At the age of 51, Marlene Atkin competed in her very first fitness competition at ’13 Boston Championships as part of Body Ambition team and took 2nd place in the Ms. Bikini Masters division.
Deciding to take it up a notch, this spring, Marlene competed in both figure and bikini at ‘14 New England Championships. She won 1st place in the Figure Masters and 3rd place in the Ms. Bikini Masters division.
An avid student of all things health and wellness related, Marlene believes that the human body is an incredible machine. If treated with the respect it deserves, the body will go wherever the mind wants to take it. Marlene’s passion is sharing that message through her own personal journey and through her roles as a NASM personal trainer and as a Health Educator. Married and the mother of two sons, ages 22 and 21, Marlene discovered weight training after college. She has spent the past 30 years using weight training as the core of her own personal fitness program. Marlene has modeled that lifestyle for her sons throughout their entire lives and is thrilled that her oldest son, having just graduated college, is now competing in Natural Body Building and Physique competitions. Inspiring her children and others to reach for their highest ambitions at any age is truly one of the most rewarding aspects of being a figure and bikini competitor. She will be spreading her message of how to live a deliciously fit life at any age through her company Fit-licious at MarleneAtkin.com.
