What We've Achieved
Nutrition Seminar for Edge TRIATHLON Athletes at Liberty Niagara
Margaret shared some key knowledge on training and race day fuelling in April. Edge athletes learned about nutrition as a key component to training. The focus was on consistency and quality of nutritional intake, including the importance of key macros, micros and phytonutrients to their performance and recovery.
Before getting hooked up with Margaret I was not doing well. I’ve always been extremely active but have never taken nutrition seriously, and as I have aged that has become more and more of an issue as I struggle to feel comfortable in my shrinking clothes and self-loathing brain.
After a few months of working with Margaret though, EVERYTHING is different. And it was SO. EASY. She assessed my situation with patience and care and then proceeded to tweak my habits SO slowly - it was honestly annoying at first - that I didn’t really have to think about it. I continued to gain weight at the beginning, (Christmas. Ugh.) but then, suddenly, IT ALL STARTED FALLING OFF.
I have lost over 23lbs so far in the last 2 months. And it has been EASY to lose; the first 6 I didn’t even NOTICE. For the first time ever I am not FOCUSED on dieting, feeling starved as I go about my day. I have the energy and strength I NEED for my insane workouts. And my pants are falling off hahaha!!
THANK YOU Margaret! I cannot ever remember feeling more empowered or more in control of my body than I do right now! EVERYONE should work with you!! xoxo

Pearl Gloves Charity Boxing Event 2018
Margaret had the pleasure of working with Tim ‘The Titan” Warden in preparation for his fight at this year’s Pearl Gloves charity boxing event in aid of MS.
Tim achieved significant weight loss and gained fantastic skills, adopting a more balanced diet but one that also supported his training and epic performance come fight night.
