I have been to several different yoga teachers over the last few years and it is always nice to find a class you really enjoy. I like Marcie’s classes because she takes the time to explain exactly how to get into each pose properly, it’s the little adjustments that make all the difference and I feel that my yoga is definitely improving as a result. The classes are small and friendly, so there is plenty of time for Marcie to help each person individually. Looking forward to next term!

Being a runner, I heard a lot about the benefits of Yoga offering strength in feet, lower legs, core etc from other runners and cyclists.
I joined Marcie’s Yoga class since August, 2019. Every class is very well structured and offers so much techniques/ideas on how to improve core muscles.
Initially, it was very daunting, maybe a little intimidated about being the only person who can’t touch his toes in a room full of ‘Yougi’ ( I thought !!). I, then soon realized that I am not the only person who can’t !!
Marcie taught me that “Focus on myself, not what the person on the mat next to me can do”. I thoroughly enjoy my weekly yoga lessons as each lesson concentrates on different sets of muscles such as balance and stability, hamstrings, quads, calves, core, upper body, lower back etc.
The actual class size consists of 5 or 6 students in a very ambient, calm and relaxing environment. The lesson is very individually targeted so Marcie tells us what I am doing right and what I am doing wrong and how can I mitigate each wrong doing. If I can’t do something, she always offers some other alternatives for each task.
Finally, ~Marcie shows true authenticity in her personality; she has energy and a true passion for her teaching, wanting to educate and inspire students.
I am looking forward to come back for 2020.

I’ve really enjoyed Pilates with Marcie. The combination of Pilates and improved eating I have lost almost 3 stone, plus dropped 2 dress sizes! My muscles are more toned too and it’s really helped with my back issues and fibromyalgia. 10/10!

Hi Marcie. I will be coming to term 2 of Pilates. I feel that the Pilates is helping my neck condition. I’m not getting the numbness in my toes and fingers as much as I did before joining Pilates as recommended by my neurologist. I have better movement in my neck also and definitely not as stiff as it was. Thank you 😊

I’ve been going to Pilates for about 2 months, I really feel the difference already. I had bad shoulders and neck pain along with not great posture having been slumped over a desk for years. With MarcieFitness it doesn’t matter what level of fitness or stage you’re at, the classes are small so Marcie can give you the help and support as an individual (In larger classes, you often don’t get that which can lead to doing the moves wrong which can be damaging.) I totally recommend MarcieFitness. 🙌

Hi Marcie, thank you for a great introduction to Pilates. In my mind I played footy with more movement and in fact I didn’t suffer from usual muscle fatigue in the morning. Pity about having to miss next week, but see you all the following week. The challenge for me is to coordinate my breathing while concentrating on everything else. Thanks again

Marcie is inspirational because by watching her and listening to her instructions, it has been possible for me to regain a flatter stomach!! This I thought was forever lost to me! Now I’m working on my upper body to try to prevent the slouch and attempt a better standing posture. ‘Menopause schmenopause’…!

Marcie’s approach was just what I needed – a great mix of understanding, re-educating and empowering me to succeed. We discussed realistic goals that would stretch me yet remained achievable. I work so much harder with Marcie encouraging me than I would in the gym and in a much more structured and safe way. Marcie also gives great advice on diet (by which I mean what I eat – not what I restrict). I am so pleased with the results so far and look forward to seeing what our efforts can achieve moving forward!

I started working with Marcie almost a year ago as now that I am in my 50’s I realised that I needed to work on my fitness and reduce my blood pressure. I have never enjoyed going to the gym and didn’t even use the gym equipment that I have at home.
The whole process started with Marcie looking at my diet and general well being and then we moved onto improving my general fitness with weekly sessions and ‘homework’ in between. Each session is different and varied, taking place in Marcie’s well equipped gym.
The net effect is that I feel fitter and stronger than I ever have, together with the added benefit of a reduction in my blood pressure. Marcie is always positive and motivational, which in my case is extremely important to keep me coming back for more sessions!
Neil – Personal Training
I thoroughly enjoyed the personal training I had with Marcie, my strength improved massively by gaining 1.3kg in muscle, losing 1.8kg of body fat and lowering my metabolic age by 5 years all in 3 weeks! Having the mix of aerobic and strength training really kept me motivated, enabling me to try out lots of new exercises that I hadn’t even heard of whilst also using a variety of equipment. I always felt safe in the environment I was training in. Every session I had I was being pushed to my absolute max whilst also enjoying the thorough workout my body was getting so there was an element of fun within the sessions. Marcie also gave me some advice on a reoccurring knee pain I was getting and how to avoid it in the future! Marcie has exceptional knowledge in the different muscle groups and specific exercises for each that I still use today in my own workout routines! I would highly recommend Marcie to anyone of any age, gender or fitness level!

Marcie is a great Pilates teacher. She works us hard with clear and precise instructions that really help to focus and get the most benefit from the exercises. For me this is the best health and fitness investment of my week. I have great core strength, posture and mobility as a result of regular attendance. Marcie keeps classes small so you get a lot of individual attention. Each week is different and Marcie creates a lovely atmosphere, reminding us all that we are individuals with different abilities. She gives us varying levels of difficulty, so you can make the workout as tough as you like whilst it still feels like a nurturing, safe space. Fiona – Pilates
