“Training with Mary has changed my life! Her knowledge of body mechanics and her innate ability to personalize my workout regiment has made all the difference. Mary’s energetic style and passion for fitness make getting into shape.”Shelly
“I am a “senior”, and after several falls I started working with Mary. She is helping me recover my balance and strength, as well as preserve my flexibility and combat the pain from arthritis.”Joan
Mary was instrumental in helping me condition for long distance cycling events over the past several years. She provided challenging workouts tailored specifically for me, taking into account the limitations with my knees, and helped me achieve my weight loss and fitness goals. She also helped me rehabilitate after several surgeries, the largest of which was kidney transplant donor surgery and most recently two level cervical spine discectomy and fusion. I believe I returned to my daily activities and very active lifestyle (even water skiing!) ahead of estimated recovery due to Mary’s keen understanding of what my body had been through and her years of experience training people with various injuries/illnesses. I recommend Mary without hesitation to help you achieve any of your fitness goals.
