Sarah Robb O’Hagan is the CEO of Flywheel Sports*, the fastest growing indoor cycling company.  She learned the hard way why professionals who thrive must ‘step up’, ‘stand out’ and ‘kick ass’. And, oh yeah, why it’s essential to repeat all of the above if you want to succeed!  Sarah is on the cutting edge as a leader in the fitness industry which is currently experiencing a major transformation through digital content and services. Prior to becoming Flywheel’s CEO, O’Hagan served as the global president of Gatorade, where she successfully led that business through a tough repositioning and turnaround. She’s also been the global president of Equinox, another luxury fitness company, where she reinvented their brand through a notable tech transformation. An executive, entrepreneur, and activist, O’Hagan is a high-energy combo of a strong business leader, fitness fanatic, mother of three, and has been listed as one of Forbes’ “Most Powerful Women in Sports” and one of Fast Company’s “Most Creative People in Business.”  She’s also the author of the terrific book Extreme YOU: Step Up. Stand Out. Kick Ass. Repeat. a kind of manifesto equipping people of all ages to take big risks, manage big failures and kick ass all the way to a successful career.  

*In November 2018 Sarah stepped down from Flywheel to explore a new professional adventure around her book:  Extreme YOU:
