Mary Glynos

I am an army veteran, a breast cancer survivor, born with a bilateral cleft lip and palate and a High school athlete.

After the army I had to figure out who I was and how to live life with injuries from serving my country. No matter what I tried FITNESS has always been at the top of my list. It is a job that I can be proud of every single day.

I have an associate's in medical assistant, a bachelors in community health education and currently will be graduating May 2022 as a social worker. I have my certified personal training since January 2014 and received a certification from Barebells for Boobs to train fellow survivors and those going through Breast Cancer treatment in 2019.

Since the pandemic I left the commercial gym and have been training my own clients inside my garage and outside in parks and tracks.

Short biography

I have always been looked down upon because of my height.I see it as a challenge to improve my life around me and show there is nothing I can not do. Fitness doesn't have a time frame or a height requirement.



What are you most passionate about in your work? What motivates you?

What motivates me is seeing my clients succeed in things they did not think was possible.

Are you willing to relocate?


Which coaching skills do you possess that set you apart from other coaches?

Soon to be licensed social worker I have skills of a therapist with communication and using the knowledge the client gives me to build their program with nutrition, exercise and rest/recovery days

Where do you see yourself in your career in 5 years?

My ultimate goal is to have a community center that incorporates fitness, love of the community, teaching skills and given back

Tell us about a coach you've worked with who has mentored you or a coach you've learned from online.

Being an army veteran I learn from my marine coach. He breaks things down in a way I can understand both physically and mentally. It's how I precieve myself to my clients. I listen to them and work with them instead of copying and pasting the same routine for everyone unless its a specific holiday. Then I just modify certain movements.

What are your values as a coach that differentiate you from others?

My communication and listening skills. I truly believe in my clients and want them to succeed.

Which certification or seminar has had the biggest impact on your coaching skills?

My Breast Cancer certificiation. After going through breast cancer at the age of 34 I had to relearn how to use my upper body and know how to work range of motion. Non of my bosses knew how and breast cancer survivors usually shy away from trainers who do not understand the knowledge it takes to prevent lymphademia.

Being that person for fellow survivors or those going through treatment lets them know someone understands. It also works on my transgender clients going for top surgery. It is a similar procedure and recovery and if not done correctly can cause lasting affects.

What Specialty Programs can you create for your new facility?

Crossfit and strngth/conditioning is great but, OCR has become very popular especially with new athletes who want to lose weight and build muscle. OCR closely resembles crossfit mixed with military training.

Are you a military veteran?

Yes Active Duty Army Nov 2001-Jan 2008
