Mary Tedesco

Personal trainer and fitness instructor

Home: Cross River, NY

Bio: 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 began waking early in the morning to work out, and she has never looked back.

Mary is now the owner of Body Fit Personal Training in Cross River, New York and personal trainer to the infamous Martha Stewart. She is an AFAA-certified personal trainer and an NASM candidate with additional certifications in yoga and Pilates. In her 15 years promoting health & fitness Mary has helped hundreds of people strive for optimal wellness. Mary has obtained a loyal following with her regular appearances on the "Martha Stewart Show" and on Martha's Sirius/XM satellite radio shows.

When Mary is not training or doing television, radio or magazine work she likes coaching charity teams and climbing mountains for the Multiple Myeloma Research Fund, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and the Children's Cancer Fun.

My philosophy: Shake things up! I want my clients to be invigorated every time they work out with me. I like to mix weight training, yoga and Pilates, and intervals on cardio equipment. I also get people to think outside the box: How are they helping themselves live a happier and healthier life? How are they helping their kids? Their husband or wife or parents? Overall wellness includes eating clean and exercising and we need to be doing this every single day.
