About me

MaShelle Dean
Hey, I’m MaShelle – your Fit & Fabulous Coach!  I’m an AFAA certified Group Fitness Instructor, Health Coach, and a woman over 40 who just wants to live a happy, well balanced life.  I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Georgia State University and an MBA from the J. Mack Robinson College of Business.

I live in Atlanta, GA with my husband Ron. I’ve been a Certified Group Fitness Instructor since 2010 and have loved every minute of it! Aside from a uber fulfilling fitness career, one of my biggest accomplishments was being featured in the Chalean Extreme home fitness program infomercial! I never thought in a million years I’d be selected but I was. How awesome is that?! 🙂

My husband is a professional bodybuilder and personal trainer, so as you can imagine, healthy eating and fitness is inevitably a part of our lifestyle. We walk the walk and talk the talk!

I was inspired to start the Jiggle Free Zone to help women learn how to eat healthy, live an active lifestyle and look fabulous doing it! Subscribe to my YouTube channel for my workout proof hair tutorials, makeup & glam videos, and of course my fitness videos you can do right at home!

My ultimate goal is to empower women to feel strong and confident and take care of themselves, not only physically, but emotionally and spiritually too.  Be sure to sign up for my Fit & Fab Newsletter and connect with me on social media so you never miss my tips for living fit & fabulously!

You’d be surprised to learn that even as a fitness instructor, I can still pack on the pounds if I don’t watch what I eat. I LOVE good food! So I’ve spent years experimenting with making healthy meals that also taste good.  You can find those here.

My weight loss transformation story isn’t tragic and it won’t make you cry. In November 2010 I just got fed up with my clothes not fitting and being overweight and decided to do something about it!  Then and there I decided to exercise regularly and eat healthy for 1 solid year.  In five months, I lost 32 pounds and 4 dress sizes and haven’t looked back since!

Love you guys!

Coach M!
