Maillard Howell

Maillard brings a unique combination of public health awareness, fitness expertise and entrepreneurship from 10 years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry and 8 years of running his own gym facility in Downtown Brooklyn, NY. Clinically diagnosed with depression, Maillard uses physical activity as one of his coping mechanisms.

Maillard’s mantra ” build your strength, build your life” is a testament to his belief that fitness and overall mental and physical wellness go hand in hand to a better quality of life. “I thoroughly enjoy helping others discover their inner athlete. It does not matter age, gender, fitness background etc., I am of the firm belief that once you have a body, you can move in some way that is consistently beneficial to your health.”
