Meet Marie Sweet of F45 Training Dana Point

Today we’d like to introduce you to Marie Sweet.  

Hi Marie, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start, maybe you can share some of your backstories with our readers.
I began my fitness journey at a very young age, really without even knowing it! I played all the sports growing up, and that is where I found my passion for basketball! I played all the way through college, and in my final year, I ended up tearing my ACL. I had NO clue what I wanted to do after college, and my plan was to go play Women’s Basketball overseas to buy myself some more time to figure life out! Well, after my injury, I learned about a Sport Management Master’s Program in San Fransisco. I was never a strong academic student, so the thought of a Master’s Degree was very daunting to me; however, sport was right up my alley! 23 months later, I received my Master’s from the University of San Francisco, and that decision was by far one of the best decisions I have made to date! 

In this time, I had made the decision to move back to Southern California and pursue my degree there. I started working out at a gym called F45 Training right by my house, which very quickly became my next vertical move in life! I decided about 8 months after training there and coaching people every day that I wanted to be a part of this! I know own a F45 Training in Dana Point, CA, and absolutely LOVE going to “work” each day! 

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back, would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It definitely has not been a smooth road! 8 months into opening the studio, COVID made us shut our doors for a few months, however, we are back and better than before! Being a young business owner and almost naive to what was really happening at the time might have been the biggest blessing. 

Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
F45 Training is the world’s fastest-growing fitness franchise! F45 stands for Functional training, and each class is 45 minutes. We offer personal training in a group setting, and have both cardio and resistance days! What I am most proud of, is that during the pandemic, F45 came up with different ways to continue to train; whether that be at home or in studio. We offer the best workouts, as well as the best communities! 

What sort of changes are you expecting over the next 5-10 years?
The Fitness industry is always evolving! Which new research coming out constantly, there will always be different trends and more ways of creating a healthy lifestyle!
