My name is Taylor Merritt, and I am married to my high school sweetheart, Spencer, and we have two kiddos — Marlie and Jax. I started this website to share my experiences and expertise as a mother, trainer and in nutrition.

The amount of information out there can be super overwhelming. I want “Sweaty as a Mother” to be a place where you can come to read about my experiences, try my workouts, and enjoy my delicious healthy recipes.

A little bit about my background — I graduated from DePaul University with a BS in Public Health and Health Education. I am an ACE Certified Personal Trainer and have many specialities including; sports and fitness nutrition, pre/post-natal and weight-loss. I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease when I was 18 years old, and have lived a gluten-free life ever since.

I recently made the hard decision to leave my full-time job — as the General Manager of TITLE Boxing Club — in hopes to pursue my passion for training, educating and “mom-ing”. For me, my health is a top priority and my goal is to help everyone find that same passion and balance for their own health and wellness. It takes a village Moms, together we can do anything!
