Owner & General Manager Marina Martinez runs backend ops and coaches Fitness Boxing & Kickboxing. Coach Marina has been in the fitness industry for 14 yrs in sales, retention & business management positions and held several personal training certifications. She's been coaching Fitness Boxing & Kicknoxing for 8 months and has fallen in love with it.
Although she's always played sports, her fitness journey truly began after sustaining an injury in the Marine Corps. As a way to rehab and fight through PTSD, anxiety & depression, she began a well-rounded fitness routine of weightlifting, cardio & nutrition. She trained for a figure competition, completed several 5ks, has done Fitness Boxing/Kickboxing workouts for 8 yrs, boxing training for 4 yrs, indoor rowing for 2 yrs & completed all phases of 75 Hard, which was surprisingly life-changing. Coach Marina's fitness journey helped her develop a strong mindset & overcome mental health struggles. Building her health, having an avenue for stress relief, and finding the will to fight through physical struggles have been extremely important over the past year & a half of fighting medical issues. The biggest thing she's learned is how versatile fitness is & how different it looks at various phases of life.
Just as with being a leader in the business world, coaching is about developing people, which is what Marina loves! Witnessing members fight their own battles, watching their confidence grow as they learn, seeing them feel pride in their progress, and overall releasing their inner BADASS is the best part for her. She loves that at Charge Fitness, there are no strangers! More than just awesome trainers & programming, you have a team of motivators & accountabilty partners in fellow members. If you're new to fitness, restarting your fitness journey or reinventing yourself, Marina recommends you simply DECIDE & MOVE. Make the decision to make fitness important. Make it non-negotiable. Then take action & start. Everything else you need is at Charge Fitness!
Coach Marina also owns a Business Consulting & Virtual Assistance Agency and an Income Tax Mobile Branch. Outside of work, she likes to watch MMA, boxing, football, soccer and any super twisted psychological thriller. She plays Fantasy Football (well), plays in a pool league (not well) and loves painting, creative writing & dropping F bombs.
