About this pro

I have been practicing Boxing for about 4 years now. I started my Boxing career in Brooklyn, NY when I moved there. I've come back to the Seattle area earlier this year. I began Boxing due to an incident that happened to me at 16; I was robbed by a stranger on my way to a bus stop at night. The very next day I took up self-defense courses and have stayed passionate with this craft since then. I currently teach kids (4+), teenagers, adults and seniors. Boxing is my passion and I love how it increased my self confidence, my mental and physical strength, and my amibtion is at an all time high. There are no limits--the only limit is the one you set. I love pushing people outside of their comfort zone, teaching and perfecting form and technique, increasing cardio conditioning and improving endurance/strength. 

I am a 21 year old female instructor, I love what I do and it shows. I want to empower other young women, survivors of abuse, people who want to get fit in general and improve their overall health and well being.

    Mary is great. I had 12 sessions with her, and what I can say is that she works very hard to find exercises, put them together, and organize it to meet all needs of her clients. I was a gymnast who ended up with a serious back injury, so she was making sure that I still can get a full body workout without engaging my back a lot. Every session is completely different and designed for you, based on what you want. Also, Mary gives you so much motivation. I think some people call her workouts - a "Mad Mary Workout".. well now I know why Even though all sessions were about an hour, I was dead after them.

    Mary's trainings are very intense and unique! If you want to have a trainer who is highly motivating, inspirational, and makes you feel empowered, I highly reccommend working with her. She has a wonderful personality and is very knowledgeable in her field of work, she is determined to push you, and you will also have a ton of fun working out with her. During our trainings, she always challenges me to perform my best, she always puts a unique twists and makes the workouts fun and worthwhile! She has become a huge inspiration to me a boxer! I know for a fact that the more you train with her, you WILL SEE RESULTS!

    Mary is amazing! She’s super nice and fun to be around, and she is the best trainer I’ve ever had! She takes the time to know what you want to work on, designs each workout around it and is an EXPERT at targeting specific areas! Trust me on that! I also appreciate her patience! I’m a spaz, and since working with Mary on my strength I feel way more balanced and in control. I would recommend her to anyone. I think especially any females that want to learn to defend themselves and get super strong at the same time would be lucky to have Mary coach them!

    Mary has been working with my daughter, who is only six, and my husband and I have been so excited by the work they do. Mary makes all her lessons fun and age appropriate while still challenging and helping my daughter learn great skills. Mary has helped her get stronger, more coordinated and more fit in general, while also giving my daughter a love of doing those things. She does a great job making you feel successful, having you work hard and also takes time to listen and know you as a person. She is a great athlete, boxer and wonderful role model. She is also flexible with her schedule and location, generous and thoughtful, and I can’t say enough about her as a person and a trainer.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What is your "why"? Why is it important for you to get into a sport that involves taking a punch to the face and giving one back? Why is it important for you to get healthy? Why do you want to pursue this. There's gotta be a motivating factor before getting into a sport like this.
