Despite leading an active lifestyle, Marina was virtually allergic to cardio until she discovered her love for HIIT training. She began weight training six years ago and when she saw the difference it made to her mental and physical health (not to mention feeling like a total badass) she was hooked.

Working for a craft beer distributor, she leads a double life juggling her love for the F&B and fitness industry and found her happy place somewhere between beers and barbells.

When she’s not working or working out, she enjoys spending her downtime in the kitchen or playing land-seal, lounging out in the sun.
