Candace Lord is an adventure-seeking mom of two powerlifting kids, and she and her husband Jim Materkowski own Integrated Fitness of Dover. She enjoys staying active and healthy and lives by the four Fs—Family, Fun, Fitness, and Food!

Participated in Wellness at Young Age

Organized sports were a big part of her life from middle through high school, including swimming, track and field, and martial arts. She likes to run anything from 5Ks to half marathons, especially Spartan races! Moreover, she is a record-holding powerlifter in the State of New Hampshire through USA Powerlifting and Revolution Powerlifting Syndicate.

Continuing Education

Continuing her education is important to Candace. She is a certified personal trainer with the American Council on Exercise and a certified YogaFit instructor. She also received her PN Level 1 Nutrition Coach certification.


Several years ago, Candace started competing in bodybuilding shows and powerlifting meets. In 2018, Candace won her OCB Physique Pro Card as a natural bodybuilder. She is currently getting ready for the bodybuilding fall/winter 2020 season, hoping the current Covid-19 situation will still allow it to happen!

Candace has been in the health and fitness field for almost 15 years. Helping people of all levels of fitness reach their full potential is important to her. That is why her schedule as a personal trainer and coach is usually packed solid! Her motto? “If you are going to rise, you may as well shine!”
