My name is Madeline and I grew up in the Issaquah/Bellevue area. Growing up I was very active and was on swim team for about 13 years. As soon as I graduated high school I learned how hard it was to balance diet and exercise and within three years I had gained over 90 pounds. As I was losing the weight I realized that I wanted to help other people do the same and enrolled at Bellevue college to get my personal training certification. Soon after that I got my American Council on Exercise certification.
After losing the 90 pounds I ran in a marathon and within the last year I switched to Bodybuilding and competed in my first bodybuilding competition of September 2017 placing third. I want to help other people reach their goals whether that's losing weight, gaining muscle, training for an event or to just simply be stronger. I've worked with clients of all ages ranging from 25-77 all having different goals. Working with people for functional fitness, to developing more balance and stronger core to just working on overall strength.
A training session with me is a lot of fun and can range from a circuit training work to HIIT. Be prepared to work hard but to also have a lot of fun to.

Here’s to you Madeline! I am so grateful that you have been in my life and trained me. She has been an amazing very talented, skilled professional fitness instructor. I hope to have her train me for a long time. I always have the trust that she is truly dedicated to my health and being as fit as I can possibly be, which is my goal. She is careful that the exercises that she has planned for me in each session are done correctly so that I am never injured. Also, she makes working out so interesting as she comes up with new exercises all the time. I can always feel that what I do with her is extremely effective and leave the gym feeling so happy. What a gift she is is in so many ways, especially as she is such a lovely person who is so enjoyable to be with.
I’ve been training with Madeline for about four months, and I’ve had a positive and fruitful experience with her. Madeline is a knowledgeable, supportive trainer. When I began training, I was somewhat self-conscious about how un-fit I was. Yet Madeline designed a program appropriate to my level, and she helped me recognize the improvements that I made. After we reached my initial goals, she helped me set new goals and designed a new program around them. I have a few health issues that partially limit what exercises I can safely and comfortably perform. Fortunately, Madeline is patient and understanding when I cannot perform an exercise. In such cases, she always knows a way to help me adapt, whether by helping me refine my technique or showing me a different exercise that works the same muscles. Through our training, Madeline has helped me improve my fitness and my confidence, and I look forward to many more sessions with her.
