About Us:

StudioFive Training was built around the four core values: flexible, innovative, vibrant and empowering. Having a virtual platform creates limitless opportunities to reach your goals from anywhere in the world. We use a flexible approach to fitness, nutrition and behavior change because we believe every clients’ journey should be as unique as they are. Your coach will introduce creative and innovative methods/solutions to overcome potential barriers. Perhaps most importantly, we will craft a vibrant and empowering environment to keep you excited and motivated throughout your entire coaching experience.

About Mara:

Mara Ruttger is a Certified Personal Trainer and Fitness Nutrition Specialist with the National Academy of Sports Medicine.  She graduated from Chaska High School in 2007 and Minnesota State University-Moorhead in 2011 with a Bachelor's Degree in Exercise Science and minors in Strength & Conditioning and Health & Medical Sciences.  Mara also holds a Master’s in Public Health from the University of New England. Her experience lies in one-on-one and small group training, boot camps, heart-rate based training, circuit training, and virtual coaching. She specializes in motivational interviewing, behavior modification, strength gaining, muscle building and weight loss. Her passion lies in enabling people to change their lives through health, wellness and nutrition. She believes that change starts with you; no one can make the decision for you, it has to come from within.  The first step is always the hardest, but once you make the commitment to yourself, you’ll never look back.  Mara competed in her first NPC Bikini Competition in 2015 and placed 5th in both the Novice B and Open C divisions! When Mara is not coaching she enjoys lifting weights, baking and staying active with her husband, Jesse, their son, Miles, and their Puggle, Zoie. The family recently relocated to Baxter, MN from the Twins Cities so they are looking forward to many bonfires, biking and hiking in the summer.
