Hey everyone and welcome to my blog! My name is Marilena and I am a 32-year-old office manager by day/fitness enthusiast by night. I have thought about starting a blog for some time now so here it goes! I went to The Ohio State University and majored in Fashion Merchandising. After 8 years in the retail world I made the transition to a more traditional schedule and position and was ecstatic to have two days off, in a row, EVERY week!! Who knew the weekends were so wonderful! Through out my career changes, I had a constant, my gym membership. I have always been active, from ballet when I was itty bitty through my college days, to step classes, weight training and kickboxing. This love of a good sweat sesh finally motivated me to pursue my group fitness instructor certification. After an 8 week-long course through The Lifetime Academy, I sat for my ACE exam and passed! I am officially certified to teach group fitness classes. Next mission: find a job! With this experience and all the experiences I have accumulated through the years, my passion and desire to motivate others has grown.
With each post about different workout formats, gyms and work out wear I hope to inspire and motivate through the knowledge I’ve picked up. Even though I am not in the retail or fashion worlds as an employee I am right there in it as a consumer! My love for fashion and leopard as a neutral is still kicking and putting together my wear to work outfits each night hasn’t stopped! Keep posted for outfits you can wear to work, to date night and to just run around in. I try to incorporate those familiar spots each day and can’t wait to share them with you!!
