“I went to Morgyn a few months ago. I have been looking for someone to get me back on track after a decadent summer, and Morgyn is that person. She is very present and “in tune” with me and my needs each session, and her work continues after each visit with a follow up “homework” assignment. This is what I really love, because it motivates me, gives me structure and holds me accountable. Morgyn also takes the time before, during and after each session to check in with how I’m feeling and answer any questions.
In a nutshell, go to Morgyn for any of your bodywork needs- you will not be disappointed and will positively be inspired.”

What are the benefits of Personal Training?
PERSONAL TRAINING is personalized fitness training based on your specific goals, needs, and background. You get to know and trust your trainer; you have someone “on your side” to push you and to whom you are accountable. Working individually allows for greater attention to the details that matter most to your progress.
I invite you to meet with me for a FREE consultation to find out more. If you decide to train with me, we schedule a thorough 90 minute Assessment which allows me to get a sense of your lifestyle habits and screen your movement patterns to pinpoint areas of strength as well as areas in need of improvement. From this initial session, you will come away with at least one skill and homework which will immediately help you. After our meetings, I will create a customized workout plan which addresses your goals, needs, and concerns.
You also have the option of therapeutic massage and Thai yoga massage to complement your training!
What do you offer as a personal trainer that is unique?
I specialize with women and mothers with a strong focus on postpartum recovery (no matter how many years after birth), including women over 45.
I am a certified personal trainer (NASM), Prenatal & Postnatal Corrective Exercise Specialist (Fit For Birth), and bellydance therapist. With this eclectic background, I offer a strong focus on building core and pelvic floor strength, hip mobility, effective breathing, posture, coordination and flexibility. I combine functional fitness training, corrective exercise, and dance movement along with therapeutic stretching to create workouts that help you feel a positive connection to your body and yourself. Through a combination of “healing movement”, breath, nourishing foods, plenty of water, and the cultivation of a positive mindset, fitness is extremely powerful medicine.
Emphasis is on a safe workout, proper form, and manageable progress/improvements that you will maintain for the long-term!
What is Corrective Exercise?
CORRECTIVE EXERCISE has been called “a blend of personal fitness training with physical therapy. Corrective Exercise teaches you how to move with the correct muscles, enabling fluid joint movement and the potential avoidance of nearly any joint or muscle pain.”
(James Goodlatte, founder of Fit For Birth)
This is “HEALING MOVEMENT”. We incorporate corrective exercise and bellydance movements to help align, open, strengthen, and decrease pain, discomfort, and “stuckness” in the spine, hips, belly, and breath. Learn proper movement that both treats and prevents injury. Benefits include an increase in stamina, strength, balance, coordination, flexibility, agility, freedom of movement, confidence and healthy weight loss/gain/maintenance.

Can I get personal training with a partner?
Yes! I offer personal training for 1-2 people. Working in a “team” of two can further motivate and inspire you. It also costs less per person. I offer private training for women including moms-to-be and moms alike.
Take care of yourself and your baby with support for a fit and healthy pregnancy through PRENATAL PERSONAL TRAINING.
