Specializing in HIIT training, yoga instruction, cardio kickboxing and strength training, I bring a form and safety focused mindset to every client I train. I push my clients to set goals. We can work together through an individualized program meant to met these specific goals. Modifying and adjusting as we go, I like to keep workouts excting so goals become more attainable.
With the education and experience to back it up, I hope to bring the best out of every person I meet.

I love teaching. I LOVE giving people the best hour of thier day. Finding yoga and fitness changed my life and I hope to be able to help others find that same path. I use effective and fun workouts or yoga sequencing, optional tracking and accountability and of course some great music along the way to help my clients find what inspires and moves them. By working with other health and wellness professionals in the area I can offer the connections to nutritionists, naturopathic wellness and other therapies to complement your training with me and Fit Flow Wellness.
Margie is an amazing trainer. She makes you feel 100 percent comfortable. I am stronger than I thought I was because Margie guides you perfectly through each move and won’t let you give up on yourself. Not only do I feel physically stronger I now realize I can do a lot more than I thought I could. She listens to any area you want help with and gives you easy instructions. I have absolutely loved training with her.
I always offer a free consultation to see if a prospective client and I are a good match! I like to meet with new clients and chat about their past and present fitness routines, restrictions or injuries and their goals moving forward. If it's a good match we'll schedule the first session!
In our first session I run some basic testing and evaluations. In this stage I'll look at mobility, range of motion, body awareness, cardio abilities and restrictions and put the client through a short workout to evaluate strength focused movements. We then come up with a plan and schedule to get them started on their fitness path.
I am a certified personal trainer through NCCPT, a Group Fitness instructor through AFAA and a 200 hr Registered Yoga teacher through the Yoga Alliance.
My pricing depends on the training facility used ( I have access to 2 in South Jersey and one in Philadelphia, as well as a private studio in my home) the length of session, and the amount of sessions purchased. My rates are very competive with other area professionals and I discount my session fee for packages.
I currently offer sessions as follows:
Single sessions (most expensive option)
5 pack (6 week expiration)
10 pack (3 month Expiration
20 pack (6 month expiration AND Cheapest option per session)
In addition, I offer virtual training. I send clients video programming for them to do at home (using minimal to no equipment) or at the facility of their choice. This is offered on it's own OR as an option for clients when traveling.
I ALSO offer a discount for couples or partner workouts! Sometimes having a workout buddy is a GREAT way to motivate you! Ask me about my partner pricing!!
I started teaching kickboxing through an international kickboxing chain. I then started to work behind the scenes managing 2 high end Crossfit and HIIT gyms in Manhattan. After realizing that my place is on the HIIT floor instead of behind a desk, I began shadowing teachers and then jumped into teaching classes and private clients full-time. After teaching in multiple spaces in NYC I started to commute between Brooklyn and Philadelphia to teach HIIT and Yoga in Graduate Hospital (I still coach there!). I am currently a performer at LifeTime Fitness in Mt Laurel and a coach at OpenBox Athletics in Philadelphia.
I have worked with students of all ages and abilities in both group and individual formats. As a Crossfit Kids coach I worked with kids from age 5-15 in functional movement and sports agility training. From chair yoga for seniors to high level HIIT training, my individualized approach and education make me able to cater training sessions to specific clients regardless of age.
I moved!! I relocated back to South Jersey after 5 years in New York City. A BIG step for me, I'm loving being back home. NYC was a great place to hone my craft and really immerse myself in fitness culture. I hope to bring the energy of NYC and things I've learned to the more down-to-earth community of the Philadelphia and South Jersey area.
Give it a shot! Nothing can change or happen if you don't take the fist step. Whoever you hire, make sure you ask questions. Learn about their education, their experience, ask for references. There are plenty of trainers out there that don't give their schedule. Look for someone who shows you thier heart and who you feel like you connect with. A personal trainer is more than just someone to make you exercise, they are a coach and an ally in your road to good health and fitness. Also... remember that paying a trainer is in investment in yourself and your future, not a frivolous purchase.
FIRST AND FOREMOST... am I physically able to begin a workout program? (If you have injuries have you been cleared by a Dr or Physical Therapist?)
What are my long term goals?
What are my Short term goals?
What level of commitment am I truly willing to give to my fitness?
Is my schedule flexible or do I want a set day and time every week?
