Introduction: My name is Ariel and I am the owner of Motivational Madness. I have a passion for helping others lead a healthy and happy life through fitness and life coaching. I am an ACE certified Personal Trainer and Behavior Change Specialist with over 8 years of experience working with individuals from all walks of life. I customize each of my programs to the individual because I don't believe in the one size fits all approach. I started this business because I believe in the power of online coaching and love being able to connect with others all across the country.

Motivational Madness is an AMAZING business! I can't say enough about the value, expertise, professionalism and enthusiasm you get for your investment. Quite simply the coaching is exceptional. Always professional, Ariel will help you reach your health goals, meeting you where you are in your journey... she works with you as an individual to tailor a specific program (with whatever equipment you have) which challenges your limitations to push you to a new level of fitness. I have been working with Ariel for over 10 months and lost over 40 pounds, she has taught me a foundation of healthy workout and lifestyle habits. In my mid-forties, I have also appreciated Ariel's skill helping me through a comprehensive warm up and stretching routine and the occasional sore muscle. She has taught me to appreciate my individual strength and where I need to focus effort to balance my body. The focus on functional movement has dramatically increased my flexibility and confidence, as well as gotten rid of knee pain and shin splints. When I started with Motivational Madness, I was ready for a change and I was ready for someone else to tell me how to get there. Ariel taught me to appreciate my body, to let go of the scale and frankly, to just show up for myself. If you are willing to show up and follow her lead, then I highly recommend Motivational Madness and Ariel to get you there. You can trust in a professional with over a decade of expertise and infectious enthusiasm. She coaches without judgement, helps you connect with your body and find your inner strength. I loved that I don't think about what I need to do, I just show up, use what I equipment I have, build my strength and confidence and own my own journey. Recommend with ZERO reservations.

“I’ve known Ariel for a long time. I’ve trained with her for many years off and on since 2015. Ariel always knew how to push me and make me work my butt off. Figuratively of course since more booty was the whole idea. So when she finally launched her own programs, I had to be part of it. It’s certainly impressive to have someone kick your butt while not even being there. I haven’t worked out with her in a long time. The one on one assessment before getting started with Mountain Madness was key to the program. She could see what my body was doing before sending out the videos. This helped because she knew what I was capable of doing and not doing. She was able to coach me effectively because of the one on one. Whenever I had questions about something in the program or even not about the program, Ariel was there. She let me know ways to make it harder. And ways to make it easier if needed. In the five years that I have known this person, she has taught me more than I ever thought she would. She’s been a friend I never knew that I needed. Where ever, whenever and however I can, I will find a way to learn from this woman I will. There is always so much more to learn and even though I’m finished with Mountain Madness, my journey with Ariel is never over! On to the next one!”

I have known and worked with Ariel for many years and I will be the first one to say she is one of a kind. I started working out with her in Columbia, SC. She was my personal trainer at Anytime Fitness on Devine. She had me in the best shape! I can’t say enough about her. She’s the most caring and genuine person I know. You won’t find anyone better than her. It broke my heart when she moved and I haven’t found a trainer like her. When she started her own business I was the first one to sign up for one of her programs because that’s how good she is. I trusted her and she did not disappoint. I am now doing one on one high level life coaching with Ariel and it’s fantastic! She has me moving my life in the right direction and if it weren’t for her I wouldn’t have had the courage to do things I’m doing. She’s the best! If anyone ever has the chance to work with Ariel, do it! I promise you won’t regret it! I promise she loves what she does and she does it well. Don’t miss out - she’s the best! Karen Elliott

Ariel is incredibly kind and non-judgmental. Her workouts have a great pattern but also never get stagnant. She is so supportive, too! She is also so enthusiastic and helps you feel like you are strong and powerful. I am so grateful to have been a part of her program and I am so excited to start it for a second time!

For two years I have had the pleasure of knowing Ariel. To have her as my trainer has truly changed my life for the better. She never gave up on me even when I wanted to give up on myself. She has the positivity, raw experience, and motivation to help you get to where you want to be or the place you have never been before. I’ve started working with her twice a week for the past couple months now on a more personal level. I can feel and see the change. I’ve never had more confidence in myself. I’m forever grateful and forever glad to work with someone like her. She is one in a million!

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

    Initial consultation to discuss goals and to see if we're a good fit.

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

    ACE Certified Personal Trainer and Behavior Change Specialist Massage Therapy Background and Reiki Certified

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I started this type of work back in 2008 when I went to massage school. It was there that I developed a passion for helping others feel better through massage and other forms of myofascial release. After massage school I branched out into personal training and worked for the same gym franchise for 8.5 years training clients from all walks of life and fitness levels. After several years of coaching fitness I became interested in behavior change and helping my clients develop healthier habits outside of the gym. I became a certified Behavior Change Specialist and when COVID shut down my gym I developed programming to help our clients navigate this "new normal" through behavior change coaching. Discovering that I could make a positive difference virtually in both fitness and behavior change coaching is what prompted me to start my own online coaching business.
