I am 67. I have not been active for years. For medical reasons I have learned to be afraid of movement thinking any movement is painful. Margo helped me sort out what was in my head and showed me what my body can actually do without hurting me. She is completely honest in her evaluations. It did not take long until I looked forward to our sessions instead of fearing them. I always feel better after her sessions. I have never felt any judgement from her..only encouragement. Her knowledge as a personal trainer is extensive. She knows what she is doing for sure and has many modalities for training. My body feels better and as a bonus my self confidence, self esteem and self motivation are the best they have been in a long time. I highly recommend her as a personal trainer for anyone but especially for seniors who have special challenges or need help with self motivation.

Hey Margo, Just wanted to let you know that I’ve been loving your videos since I’ve been here in Chile. For example, today I’m at an observatory in the north of Chile, and the gym and roads are being repaired after some bad rainstorms, so I opted for your videos instead. I was able to get in a good, quick, intense workout, all in my little dorm room. So, from 10,000 feet elevation, in the middle of the Atacama Desert, this can by your un-official, international debut!! Thanks a bunch!!

Margo is awesome! A month ago I started my training with her & I see a BIG difference. I feel better & have lost weight!! She is very good at her job. She not only instructs but also does the exercises with you & makes sure you are doing it the right way. She is exactly what I needed! I highly recommend Margo!!

The best thing about training with Margo is that I always feel better when I leave. I feel that she gears each session according to my ability and goals. I feel challenged each time and that I’m progressing in increasing my agility, strength, balance and brain concentration. I love that she is patient and at the same time has high exceptions for me. I highly recommend Margo as a Personal Trainer.

I wanted to lose few pounds! I ran 2 miles 5 days a week, switched to “healthy food” but my weight got stuck at a certain number and wouldn’t go down! I found Margo on google and decided to give it a try! In 4 weeks I lost 5 pounds!!! Margo taught me how to reduce weight through nutrition and workout! And they weren’t big crazy steps!! In fact small steps at a time! Margo taught me a lot! Thank you sooooo much Margo! You are amazing!!!

Three weeks ago I was looking online for a fitness trainer close to my house. I found Margo, one on one fitness training. I am very pleased with her style of training, I am 60 years old and have been sedentary for awhile. My weight starting was 213 lbs and after three weeks I’m down to 207lbs. I have a way to go to my 165 goal and I am very confident that with Margo’s training and support that I will reach that goal.

Margo has changed my life. For years I have struggled to lose that last ten pounds. I have tried so many diets and nutrition plans. I have tried running, spinning, group classes, you name it. Exercise had become a dreaded chore that left me hungry and fatigued. When that last ten pounds started creeping up to 13, I decided it was time for a new approach. That’s when I found Margo and I have never looked back! In less than 2 months I am at my goal weight and continue to progress. Her workouts, tailored specifically for me, have been incredibly effective and fit well with my busy lifestyle. She keeps me accountable for what I’m eating and drinking, and she sincerely cares about my success. Best of all, Margo has given me the tools and the confidence to not only reach my goal weight, but to find more joy and happiness in many other areas of my life as well. I have confidence now, thanks to her, that I can achieve the goals I set for myself. Margo is truly a blessing to me, and I intend to stick with her for many years to come.

I started going to Margo less than a month ago and am already seeing results. I have lost a few pounds and I am feeling stronger and healthier. I am an over 50 lady who was starting to put on pounds and getting weaker. I tried various gyms but never got the instruction or what exactly I needed for my body type. I would wander around aimlessly trying different machines and weights. I would see no results so eventually I would quit going. On my first visit with Margo she assessed me and came up with a plan just for me. She works on the total person including diet and exercise. She has taught me so much already about healthier choices in my life. Margo has a happy positive attitude and I can tell she enjoys helping people live healthier lives. Thank you Margo!

I was completely out of shape and 90 lbs overweight when I started working out with Margo. In 14 weeks I have lost 30 lbs working out 2 times per week with Margo and following the Dukan diet, which she started me on. As a physician and working mother, my greatest concern when I decided to consult a personal trainer was finding someone experienced who would keep me from injuring myself. Margo has done that and so much more. During the 14 weeks with Margo we have rehabbed my wrist which was previously broken. She also modified exercises to accommodate an ankle I sprained at work. Margo has tons of experience and I couldn’t recommend her more highly! You will never be bored, she constantly changes the exercises. She is there 24/7 for her clients via phone or text. I have personally texted her when I needed encouragement on sticking to the Dukan diet, and she was right there, texting me back, holding me accountable. Give Margo a call, you won’t regret it!

