Qualifications: Nike Sponsored Athlete and Master Trainer.
Personal History: My interest in dance and fitness developed at a young age. My mom used to dance around the house and worked out every single day. Wanting to be like her, I jumped in with both feet! I watched all the fitness shows on ESPN, read every magazine, and danced along with the videos on MTV. After high school, I took a different route and studied business finance. I worked on Wall Street and for big magazines, like Gourmet and Mademoiselle before leaving the corporate world to purse a career in inspiring others. Soon after I began teaching at Crunch, I was hired by MTV and the rest is history! As for my family status, I'm in a wonderful long-term relationship with an incredible man and am very happy.
Workout Philosophy: Always give 100% in everything you do. Going for things with totality produces great happiness and satisfaction in life. Working out with totality produces great health - and a kickin' body.
Success Story: I have two sisters, Marcia and Yvette, from Brooklyn, NY, that come to my class every single week. The first time they came, they had two left feet. Now, not only can they dance and learn choreography quickly, but they both have lost weight and look stronger, sexier, and more self-assured than ever before. They never miss class and even come during hail and thunderstorms! They recruit people all the time and say, "Marie will change your life! I can't explain it - you just have to come see for yourself!" I admire them both for sticking with it and discovering their own personal brilliance. They never give up and learning to dance has proven to them that they can do whatever they set their minds to.
