Work with Me


Hey there!

Thanks for stopping by!
I have a feeling I know why you’re here.

You’re dreaming about what life would be like if you had a clear plan to achieve your fitness and health goals.

You are:

  • Sweating to death in the gym not getting the results you want.

  • On page 6 of “I hate my body. What do I do?” on google.

  • Determined to make a change but have no clue where to start or what direction you actually need to go in because there is too much conflicting information to wade through.

How do I know this? Because that used to be me too.

My name is Marisa.
Otherwise known as MissFitAndNerdy.

And for most of my life, I hated exercise. 

I hated my body. 

I hated salads, and the gym, and PE teachers. 

I didn’t know how to best take care of my body. And it made me miserable. 


I was miserable because:

  • I was afraid of gaining fat.

  • I thought I needed to eat 1200 calories a day to lose weight.

  • No matter what I did, my body stayed the same.

  • I made excuses and blamed it on genetics, too much homework, & unhealthy dining hall food.

and worst of all, I thought that to be healthy and maintain my weight I had to feel like I was starving all the time.

Sound familiar to you?


  • Attempt extreme diet after extreme diet and get stuck in a yo-yo cycle.

  • Return a huge pile of clothes to the dressing room attendant because you hated the way you looked in everything. And it wasn’t the clothes’ fault.

  • Feel so self conscious about going to the gym that you don’t want to go at all.

  • Be desperate, and I mean really desperate, to make a change that will work for once.

Trust me…



One winter while procrastinating studying for finals, I was sitting in my tiny dorm room binge watching YouTube videos. 

And I discovered a whole new world:

  • Where I didn’t have to starve myself to maintain my weight.

  • Where food was fuel, not the enemy.

  • Where exercise could be about more than trying to work off my Freshman 15.

  • Where I could appreciate what my body *could* do rather than hate it for what it looked like.


Since ditching diet culture and the elliptical, I’ve…

  • Found a mode of exercise that excites me, not only because it has given me the body I want but also because it makes me feel good.

  • Been able to eat 1000 (yes literally one thousand) more calories a day than I was trying to eat before and I weigh less and am leaner than I was a few years ago.

  • Learned to LOVE my body and appreciate its strength and power.

  • Fallen in love with exercise and treating my body right to optimize my health and wellness. It is no longer torture to go to the gym or eat a salad. It is what I want which makes it easy. 


Now, it is my personal mission to help other people who have been beaten down by diet culture overcome fear and uncertainty so that they can find their inner superheroes.

I want to help YOU develop a healthy, sustainable lifestyle so that you can feel and look great now and still kick ass when you’re in your 80’s.

 It’s time to make a change and:

  • Build the body of your dreams.

  • Tap into your body and mind’s fullest potential.

  • Foster a healthy relationship with food, your body, and exercise.

  • Discover a mode of exercise that truly excites you and that you actually want to wake up for.

  • STOP letting your fitness and your life be dictate by what the media tells you that you need to do and instead find what works for YOUR body.

But let’s slow down. I know you’re also:

  • Scared AF about trying the 100th new plan when nothing has worked in the past.

  • Unsure if your goals are actually attainable.

  • Nervous because you don’t know what it might take to get there.

  • Worried you don’t have what it takes to accomplish your goals.

  • Terrified that people will judge you for taking control of your life.

  • Fearful that everyone will make fun of you if you put in all your effort… and fail.



I’m here to not only help you understand what you need to do to achieve your goals, but also to help you find your passion for health and fitness. Together, we will put you on a path to help you feel and look great now and still kick ass when you’re in your 80’s.



I empower you to be in the driver’s seat for your health and fitness journey and to dig deep within to understand what it is you truly want to accomplish. You’ll end each call knowing you have a game plan that you can apply in order to succeed. You’ll also master your mindset, become the #fitspo you aspire to be, and see life completely differently after working with me.


I’m not just another coach who is going to cheer from the sidelines and tell you “one more rep!” “you’ve got this!” or “you better eat your kale… or else!” As an ACE certified Personal Trainer and Fitness Nutrition Specialist, I have not only received an accredited education in fitness and nutrition, but I have also done thousands of hours of my own research to educate myself further. The information I will give you will be backed by science, not conjecture, overzealous dogma, or bro science.


Fitness and health should not be intimidating, nor boring. I believe in having a good time. And trust me, when we work together we will have just that. Each time we chat it’ll be just like two friends hanging out sharing a squat rack or laughing our butts off over adaptogenic lattes, chatting away about how you’ll crush your goals and create the dream healthy lifestyle that you desire and deserve.


Imagine where you could be in exactly 12 months from today.

Often times we overestimate what we can achieve in a month, but underestimate how much can change in a year. If you want to finally create massive change in your life, now is your chance.

So if you KNOW you are on the edge of change and are ready to take the leap, then buckle up! Because you have the opportunity to invest in the following three options to change your life:
