Marissa Herring, owner of Garage Mama Fitness in Winter Garden and a Tri-Fitness Challenge champion, is in the August edition of Women’s Fitness magazine (United Kingdom and Ireland) with other leading fitness professionals as part of a feature called “World Fitness Elite.”
In the feature, Herring and other leading experts were asked to give their top tips to look and feel great.
Herring began her training as a competitive gymnast at an early age. She transitioned into high school cheerleading at Our Lady of Lourdes Academy and became an NCA All-American cheerleader and national partner stunt champion.
In 1992, she continued her collegiate cheerleading at Florida State University, where she was a member of the varsity squad that traveled, cheered and competed at national levels. In 1994, she joined Florida International University varsity cheerleading, which was ranked fifth among the national university cheerleading squads and partner stunt champions.
After giving birth to her second child, Herring trained and competed at The Women’s Tri-Fitness World Challenge. Herring placed first in the Fitness routine and finished in the top 10 in all the other events. She is an IFPA-certified personal trainer and women’s fitness specialist and has developed healthy nutritious recipes to help her clients and their children succeed on their fitness journey.
In 2009, Herring opened Garage Mama Fitness in her Miami garage, where she trained family and friends. Two years later, she and her husband, Kim Herring, an NFL Super Bowl champ, opened Garage Mama Fitness & Trinity Sports Performance Gym in a 6,700-square-foot state-of-the-art fitness facility.
