Sarah Currie, MS RDN CDN and co-owner of Physical Equilibrium, is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and personal trainer. She is passionate about helping clients get strong and lean through proper strength training and nutrition strategies. Currie incorporates her extensive knowledge of anatomy and nutrition into her work with clients who are rehabbing an injury, want to improve performance, lose weight, live a healthier lifestyle, or who are managing clinical illnesses.
Currie received her B.A. in Business Administration from the University of Puget Sound in Washington State. She earned her M.S. in Clinical Nutrition from New York University and completed her Dietetic Internship at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital (now Mount Sinai Morningside and Mount Sinai West). Currie has worked in various clinical in-patient and out-patient settings over the years, but her private nutrition practice combined with her training experience is where she can really spend the time it takes to improve clients’ lives.
Currie began lifting weights in high school and saw the benefits from a young age, including improved sports performance and a leaner physique. Competing as a short sprinter for her collegiate track and field team is where she learned to power lift. Post-college she competed in numerous endurance events and has competed more than 10 triathlons, two marathons, and one century ride. In the following years, Currie shifted her sights from endurance training to body building. She has returned to her roots as an avid weight lifter and has participated in a local figure competition. She hopes to compete in more as soon as possible!

As a longtime client, I can honestly say that the trainers at Physical Equilibrium have changed my life. I have worked with Sara Dimmick, Sarah Currie and Eve Josephson over the years, and all are first rate. I truly believe Physical Equilibrium has some of the best trainers in New York City. The gym is located in midtown Manhattan and is very convenient to public transportation. It is a beautiful, light-filled space that feels very private. The trainers provide very personalized attention; everyone is there to work and to support one another. When I am there, I have none of the usual feelings of self-consciousness that I have experienced at other gyms.When I first started working with Sara Dimmick, I was a newbie to fitness. I had purchased memberships to various gyms throughout New York City, but I would either never go or I would quit within a couple of months. Sara started out by teaching me to incorporate strength training into my weekly routine. She developed a plan that kept me interested and motivated -- and because it fit with my existing lifestyle, it was sustainable. Before I knew it, I had lost weight and my cholesterol was way down -- all through exercise alone. After experiencing some health issues a few years ago, I did a good deal of research into the importance of diet and exercise in disease prevention and cure. I learned that a healthy lifestyle is the key to everything. I wanted to step it up a notch, so I again turned to Sara Dimmick and her partner, Sarah Currie. They helped me to prioritize myself and my health through a program of good nutrition, cardio and increased strength training -- with the added bonus of stress relief, a natural result of the exercise. This helped me tremendously. When the pandemic hit, Physical Equilibrium provided a seamless transition from in-person training sessions to virtual sessions via Zoom, which kept me from going off the rails during a time when it would have been easy to do so. As a result, I kept up my routine and stayed fit even during that difficult time. I feel very fortunate to have found Physical Equilibrium and cannot say enough about the trainers and their level of expertise and commitment. I am a believer.
