A Native of New York, Mary Tedesco began her fitness career in Manhattan Beach, California. At the time she was overweight and not very athletic. Then she met her now husband, Michael, a triathlete who introduced her to weight training.
They would wake early in the morning to workout and she has never looked back. “I was just amazed at the way my body changed with weight training and long bike rides along the beach,” she says. “On the outside, physically, I looked so much better, but also on the inside I felt like an entirely different person...so much happier and relaxed...so much more confident and self assured. I felt EMPOWERED."
So Mary decided to help EMPOWER others with her never ending energy and positive, fun outlook on life! She is now the owner of Body Fit Personal Training in Cross River, NY and MaryTedescoFitness.com and is the infamous Martha Stewart's personal trainer.
She is an AFAA certified personal trainer and an NASM candidate with additional certifications in yoga and pilates.

Her fitness philosophy includes a combination of weight training, yoga, pilates and aerobics to whip people into shape. Mary has obtained a loyal following with her regular appearances on The Martha Stewart Show, exercising with Martha.
