Owner, Female Weight Loss Specialist / Personal Trainer / Health and Fitness Coach

Here at You Be Fit, we help people take the confusion out of better health, exercise, and nutrition which is the starting point to success!

“There is so much misinformation out there about diet, exercise, and nutrition, people get so confused and don’t know what to do.  So we start,  get overwhelmed, get discouraged and then stop. What we do at You-Be-Fit is help you understand the basics of diet, exercise, and nutrition, position you closer to your personal goals, provide direction, support, and accountability and establish a game plan for you that will last a lifetime instead of a moment in time.”

Being a former U.S. Army Master Fitness Trainer, Personal Trainer, Certified Fitness Nutritionist (CFN) and a Health & Fitness Consultant, I have a passion for helping people in the areas of wellness, exercise, and fitness.  It’s important we understand that even if you pile on the fruits and vegetables, drink plenty of juice and milk, and eat fish a couple of times a week, we may not be getting all the nutrients we need. We need help to fill the gap between what’s in the food we eat and the nutrition our body needs for optimum health and to help us avoid chronic conditions and diseases down the road. The problem is that most people don’t eat right or exercise properly. So I decided to take matters into my own hands and help people who want better health, walk through the nutritional maze and make it safely to the other side!

I started training with Wallace on April 1, 2019 after the devastating loss of my husband in August. During that time, I found myself not in a good place physically and mentally. While trying to struggle my way through, I did what felt familiar and comfortable to me which was go to the gym and work out to relieve stress. The problem was I wasn’t fully committed. During a workout session of water aerobics, I noticed this energetic instructor pushing people of all ages through a very vigorous workout. I thought to myself that is what I need. So I put my name down on the clip board for more information. The next day I started receiving emails
and motivational YouTube videos from Wallace about health, nutrition and exercises. As I started to engage in the information I thought ok, it’s time to get yourself together. So I reached out and that was the beginning of my journey to get fit with YoubeFit. These past few months have been one of the most the hardest, but rewarding times in my life. Wallace has pushed me beyond what I ever expected of myself. I started with 8 lbs weights and can now lift up to 25lbs in 6 months. The cool thing about training with Wallace is that it is not only about the physical, but he ensures you are mentally ready. He holds you accountable and inspires you at the same time. Working with Wallace and his YoubeFit program has been life changing and from this I know I can push on and continue to keep the temple God has given me clean and ready for the blessing he has in store. #YoubeFit, #Besttrainerever, #Itsgametime  – Angela

After searching and trying many options through the years, I have found a personal trainer who includes nutrition and around the clock encouragement and support. I am losing weight slow and steady and at 68 yrs old, I have learned so much about exercise and wellness. I feel stronger and healthier than I have in years. – Maria

There is something remarkable and unique about Wallace Merriman\You-Be-Fit. As a person who has experienced obesity for many years, (all of my life actually), I began to feel that obesity and all of the diseases that accompany it, was just my unfortunate destiny. Much of my time and money had been spent on weight loss programs, fitness organizations, weight loss pills (lies), and misinformation, all of which left me with dietary brain clutter and defeat. When I connected with Wallace and You-Be-Fit, I was at a desperate point in my life…grotesquely overweight, tremendously sick (13 meds a day), and unproductive attitude! Wallace immediately recognized the space that I was in and began encouraging me, deprogramming me, addressing my fears and leading me to a balanced exercise and nutritional path that I am still following today. Let me just say, MY LIFE HAS BEEN CHANGED! A year later, I am 100 pounds down, healthier than I have ever been and feeling successful! It continues to be a work in progress, but I I couldn’t have reached this point without You-Be-Fit. I owe Wallace a lifetime of gratitude. – Shelia

You Be Fit was not just a game changer, but a LIFE CHANGER!

Sometimes you dont realize how ignorant you are on a matter until someone more aware comes in and teaches you or exposes you to things you never thought could be a part of your norm.

