About Marty


I am a wife, mother of 3, a Master Personal Trainer and Nutritional Guidance Counselor .Most importantly, I am here, doing this, because I have experienced first hand that God not only desires to help us reach our health and fitness goals, but He has the perfect plan that will lead us to a lifestyle of freedom and self-control. I have come to know that true health is more than just having a strong and healthy body-though that is something we should all enjoy. True health also includes a strong spirit and soul. It is when our spirits are full and our minds are strong that living a healthy lifestyle becomes easy.

God’s desire for all of us is life, peace and joy in every area . No matter who you are, where you are in life, or what fitness level you are at, there is always room for improvement-you can always go higher. We simply can not exhaust God’s ability to make us better. I believe with all of my heart that God has called my team and I to equip you and your family with what you need to go higher, spirit soul and body.

Marty’s testimony (in summary)

At the age of 8, I began turning to food for comfort. Food became my friend and my coping mechanism for stress for many years to come. Though I was “pudgy” at times, my unhealthy relationship with food was not that evident until the age of 15, when I stopped growing. I became not only overweight, but as a teenage girl, hugely aware of the pressure to be thin. I associated thinness with beauty, value and acceptance and being overweight meant ridicule, failure and eventually, self hatred. I would spend the next 15 years of my life fighting this war, struggling for freedom and searching for answers. Either overeating or on a diet, “normal eating” was something that was no longer familiar to me-I simply could not control what I ate.
Even those closest to me were unaware of the daily struggle I faced. I was in bondage and I was beginning to lose hope that I would ever be free. Though I had asked God for help numerous times I continued to fail. I knew something was missing. I did however know that He loved me and that there had to be a way out. I made a decision that I would never turn back from, a decision to seek God in this area with every ounce of my being. And God did show me the way- to freedom, to transformation and to a strong and healthy body. When I made that decision, I told God, that if He would help me conquer this issue, I would share what He showed me with all who would listen. And, I have never stopped learning more from Him and will never stop seeking more from Him. That is why I became a master personal trainer, nutritional guidance counselor, author and speaker. He called me here for you. And to the best of my ability (with His help and the support of my team) I will do all that I can to help you reach your goals, maximize your potential and enjoy a higher quality of life.
