About Mary

I’m an athlete, more so now, later in life. No, I don’t do anything amazing like running marathons. I’m just really fit. It wasn’t always that way. Born pre-Title Nine, there were no sports for girls. I grew up smoking with friends at the mall.  In my 30’s I quit smoking and began working out. I ran, lifted weights, and was physically active.

In middle age, working full-time, raising kids, I didn’t make time for exercise or self-care. I gained weight and began experiencing body pain and disfunction. I wanted to change, but where to start? Deciding to never diet again, I committed to eating healthy most of the time, but not to deprive myself when I really wanted to eat something.  I began to consistently make choices to eat fresh, wholesome foods that were good for my body. I committed to exercise, no matter the duration or type, at least 5 days a week, making it the most important thing I did each day. I lost weight. My pain and physical limitations disappeared. Fitter and healthier, I was motivated to become a Personal Trainer to share the joy of transforming oneself.

Now I am enjoying helping others become their healthiest self, mentally, and physically. FIT FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIFE!
