Marisa is one of the Founders of GritCycle and has been passionate about group fitness since teaching Step and high-impact aerobics back in the 1980s. She loves choreographing her classes to fun, motivating, upbeat songs leaving her riders feeling stronger and happier than when they walked in.
Her approach to classes is that if you’re having fun, you won’t realize how hard you are working. She loves to play familiar music that people can sing along with and she frequently plays a Country song or two.
Marisa is the mother of two teenagers and two rescue dogs and works with her extended family to help those who suffer from cancer. She believes that staying healthy and keeping fit can actually prevent cancer and she is grateful to have a role promoting health and wellness in this community.
