If you’re a dancer, athlete, or advanced mover who’s been stuck in a hopeless cycle of stopping & starting training and never meeting your movement goals….

You're in the right place if you need...



You want to learn how to define and reach your training goals with self-compassion and sustainability while avoiding burnout.



You understand rest is important, but it just feels impossible to actually do.



You're ready to set realistic and attainable training goals without giving up on it halfway through.



You keep comparing yourself to others or a past version of yourself and you're ready to break that cycle.

Oh Hey!
I'm Marissa

I am a dancer, athlete, and advanced mover who has truly ran the gamut of overtraining, under-recovering, and burning herself out.

Through my years of coaching experience & education (which you can read about under “qualifications” below), and my own personal journey, I have found that those of us who love moving and training also struggle to maintain balance and see the value in training sustainably. You deserve better than to have to figure it out by yourself.

I created FTLOM to help others train in a sustainable way that actually feels good because… well, we don’t gate-keep around here.

What's Included...

Group Coaching Calls & Workshops

Every week we will meet for a live call-- either a workshop or open coaching call. Each week will have its own topic, including- a deep dive into the "why" behind our goals, how to deal with fatigue & overtraining, how to rest without guilt, and how to set a realistic 6 month training goal. You will have an opportunity to get individualized coaching.

Movement Menu

Around here, we are all about picking movement that is in alignment with your needs, goals, & lifestyle. That's why you will have a movement menu of options via the Trainerize platform for your training, including strength training (home and gym options), mobility, active recovery, and more.

FTLOM Community

It has been my literal DREAM to create a space for like-minded people to share, and THIS IS IT. Between group calls and access to the Trainerize group chat, you will have the support of others (& yours truly) to share wins, ask questions, exchange ideas, and feel HEARD and SEEN.

Weekly Modules & Resources

Along with the group coaching calls, you will receive additional resources and weekly prompts to support calls and reflect on your own growth.

Movement Expert Interviews

We will be BLESSED with exclusive interviews with movement experts who will share their personal journeys and drop major knowledge truths on what moving for joy and training sustainably can look like.

1:1 Support

While this is not individualized programming or coaching, you will get access to 1:1 support in our group coaching calls and via messaging with me.


“If you are struggling with burnout, then you can't afford NOT to sign up for FTLOM. Marissa expertly guides you through not only how to move, but how not to move. You'll leave feeling empowered over your relationship with movement, and I can't say enough good things about the program.”
-Katie Askegaard, she/her
“FTLOM was a breath of fresh air. After growing up in all-or-nothing spaces that valued intensity, followed by a long hiatus due to chronic illness, Marissa's program gave me permission to move on my own terms. The materials were accessible, shame-free, and engaging. Thank you for helping me fall back in love with movement.”
-Kara Wernick, all pronouns
“The FTLOM experience was such an inspiring, and much needed, program. I never felt pressured to keep with the pace of the group and felt supported to move through the program in a way that worked best for my schedule! If you're a lifelong mover learning to grow in a healthy, sustainable way, Marissa is a gem that you absolutely need in your life!”
-Aly Giampolo
