloping in an exciting way! the MGM Spa in Detroit is one of the best i’ve ever been to. i was in Belfast this past November, where Sarah was filming Dracula, and now Manchester where Lily is preparing for her stage role as Helen of Troy. q/ summer is fast approaching and, personally, i need to tighten up the triceps. what Essentric move do you recommend that i can do almost anywhere? Sahra/ weight-free arm toning is one of our specialties! we work the arms throughout an entire Essentrics class, but we also have exercises dedicated to toning the arms.
q/ any plans to expand your brand further? a line of workout clothing perhaps? Sahra/ we are getting into the book business––publishing our first book titled Aging Backwards in October with Random House in Canada and Harper Collins in the US. and we are already working on several more books. also on our list: expanding our studios into other cities, and definitely a line of workout clothing! get more Essentrics workout videos on YouTube.
