Meet Marisa Ortega. Marisa came to us in July 2017 when we hosted a 6 week challenge. Marisa had no prior experience, in fact, she didn’t exercise at all. She was quiet, but continued to show up 4-5 x a week. When the 6 weeks were over, Marisa had lost around 20lbs and many inches from her body. Needless to say, she won the challenge and has been with us ever since! She’s a great addition to our team.
