The ARENA Philosophy

ARENA is different from any other brand because of its unique, all-encompassing approach to wellness, & the wide variety of resources & classes it offers.  At ARENA, we want you to feel welcome, safe, & empowered!

ARENA's ideal customers are of all ages, abilities, & backgrounds.

Our methodology unites traditional exercise components; strength training, yoga, dance, plyometrics, interval training, cardiovascular endurance, & nutrition- with more homeopathic elements of health; metaphysical awareness, zero balancing, movement therapy, positive energy work, posturing, & mindful breathing. 

ARENA also offers many holistic motivational workshops & educational classes in- nutrition, proper posture, injury rehab, reducing chronic inflammation, heart health, avoiding injury, how to stay motivated, & how mental & emotional trauma can lead to physical manifestations in the body.

We want to get you in shape- in all aspects of your life.


Who is Marina Arena?


As the founder and owner of ARENA, my 15 years in the fitness/wellness industry has taught me SO much. Working for myself has taught me even more. If there is something that goes wrong, I have myself to answer to & only myself to blame - so failure is not an option for me. I am not afraid of failing because I know I won't. Certainly some elements might not work but I will continue to try until I find the working formula. The only thing I am afraid of is not trying. I am nothing if not determined. Having a positive outlook has gotten me out of the darkest and scariest of places, and health & fitness has quite literally saved my life. My goal not only for my business but for my LIFE is to help AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE. There are a lot of people out there who are in pain. Not just physically, but emotionally; and their suffering manifests physically through poor nutrition, chronic pain, & injury. Although  I want to be here for everybody, those are the people I want to help the most."

"Marina is an amazing trainer! Ever since I started taking her ALPHA & ZUMBA classes at Life Time I fell in love with her way of coaching & training. She's fun, creative, innovative & most importantly keeps us on our toes all the time.   My favorite memory of Marina, (besides her super creative & fun training sessions during the holidays) was when she was training me one on one & she had me do 1 minute plank. I kept putting my knees down because I was so tired, sneaky me thought the minute would just expire, but she would PAUSE THE TIME UNTIL I FINISHED THE FULL MINUTE. At the time I hated it, but also loved that she believed in me & pushed me to do my best!  I 100% recommend Marina, & I'm sure ARENA will be just as amazing with such a great owner!"

~Ana Maya

"I've worked out with Marina's leadership & coaching 3-4 times per week since 2017. She is a huge inspiration of positivity to me, encouraging my physical & emotional health to thrive! Her energy & enthusiasm for dance & fitness are SO contagious, it motivates me to come to the gym regularly! I enjoy the music & high energy of her Zumba classes as an effective cardio workout. I also appreciate that she emphasizes building strength & flexibility, offering class formats that focus on upper body, core, etc. Finally, I appreciate that she has a strong background in kinesiology, so when I have a physical strain or concern, she enthusiastically offers advice for dealing with the issue during my workouts and daily life."

"Marina is the best trainer I've ever had. She is probably the most knowledgeable person I have ever met. She changed my life!!"

~Aiden Drumm

"I have been following Marina since she started teaching fitness classes and then personal training.  I'd never been one of those people who loves the gym, I had never had the self discipline or motivation.
Marina is able to motivate me & all her students & give us a fun experience that makes us look forward to the next one.  No two PT sessions or classes are the same, there is always something fresh about them. Also, she is very knowledgeable and experienced so each training session is tailored to you. She really cares for all her students at a personal level too, and I have seen how she makes sacrifices so everyone is happy and closer to their goals.  Seeing how talented and selfless she is, is inspiring.  Take a PT session, a Zumba Class, you will leave invigorated."
