My name is Mia Marcin.
I’ve always been drawn to anything related to fitness. I always wanted to be the fastest runner, the highest jumper, the one that could do the most push-ups or lift the heaviest. I just loved the feeling of adrenaline and satisfaction it gave me and loved that it gave me a place in the world.
I have always been very independent and spent a lot of my time doing things on my own. I fell in love with swimming when I was 9 for these reasons as, although it was a team sport, I could put in 100 percent training, effort and dedication and see the results of it without someone holding me back.
I swam professionally throughout my schooling and spent all my free time in the gym trying to think of what I could do extra to make it to the top. Through this, I became very interested in how the body worked, how to train to make me a better athlete and how I could mimic movement in the water to the gym and vice versa. This is where I first got interested in Personal Training, and a few years later started my first job working the front desk of Augustana Fitness Centre.
As I continued through my swimming career, and eventually took my Personal Training and CSEPT-CPT through NAIT, I knew I wanted more and wanted to be able to help other athletes and individuals reach their goals. I decided to go out on my own and start my own Personal Training business. I knew right away what I would call my business.
When I was 12 years old, I made a very high-level swim team and had to work extremely hard during every practice to keep up. I would go home and jump on the treadmill or go to the gym and do an extra workout to try and doing everything I could to be better. I wanted to be the athlete who wanted it just a little bit more than the next person. I knew that is what it would take to be the best. I started looking at motivational quotes and sayings that I could print off and put in my room and one day I am across the quote “Mind/Matter” and I don’t know why but it was exactly what I needed to see and I wrote it down on a piece of paper and taped it up so I could read it every day.
I decided to take the leap of faith and started Mind/Matter Personal Training in a small space and have loved every minute of growing as a trainer and working with numerous clients and athletes, helping them take the steps to reach their goals. I look forward to my future as a trainer and the future of taking my business to the next level.
