Marty Butler: Personal Trainer
For the last 10 years I was climbing the corporate ladder for a company that consistently ranks as one of the Best Companies to work for. However, I realized that there was something missing in my life; I had a passion for fitness and knew that I wanted to help others. This led me to personal training and I went on to become certified by the American Council of Exercise (ACE) as a personal trainer. I feel like this is my true calling and I can now use my passion for health and wellness to help others. In the future I hope to develop affordable fitness programs that help our youth find their health, happiness and confidence as they pursue their dreams as well.
