About The Pain-Free Fitness Creator
Mariah Heller is a fitness industry executive, gym co-founder, author, speaker, and the creator of Pain-Free Fitness.
Mariah started Pain-Free Fitness after spending eight years in the fitness industry and realizing that there were no welcoming solutions for clients with chronic pain, fitness newbies - or really for anyone who didn't "fit in" in the classic gym setting.
Mariah was diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome at the age of 28, after dealing with debilitating symptoms for the majority of her life. Her mission is to create a health and fitness environment that welcomes and helps people from all walks of life.
Mariah is an online fitness trainer who specializes in clients with chronic pain, and in the general population who are new to fitness and who find themselves unsure where to start. Her goal as a coach is to help make her clients self-sufficient, while also giving them the step-by-step tools they need to reach their goals.
Mariah is also a manual therapist, the author of two eBooks, and the creator of Fitness Fundamentals Flash Cards - a line of flashcards aimed to help make workouts more attainable and safe for all levels.
She has been featured on several podcasts, and lectures annually at the UC Davis Entrepreneurship academy.
