Welcome to Live Alive Fit!
Hi! I’m Mary ~ Author, Inspirational Speaker, Board Certified Integrative Nutrition Health & Fitness Coach, and Mother, who is passionate about helping others create an amazing life they want to live, and deserve!
I get to live in beautiful Seattle, WA with my husband and two lovely daughters. As a native of the Pacific Northwest, I get to enjoy the outdoors all year round. You might find me taking walks, hiking, or gardening when I am not exercising in the clean, fresh air I am so grateful for. I am truly LIVING FULLY ALIVE, HEALTHY & FIT, and YOU can too!
Life wasn’t always as it seems. I endured debilitating back pain, weight gain, and living a life on the sidelines for many years, after a car accident, before I CHOSE to LIVE ALIFE FIT and take my life back. I was able to find balance in my own life in order to create more health for myself, family, and clients as well.
As a competitive athlete, mother of two and someone who works full time, I understand that balance in life is key. However, even with limited time, it is possible to make great changes in your life while being present in you and your family’s lives. I did. In 2009, I lay in bed, recovering from three slipped discs, sciatic pain and hardly being able to walk. I decided I didn’t want to live this way any longer. With hard work, belief, dedication and the motivation of a goal to “feel strong again – inside and out”, I began to see a light at the end of the tunnel.
I fully recovered, without surgery, became 80 pounds lighter, began walking, then running, competed in marathons, learned to swim at age 38, and started racing (not just completing) triathlons. It didn’t happen overnight, but it did happen. Now I am a full time mindset & health coach, yoga teacher, multisport coach, competitive athlete and enjoy every minute. Best of all, I GET to help others achieve greater health in their lives.
