Celebrating Women's History Month: Spotlight on Thrive Leader/Coach Alyssa Marrero

As we celebrate Women's History Month at Echelon Health and Fitness, we're taking a moment to shine a spotlight on the incredible women who make our community vibrant, strong, and inspiring. Today, we're thrilled to feature Alyssa Marrero, a dedicated Thrive Coach and our Offensive Leader, whose journey and contributions exemplify the spirit of empowerment and resilience that we cherish here at Echelon.

Meet Alyssa Marrero: Thrive Coach & Offensive Leader

Alyssa Marrero brings a unique blend of passion, leadership, and dedication to her roles at Echelon Health and Fitness. As a Thrive Coach and Offensive Leader, Alyssa's primary responsibility is to foster a welcoming, safe, and inclusive environment where members of all levels can find success and growth on their fitness journey.

From Elementary School Teacher to Fitness Coach

Alyssa's journey to Echelon began when she moved to South Jersey and was on the hunt for a gym that offered Les Mills classes. After interviewing with the group fitness manager, Leah, Alyssa was hooked. What started as a part-time role as a group fitness instructor in 2019 quickly evolved into a full-time coaching position, and most recently, into her current role as an Offensive Leader (Thrive Manager).

Embracing Growth and Community

Since joining Echelon, Alyssa has experienced significant personal and professional growth, fueled by the gym's emphasis on family, community, and development. The supportive and like-minded atmosphere at Echelon has been a key factor in her journey, making it an "addicting" environment to be a part of.

Championing MemberPERX and Local Businesses

Alyssa highlights MemberPERX as one of the best aspects of Echelon, appreciating the opportunity to support local businesses while enjoying discounts. This program not only benefits members and coaches but also strengthens the community ties that Echelon values so deeply.

A Testament to Girl Power

Reflecting on the role of women at Echelon and in the fitness industry, Alyssa celebrates the strength and resilience of the many women who lead, inspire, and thrive within the Echelon community. From supporting pregnant members through their fitness journey to empowering all women to believe in their strength, Alyssa's approach is a testament to the empowering environment Echelon fosters.

Looking Forward

Looking to the future, Alyssa is excited about the potential for Echelon to grow and impact more lives. She believes in the priceless value of the community Echelon has built and looks forward to seeing this community expand and thrive in new locations.

A Message to Women Everywhere

To women starting their fitness journey, Alyssa offers a powerful message: "You belong! You deserve happiness and peace within yourself. Change starts with a choice." And to the women of Echelon, she reminds them of their strength, resilience, and the victories they've already achieved, simply by showing up for themselves.

As we celebrate Women's History Month, Alyssa Marrero's story is a reminder of the powerful impact that supportive, empowering communities like Echelon can have on individuals and the collective strength of women. Her journey, leadership, and message are an inspiration to us all, and we're proud to have her as a part of the Echelon family.
