I'm Sara Bayer, owner and head trainer at The Chasm Gym. The Chasm had been a dream of mine for years. It’s a place for good humans to connect through sweat and movement. It’s a place to play, to laugh, to overcome obstacles and break barriers. It’s a place for us to inspire each other with our differences and our stories. Together we can create a space where nobody is a stranger. Let’s fill the Chasm!


As a certified personal trainer for 15 years, I’m committed to constant improvement as a coach, leader and teammate. 


A life long athlete, I played basketball and softball at Cardinal Stritch University. I’ve trained jiu jitsu and kickboxing at several gyms in Milwaukee and in 2018, I played quarterback for the Wisconsin Dragons (a women’s semi-pro tackle football team based out of Milwaukee). I’m a casual snowboarder, and I enjoy the occasional obstacle course race. The greatest people I've known and the most valuable lessons I've learned were the result of sport, movement, sweat and fitness.
