Mary Hart

NASM CPT
CPR/AED Certified

I have been passionate about wellness/fitness since 2016. I believe realistic programming, consistency, and proper recovery is key to reaching your goals while improving overall mental and physical health. I coach with the knowledge that every body is different and has unique needs. And everybody deserves to enjoy movement! I want to teach people that exercise can be something to look forward to rather than something they “have to do”. I utilize resistance training as well as mobility, plyometric, and cardiovascular work to help clients reach their unique goals. 1 on 1 or group training. I have worked with a wide range of individuals including people of all ages and abilities, always finding ways to make workouts both fun and challenging!

Patrick Moran

PAT.jpg

Hello! My name is Patrick Moran. My fitness journey began at age 17 when I looked down at the scale and it read 260lbs. I was unhappy and ready for change. I started by changing my diet and understanding what I should and should not be putting in my body. Then my mother convinced me to go to a hot yoga class, I was hooked!  The weight started falling off and I was happy. The next step in my journey was to gain muscle. So I went to the gym, and tried every type of training under the sun. Bodybuilding, powerlifting, crossfit, functional exercises, bodyweight stuff. I tried it all. I had an issue though, I had a lot of back pain. I tried to fix it with every conceivable measure. I would foam roll for hours, stretch, yoga, chiropractor, massage, cryotherapy, physical therapy, everything!! At the peak of my pain I found a trainer who introduced me to the world of biomechanics. I began to train with respect to the gait pattern of a human. My back pain slowly went away. Now I want to share this with the world