My husband gave me Margo for my birthday. He knew I would never get a trainer for myself so he did it for me. It was the greatest gift I could have received. I started working out with Margo four months ago. I had 20 -22 pounds to lose and Margo helped me establish a new way of eating and showed me the correct way to exercise. I have lost the 22 pounds and have maintained that weight easily. I am 48 and I finally feel happy and fit. Thanks Margo….I consider you a great gift!

I began working with Margo in 2005 to get in shape in preparation for pregnancy. I had gained a considerable amount of weight during the course of fertility treatments because I had strayed from a regular workout routine, experienced wild hormonal fluctuations, and self-medicated my sadness with bad foods. Margo helped me shed 15lbs. and allowed me to become more aware of my diet. I also think that the physical fitness and weight loss helped increase my fertility and I became pregnant with my daughter soon after meeting several of my fitness and nutritional goals. Margo was supportive, collaborative and appropriately challenging in her approach. Margo is an outstanding trainer and I would recommend her to anyone.

Physical therapy was pretty much over but complications from a total hip replacement meant that it was going to take more effort on my part to learn how to use my left leg again. I also had to lose the weight I’d gained. I needed help and motivation because I wouldn’t do it on my own. Margo is a pro and gave me an immediate sense that she knew how to help me. She was supportive, encouraging, firm, realistic, and practical about what I needed to do to improve my physical condition. I appreciated the flexible schedule and I’m glad I found her!”

I have worked with Margo for the past several months. I am extremely pleased in her personal training and weight loss system. She not only works out your body where you feel amazing the next day, but she has set me up on an extremely do-able weight loss program as well, making my body look the best it can! She is very dedicated to her clients and is willing to stay on top of them in order to making it easy for them to keep on track through e-mail communication. She could definitely double as a life coach! She is a wonderful person full of great advice and willing to help you in leading a great life all around. I have had other personal trainers and I can honestly say she is the best one I’ve used by far! Granted I have known her for several months, I wouldn’t still be going if I thought it was a waste at all. I have no plans on ever stopping. She gives you the opportunity to live the life of one of those weight loss and fitness reality TV show contestants we have all been wanting to secretly be in order to make things happen, with no need to publicize it to the world! You will be lucky to find a way for her to fit you into her schedule, just as long as you don’t knock me off of the calendar!

Margo has changed my life! Eight months ago I hired Margo as my personal trainer and now my family and friends all agree I have been physically transformed. At the age of 62 I was 35 pounds overweight and totally out of shape. With Margo’s nutritional guidance and remarkable physical training, I reached my weight goal in 6 months and feel energetic, strong, and rejuvenated. Margo is very knowledgeable, positive, and completely committed to improving my physical well-being. I am extremely pleased with my choice of Margo – she has made me feel and look great! Margo is a 10!

Not your average trainer! I’ve had several. Margo is the most knowledgeable, energetic and all-around complete trainer I’ve worked with. She is 100% focused on her clients, and it is clear that she derives joy from their successes. I’ve lost pounds and inches, and gained strength and energy. Margo tailors each workout for what you need that day. She is the brains behind the fitness aspect of my life – all I have to do is show up ready to work hard!

I’ve been a fairly good exerciser most of my adult life. Not very consistent in a particular approach, but I generally kept at it in some form or another. Then, a few years ago, I went through a really tough time and one result was that I went into a real exercise slump.

Now, my primary goal is to improve the quality of my life – how I feel in my body and about myself. I figure any loss of weight or inches will be a bonus. I’ve learned about myself that personal interaction makes a big difference in my level of success when I’m tackling tough challenges. Finding the right coach is key, and Margo is great. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience, plus she listens and really “gets it> about what I’m looking for. Having Margo come into my home, over Skype, is such a great fit for me and my schedule. It’s amazing how much she can see and pick up, even though she’s not in the room with me! Her workouts are very effective without taking a lot of time. I’ve been working with her for only a few weeks and I am already enjoying the benefits!

Do yourself a favor – call Margo! Her program is simple, successful, and totally doable in real-life (even with three small kiddos!) I am tickled to have lost substantial weight in short time, increased my energy, and think more clearly. I am also toning those abs after three pregnancies and two c-sections! Oh, and it is fun – who knew!?!
– Kellye (39)

I am so happy I found Margo. Trying to lose the pregnancy pounds was a struggle for me but Margo put me on a doable workout schedule, and healthier diet, that had me feeling better in a few weeks. I look forward to my sessions with her, which is new for me as I’ve always dreaded working out. Her motivation and encouragement kept me going and I saw, and felt, results immediately. She is everything you’d want in a trainer!
