Marlee Dietert

Canfitpro PTS, Emergency First Aid CPR AED

Personal Training is what helped me to change and improve my life and I now enjoy helping others as a Certified Personal Training Specialist! I specialize in Pre and Post Natal Fitness, Resist-a-ball Levels 1 and 2, and Sport Specific training utilizing Plyometrics to help improve performance. Additional course knowledge equips me to train the Active Ager (senior clientele).

I believe an important part of living a healthy lifestyle is maintaining a strong and functional body. My aim is to help you identify your fitness goals through personal assessment, and design an exercise program that is specific to your needs. I will guide you through every exercise and motivate you through each workout. I want to help you find a sustainable, enjoyable lifestyle that will encourage a stronger body, improved performance, happier thoughts, and longer life!
