Owner and Operator of Bliss Pilates and Hayden Fitness Online
“Fitness should be fun and enjoyable, not something you despise!”
Marie’s journey through fitness started with her love for athletics as a youth. After her sports activities began to slow down the weight gain began… assisted by a few too many scoops of ice cream and orders of fries with gravy.
After always being fit, Marie took a keen interest in weight training to help shed those unwanted pounds. Marie continued to be passionate about fitness and utilized her skills to assist others along the way. She took an interest in naturopathic healing in part to help with her continued digestion issues such as bloating, pain, exhaustion, irritability and gas, which helped to reach a final diagnosis of multiple food intolerances/allergies. After years of misdiagnosis, Marie’s digestions issues were on the mend and now her path to wellness really progressed. SHe now offers food sensitivity testing.
Eliminating her food intolerances helped to significantly boost her energy levels and get her back on track. Two pregnancies less than 16 months apart put a bump in the road, and unlike most fitness enthusiasts Marie was unable to exercise due to extreme low back pain and other complications. Frustrated by the common myths that she would lose weight “after delivering,” “while breastfeeding,” “after the first year,” Marie took control of the situation with multiple conferences and workshops that allowed her to reshape her body and then eagerly began to help others around her facing similar challenges.
During her postpartum journey she did rehab with Concept Physio and Pilates Connection. This started an amazing blend of Pilates Reformers and Physiotherapy. Today she not only brings her wealth of knowledge in strength training but also in her love of Pilates Reformers that were introduced to the studio in 2017. Wherever you are in your Journey Marie brings you over 25 years of health and wellness.
Marie has also experienced Hormonal Imbalance and Hypothyroidism which has also led her to create the ReNEWU Meal Plan. She works closely with Naturopathic Dr Kristen Read. Your program includes Naturopathic Visits and Thyroid, Cortisol and Hormonal Testing. Message her for details and take control of your body!!
Marie looks forward to assisting others find a healthier lifestyle. Let Marie open your eyes to a healthy approach to wellness.
