Originally from Columbia, SC, Martha has lived in Clemson for the past decade. She graduated from Clemson University with bachelor’s and master's degrees in Plant and Environmental Sciences in 2016 and 2018, respectively.
Martha discovered her love of dance and movement as a teenager. Her interest in dance was reignited when she took her first Zumba class during graduate school. After her graduate program, she became a Zumba instructor in early 2019. Martha felt like she had found her true calling in instructing fun fitness classes. Over time, Martha shifted her career focus from the agricultural sciences to fitness. Martha is an ACE Group Fitness Instructor and holds specialty certifications in Barre Above, Balletone, TRX, Zumba, and Zumba Kids. She firmly believes that no one should trudge through a workout they hate, and that exercise should be fun. She is passionate about helping people discover workouts they find enjoyable and seeing people feel successful after completing a workout.
After three and a half years of instructing group fitness classes at CFC, Martha and her husband, Daniel, purchased Clemson Fitness Company in January 2023. Martha is excited for the future of CFC and will continue to make CFC an exciting, encouraging, and fun place to work out. When not teaching at CFC, she enjoys spending time with her husband and family, music, and cooking.
