Prioritize your body. Prioritize yourself.

Between commitments to family and home, career, causes and events, travel and friends, prioritizing oneself is hard. As a working mom of two toddlers I know it, I live it.

Whether you are looking to jumpstart your fitness after some time away, are ready to push yourself to the next performance level or are recovering from an injury or surgery, a personal trainer can help you achieve your goals with guidance and programming for your body.

When you trust me with your time and your body, my commitment in return is to give you the most effective, fun and appropriate workout for you.

It’s time to prioritize yourself: make your workout the appointment in your calendar you don’t miss.

Maxine is motivating and professional. She was able to personalize a plan that worked for me, my schedule and my body. Everyone needs to get fit and she’s a great person to help anyone achieve their goals.


I joined Maxine’s post natal fitness class about 4 months ago. My son and I have always felt very welcome and at ease in her studio. Not surprising as Max is a mom herself and sympathizes with emergency diaper changes, feeds and noisy babies. Her workouts are very creative, well balanced, and appropriately challenging. I really appreciate her attention to detail and focus on technique. Max is enthusiastic, funny and genuinely interested in helping her clients succeed. I truly enjoy and look forward to my weekly training sessions. Thank you Max!

she is exactly what I need...Maxine is always positive, supportive, energetic, happy, fun, straight-up-yes-you-can-no-messin-around-this-is-how-we-kick-butt...! Since training with her, I have been more motivated and i've learned so much about what my body is capable of and what i need to do to stay healthy, get stronger and faster at running (& more) AND about staying focussed, determined, and confident. big thank you to Maxine!

I started training with Max 3 months ago and after just a couple of weeks I felt the difference in my strength and my energy levels. Her classes and fun and challenging every single time and it makes working out a fun activity instead of a burden. Thank you Max for always pushing me to do better.
