About Marla

Who am I?

I am a mother.

I am a daughter.

I am a sister.

I am a friend.

I am a fitness enthusiast.

My goal has always been to make people feel COMFORTABLE, CAPABLE, and CONNECTED.

COMFORTABLE - in their own skin. Fitness is a lifestyle. The journey is forever changing…. as it should be. We change, so must our journey. Being comfortable is about learning to love yourself in every season.

CAPABLE - of accomplishing anything your heart desires. So many times I hear all the reasons “why” someone feels they can’t do something. I believe in focusing on the things you CAN do, not the things you CAN’T do. There is always a way.

CONNECTED - to one’s inner strength. What type of exercise do you enjoy? What’s your passion? I want to help you figure that out and fall in love with living a healthy lifestyle. Connecting with real people while getting in shape and having fun!



My journey with fitness began 23 years ago. After the birth of my second son, a co-worker convinced me to join our local health club. Shortly after, one of the group fitness instructors didn’t show up for class. Standing in a room full of members that were growing increasingly impatient (including myself), I was somehow talked into “filling in” that night….and well, as they say, the rest is history. Twenty-three years later I still love fitness just as much as I did all those years ago. I love every second of it!
