Hi, I’m Sarah! – I Empower Women
Because every woman deserves to go from having a baby to feeling like a ninja warrior!
Welcome to Core Exercise Solutions, where I teach women how to strengthen their body in a way that produces max results without wasting time.
My passion is helping women quit doing ineffective exercises that are not achieving the change they want so they can feel stronger, experience less aches and pains and have more time for the things they love!
At Core Exercise Solutions, we cover everything from general fitness, to injury resolution by doing workouts that count. My primary goal is to create an educational experience where women can not only learn but also connect with other women. Knowledge is power, the more we know about our bodies, the faster we will see results. So, let’s get learning!
Great Videos on Post Baby Recovery: Pelvic Floor and Abdominal Separation (Diastasis)
“Sarah is amazing! This program has helped me so much. After 2 kids in less than 2 years, I’ve been having low back and midback pain, mild incontinence, and a 2 finger diastisis. My diastisis closed after the first session!! My posture looks great, I’ve had no leaking, and my low back feels so much better (and when i doesn’t, I can fix it!). She does a great job laying everything out systematically and is easy to understand. She even emailed me back personally with questions that I had. This has been a game changer for me – it’s empowering to understand your body better and to feel like you can fix yourself. I really feel like taking this class has prevented bigger injuries down the road. Thank you, Sarah!”

“I’m a mom of 5 ages 7, 5, 3 (almost 4), 2, and 9 months. I have my hands full and I love it. I have had c-section with all of my kids too, so I’ve got some abdominal issues. I had a diastasis recti that measured 4.5 fingers and thanks to Sarah Ellis Duvall it is completely closed at the top and down to 2 fingers around my belly button, and that’s after only a couple weeks of work!!”

What people are saying about Dr. Sarah
“I went to Sarah after three years of chronic hamstring pain. I’ve gone to six doctors, done two different types of massage therapy and two rounds of physical therapy, all of which helped only a little. Then I went to Sarah. She educated me on the true cause of my injury. I am back running pain free for the first time in years.
Sarah has literally given me the therapy for a head-to-toe remodel, improving my posture to strengthening my toes. I now have a toolbox of knowledge and exercises and because of Sarah, I can sit and stand at my desk and drive my car pain-free.”
-Ingrid (Avid Runner and Mom)
‘Sarah is certainly well above any personal trainer or physical therapist I have worked with before. With her PT background, she knows the structure and mechanics of the body inside and out, along with a multitude of exercise solutions for various challenges. The other trainers I have worked with just don’t have that degree of proficiency, and the physical therapists I’ve worked with don’t have the fitness perspective.”
– Rob S. (Exercise Enthusiast)
“Following a sports injury and four years of rehab (including physical therapy, chiropractics, acupuncture, tui na, massage, and work with a Sports Medicine hip specialist), it took only two sessions with Sarah to get answers and solutions to my underlying issues. I am finally getting back into the sports I have missed for so long and love feeling my inner athlete come back out again!”
– Laura Beth E. (Momma and Athlete)
“After a car accident, I have been in and out of physical therapy for roughly a year. I started working with Sarah and received a custom workout that allowed me to feel great in no time.”
-Angela M. (Ready to feel great again)
“Sarah’s program works fast! After one week of going through Workout 1, I saw a difference in the automatic firing of my pelvic floor. After 3 weeks, I saw improvements in my pelvic floor after sex that I had forgotten were not normal. However, perhaps the bigger impact for me was an awareness of how all the systems in my body work together. Sarah does a great job of explaining the science, the nuances of why each part of an exercise is important, and providing alternatives if an exercise is not quite working for where your body is at that time. Sarah’s passion for her work comes through in this program and in her dedication to helping each individual achieve a more functional body through the question and answer feedback she provides. All of these combine to make a very effective program.”
– Monica L (Mom of 2)
“I was very impressed with the comprehensive approach to the pelvic floor issue which I had previously considered as an isolated problem. Plus, no more crunches! “
–Mary Kay (Very Active Young Grandma)
“Sarah does an amazing job not only describing the exercises but also explaining the importance of doing them. The videos are very personable and make you feel like you are talking to a friend.
I especially enjoyed the information about Stress and Urge Incontinence and the helpful/real-life tips. I realized, through watching the series, I have been hanging from my pregnant belly, which is causing a lot of my pain. Learning to engage my core even just a little bit has made a difference.
The information and very artistic picture regarding the diaphragm and pelvic floor assisted me in being able to switch from pushing down to drawing up. It was a neat discovery to make and one that changed my pelvic floor instantly. Sarah’s passion for the material is both energizing and motivating!”
–Sabrena (Pregnant Momma of Two)
“After only doing one of Sarah’s exercises for the pelvic floor, I already feel a difference! I’m not worried about peeing when I laugh as much anymore!”
–Stacie (Mom of 3)

“In 1 session Sarah completely fixed my pelvic floor issue by giving me a great rotational exercise from her video. I no longer feel like I can barely make it the bathroom or worry about leaking! I could hardly believe how easy and fast it worked.” –Cynthia (Pilates Instructor and Avid
–Cynthia (Pilates Instructor and Avid Biker)
“Sarah has tremendous insight and knowledge of the inner workings of the body. I appreciate her unique approach to training muscles. It certainly works! I particularly value her understanding of postpartum bodies and how to restore them.
I spent years with other PTs and chiropractors trying to solve my postpartum weakened SI joint and hip pain issue. Nothing worked until I spent one morning in the company of Sarah. I am so grateful to her for giving me the tools to reclaim my body and making it better than it’s ever been before.”
