She rode horses when younger and then became an avid runner, like a lot of people, injuries put an end to that activity.

She loved the combination of full body workouts combined with strong encouragement and challenges. It became a passion from day one and has never waned. Madeleine believes Studio 6 Fitness is suitable for all ages and fitness levels and hopes to encourage clients to build on challenges one day at a time, and for them to discover with excitement how much they have achieved.

Tom Edgar

Tom’s been teaching software for over 20 years. After decades of sitting behind a computer screen with zero physical activity, Tom had his fitness awakening in 2014. As a late bloomer, once he started moving, he quickly dropped 40 pounds and has been an avid fitness enthusiast ever since. With long walks, daily cardio, and weights, he transformed himself in his 50s! Yoga turned out to be something Tom excelled at and within a year, found himself being asked to be a substitute instructor. Helping fellow yogis through tough routines and hit the poses with correct form, he found helping students reach physical goals as rewarding as communicating tough ideas to students in the classroom. In 2016, Tom discovered the Megaformer™ and was immediately addicted. Yoga got pushed way back so there was more time to focus on the Megaformer and the Lagree method. He could not be more enthusiastic about becoming a Studio 6 Instructor!

When Tom isn't coaching on the Megaformer, he can be found taking as many Studio 6 Megaformer classes as he can fit into his schedule.

Katelyn Wilson

Katelyn became addicted with the full body and low impact workout, that hits every muscle in 50 mins, and gives her the muscle tone/definition she loves.  After years of training in competitive gymnastics  at WOGA (with Nastia Liukin and Carly Patterson), competing on the world champion cheer athletics team, high school varsity cheer team, nationals, and also "all American" in cheerleading, it was difficult for Katelyn to find any workout she could stick to until she discovered the megaformer.  In 2015, Katelyn received her Lagree Certification and became a trainer at Studio 6 Fitness
