Health Excelled was founded with the mission of Healthier and Happier people. Traditional health care is failing us. 7/10 people are dying from chronic disease. One out of 2 Americans have a chronic disease and 91% of all prescriptions filled are for chronic disease. While chronic disease may now be a common occurrence it is NOT normal and it doesn’t have to happen to you. It is not normal to suffer from chronic disease. It is not normal to need a fistful of medications. At Health Excelled we do not manage disease- we promote health.
Using an ancestral healthcare approach we empower the individual to optimize Healthy Conspiracy’s 5 pillars of health:
- Functional Fitness (using CrossFit methodology)
- Proper Breathing
We will meet you where you are in your health journey. Whether you are an elite athlete looking to be faster and stronger or a couch potato who has difficulty walking to the mailbox, we can help you meet your goals. We coach both ends of the spectrum at Health Excelled. All that is required of you is an open mind and the will to improve.
There are many elements that go into making a world class facility. From the training components like having enough space and equipment to practical components like location and parking to recovery / rehab components like an infrared sauna, CrossOver symmetry and swim spa. Our 14,000 square foot facility has all the necessary components to help you get fit and stay fit for life. We believe one of the most important parts of your fitness journey is your “coach for life”. Our coaches are not only experts in their specialty. They truly care about YOUR success.
Founder Sara Barnett - Health Coach / Lead Trainer
I've been health conscious most of my life. Members of my family are not long lived or healthy - Inspiring me to become a nurse more than 20 years ago (practicing anesthesia for the last 15).
At 38 years old, I found myself lying on the coach with NO energy, constant headaches, joint pain, mood swings, irritable bowel, insulin resistance, frequent depression and popping economy sized bottles of motrin to get through the day. This was all while trying to follow conventional wisdom of eat less, move more. I was even a strict vegan for about 3 years while I pulled clumps of hair out of the drain after every shower.
It wasn't my fault and it isn't your fault. The changes are very simple, but not easy.
I have spent the last 10 years taking back my health and learning what does work. Helping others become Healthier and Happier has become my mission, my purpose.

During the 2017 race season, I came in 7th female at Tougher Toronto, gained contender status by running 25 miles at Toughest Mudder Chicago, and finally reached my goal of running 50 official miles at Worlds Toughest Mudder 2017. I truly believe this would not have been possible with out the help of Tommy, Sara, Haylee, and the rest of the HC tribe. - Melk Kowalkowski

They take the time to get to know each member in order to provide a workout that meets your individual needs. They are always present and engage with each athlete throughout the class to ensure proper form & technique. They motivate you to challenge yourself, but also encourage you to listen to your body.

Anyone, regardless of age or fitness level , can meet their health goals and have fun in the process! I love the personalized instruction and feedback. They really want to know what your goals are and empower you to reach them. CrossFit was never something I thought I would be able to do. One step into Health Excelled proved me wrong.
