Lindsay may be just life you. For much of her adult life, her workout regimen consisted of a few trips to random bootcamps that left her discouraged about how out of shape she felt and lacking the motivation to go back. She never envisioned herself being a “physically fit” person, but began her personal journey training with Marlo and Brenda in the summer of 2017, and now leads teaching group classes, helping clients understand that getting in shape doesn’t have to be so scary and unobtainable.
