Marisa is amazing! She has helped my girlfriend and me attain opposite goals (weight loss / toning vs. weight gain / bulking / energy), and we are both seeing such great results already. More importantly, Marisa is a needle in a haystack— a trainer who knows her stuff and has immense experience in fitness and nutrition, but also is the most professional, wonderful and personable human who cares deeply about each of her clients. She responds frequently and designs dynamic workout plans. She puts her soul into the work and it really makes a difference! We would highly recommend her to anyone who wants a uniquely fulfilling training experience.

Service was excellent. Tailored to your goals and definitely helped me get over the hurdle/fear of strength training. So positive and just great to work with. I had noticeable results in just a couple months.

When I started training with Marisa, I had no idea how to orient myself in a gym, program a workout, or properly lift a weight. She helped me gain not only physical strength, but confidence in the fitness space. She was extremely patient, helped with my form, and knew when to push me to a higher weight. Plus, she is sensitive to injuries, and always willing to work around them. She's a joy to be around and work with. Couldn't recommend more!!

Just started training with Marissa and she's been great so far! She's very committed, professional and flexible. She has created a personalized plan for me to be able to meet my goals and I'm confident that we'll be able to do it together. I will update this as we make progress!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I generally have a standard hourly rate, but do my best to meet clients where they are at in terms of paying for training. I never want finances to be a limiting factor for clients when it comes to reaching their goals. Whether it be a discounted rate, virtual training, or changing our training frequency to fit your budget, we can find a solution together! I also offer discounts if clients pay for multiple sessions up front.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    With each new client, I have a complimentary meeting to discuss their goals, lifestyle, previous experiences with exercise, and potential medical concerns. The goal of this meeting is for me to learn as much as I can about you, in order to create a program that's customized to your life and will help you reach your goals effectively. After our initial meeting, we set up a plan for training based on my recommendations as well as your schedule, lifestyle, and commitments. The goal is always to create an approach that is both sustainable and enjoyable.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have an Associate's degree in Exercise Science and a Bachelor's degree in Dance, and am certified as a personal trainer through ACE. I’m a Moderation365 certified nutrition consultant, and I also have a Kettlebell Athletics L1 certification.
