Marie's dream vacation would be to spend 3 months travelling all of Europe. Her favorite book(s) are the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the Life of Pi! Marie loves animals and spends most of her time with her husband and 2 standard poodles.
I have had a passion for fitness my entire life. I previously worked in the fitness industry for 14 years managing multi-million dollar fitness studios and as a certified personal trainer and group exercise instructor. I took a break from the fitness world to work in the corporate world for 10 years and I realized how much I missed working with people to help them reach their fitness goals. I started as a member at Body Language several years ago, I soon realized that I wanted to get back into teaching group fitness classes. The community atmosphere at Body Language is so supportive and like nothing I have ever experienced at any other fitness or yoga studio. I am currently ZUMBA® and R.I.P.P.E.D.™ trained. Carri Lee is my Zumba Team partner. We hope to see you in one of our classes soon.
Marie instructs the following:
The barre is used as a prop to balance while doing exercises that focus on isometric strength training (holding your body still while you contract a specific set of muscles) combined with high reps of small range-of-motion movements
Dance fitness class which incorporates Latin and international dance music and moves. Most popular fitness class.
This class will utilize both traditional and contemporary Pilates to enhance core strength, promote flexability and create long lean muscles.
