About GoGirl

GoGirl Fitness Studio offers personal training to women of all fitness levels. Our mission is to provide safe, affordable and fun fitness programs that empower women to take control of their heath and wellness in a judgment free, community oriented fitness environment.

Here at GoGirl Fitness Studio, you won’t find a lot of noisy machines and huge classes.  What you WILL find is a fun & supportive atmosphere that will help motivate you to achieve more results than you would on your own. We call ourselves a studio instead of a gym for a reason.  Our studio offers a small, clean environment that allows you to come and work out in comfort without distractions. We ONLY offer personal training and group fitness programs. Avoid all the spectators and distractions of a larger gym. Our focused personal environment allows for better results in a shorter time.

Inside the Studio

Our studio is designed to encourage a homey, comfortable atmosphere. We want you to feel welcome here and exercise with friends. We motivate each other by offering support and friendly competition.  We don’t yell and scream at you during workouts; we encourage you and show you how to do it. We’re not drill sergeants barking orders at you, we’re your biggest cheerleaders, encouraging you to find the fun in fitness and figure out how fitness fits you and amplifies your fitness goals.

We have fun while working hard!  So here you’ll see us in our element: exercising, having fun, and supporting each other.

I am a classically trained dancer who began lifting weights once I got to college in 2009. In 2013 I became an ACSM Certified Personal Trainer and have been training clients ever since. Around the same time I became a trainer I also got into competitive bodybuilding and in 2018 became a professional women’s bodybuilder. I specialize in physique transformation but work primarily with lifestyle clients who are looking to improve general health and fitness through exercise and nutrition. Emphasizing education and awareness, my goal is to help my clients create lasting and sustainable progress.




I’m Sarah and I have lived in Wilmington 20 years since coming to UNCW! My fitness journey has been woven into my personal and professional life including high school sports, outdoor adventures, personal training and many things in between! I am certified as a Personal Trainer, Group Fitness Instructor, and Health Coach by the American Council on Exercise and have been teaching and training in the fitness and wellness world for six years! I have worked with people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities and enjoy helping people find what they enjoy about fitness and wellness and connecting them to the feeling of fun in the process! 

Matt Johnson | Owner of GoGirl Fitness



Hi, my name is Matt Johnson. My fitness journey started about 20 years ago as a developing multiple-sport athlete. At the time, I played for fun not knowing that it would lead me to where I am today. Although sports still play a very large role in my life today I still have to stay physically active outside of them to enjoy them and stay competitive. I hold a BS in Exercise Science, ACE certified personal trainer, and hold other fitness related certifications. I am dedicated to helping others begin their fitness journey with a positive and enjoyable interaction.
