Marisa Wayne has been involved in the group fitness industry since the late 1980s. She studied Exercise Science in college and has lead numerous group fitness classes including Step and High-Impact Aerobics, Circuit Training, Yoga, and Indoor Cycling.
In addition to her love of fitness, Marisa is heavily involved with many local, charitable causes. Through GRIT, she creates opportunities to give back to those causes in a fun, yet constructive way. Tragically, Marisa lost her father (screen legend, John Wayne) to cancer at the age of thirteen. It has been a lifelong goal of hers to find a cure for cancer, and she believes that a healthy lifestyle is one of the essential keys to that cure.
Marisa has the true GRIT to inspire all that come in contact with her.
