Live Life. Have Fun. Be Fit.
And Don’t Forget To Stretch.
I’ve already had 3 compliments this morning about how good I’m looking – figure (butt!), refreshed/healthy – and that NEVER happens around here (at work)… It’s all thanks to my great trainer!!! Thank you so much… I know I’m increasing muscle weight and losing fat ’cause I can feel it. I’m ecstatic!!!
I feel fortunate to have a trainer with enthusiasm and such a sunny disposition. She understands my fitness goals and she utilizes a wide array of skills to help me achieve them. My fitness plan is comprehensive yet balanced; she sets just the right pace for me. Our hour workout just flies by!
I can’t speak highly enough about Mary Beth’s uncanny ability to motivate people to achieve their fitness goals – and then surpass them… Mary Beth was a true partner and coach. She listened to what I wanted and where I was, and then she guided me further than what I thought I could achieve… by firmly and amiably guiding me.
Mary Beth… has been an amazing trainer! (She) always has a positive attitude, is there to help me 100%, and is extremely knowledgeable… I would highly recommend her to anyone who is seeking a trainer who is passionate about your results, and gets you there with a smile and a can-do attitude. Thank you so much, Mary Beth!
You’re the best, Mary Beth. I so love your classes. I always end up feeling so good and supported. Your love comes through! You’ve helped me a lot!
You know that tingly feeling you get when you’re prepping to leave for a really cool trip? The anticipation builds... and builds... and builds some more......read more
Hey hey, peeps! Yeah, I know - long time no blog. I’m trying to be as forgiving to myself for not posting in a while as I am with my personal training clients and Gixo teammates who may fall off the workout wagon, but I’m still a “work in progress” in that regard. 😏...read more
Hey peeps! Just a quick update that I’m no longer just pontificating to read my own words - you’re now able to leave comments on my posts! I truly value your input and I want this to be a two-way street for sure. So welcome aboard!...read more
A couple of posts back I filled you in on my December from hell - during which I got sick, lost my voice, was ordered to two weeks' vocal rest to bring it back, and was left pretty much unable to work for most of the month. Not a happy time for me - and as I'm prone...read more
Okay, have you made a New Year's resolution? Or two or three? Or a whole list? Me too. Here are some things that I plan to work on in 2018 (some items may or may not be... ahem, repeaters from previous years): Cut back on procrastination. (A habit that's partly why...read more
Yeah, I know - it's been a few months since I've checked in on here. Thanks for your patience - let's just say I've been dealing with some... stuff. We left off with my diagnosis of a Baker's cyst, one that was making my left knee hurt. It was a bit more complicated...read more
Ah, the joys of getting older - when it practically becomes a full-time job to manage your body and keep it healthy. Or at least that's what *I'm* dealing with - have you ever heard of a Baker's cyst? It goes a little something like this... The backstory: a year ago,...read more
My personal training clients, both at UCSF Millberry Fitness Center and at fitLOCALfit in San Francisco, are all wonderful people. I'd never pick a favorite - that would be like a parent trying to choose their favorite child. I love them all! But occasionally one of...read more
I got into the fitness industry largely because I want to make a positive difference in people's lives - helping them live well, have fun, and be fit. (Hey, that's the philosophy behind this blog!) Now I'm extremely proud to be working as an online fitness coach for a...read more
I'm a summer-loving girl! As a kid I couldn't get enough of the heat and sunshine, constantly running around barefoot in shorts and a halter top in our grassy backyard in central Pennsylvania. The highest temp I remember from the 20+ years that I lived there was...read more
Hi! Welcome to liveFUNfit!
I’m Mary Beth. I didn’t used to be all about being all healthy and stuff. I have the family medical history from hell: heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, breast cancer – and that’s just my mom! She never really took care of herself, and after watching her deteriorate and suffer and pass away far too young, I was motivated to take control of my life: eating better, moving more, enjoying every day.
