What Do People Think of the MelioGuide Program?
Since purchasing Margaret's program, I am impressed with everything offered on the website and with her program! I have been practicing Pilates for over two years and have realized improvement in overall core strength BUT when doing the Warm up Exercises with Margaret’s videos today another level of challenge appeared. In following along with several of the exercises I really feel like my body is getting a great workout! Thank you so much for providing the educational material that is presented in all areas of the website.

I'm on week 7 of the MelioGuide program and still loving the exercises! For seven years I had a personal trainer two to three times a week and I feel that I'm making much better progress with your program than with the gym trainer. Thank you! Have a great day.

I am so happy I found your program. Your suggestions, especially for daily actvities, have been so useful and beneficial.
One day at a time I am trying to improve my life through your suggestions.

I am delighted with your program. I have great confidence in you and appreciate things being laid out so carefully and systematically.

Thanks very much for setting me up with the programme. I’m a high risk case because I’ve had my first fracture in the spine even though I’ve just turned 50 and class myself as very fit.
It’s been very hard having to give up running because I really enjoy it. However, I have to say that I have totally enjoyed the challenge of starting a new programme and it’s good to start with the basics because I’m finding that I’m constantly correcting my posture and I am now (through the programme) concentrating much more on my core which is something that I previously wasn’t doing. I’ve also adjusted my cardio programme accordingly.
It’s good to see that there is so many other avenues to increase fitness without just relying on the straight forward equipment at the gym. I also find that I can transfer a lot of exercises from the book into the gym as well as doing them at home.
I’m so grateful to have found this programme – thank you!
