I wish I could tell you that I have always had a passion for fitness. But the truth is, I used to hate exercise. Not only did I hate exercise, I also used to be significantly overweight. 211 pounds, at a height of 5’2, to be exact.
I was a sophomore in college when I was at my heaviest, and going to school in Boulder, Colorado means you are surrounded by people who love to be active. I ran out of excuses to not go for a hike with friends, not go skiing, or to not go to a pool party. I finally decided to stop talking about losing weight, and start doing it. With the help of a personal trainer and a few nutrition courses, I began to find my strength and confidence again.
Two years after weighing in at over 200 pounds, through eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly, I weighed 115 pounds.
My journey to fitness has not been without it’s challenges. My weight fluctuated for years following my weight loss, because I lost interest in working out. Over the years, however, I made my return to the gym, and my weight has been steady ever since. I decided that I wanted to help people who are going through what I went through myself.
I became a personal trainer in June 2015, and it has been the most rewarding decision I have ever made. Because I have been there myself, I understand what it feels like to be uncomfortable in your body. My only goal as a trainer is to make sure you reach your goals. I tell my clients that they need to discover three things about themselves- what type of exercise is challenging for you, what type of exercise is easy for you, and what type of exercise you truly enjoy.
I love helping people find joy in fitness, and helping them feel better about themselves, both mentally and physically. If you are ready to take the next step in improving your health, please contact me for a consultation today!
I worked with Mary for nearly 9 months to get in the best shape of my life for my wedding. I’m a person who consistently goes to the gym and is active, but I wanted that little extra push so I gave personal training a try. I met Mary and it was a perfect match! Every time we met together, she had a very individualized plan on what we would work on taking my goals into consideration. I felt like she cared about my body as much as I did and I learned skills about strength training and cardio that will last a lifetime. In the end, not only did I get results beyond what I thought were possible, but I also gained a friend. I couldn’t have had a better experience!
By working w/ Mary my body has transformed to 60+ year old functional fitness I never dreamed possible! Her own mastery of yoga, Pilates & Muay Thai has given me many exercise options to stay healthy!
Mary is fantastic at troubleshooting your physical needs so that you can truly get the most out of her training sessions. She creates a balanced regimen that addresses the entire body in a way that is both healing and strengthening. I’ve never felt so productive in my exercises as I have with her. Truly above and beyond!
I’ve had the pleasure of being a client of Mary’s over the past two years, and I really appreciate her knowledge and professionalism as a personal trainer, along with her friendly personality. With some physical limitations from my old injuries, Mary always takes great care to select exercises that will work best for me. Each session is a nice mix of core, Pilates moves, TRX, kettlebells and cardio. She keeps me moving and makes it fun. I always feel more energized at the end of our hour together!