Coach Wallace has been that! Nothing short of a Godsend! I will say the biggest and most important thing that has shifted is my mindset. I came in to the initial consultation like “Is this even possible?” and I left like “Amanda, you are going to do this!” His professionalism, yet confidence/ overall knowledge had me wanting to know more. I won’t lie I was saying ouch inwardly because I had been neglecting my health for so long but I knew that this was a HUGE decision, like a new job, a new house…yep that big…because it would cause me to take in a WHOLE new LIFESTYLE!

I was dehydrating myself, starving myself, not exercising, unmotivated, self image (how I viewed myself was thumbs down) just really blaah and wondering what is wrong with me because this just CAN’T be me. Now I’m well hydrated, eating clean, exercising….wait did I mention actually excited to exercise…pushing through/motivated…excited of who I am becoming!

“Your health is your wealth” is always playing in my head…blame Wallace..which was not the case a little over a month ago. I am creating a new norm. The accountability is necessary…to have someone walk alongside you and pull out what you thought was impossible…there’s depth there. I have a community I didnt even know I needed..between Boot Camp Conditioning, AquaFit classes and personal training. My life has no choice but to change!

I am just saying if you want to invest in you and get your WHOLE life together You Be Fit is the way to go! – Amanda

I have gone down many paths for maintaining a healthy weight with some success but unable to sustain the weight loss. Wallace, of You Be Fit, is extremely qualified, specializes in weight loss for women and has helped me not only to articulate my goals but also to identify the road blocks to my success. He does this with an extraordinary grasp of female psychology, humor, enthusiasm and energy. He provides daily positive reinforcement and reminders of what you are going to accomplish. This includes a detailed plan of what you need to do to attain your personalized goals. I would recommend him to anyone who is serious about healthy weight loss through life style changes. – Jackie

Client Love

Very positive and motivational trainer. Wallace really works with you to tackle your goal. Ultimately it is up to you to do you part but his dedication to helping out along the way is amazing. – Niya

Client Love

Working with You Be Fit has been a life changing experience. Wallace cares so much about his clients’ success and well-being. He invests so much of himself in my physical and emotional assessments. He is well-equipped with the tools and personalized plans that will help you to meet your weight loss goals. He is an excellent and patient motivator who will motivate you to be accountable. His daily reminders and motivational thoughts encouragingly nudge me to be my best self; mind, body, and spirit. It’s rare to find a life coach, personal trainer, nutritionists, and mentor all in one! It is a blessing to work with You Be Fit! – Sabrina

The first time I encountered You Be Fit, I immediately knew that I wanted to incorporate it into my life so that I can see a life change occur. Not only is You Be Fit committed to fitness and nutrition, but there is mental and spiritual wellness as well. – Beverly

Mr. Wallace, is a superb trainer. He keeps you motivated, and focused. Even when you miss your mark, he gives you encouragement to keep going to try again the next day. I received daily motivations, water CV checks and healthy recipes.
I gave up my saltine crackers that unknown to me was killing me slowly. Through the be fit app I discovered what I was eating and its fat and calorie count. It made me change what i was digesting. Not a diet but a life change.

Special note: Awesome meal replacement granola bars and drinks. They really help because before I was skipping meals which didn’t help

Again, subperb. If I can do it anyone can. Once you make up your mine to make a change. – Doretha

Who Is Next To Spread Some Client Love?

Though you cannot choose the strength or direction of the wind, you can decide precisely where it propels you.

All you must do is take the next step. No matter how distant or complex or challenging the goal may be, the thing to do is take the next step.


How Can We Serve You?


If you really know what you want out of life, it’s amazing how opportunities will come to enable you to carry them out. 

Stop telling yourself what you should do, what you need to do, what you want to do. Take in a deep breath of energy and determination, and do it. Wishing is easy, but it leaves you empty. Doing is much more difficult, yet it is far more satisfying.
