She has been a long time member of Fitness Experience, starting when she was just 15 years old! Mason says that “Fitness Experience was my first coaching job and has been a second home to me for the better part of a decade. I love helping clients crush their goals through personal training and strength and conditioning classes to live a longer and healthier life.”
