About

Hey!  My name is Dustin Pelate and this is how I have come to specialize working with adults 40 and over, the most underserved members of the fitness community.

I started off as a trainer in 2008 in Collinsville.  In less than 18 months,  I had a full list of clients and learned a great deal as well as dedicating myself to getting clients great results.   Most of my clients were over 40 and I greatly enjoyed working with them and changing their lives for the better.

I soon learned that to get my clients great results, I would have to learn more about nutrition, which accounts for 60 to 80 percent of anyone’s goals, especially weight loss.  In 2012, I completed my Bachelor’s degree in human nutrition and dietetics.  Having worked with trainers and witnessed trainers give out misguided, incomplete, and dangerous advice, I understood my clients deserved better.

In 2015, I opened Maryville Fitness.  My goal was to create an intimidation-free and FUN environment for adults 40 and over to reach their fitness, weight loss, and health-related goals.  We even have clients in their 70’s that prove age is just a number when it comes to fitness and health.  At Maryville Fitness, we stay on the cutting edge of the best fitness and nutrition solutions and pride ourselves on a high level of customer service.
