In her three decades in the fitness industry, Mare Petras, CEO (Chief Energy Officer) of Fitness Simply has been through all the fads and all the extremes, discovering that a simple, moderate approach to fitness is what feels best and works. Her fitness background, life coach training, and messaging skills offer audiences a unique “one size does not fit all” approach to wellness. 

Recognized by the New York Times as the anytime, anywhere fitness expert, Mare’s playful mind, body, and spirit fit-losphy encourages people to “enjoy their bodies, enjoy their lives, every minute every day.” She exposes the motivational roadblocks to good health and provides audiences fun, easy, and simple solutions to reduce stress, improve attitude, and “refine their exteriors.” 

During her years as one of Washington D.C.’s premiere personal trainers, Mare:

  • Ran with (well, behind) President Clinton for the American Heart Association’s National Capitol Affiliate.
  • Worked out Arnold Schwarzenegger during the “Great American Workout” held on the Whitehouse lawn.
  • Was featured in Shape magazine as a provider of fitness programs for busy women. 

 

Mare is the author of three fun Fitness Simply books: Tone Up With Wine and Other Fun Fit Tips, The Seven Habits of Highly Successful Swimsuit Shoppers, and Buff Boomers and Beyond. She writes for local and national health magazines/websites and sits on various wellness advisory boards. She is a DVD star and fitness spokesperson, frequently quoted on health websites and in wellness publications such as Reader’s Digest and Women’s World. Moreover, Mare is a trainer of trainers, providing wellness coaching workshops for fitness professionals and is an active member of the National Speakers Association. After years of working in the physical fitness industry, Mare gave her brain a workout and in 2010 completed an undergraduate degree (Summa Sum Laude) in English/Communications.  

A native Texan (via Washington, D.C.), Mare loves living (and exercising) in Florida with her family.
