The Mermaid Fitness™ Philosophy

We believe achieving health, wellness and balance should be fun and feel good, even as it challenges you to work hard. A good workout should be empowering and improve your body-awareness. We believe that fitness is the process of deepening the connection between your mind and body and becoming the healthiest, happiest version of who you are, who you have always been and who you have always wanted to be.


We believe there is a difference between athletics and health. Though, athletics may help us achieve some aspects of health, our overall wellness is not determined merely by the abilities of our physical body. Athleticism may lead to lasting health but only if the mind and body are joined together in the common pursuit of self-love and self-care. We believe that true health begins in the mind and the heart with a spirit of self-love, self-acceptance and the endless courage it requires to continuously evolve. From there, the body can be appreciated, loved, healed and made ever more healthy.


We believe there is a time for “going hard” and a time for rest, relaxation and taking stock. It is the goal of Mermaid Fitness™ to help you journey toward that balance. More importantly, it is the goal of Mermaid Fitness™ to encourage you to enjoy yourself on that journey.


And why tails? Mermaids are an ancient symbol of power, strength, beauty and grace. All of these qualities seem to come naturally from their deep belief in themselves (and their strong tails, of course!). In this way, Mermaids embody true wellness. Aside from all of that, it’s just hella fun to slip on a tail and move through the water like it’s what your body was born to do! And with that mercilessly long tail lever, Mermaids have the strongest, tightest, hardest core of any creature in water or on land!

    Private Lessons


    Private Lessons

    We offer individual or small group private lessons of any of our fitness programs: The Mermaid Workout, MerKids, and Landlocked Mermaids.

    The nature and cost of these lessons depends on your interests and location. Mermaid Fitness ™ HQ is located in the northwest region of Michigan's lower penninsula. The farther we travel from HQ, the more the cost of private lessons will vary.

    Please note: This is a fitness experience. We are NOT professional mermaids to be hired for entertainment purposes. We think that kind of thing is fun and all, but that's just not us. Thank you for understanding.
