She specialises in post-surgery recovery, lower back pain, weight loss and medical referrals. Her clients are busy people, so her workouts are goal-oriented to include functional fitness as well as fun.

Marie Therese Schmidt at Atomix

The Trainer

Working out is crucial for our minds and general well-being. Marie aims to have people leave her workouts beaming with a smile and not only knowing, but actually experiencing the incredible things their bodies are capable of.

The Workouts

Marie wants people to enjoy their workout, from the moment they show up all the way through to victoriously collapsing on the floor and feeling an endorphin rush that will keep them in a good mood for the rest of the day.

Why We Love Marie Therese

Let us count the ways: Her passion for and belief in fitness being key to mental and physical wellbeing. Her positive, fun personality shines through, even via Zoom. And her inclusive nature and fair spirit (she offered donation-based classes through the COVID-19 pandemic so those affected could still work out).
