In Margot's more than 20 years of teaching fitness to participants of all ages and abilities, she has always offered a unique exercise experience. Working exclusively with the older adult population in recent years she founded Swingin’ Fitness, a dance inspired chair fitness program. Not only as an instructor, but as percussionist and singer in the duo Fit as a Fiddle Canada, Margot truly understands the power of music and knows how to bring it to life with easy-to-follow choreography.
Growing up in a home environment where theatre, dance and music were integrated into daily family life, Margot's artistic spirit is at the heart and soul of all her fitness and musical programs. Her years of study at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston and her Diploma in Music Industry Arts from Fanshawe College in London, Ontario gave her a solid educational start to her musical career.
Producing various artists' projects, including Juno award winner Oliver Jones’ first album, launched her into the world of television as a lyricist. In 2009, her CD “Around The House with Maggie G.” garnered her a nomination for a Canadian Folk Music Association Album of the Year. Margot delights in choosing music that resonates with her fitness participants, making each and every class a joyful, memorable experience
