Meagan Sbat - Owner
When I was 18 years old I joined the United States Marine Corps where I served two tours overseas. During my time in the service my fitness was put to the test daily. This rigorous training caused me to become passionate about my health and well-being.
As I grew in the Marine Corps I became sincerely enthusiastic about helping others reach their fitness goals and upholding those goals to the highest standards. I realized that when my time in the service came to an end I did not want my time as a motivator and fitness enthusiast to end. I wanted to encourage others to “Make It Happen.”
I am lucky to be surrounded by incredible students and an unbelievable team day in and day out.

I grew up in Chichester and graduated from Plymouth State where I really figured out exactly what it was I wanted to be a part of.
I have played sports in some capacity year round for my entire life. Whether that was out on the field as a kid or playing 4 sports a year in high school, athletics and physical activity have always been a huge part of my life.
It may be hard to believe but most of my life was spent as someone who was very overweight and it cost me major opportunities to do the things I loved on a larger stage when I was younger. To this point I have lost nearly 100lbs and feel better than I ever have in my life. This, along with my love for athletics, is what drives me to help you become the best you can be.
Whether that is getting in the shape you want to be in terms of weight and strength, or to increase speed and explosiveness for competition, I love it all. I am extremely excited for the opportunity to help any and all who want to make a difference in their life, no matter how small or how large the goal.

I grew up in North Conway playing sports from when I could walk all the way through college where I was captain of my cross-country team. Growing up I was seen as the “chubby kid” by all my friends, and sports was my way to escape the way I was seen. I was very dedicated to my training for every sport I participated in and worked to be the best player I could be.
Into my second year of running college country I had an injury which changed my entire fitness career. I got bursitis in my hip which made distance running impossible for myself. I went from running 70+ miles a week to zero, and had to figure out how I would keep my fitness up. I had an amazing influence from a personal trainer that helped me learn about strength training and how I could keep building on my athleticism without running. I was also lucky to have a great athletic trainer to help my recover from my injury. Seeing how both of these people were able to help me in such a hard time was so influential to me, and it helped me decide I wanted to help others on their fitness journey.
I have been in the fitness industry for three years now and it’s been nothing but a blessing! The connections I have been able to build as well as seeing progress from people in their training has been amazing. I am so grateful and to have the opportunity to join the Get Fit NH team and take my knowledge to the next level with an awesome team!

I have always been an active person playing sports growing up. It wasn't until my sophomore year at Prospect Mountain Highschool, that I realized my passion for fitness. That's when I took weightlifting as one of my electives. At first, I was probably just as nervous as anybody else is when first stepping into a gym. Having no prior experience or knowledge I found myself a little intimidated. I quickly found out how warm and receptive everyone was.
After a while I started to become better acclimated and fell in love with the routine of working out. I started to feel better about myself both physically and mentally. The best part of it all was hearing all the compliments I was receiving. It's always good to acknowledge the hard work you put in, but hearing it from others always gave me gratitude and motivation. I even motivated some of my family members to start exercising.
I am always trying to improve myself and learn new things, especially when it comes to health and fitness. That's why I'm constantly trying to be better and achieve personal goals. But I realize helping someone else achieve their goals and success is even more gratifying than my own. And after seeing how I could impact my family to better themselves I knew I wanted to become a coach. That way I could use the knowledge and experience I'd gain to help everyone live a happier, healthier life. I'm ecstatic to be part of the Get Fit NH team, as I continue to grow to be the best coach I can be.

I grew up playing sports from a young age and into college. I loved being physically active and competitive in soccer and crew. Participation in sports resulted in various injuries, which included two shoulder surgeries and two knee surgeries. This propelled my passion of exercise into helping others through their injuries and learning ways to reduce the risk of injury. I worked at Get Fit NH from 2011-2015 and I loved my work with the Get Fit NH Family. In 2015 I made a career change and accepted a clinical position at Boston Children's Hospital because I wanted to explore nursing as a potential career. While I loved the patients and families, I found out that nursing was not for me. In January 2017 I hit my lowest with depression and exhaustion. I wasn't even sure it was worth living. Fortunately, I received the treatment I needed and with the support of my family and friends, I am now on a positive forward direction in my life. In September 2017, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia which forced me to leave my position at Children's Hospital. Initially, the pain was so bad I could not drive because I couldn't grip the steering wheel. I was not able to walk for longer than 20 minutes without my feet feeling like they were broken. With treatment, the pain has improved but it is something I deal with daily. I share my story to show that life can be messy - physically, mentally and emotionally. Life does not always go as we planned. I am committed to getting my health back, but I have learned it is a process and you need support. I am excited to be back at Get Fit NH because I am passionate about helping others through their process and challenges. Together we can achieve our goals!
I have my Bachelor's Degree in Exercise Science from The University of New Hampshire and working on my recertification as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the National Strength and Conditioning Association.
