Grace M. Swartz – The short story is she is a passionate fitness trainer and life coach who focuses on helping you express the you that God made you to be!
Many of you may recognize Grace from her time with WWAY as host of Your Hometown Show, or the Being with Grace Podcast segment for Warrior Family Minstries. But that’s a side story.
After years in marketing, planning and promotion for companies like Dupont and Monsanto, Grace faced and recovered from an illness. Although she had previously been overweight and unfit, she had lost the weight and kept it off . The experience with “Cucuci’s Disease” drove home the need for more knowledge about creating lifelong health and fitness.
Saying goodbye to corporate America, Grace began her new journey as a Personal Trainer, Christian Group Fitness Instructor and Health Coach. She offers those services, with a special emphasis on adults, here in Chapel Hill today.

My days of exercise with Grace begin with asking our Dear Lord to be with us, with every step with take during the day. We exercise to music that inspires us to open our hearts to God's love and support, which in turn helps me throughout the day, every step I take. I glisten, perspire, use muscles I didn't know were there, I feel challenged and healthy. Grace sure is good; God is great!
She is wonderful! Energetic, positive, honest, patient, kind.....and, I consider her my "Amazing Grace"!!!
Love the support from scripture
Our “Amazing” Grace encourages each of us to work out at our own level and pace. Throughout the work out, Grace plays Christian music and strengthens us mentally, physically, and spiritually with scripture references. I am blessed to be a part of her class.
