Marcel Mayfield, an award-winning master fitness trainer and IFBB Pro who continues to raise eyebrows in her industry. As the owner of TrainTBFit Elite Club in Lawrenceville, GA, the 50-year-old superwoman is committed to educating her community about the importance of health and fitness, while also shattering the notion that people in “advanced age” can’t get into the best shape of their lives. She is living proof that with discipline, hard work, and protecting your God-given temple that is the body, people can look and feel great at any age.
As Marcel Mayfield looks across her newly opened TrainTBFit Elite Club in Lawrenceville, GA, she can already envision what the next several years will look like. One word, Successful. After all, settling for anything less than excellence has always been a big no-no for the Guyanese master fitness trainer and IFBB Pro. Hard work, determination, and a no-excuses mindset have been embedded in her DNA since childhood, which is why the now 50-year-old bundle of energy has competed in national competitions, won numerous awards, and is a highly sought-after coach and mentor to many men and women in the fitness world half her age.
Well, no one can argue that she puts in the work. However, it definitely isn’t simple. Mayfield trains daily and adheres to a strict diet which has helped her to garner amazing results that most people could only dream of. Chiseled arms, legs like a track star and washboard abs. Still, while it is far from easy, she emphasizes that women and men at an “advanced age” do not have to give up on their fitness goals. They just have to be more diligent. Fitness is Mayfield’s life. She eats, sleeps and breathes it – and now, she is on a mission to help as many people as possible to live their best, most confident and healthy lives as well.
Hustle and Soul Magazine got an exclusive interview with Marcel Mayfield.
Tammy Reese: What inspired you to become an entrepreneur?
Marcel Mayfield: I was inspired to become an entrepreneur after working for a large company for several years and realizing that one shoe doesn’t fit all. My objective was and is to implement and grow my brand on my own terms. Also, I love people and always wanted to do something where I could give back and make a valuable contribution to others. Entrepreneurship has allowed me to empower others through what I am most passionate about, fitness.
Tammy Reese: Please tell us what Traintbfit is all about?
Marcel Mayfield: Traintbfit was a goal of mine that I’ve been wanting to do for about 5 years but the timing was off. COVID-19, however, caused ripple effects in my life and forced me to forge ahead. Thus Traintbfit Elite Club was established.
Tammy Reese: What do you enjoy most about the work that you do?
Marcel Mayfield: What I truly enjoy most about my work is that I am able to witness first-hand how many lives are transformed (physically and mentally) for the better. When my clients are happy, not only with their results, with who they have become and what they are able to accomplish, that is a gratifying feeling.
Tammy Reese: How do you use your platform to empower others?
Marcel Mayfield: As a professional bodybuilder, my main goal is to not just compete, but to inspire others to believe that regardless of age you can achieve whatever you desire once you adopt the right mindset. Age is nothing but a number, and just because you are older it does not mean that you cannot be in amazing shape and look and feel great.
Tammy Reese: What can we be on the lookout for from you?
Marcel Mayfield: I will be competing in my first two professional competitions this June. Puerto Rico Pro in the Bahamas and Chicago Pro in my hometown of Atlanta GA.
Tammy Reese: Any fitness tips for our readers?
Marcel Mayfield: I want people to know that there is no 6 or 8 week training or diet plan that will undo years of an unhealthy lifestyle and poor nutritional habits. You have to find a sustainable nutritional plan, develop a consistent exercise schedule and TRUST THE PROCESS!! You get what you put into this.
Tammy Reese: What else would like for our readers to know about Traintbfit?
Marcel Mayfield: I would like to reiterate to your readers that the best project YOU will ever work on is yourself. Health is Wealth and CHANGE is a necessary ingredient for GROWTH!! Also, if you are in the Atlanta area, definitely stop by our gym. We are very family-oriented and dedicated to what we do – helping people to look and feel amazing. We are in the business of changing lives.
