Teresa Marchese

Teresa Marchese
Fitness and Nutrition Coach

A motivator and inspirer by nature and trade, Teresa Marchese is the founder of Rock Solid Fitness and Wellness, a San Francisco based Women's Health Club. After years of working a high powered "real job" where she got dressed up and wore high heels, Teresa went back to school and earned a law degree. The challenge of staying healthy and fit during law school motivated Teresa to start a business where it was required that she do so. The last decade has seen her become an expert in fitness, nutrition, body cleansing and detoxification, and overall wellness practices. Her goal is to empower women to lead extraordinary lives—to take their health into their own hands, and walk the world with strength, courage, power, beauty, and passion.

An avid traveler, Teresa seeks out her current location's most scenic trails and incorporates them into her own workout routines. Whatever her surroundings, she is challenged and inspired to design simple and effective ways to stay fit and healthy on the go. And she's here to help you do the same.

Teresa and her programs have been featured in Health Magazine, Sunset magazine, the San Francisco Chronicle, KRON 4 news in San Francisco, MSNBC.com and CNN.com.
