I am also an RRCA Certified Level I Run Coach. I hold an M.Ed in Recreation,Park, and Leisure Studies from the University of Minnesota- School of Kinesiology. My goal is to provide fun and effective fitness programs that improve your overall fitness level while providing you with the positive support, encouragement, and proper workouts to help you attain your goals! I believe that whatever goal you have, it is attainable. I love to motivate people and drive them to challenge themselves, and I hope my energy and love for fitness will help encourage other people. I thrive on trying something new and enjoy helping others discover the joy of running whether they are a beginner or an experienced runner looking to go to the next level. I believe in my athletes and their abilities and seeing them succeed is such a rewarding and positive experience. I enjoy helping people discover the joy of racing whether they are a beginner or experienced athlete. Over the past 5 years, I have coached many runners who successfully completed their first races or set new personal records while igniting their passion for distance running. I also train athletes for triathlons and duathlons and provide guidance and workouts to those looking to compete in a triathlon. I have completed 52 half-marathons,4 marathons, and two 70.3 half-Ironmans. When not running I can be found cooking, spending time with family, ‘playing’ with my amazing fitness friends, and competing in sprint triathlons and duathlons all over the midwest.

    "I am not a runner" is what I told Mari when I first started working out with her. She brought me from that mindset to completing two duathlons and my first half marathon. Mari's constant support, positive attitude and wealth of knowledge have brought me to a level of fitness I never imagined I would attain. I can't wait to see what the future holds for me in the land of fitness with Mari as my guide!!

    Mari has been training me in biking, running, boot camps and even nutrition! She has helped me achieve my goals and push me forward to even more! I have found Mari to be very inspirational and motivational. She is always there with fitness and nutrition answers. Mari constantly provides me with additional and varying training schedules! I am 44 years old. I am in better shape than I have ever been in. I have Mari to thank!!

    Mari provides great support towards my fitness goals! Her advice and knowledge is amazing, you can tell she has done “homework” when it comes to fitness and nutrition. If you have questions or concerns, problem areas or something isn’t working right , she will do the research and find a program that works for you. Her support doesn’t end with your sessions…. I Can’t get enough of her!
