MEG YVONNE

NASM, CPR, & Nutrition Certified

I was born and raised in the cold but beautiful state of Maine. Thanks to hibernating in the gym while the long winters passed, I discovered my passion for fitness. I have expertise in many different training modalities, from CrossFit, to running, and have finally landed on strength training, specifically Powerlifting. In 2016, I began working as an independent personal trainer and have not looked back. I have trained all over the US and even in Spain! I’ve been blessed to have helped so many wonderful clients, and I can’t wait to continue the journey.

I pride myself in a science based and structured approach to training. Something that fits into your life, is enjoyable, and has long-term, sustainable results. 

You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great” - Zig Ziglar
