ARIEL MIERENDORF

I am a Wisconsin girl at heart. I grew up in Arizona and received my bachelors from Fort Lewis College in Durango Colorado. While half of my heart still beats for the southwest, I have recently moved back to Madison to chase my roots. I grew up in an extremely athletic family of iron man athlete/ firefighter dad and rugby player/physique competitor mother. I myself have won state championship track events and competed at the national level in cross-country running.

My most recent achievements include winning first place in an OCB natural bikini competition. I went on to win second place at the NPC Natural Western in 2014 qualifying me for the national level. I competed two years in a row at the USA bodybuilding Championships in Las Vegas where I shared the stage with hundreds of beautiful, fit women. I love the focus and dedication it takes to get to the stage and I use the lessons I have learned from these experiences in my every day life.

My mother showed me the way around a weight room at a young age so personal training became a natural fit for me. I have participated in everything from Phat Camps with Miss fitness Olympia Jenny Hendershott, to putting the car in neutral and pushing it around the block with my dad in the scorching heat (for a workout!) I have been a personal trainer and group fitness instructor for 6 years. I feel incredibly blessed to have a job guiding individuals to achieve their goals whether it be confidence in the weight room, losing weight, body sculpting or competition prep or just getting back into fitness again (or for the first time!).

Fitness training is the one constant in my busy life and I’m compelled to share this love of health, strength, and balance with my community.

I could not think of a better tribe to belong to than
MadPower. There is an indescribable energy created from the classes and the space in the MadHouse and I am constantly in awe of the creativity of Amy and the rest of the Tribe Leaders. I teach MadPower, Armed and Dangerous, Yoga and personal training. It is my pleasure and passion to help you reach your fitness goals!
