Personal Training

My mission is to make your body and mind work as one; you have the power to take control of your fitness; my goal is to guide you to that destination.  I help individuals and groups of all aspirations and ability levels.  I am the way to a new you – take control of your metaphysical state and start training today. It is not just about training, but pursuing your goals and transitioning to a lifestyle of health and wellness.  My mission is to take the body on a journey that is mapped out by the client, and we can help you on that path – the path to a lifestyle of health and wellness.  Additionally, I have the skills not just to help with the transition to health and wellness through nutrition and life-coaching, but also to take athletes who want to train and compete at a higher level – such as professional strength and conditioning, speed and agility training, bodybuilding and physique training, and athletic conditioning techniques to help all types and levels of athletes and individuals. I will put your body and mind through challenges and trials, but we will be there with you all the way during the transformation and journey. The results and tremendous growth you see in the end will let you know all the hard work was worth it. Sign up now, and start training!

Madeline Stanek

I am originally from Australia and have been living in the states for about 6 years. If you know anything about Australians you’ll know we love our sports! which is mainly how I initially got involved in this Lifestyle. I have been consistently involved in fitness now for 12 years. Competitive swimming throughout high school and university as well as soccer really set a great foundation for my personal fitness and discipline. I became a certified fitness trainer this year through the International Sports Sciences Association, and am currently working on my certification in fitness nutrition.

What I love most about fitness is that it is one of the very few things in life that you can control. You definitely get what you put into this lifestyle but that is the beauty of it. You are in control of your journey and subsequently your quality of life and wellbeing.

Additionally, I have skills In bodybuilding and extensive knowledge in building core strength and Aerobics.
Fitness can be challenging at times but it is so rewarding, I’ve never known anyone to regret a workout, you usually only regret the one you didn’t do. I will help you build your confidence and accept your body and abilities at every stage in your journey with life coaching and motivation. I can confidently say that if you have the right mindset you can conquer each and every goal you set out for yourself.

Whether you’re a novice in the gym or you’re an athlete looking for some fresh ideas to spice up your workout, I am confident that I will be able to work with you to achieve the results you want.
I have an almost two-year-old and one on the way, so trust me when I say, I definitely know what its like to feel the pressure of juggling work, family and the gym. You are not alone on this journey and if you let me, I can show you how to reach your potential and be the best version of yourself possible!
If you see me in the gym, please come and say hi, and let’s get started!
