Hi! My name is Marya Hopman. I’m a personal trainer and corrective exercise specialist who’s not that into exercise! I’m interested in living an active life, free from pain and confident to do whatever I want to do.
I retrained as a personal trainer in 2010 because i was looking for a career that would be good for my health, rather than being stuck behind a desk. I’d heard the industry was looking for trainers that a wider range of people could relate to. As an “older” woman who wasn’t a fitness fanatic, and as a person who loves to help people, I fit the bill.
Surprisingly I found my purpose.
It’s taken me a few years to realise that what I now offer is very different. I’ve combined rehabilitation and exercise with consistent and relentless education because this really seems to be lacking. I found people didn’t really understand the exercises given to them by their physical therapist or trainer. With just a little extra time taken on explaining how it should feel, how with very small adjustments they could get a better result, clients have been blown away. People regularly ask me “Why haven’t I been told this before?” and I don’t know the answer. What I teach is common sense and should be common knowledge, so it’s my mission to make it so because I believe it can change the health and fitness of everyone.
