"When I met Maddy I wanted to lose a few extra pounds and I thought the solution would be to run more and train harder in the gym, both of which I do not particularly enjoy. But instead, she helped me make a few small improvements to my diet & lifestyle that really had an impact on my weight. At the same time, she introduced me to Pilates which was much softer than any other form of training I had done before yet made a real impact on the way I look and feel. She also encouraged me to find time for a sport I enjoy and got a physio to sort out my tennis elbow so I could go back to playing tennis. I liked working with Maddy because I feel like she customized something that truly works for me, and that doesn´t exclude the things I truly enjoy, like a good glass of wine. I never felt like I was on a diet and I still follow her recommendations to this day because they truly make me feel good. I am still steadily losing weight yet I no longer force myself to do training I don´t enjoy. So far I´ve lost 3kgs and I don´t even feel like I´ve been trying.”
"I´m so thankful to Maddy for her help in getting me back into shape after my second pregnancy. She´s not only a great Pilates teacher & Health Coach but she´s a nice, cool, funny and positive person to work with too. After my pregnancy I thought I would have to put myself through gruesome workouts to get my body back but I needed to start slow as I had a C section so I decided to give Pilates a try. I thought it would be a good way of easing myself back into exercise before doing something more hardcore but I didn´t really expect it to deliver any results, but it did! I´m still blown away by the efficiency of it. After only a few sessions I could already see and feel the results in my body. Even though it´s a very gentle form of exercise, I feel stronger after each session and I´m grateful I discovered this method as it feels so much better on my body than the hardcore workouts I have been used to in the past. I´ve lost most of the weight I gained during the pregnancy and my muscle tone is back and I feel amazing. I´ve been mindful of my diet and I´ve been regular in my Pilates practice but I still never thought it would be this easy."

"I´ve been trying to lose weight for a few years now and I´ve done juice fasts, detoxes and all sorts of diets that never really worked. They worked for a while but as soon as I would stop I would go back to my old eating habits and the weight would creep back on. What I like about Maddy´s approach is that she´s very positive and encourages me to experiment with different foods to work out what truly makes me feel good, and what doesn´t! I´ve progressively started making small changes to the way I eat & think about food and the weight has started dropping. I don´t feel as though I´ve been on a diet. I just feel like I´ve been more mindful of what I´ve been eating and it seems to have had an effect on my hunger which has definitely reduced. I´ve also paid more attention to things such as getting enough sleep, stressing less & keeping hydrated. I never thought such small changes could have such a big impact on my weight and the way I feel but they´re definitely worth paying attention to! I feel like I´m more in charge of my wellbeing and my mind feels more alert. I finally know what works best for me and I feel like sticking with it because it makes me feel good! I´m grateful to Maddy for being such a cheerleader for my health & happiness. I feel like the changes I am making now will be beneficial to me for the rest of my life."
