The yoga and barre teachers are so wonderful and experts in the field.
Lovely, helpful staff; judgment free zone!
It's a great, community-centric, body-positive place.
If there were 10 stars, mActivity would get them!
The teachers are great at teaching a variety of classes that include cardio, barre, stretching and yoga.
Beautiful setting, variety of equipment, expertise of professional staff of trainers. Everyone has a place here, athletes, seniors, etc.
Great selection of group classes (barre, HIIT, etc), good vibe at the gym overall!
mActivity creates such a positive environment that I absolutely look forward to working out, and I go multiple times a week now.
There are so many things I love about mActivity; first and foremost, it's the first gym I've ever attended consistently!
There is a happy feeling that I get when coming into mActivity... I couldn't ask for more in a gym or community of this sort!!
Marilys's motto was always "When she was younger, exercise to her was about physically looking fit. As she evolved more in to fitness, it became more than just physical, it's about being emotionally in tune with your mental state of mind".
Marilys moved with her daughter to Connecticut in 2017 from San Juan, PR. Coming from a long career in the arts from starting in a gallery in Los Angeles, CA from having her own business in PR for over 20 years she decided to join the family business alongside with her cousin Burch, the co-founder of mActivity Fitness in New Haven.
She has always been in to fitness, dabbling in weight training, paddle boarding and rollerblading. Her love for the arts and fitness was a perfect combination to open a franchise since mActivity also has an art gallery and promotes the importance of being part of the community.
Marilys received a degree in Business Administrative with a concentration in Marketing from The Phoenix University.
