Maggy developed a love for fitness as a teenager, after struggling with a weight problem for most of her childhood. As a teenager she began competing as a long distance runner. Along with running she began taking fitness classes to help improve her fitness.

After teaching all types of fitness classes in Orange County she also was hired to be a fitness coordinator/manager at a very large gym in Costa Mesa. It was a natural for her to also fall in love with Pilates because it’s exercise that everyone can do for the rest of their lives. Maggy enjoys getting to know her clients, developing a personal relationship with them and helping them fall in love with fitness and Pilates. She is Stott Certified on all of the Pilates equipment, is PMA Certified, TRX trained, Trigger point trained, Stott Injuries and Special Populations trained, and certified with AFFA.

My neurosurgeon first recommended Pilates to me after I had cervical surgery on my spinal column,C-3 thru C-7. My spinal cord had no protective bone at this area and I was becoming paralyzed. The surgeon added a shiny new four inch Titanium plate to my spine, and sent me to Pilates... LOVED PILATES! I finally made the change in my career by attending the Pure Pilates Certification Program here in Laguna Niguel, where I have lived with my family for 20 years. My favorite instructor/teacher of the certification program stated I had a real passion for Pilates, and I do; it's been a lifesaver/game changer for me! I want to share the joy and freedom Pilates has provided for me with everyone!
