MEET JOSH & SARAH BOWMAR
Sarah has her undergraduate degree and MBA in marketing. She obtained her undergrad in three years and her MBA in 11 months. Post graduation, she began working at a digital marketing agency as well as began competing in fitness competitions- becoming nationally qualified in bikini. Sarah then realized her passion for fitness and helping others when she became fitness nutrition certified and started utilizing her online platforms through social media to help women all around the world.
In February 2014 during the weekend of the Arnold Classic in Columbus, Ohio, Josh and Sarah were both working out on a Saturday night and struck up a conversation. It was at that moment that it all changed. Our first date consisted of a meal. Which is where a pinnacle point in our relationship happened. Sarah “dropped the bomb” that she was a vegetarian. She wasn’t against eating meat, she was simply against supporting the farming and slaughtering of animals who lived horrible lives. With an open mind, she listened as Josh explained the benefits and necessities of hunting and conservation and how he was strictly a bowhunter. Josh says he will never forget it when she said: “Well I would eat something I killed”.
Shortly later, Sarah moved to Columbus on a leap of faith. Josh took her to their local pro shop where she bought her first bow. After 6 weeks of practicing, it was turkey season in Ohio. Sarah was able to harvest her first turkey with her bow and has been hooked ever since. We have since traveled the world together. We got married in 2015 and have built a multitude of businesses together and share so many passions.
Josh has always pushed his body to the extreme and it started with athleticism. He went to school for exercise physiology where he maintained a 4.0 GPA. He participated in three NCAA sports and was awarded NCAA 2x Academic All American and Double Athletic All American honors in the same year in javelin and the 4×4. Additionally, Josh broke four university records in track and field.
