Marjorie Behm

Founder & Instructor

In 2005, Marjorie completed the Bayshore Marathon in Traverse City. While training, she became passionate about the world of fitness, health, and nutrition. Since her first marathon, she’s completed multiple races and loves staying active with the Grand Rapids fitness scene. In 2010, she joined a 30 day, whole-foods detox and never looked back. She instantly felt revitalized and noticed a significant boost in her energy, mental clarity, and workout performance.

Marjorie is dedicated to learning about nourishing foods, natural products, and holistic health. She’s also a green-smoothie-obsessed yogi and runner who enjoys walking her pup and the occasional barre and boot-camp class. She loves to write, she’ll read any book you hand to her, and she’s willing to spend hours hunting down a ripe avocado.

Marjorie received her education degree from Hope College, her Masters from GVSU, and has 10+ years experience in coaching and teaching. She is currently studying to become a certified health coach. With the platform of GR Healthy Living, she’s thrilled to help people achieve their personal wellness and fitness goals.

Caitlin Volovlek

Health Coach & Instructor

From the moment she joined a basketball team in second grade, Caitlin has been hooked on fitness. The Jane Fonda videos and 1980’s thong leotards have been upgraded for HIIT, TRX, kickboxing, and lifting routines. She doesn’t leave it all in the gym either; Caitlin has competed in a 25k, four triathlons, and three Iceman Cometh mountain bike races.

While a lifelong athlete, Caitlin did not take her nutrition seriously until her mid-thirties. She was generally healthy, but some bad habits caught up to her. She took control of her nutrition by joining a local detox group in 2012; it revolutionized her approach to food. Many years of research and practice in the kitchen have inspired Caitlin to share her wisdom with others. She crushes it at the gym AND the kitchen. By embracing the food + activity equation, Caitlin overhauled her life.  Add mindfulness training and the the results are a trifecta of peak wellness.

Caitlin holds a bachelor’s degree from Michigan State University and a master’s degree from Aquinas College. She’s been a high school English teacher for the past 18 years. Currently, she’s enrolled in Cornell University’s plant-based nutrition program and earning her group fitness certification.
