Mer Doty

Mer and Gryff

Hi! Welcome to Workout With Mer! My name is Meredith, I’m currently living

in Boston with my boyfriend Dave and our puppy, Gryff. I’m either found at

the Handle Bar cycle studio, creating something tasty in the kitchen, or

at LogMeIn: my full time job where I am an Account Executive.

I grew up overweight, and when I started my fitness journey there seemed

to be no one out there that I connected with physically - no one seemed to look like me. When I thought about taking the jump into instructing, I held myself back. I didn't think people would take me seriously because of my size. And, honestly, some didn't. But some did. It took me a long time to realize 

what makes me different is my strength. 


I'm passionate about helping others put an end to the limiting thoughts of

self-doubt and get on with living their best life! 


My blog will talk about my fitness journey, my eating habits, my exercise habits, life as a fitness instructor, as well as some other occasional chats and hopefully some recipes (I love to cook and bake). I hope you come here to find inspiration and motivation and that by reading something here you can push yourself to reach your goals and dreams and find your most confident, fit, authentically happy life.
