    "I have been working with Marianne for about 3 years now. Interestingly, I was a Personal Trainer for a while, so I think I have a particularly-good perspective when evaluating trainers. Marianne is "THE BEST"!! She is the consummate professional; she notices EVERYTHING, and she pushes when appropriate. She is constantly aware of form, ensuring that every exercise is done well and that you never hurt yourself. She focuses on something different each time, so you never know what to expect and you are never bored. Unlike MANY trainers who are just as happy to use your time to chat, Marianne gets the most she can out of every workout. Marianne is helping me "grow old gracefully", something I appreciate every single day. I trust her completely and feel very lucky to have her as my Trainer."

    I am one of Marianne's first clients and she has transformed not only my body, but my attitude. I used to be exercise adverse, but no longer - indeed I train first thing in the morning and I actually look forward to our 6:am sessions. Growing old is a privilege (and, as they say beats the alternative), but thanks to Marianne I am in better shape as I near 60 than I was when I was at 50. Marianne has a way of explaining and describing each excercise so that you really get how to do it the right way, and encourages you improve (and you do!). More than a talented and gifted trainer, and she certainly is that, she is one of the finest human beings I know. I consider myself very fortunate to not only have her as a trainer, but to have her in life.

    Marianne is an extraordinary coach and trainer. She is a consummate professional – she takes her craft seriously and applies it with skill and care. She is committed to your success, strengthening and safety. Marianne is more in tune to my body than I am and knows just how to target critical areas to optimize results.
    I have successfully avoided exercise for 40 years, and it shows. She sets forth a program that is challenging, yet allows me to feel successful at the end of each session. In 6 short weeks with Marianne, I am excited about feeling stronger and more fit than I can remember in recent history. The results are evident in my energy level, my body and my self-esteem. I cannot count how many people (unaware of my exercise efforts) have commented on how much thinner I appear. Better yet, I am so much stronger than I imagined possible.
    The end result with Marianne is that YOU are in control of your body and mind; you are strong and feel confident in your body. The by-product of this result is that you look better in a bathing suit.
    I cannot recommend her highly enough.

    Ok. I admit it. I do not like to excercise. But as a fifty-year old woman with young children, I knew I needed to step it up and pay more attention to my health and wellness. I have now been going to Marianne twice a week for over three years and it has made such a difference in my life. I am much stronger, have a lot more energy and generally just feel much better physically and emotionally. I can hardly believe it, but I now actually look forward to our sessions!

    Besides being extremely knowledgeable about fitness and nutrition, Marianne is a happy, grounded person, who continuously inspires me to work hard to achieve my fitness goals. I highly recommend Marianne to anyone who is looking for a personalized fitness program.

    I started working with Marianne more than four years ago, and it has changed my body and my life. She is amazing. I was told that I had to start working with weights because of an osteopenia diagnosis; now I WANT to work out and look forward to my twice weekly sessions. She is the comsummate professional: prepared, energetic and responsive to client needs. She has designed an exercise regimen that is good for someone of my age and ability, and changed the way I look and feel. She is an incredibly positive person, and makes even the most challenging exercises fun. I would highly recommend Marianne. She is not the run of the mill trainer, and and really works with each client to achieve the best possible result for that person. I hope to continue our partnership for a very long time!
