Mariah Heller is an ACSM Certified Personal Trainer, CrossFit Level 1 coach, TRX instructor, second-degree black belt, and professional singer with a Bachelors degree in dance from the University of California, Davis. Mariah has overcome many obstacles in her fitness journey including severe injuries and struggles with eating disorders, and these obstacles have helped to shape the type of trainer and coach Mariah has become.
Having recently graduated college, Mariah is working on building a personal and professional brand that helps to integrate fitness and aspects of the performing arts industry. She aims to provide a different perspective on moderation and patience in a world of extreme measures and instant gratification.
Mariah graduated high school at the age of sixteen and received her Associates degree at the age of seventeen. Around that same time she moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in the music industry. Unfortunately, "success" in the industry came at the expense of Mariah's health, and she promptly made a lateral move into the fitness industry in an attempt to educate herself on eating disorders and injury recovery.
Now, as a dancer, personal trainer, and CrossFit coach, as well as being a former competitive powerlifter, Mariah has adopted a particular method that promotes moderation and long-term health and well-being.
Mariah currently works as a personal trainer and group class instructor at Performance 22 in Davis, California, as an online personal trainer at Fit Orbit, and is a professional singer and dancer. More information is available at Riah Music.
