Marylou Garcia - ASCM CPT / TRX COACH
My passion for health and fitness started at a young age as I participated in numerous sports throughout my childhood and into adolescence. I served in the Army while remaining active in volleyball and various team sports. With the addition of my second daughter, I committed myself to transforming my body and explored weight lifting, strength training, and bodybuilding competitions. My joy and confidence soared, so much so that it inspired me to assist others so they could feel the same.Whether your goal is to start an exercise program, increase strength and toning, weight loss or sports conditioning, I have the knowledge, skills, expertise, and experience to help you reach your goals.

I believe that there is nothing more powerful than the collaborative effort between two people striving to become the best versions of the themselves, and nothing more rewarding than the connection gained through these experiences.
