About Madelyn

My goal as a fitness professional is to have a positive impact on your relationship with fitness. My job is to help you reach your fitness goals! I have experience with a wide range of clients - from those who have never held a dumbbell, all the way to powerlifters. I welcome clients of all levels!

 

My favorite clients are self-motivated, meaning they care about their fitness goals as much as I do. If you have been wanting to make that next step to reach your goals but don't know how, that is exactly why I am here. All you have to do is show up.

 

My athletic background started a little later in life. I was not naturally athletic and struggled with my weight growing up. I walked into a gym when I was 15, and all I knew how to use was the Stairmaster. From there, I worked my way through all of the equipment. I took pilates classes for several years and built a strong core (the foundation of all movements), which ultimately led me towards coaching group fitness classes in college. I loved coaching class, but my favorite part was always having a personal relationship with my clients and their fitness journeys, so I transitioned into personal training full time. I currenlty work as an independent trainer and at Equinox.


My favorite client story

I train a young woman who used to hide out on a cardio machine in the corner of the gym. She was not confident at the gym and she told me, "I need to lose 40lbs, but I don't want to focus on the scale." I asked her if there was a performance-based goal that was of interest to her, and she told me that she always wanted to do push-ups. Her 30th birthday was 6 months away, so we came up with "30 by 30" - 30 push-ups by her 30th birthday.

It took some time for her to warm up to training, but within a few months, she was stronger than she ever imagined. I remember about three weeks into our training when she told me, "My clothes are loose! But I don't even care about how much weight I've lost because I just feel so much better and have so much energy!"

Her progress continued and ultimately, she did successfully complete "30 by 30." She also lost 50lbs (10lbs more than her initial goal). Her progress has not stopped. Just last week, she bench pressed 100lbs!

She taught me one of my favorite lessons: to accompany performance goals with aesthetic goals to have multiple measures of success.

Like the title says, Madelyn is an amazing, well rounded trainer with a fantastic personality! I trained with her a couple times and have nothing bad to say at all! She challenged me in the right way and still made the sessions fun! Id say anyone who gets the chance to train with her is lucky as she takes pride in helping others reach their goals!
