Growing up with Obesity as part of my life I knew how important it would be to make sure to make healthy life style Choices. I have dedicated myself to a constant quest to become a leader in both fields. I have been blessed to work with a wide range of individual’s including elite athletes as a strength and conditioning coach to the weekend warrior as well as youth to make sure they start off with habits that will lead to a much healthier life. Fitness and nutrition is something that I love to work on as an individual as well as share with others.

Healthy living is something that can affect every part of your life; it is part of the balance that many people simply choose to put on the back burner or to ignore all together. I believe that all people should take time to give themselves the gift of a healthier life.

“Success is the outcome of thinking, visualizing, planning and TAKING ACTION.” So what are you waiting for???

Megan Polynin

I didn’t pay much attention to my weight & lack of physical fitness until I was in college.  After seeing a photo of myself, I realized I had put on quite a bit of weight & was not happy about it.  My body changed but even more importantly I realized that I needed to make exercise a part of my life permanently.  Working out was never easy for me & it still isn’t but I discovered that I love pushing myself, finding something that I didn’t think I could do & going for it.  Now I get up extra early to hike before work, I have run distances long & short, done muddy obstacle courses, crazy relay races & even a mini triathlon.  I never thought these would be the kinds of things I would do for fun, but I love it!  I’m fortunate to be able to take my passion for fitness and help others attain their goals.

I’m originally form Northfield MN and I‘ve lived in the Valley for the past 12 years.  I’ve been a massage therapist for over 11 years, this has given me a much deeper understanding and passion for how the human body works. I have two wonderful children, Ben who is 5 and Cate who is 3, they are my whole world & I love sharing my passion for fitness with them!
