To the surprise of many, I did not grow up as an athlete. I wouldn’t have even considered myself to be an “active” kid. As the child of a single mother, extra curricular activities were never a priority. But at the age of 24, I found myself living in San Diego, where EVERYONE was active. So when in Rome, right? I joined an outdoor bootcamp and started running, next thing I knew I was running half marathons every weekend and several full marathons a year. I eventually dabbled in every adventure sport I could, from sea kayaking around Catalina Island, sailing retired America Cup boats, 72-hour adventure racing across Baja Calif., surfing in Del Mar, open water swimming in La Jolla Cove, summiting 14’ers, alpine mountaineering and rock climbing in Joshua Tree to bike packing across Death Valley and the Mojave.
Often I’d convince my non-active friends to join me in these adventures. In the process, I had discovered my passion for helping other people find fun ways to incorporate exercise into their daily lives. In 2009, I left California and my job in advertising to attend Florida Atlantic University, where I earned a B.S.E. in Exercise Science and Health Promotion.
I’ve spent the last 10 years working as a personal trainer, as well as triathlon, cycling and running coach. My passion is helping clients move more, get stronger and feel GOOD, while having fun in the process.

Sharla started her fitness journey more than 35 years ago. Gaining weight in college was the catalyst she needed for a healthy change in her life. Educating herself on diet and nutrition eventually lead to competing in aerobic competitions.
This direction sparked her passion to help motivate others looking for change in their own healthy journey. Teaching large classes for students at Adelphi University and personal training and group fitness at numerous gyms got her noticed. She would then be hired by the U.S Merchant Marine Academy in NY to train the cadets.
Sharla holds several nationally accredited group and personal training certifications. In the past few years, with her fondness to help seniors, Sharla became a Certified Senior Fitness Specialist.
Her motivation is empowering her clients to live a healthy lifestyle and to assist others as they explore their fitness potential. This in and of itself has made her an asset in the fitness community and Feel Good Fitness!
A native of Indianapolis, IN, Margot grew up in an active family. During elementary through high school, Margot was an avid tennis player, rode horses and went to the gym regularly.
After graduating from college in 1998, Margot found herself in a precarious position; not working out or active in sports. So she hired a personal trainer and was instantly hooked. Shortly after, she decided to pursue a career in fitness, which eventually led her to create a fitness and wellness retreat business. Margot moved to Florida in 2007 and now resides in Boynton Beach. A lover of all things ocean, she enjoys walking on the beach daily with her dog, paddle boarding and just enjoying the relaxing ocean environment. She also loves golf and being active outdoors as much as possible.
Margot is also a certified nutrition and health coach through Precision Nutrition as well as an ACE certified personal trainer.
“I love pushing my clients to achieve their goals – even the ones they never thought possible.” — Margot
