Marshelle's story

Hi! My name is MJ! I grew up in a small farming community in Missouri. I studied Sports Management through California University of Pennsylvania, I knew fitness/nutrition was the industry for me. I also discovered powerlifting during this time, and I will attribute my strength, both mental and physical, primarily to all my heavy lifting! By the time I graduated college, I made the move from Boston to Denver to open a gym exclusively for women and children. It was a whirlwind when I moved to Denver; the dream I had of opening my own gym seemed so far away, but within two years of moving, I made it happen! At this point, I have competed in five powerlifting meets, taking first place at all but one, and six bikini bodybuilding shows as a natural athlete. However, what I am the most proud of is my successful opening of MJ Fit in the Denver Tech Center! Every day I go into the gym (even if it’s 5am), I am grateful for all the incredible women and kiddos who have trusted us with their health, and for my trainers who work tirelessly to provide the same level of service and dedication to their clients as I do. I also have an adorable puppy, Stella, who is almost always at the gym with me to hold our clients accountable!
