" I have been involved with Marlene and Fitwithin since 2012. At that time I wanted to just find a way to relax and destress. I grew to love yoga. It has now become such a large, integral part of my life. Marlene has been and continues to be an amazing guide. She is a source of strength and support in so many ways. I love the many different yoga classes and the way that Marlene and her team incorporate strength building in with yoga. All of the classes are unique and beneficial. One of the ones that is very good and helpful is the Yoga Therapy class. It is a self massaging class using foam rollers, tennis balls, 'coregeaous' balls and so much more. It is for facial release and it is simply amazing how much it helps. Flex and Flow with weights is another class that incorporates yoga poses with weights for an intense but wonderful workout, some cardio too which is great as well. I have also taken some of the workshops. One I took was last fall the '30 day challenge', again such support and guidance for the time. Lots of valuable nutritional advice given. I did lose inches doing this and enjoyed it very much. For me the fall challenge is the best time to take part as it is the beginning of a 'new season', almost like New Years, time to renew. I cannot say enough about the Chakra workshops that Marlene runs. Truly words cannot be said, one has to experience it because it is empowering. All in all I am so very grateful for having found Fitwithin and for Marlene, Paul, Sarah and Karen. All of them bring their own vibrance, respect and love to the classes. I always leave feeling renewed and rejuvenated. One very important thing I have learned though is to always or as best as can be done, be in the moment. Namaste. "
" I am so grateful that I found FitWithin 5 years ago. I signed up for classes because I needed stress relief and wanted to do something for myself. What I got was way more than I could have imagined. Marlene and the classes totally helped me through a really difficult time in my life and helped me get healthier and stronger inside and out.
FitWithin has a welcoming, relaxing and fun atmosphere and all of the instructors are amazing! I love that throughout the year FitWithin offers fitness challenges for those who wish to participate, it's a great way to keep me accountable and get back on track with my fitness and nutrition. I am not a competitive person, but I have signed up for a number of the fitness challenges, just to push myself. I have NEVER been able to do a push up, but the challenges and weekly classes helped me push myself and I am so much stronger now. I was able to finally do a full push up!
Their nutritional programs have taught me so much about healthy eating and have helped me adjust my food choices and eating habits. FitWithin offers so much support and encouragement that it really helps me continue to focus on my goals. I wanted to be more fit and healthy when I turned 40 last year and I have to say that I have never been stronger or in better shape! Thank you so much Marlene, Sarah, Paul and Karen! You are all amazing and I am so grateful! "
" I’ve been attending classes at FitWithin for the almost 2 years now. Previous to this, I went to a variety of fitness classes which were 'okay' but from the first class at FitWithin, I was addicted! The level of detailed instruction has transformed my fitness level. Understanding how to properly do an exercise, which muscle groups I should be using, how to modify an exercise to accommodate for sore body parts (we all have those!) and how to breathe effectively has made the world of difference. I used to have chronic back and neck issues which sidelined me from life activities but since I’ve attended FitWithin, I am so much stronger and have greatly reduced these issues. My body is stronger and I benefit from that in all my daily activities and that's important but FitWithin is so much more than that. The classes have helped me connect my body movements to my mental and spiritual well-being. Especially in stressful situations, I am better able to connect with my inner strength thanks to Marlene and her team! "
" From a simple thing such as my clothes fitting better, to a deep understanding of how to remain calm in stressful situations... that is what FitWithin and Marlene's team has given me. I could never thank you enough for helping me transform my life. "
