Sarah Frick, Founder, The Works A Sweat Studio

The Works a Sweat Studio by Sarah Frick are soulful fitness studios located in Charleston, SC and Mount Pleasant, SC with sister studios The Works Cycle and The Works Renew. The Works believes that in sharing our stories we heal each other and ourselves and does so through movement and music.

Sarah Frick has been in the yoga and fitness industry for 16 years. After opening and operating two successful power yoga studios for 10 years in Charleston, South Carolina, Sarah sold both at the peak of their success to rebrand not only her fitness concept but herself. She wanted more than just a fitness experience. Sarah’s life had changed. She had changed. She had grown. She had experienced loss. She had experienced grief. And, ultimately, she had experienced grace.

Losing her first child, Grace, in early infancy was a pivotal point in Sarah’s life. It truly defined the buzz phrase “be present.” Losing Grace dropped Sarah into her body, into her heart, and into her life to truly see what was important and what mattered. From that, The Works Method started to bud and to take life.

This practice she created—The Works Method—is extremely physical. The class combines heat, vinyasa yoga flow, cardio, core, sculpt, body strength work, meditation, and oh-so-much heart work…all taught to a bumping playlist. Imagine you’re in a packed room and everyone is moving and breathing and sweating and not only are you being physically pushed but, at the same time, you’re being mentally stimulated to dissipate the excess and move through the roadblocks that you keep coming up against.
