Hi there,
I am Marie.

About me

“If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you.”

Fitness to me is so much more than a sweat session in the gym. More than anything it is my passion, my “go-to-feel-good”, which not only allows me to cope with whatever life throws with me but also let me thrive from it.

Regardless of any sort of aesthetic goal, fitness to me also means discovering, improving but mostly appreciating our bodies’ physical and mental capabilities. Our bodies are the one thing that we live in with every second of our lives. They are our constant home, our own little power house, and are therefore so worthy of protection and cherishment. 


Ever since I can remember exercising has been a part of my life: After many successful years in competitive gymnastics and tennis, I have found my passion in strength training just a couple of years ago. It helped me push through difficult times. Lifting heavy lifted me up and allowed me to develop not only physical but most importantly mental strength.  

For that reason, exercising has become such an important and indispensable role in my life, which I was gladly able to turn into part of my career: I became a Certified Personal Trainer in the summer of 2015 and right after moved to New York, where I provided 1:1 fitness coaching as well as nutrition counseling. Next to expanding my knowledge in powerlifting and functional training, I was further able to make my first experiences in Crossfit. 

I truly believe that when we commit to our health, we also take control of every other aspect of our lives. It is a challenging, yet such a rewarding and truly beautiful experience, that I want to share within my work as a Personal Trainer and in doing so help others on their way towards a healthier lifestyle.  

Life is so full of adventure – so, let me infect you with my passion and enthusiasm around both nutrition and fitness, my urge to empower people to make positive changes in their life and let’s get you started on this new and exciting expedition.  


Train as part of a group and complete a guided full body workout consisting of functional bodyweight movements. Whether you are a beginner or an intermediate, every fitness level is welcome as all movements can be adjusted to meet your individual abilities. 


The training can either be done in-person at a location of your choice or online via video call.

Personal Training


Train with me on a 1:1 base to receive direct feedback on your performance, useful hints to ensure the proper execution of exercises and in doing so preventing injuries. The training can either be done in-person at one of Elbgym Hamburg’s locations, at home, outdoors or online via video call. 

Online coaching


In an initial assessment call we get to know each other, define your goals as well as scope and intensity of the coaching program needed to reach that goal. We discuss your health and injury history, physical capabilities and training options available to you.


Based on the information provided above, you receive your personalized training program (and or nutrition plan) to progress you properly towards your goal.


In a weekly check-in call we review the past week, discuss your current status and, if necessary, make updates to your program to ensure you are progressing properly.
