Marisa is a graduate in Biology from Antioch College, mom of two, and personal trainer based out of Southern California. She is a former gymnast with over 20 years combined athletic experience in physique, calisthenics and powerlifting.
Marisa is currently the American record holder in Bench, deadlift as well as total in the 114lb class in the USAPL, but she is probably better known as the “pull-up dancing girl” from the Ellen DeGeneres Show.
She hopes to not only improve as lifter but to inspire all moms and moms to be that kids are not a physique death sentence; that you can stay relevant and competitive even after children.
