Marsalie Headshot

Hi there! My name is Marsalie and I’m a proud Canadian living and working(out) in the District.

As a former collegiate soccer player, fitness has always been a big part of my life; however, since transitioning to a 9-5 job, I’ve had to become more conscious of my eating habits, my discretionary spending and – of course – my workout routine.

These days, you’re most likely to find me heading to barre class, bulk buying almond butter at Trader Joe’s or surfing the web for DC’s best brunch spots.


Hey! My name is Danny and I moved to Washington, D.C. from South Florida less than a year ago. Since I was 16, I have made fitness and health a top priority in my life. But finding the right workout has been as important to me as staying active.

As someone who loves going to the park to play pick-up basketball, I have always tried to find activities that are both fun and invigorating. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is necessary for everyone, but so is finding what is best and most feasible for you.

My weekly routine involves going to the gym 4 to 5 days a week and eating nutritious foods from some of D.C.’s best hidden gems, wraps from Cafe Tu-O-Tu in Georgetown are my favorite.


Hi! My name is Maribel Padial and I have been living in Washington D.C. for more than seven years. Going to college here and now working in this great city has really shaped my commitment to fitness.

The city has so many great gyms and fitness studios and I am always on the lookout for a new workout that will not only push me, but also work with my budget. I love attending spinning, barre, and crossfit classes and I strive to workout multiple times a week.

Since working out is a priority in my life, eating health is also vitally important. I spend a majority of my times scrambling through the aisles at Whole Foods trying to find the healthiest options that won’t strain my wallet too.

Health and wellness are so important and I think people should all incorporate it into our lives, without spending a fortune.


Hi! My name is Dominique and I love daily green smoothies that keep my hair and skin rejuvenated! I have been a member of Golds Gym in DC for going on a year and love attending body pump classes on Thursdays! Ever since beginning graduate school and constantly being on the go, I make sure to chug down tons of water throughout the day!

I am originally from Baltimore, Maryland, and now reside in the District. I love to explore the city and stay active.

Besides writing and shopping, I also love watching cooking videos in my spare time. Those include new recipes to healthy meals, and creative ways to make cooking fun. I am also a firm believer that fresh fruits and veggies are the keys to life. And although I love to keep up my image, I am never afraid to work up a good sweat!
