As a trainer since 2006 Mara has delighted in the success of the physical accomplishments in those who she's been fortunate enough to call her clients.

Fitness wasn't always a natural fit for Mara. Truth be told, there was a time when she did everything in her power to avoid serious exercise. Eventually she found her passion for fitness through a small fitness facility and wonderful trainers. The natural next step for Mara was to open Push Performance, her gym in Victoria, BC. Mara's enthusiasm and knowledge created a thriving business. Upon moving to Calgary eight years later she became a sought-after trainer working independently contracting through a highly-respected facility. Mara has since expanded her services to include virtual and when possible in-person training.

All of Mara's programs are tailored to provide safe and effective training to accommodate each client's individual needs, abilities and fitness levels. Mara has successfully trained clients who have experienced.

"Training with Mara was the best decision I've ever made for my health/fitness. She has pushed me beyond what I thought were my limits, while always being so accommodating. Now I don't even think twice about the fact that all of our training is virtual! I love the convenience of working out at home while still having the motivation and guidance from a personal trainer. Thank you, Mara!"

"After meeting and working out via Zoom with Mara, I don’t think I’ll go back to the “traditional” personal trainer dynamic. Working out online with Mara is awesome! I get to work out in the comfort of my home which cuts at least an hour of commute time and I don’t need to worry about others watching me. It’s always a great workout and I’ve really noticed a difference in my strength and fitness level."

- TK

"Since I have continued training sessions with Mara from the gym to Zoom, I can’t tell you how great it has made me feel. With a small amount of equipment I have been able to feel stronger than I have in months. And it’s really good for my mind. I can’t believe how comfortable it is! It feels like being together. It is a great substitute for the real thing, even better somehow! I highly recommend people try it!"

"Mara’s ability to listen and customize a realistic approach ensuring exercises are done in a safe and doable manner allowed me to train with her right up to 38 weeks pregnant. While there are many personal trainers “out there” few have Mara’s sensitivity and dedication to their clients. Mara is enthusiastic, motivating and knowledgeable, spending an hour with her is like spending an hour with a good friend!"

- AF

"She guides the trainee through the basics, ensuring proper form and focus, followed by workout sets that mold your core and mindset, preparing you for your next challenge. Her sessions are catered towards your individual goals, and before you know it, you’re asking for more. I highly recommend Mara to anyone looking for a Personal trainer, you won’t regret it."
