Member Feature: Marian Kay Strickland

Definition Fit is proud to introduce you to our featured member, Marian Kay Strickland! Marian works harder than anyone we know! She trains 5 days a week with our amazing trainer David Bens, and has been training with him for the past 16 years. He always challenges her with new moves, incorporating the basics as well as the greatest fitness trends. He always makes workouts fun and exciting, with plenty of time to stretch and explain proper form and technique.

Their partnership began years ago when Marian was with a different trainer, but noticed how great all David’s clients looked! David noticed some techniques that needed adjusting, the two got to talking, and after the switch their training sessions went from 3 to 5 days per week! Starting with a lot of nutrition talk and meal planning, she dropped 3 dress sizes and her body fat down to 10%.

Now Marian has become a role model for others here at Definition Fit. Her great mental attitude, energy and stamina are attributed to her wonderful trainer, David. Her confidence and strength are well-earned and there’s nothing she can’t wear! Marian always looks good as she travels to and from Definition Fit. She is the owner of M.K. Designs inside the Golden Image Jewelry Store on Palm Avenue in downtown Sarasota, where she works with her sister specializing in custom jewelry.

They strive to keep the fun in jewelry while removing the fear factor. With M.K. Designs, they offer customers the safety of knowing they are working with experts. They hold the highest standards in both gem selection and the craftsmanship involved in one-of-a-kind designs. As creative artists, they design with passion and attention to detail. Go see Marian today and get yourself something beautiful while talking with a gym and nutrition pro! We always love seeing you here at Definition Fit, Marian!
