What Clients Say:

“Megan is a great trainer. She’s high energy, enthusiastic, and exudes freshness. Her workouts are very complete, addressing all major muscle areas of the body. In less than 10 workouts I’ve already regained lost endurance and muscle tone and can feel and see the difference in my body. I also feel great because she’s getting me back into a healthy morning rhythm. I would definitely recommend Megan to anyone looking for a great workout (personally I like to have her working out with me versus observing me). Her personality is wholesome, Megan is trustworthy and for me this is key when inviting someone into my home. Megan is an excellent trainer – I am very happy with our sessions.” – Marla

I sought out Megan specifically because of her down to earth philosophy and approach to health and fitness that I read about on her website. I thought she looked great and her attitude towards fitness was the kind I wanted to have. From beginning Megan was very organized and resourceful about everything — from nutrition to motivation advice to proper form for workouts (especially those kettle bell swings!).

The greatest benefit I’ve had from working with Megan is definitely the resources she’s supplied me with. I feel like I have more control over my workouts and I’m happy to be a lot more consistent with my workout schedule and my eating habits. More importantly, I’ve learned that just because achieving the results I want will take time it doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy the journey. Most of the work is really in mental and Megan has given me that extra push to keep a persistent mentality.

I’d recommend Megan for any college students that feel too busy to focus on their health and just want to start making that commitment to their own well-being. Also if someone is familiar with some workouts but wants to increase the intensity or variety, they should definitely work with Megan, too. Megan works well around people’s schedules, is very reachable, and resourceful!” – Errol, pictured above (went from 7 push-ups to 17!)

“I started working out on my own but wanted to make sure I was doing things correctly and getting a good overall workout. Megan met with me and helped me figure out my goals and then designed a workout plan that worked for me and would be something I could do at the gym and at home. She checked in regularly and was helpful when I was recovering from an injury and getting back on track. She’s very positive and is able to help people at any fitness level work towards their goals. I highly recommend her!” -Diana (lost 7.7% body fat; decreased fat mass -17.6l bs and increased fat free mass (muscle) by +6.2 lbs)

Megan helped me shape a better me!
I had three problems:

  1. a wonderful pregnancy and birth of an amazing baby boy,  that left me totally out of shape;
  2. a strong repulsion for any gym and aversion for any type of gym equipment and
  3. an incorrigible lack of self motivation.

Megan helped me address all these issues. By being there waiting for me every week and planning a schedule that would fit into my busy calendar, she eliminated any excuse for not being able to make it. 

Megan patiently helped me discover all the machines available in the gym and tailored the exercises on them to my strength and my ability. Thus, I discovered that when you know how to use gym equipment properly you actually get great exercise and can control your body better and avoiding injuries. Megan kept on changing the sequences of exercises so that it would never feel boring or repetitive so each time I discovered a new exercise and a new way to organize a new sequence.

So in the end I got familiar with the gym, I was surprisingly able to never miss an appointment and after only few months my body shape changed, with muscles more sculpted, less body fat and an overall better feeling about myself. Thank you Megan!” -Silvia, decreased body fat percentage and lost weight

“This was my first experience with a personal trainer, and it was as challenging and exciting as I thought it would be. I started my fitness journey at the beginning of the year, like many of us do every year, and Megan provided the accountability and expertise to help me persevere through the “honeymoon phase” of the fitness journey. What I liked most was that she asked questions about my goals and immediately incorporated it into our sessions. She provided me basic workout routines to do on my own, and then showed me a variety of new exercises during our sessions together to keep me from getting bored. Because of Megan’s encouragement, I was able to keep a personal commitment to myself to prioritize fitness even during a very busy semester in graduate school. And the results were worth the effort: I lost 3.9% body fat, gained 6.4 pound of fat free weight while also losing overall body weight. I also went from doing 1 full pushup to 18 pushups (and can easily pick friends up and give them piggy back rides). I feel stronger, happier, and healthier than I have in years thanks to the support Megan provided during the past few months.” -Jess (pictured above)

I really enjoy the workout time spent together with Megan, she is a hard working and excellent trainer. This was my first time of working out a personal trainer, and the experience was much better than I expected. I had little experiences of using exercise equipment, and I didn’t enjoy working out at all. The training sessions together with Megan have really helped me improve my muscle strength. I found it is very helpful that she is always trying to push me to my extreme in a tender and gentle way. I will never try challenge myself that hard without her present, encourage, instruction and protection. Megan is very patient and encouraging. I have learned many exercise gestures from her, she was trying to teach me something new, and the same time keep me review the gestures (movements) familiar to me. She has a good exercise plan for me, at the same time, she is always trying to figure out what do I really need and also what I want to focus on. Megan also helped me build the confidence and interests in exercise. She asked me many times what is my favorite workout during the sessions. In addition to the exercise knowledge, she has also shared me the diet and nutritional knowledge. I also feel she herself is one of my motivation to exercise consistently… I was quite busy and tired in the past a few months, many times I felt that I will never go to exercise without Megan was there. I really appreciate the knowledge, encouragement, and the support from her!” -Lettie

“Megan helped me with my diet plan. I know how to exercise, but wasn’t skilled with nutrition. Many people get confused about what trainers are actually meant to do. They aren’t there to do the work for you, or be the source of your motivation. She helped facilitate my own drive and desire to get healthy. There wasn’t the feeling of “If I fail, she’ll catch me.” Rather, it was “If I fail, I failed, but she’ll be there to help me forward.” Of course, if she had done everything for me, that would have defeated the purpose of having a trainer at all. Know your role, she knows hers.” – David

“Megan targeted my fitness needs, and was an excellent trainer as she led me through each exercise, and provided positive motivation. I couldn’t have asked for a better personal trainer!”– Mardy (lost 5 pounds- still gets compliments on her fitness progress!)

Feedback from 12 Week Weight Loss participants:

“I just wanted to say Thank You for all the great knowledge, encouragement and consistency you brought to my life. I wasn’t in today, but I think you would be proud. I went on a run yesterday (more like a run, jog, walk, sprint, run and walk) for 45 minutes. I now feel confident enough to be able to tackle the gym and to tackle my goals. This wouldn’t have been possible if I didn’t have you as a trainer, so Thank You! I now feel more prepared to work out consistently in the summer and to eat better. I can finally say that I don’t overeat, and that I’m eating healthier, a lot of veggies although I do have to work on eating more fruit. I appreciate your help in jump starting my new lifestyle. I can finally be one of those people who sits outside and has a salad LOL. I just, overall feel better about myself and my future outlook.”
“Thanks so much for these past 3 months! I appreciate all the work you have put into this program and it was a blessing to have you as a trainer. Your commitment to the people in the program and the training itself is inspiring, and I hope others have the chance to experience it!”
