Hi! I'm Mary Louise King, and I'm at my best

when I'm actively involved in what I love to do!

I offer personal training and dance lessons for either couples or small groups

in a safe and friendly atmosphere, in addition to group exercise.

Let me help you get fit while having fun!

I also offer personal training in chair-based exercise, yoga, and Pilates. (Wheelchair accessible)

Dance Lessons page.

I am available for public speaking on Lovely Light Living.


To support other local businesses, I am partnering with SpreeWV with the Charleston Main Streets organization, which allows you to earn a $50 gift card each quarter from Element Federal Credit Union for purchasing at least $300 in goods and services from East End and West Side businesses, including mine. For more information on how it works, go to: cwvmainstreets.org
