Mariu Hinds -
Certified Fitness Trainer / Corrective Exercise Specialist
Always a recreational exerciser, in 1998 I became very involved in fitness not knowing that this new passion would mean a complete turn to my professional life. My fitness career started in 2003 in California as a group fitness instructor with 24 Hour Fitness. After moving to Wake Forest I built a career at the Kerr family YMCA from 2006 to 2011 holding several positions during those years. I hold several certifications - Certified Personal Fitness Trainer, Certified Corrective Exercise Specialist, TRX suspension training, and Schwinn indoor cycle. I am passionate about this career and hold the utmost commitment to professional growth expanding my practical and theoretical foundations through continuing education and other forms of training. I will evaluate your fitness level and goals to customize exercise programs to fit your style, personality and motivation level. My passion for health and fitness translates into being inspirational and instrumental in your journey to discover a healthier way of living and the joy of knowing that you are doing your best to take care of the one body God has given you.
Coming from a group exercise fitness background of 19 years I have the ability to put together training programs for one-on-one setting to group setting that incorporate, mobility, functional, strength, flexibility, interval, and balance training in a way that provides proper form and execution, ample modifications (in group setting), challenging and motivating routines and a positive experience for the individual.
A healthy living is a journey, not a destination and that journey requires discipline and dedication. Yet the benefits are endless. Let me help you get started!
