I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago always being an active child. I was always more interested in being outdoors and getting dirty than I was about playing with Barbie’s. One day when I was about 7 years old, I asked my father to sign me up for basketball. My parents were unsure about the idea, but with my persistence, they finally gave in and from then on my sports were one of the biggest things in my life. As a kid, I was involved in basketball and softball through the park district programs and brought the skills I learned to try out for the school teams. To my surprise I made the varsity team as a sophomore. I was so thrilled and worked as hard as I could to improve my skills. When it came to choosing college athletics, it didn’t play into the cards, but I still remained active. Being the rebellious child that I was, when my dad told me to do something in the sports industry of course I had to defy him and major in Sociology. To his surprise a few years after college graduation, I went back to school to learn the profession of personal training and he got to give me the infamous “I told you so”. Once obtaining all of my education I went to work for Lifetime Fitness, which I found to be a good experience as a new trainer but I knew that the corporate mission was not meshing with my own. During my employment there I was able to change a lot of peoples lives through individual and group training. Upon my departure from them, I have made it my mission to help as many people as possible and live my vision of having a happy and healthy community by changing one person at a time. I have a very supportive husband who has been my rock in my journey to be an independent personal trainer and we hope to have “my” business as “ours” so we can teach together and promote healthy living.

"Maggie is an outstanding personal trainer and teacher. I worked out with a few trainers prior to Maggie and received my best results with her. Maggie’s vast fitness knowledge and desire to stay current on the latest techniques that work, and gimmicks that don’t, will allow you to reach your goals safely and efficiently. She is not only a great trainer, but a great person, which makes it fun to train with her. I will continue to recommend Maggie to anyone looking for results!"
