Since moving into Trilogy® Orlando in 2015, Marianne Becton has been teaching weekly fitness classes at The Athletic Club including Cross Train, Body Tone, Spin, and Healthy Movement.
“I’ve been privileged to teach classes that enable me to share my fitness philosophies and knowledge among my peers,” Becton said. “Keeping fit is an ongoing balancing act that is one of the key pillars of a healthy lifestyle. As we age, and things become more challenging, staying active is imperative for a long and healthy life.”
A healthy lifestyle is nothing new to Becton. “I started teaching classes in the evening and weekends when I was about 27,” Becton said. “I continued to do it part-time and in 2007, I became certified as a personal trainer.”
In 2008 she started her business, Fit For You Personal Training, part-time. In January 2009, it became a full-time gig.
“I simply love to teach and the best part is the difference it makes in people’s lives,” Becton said of her business. “Understanding movement and the relationship between activity, nutrition and wellness is the key to a healthy life.”
Since then, Becton’s added a specialty in spin, strength conditioning and barre, as well as becoming certified as a Health Coach.
So, who’s benefiting most from Becton’s Passions? Definitely her fellow Trilogy Members.
“Not long after I started taking [her] classes I had a tight trap, neck, and shoulder issue and after class she got to work on me, which was totally unexpected,” said fellow Member Sherry Welsh. “Fifteen minutes later I felt so much relief! I was just amazed that someone I was just getting to know would take that much of a personal interest in my well-being.”
“When I started I couldn’t get up from the floor without help,” said another frequent participant. “Her instruction, guidance and encouragement resulted in significant strengthening of my core as well as improvement in my balance, flexibility and overall strength. I love going to that class!”
