Trainers At This Studio
As a three-sport athlete in high school playing soccer, basketball and lacrosse, Francesca grew up incredibly passionate about fitness. Her competitive drive and love for health and wellness grew stronger over the course of her collegiate career. Once she got to Penn State she realized it wasn’t just a hobby, it would be her future career. Her first step was a degree from Penn State in Kinesiology, specializing in Exercise Science.
During her time in college, Francesca also played collegiate basketball, taught group fitness classes, and received an ACSM Personal Trainer Certification. She had studied slow-motion training in biomechanics courses and also used a form of slow-motion training when she was rehabbing her torn ACL.
With a Personal Trainer certification in-hand and a relationship with slow-motion strength training, Francesca was ecstatic when she was referred to The Perfect Workout by a family friend. After learning more about the company and its core values, she knew The Perfect Workout would be an amazing company to continue her career with. Francesca began her certification at The Perfect Workout and joined the Jenkintown team in August of 2016.
Since then, Francesca has been helping clients change their bodies and the quality of their lives. One of Francesca’s clients, Maxine, suffered from Lyme disease which seriously affected the right side of her body. When she first came to The Perfect Workout, she could barely walk up the steps. “Every month she tells me how much better she feels with the strength she has gained.” She’s gone from not being able to walk up the stairs to being able to carry her 9-month old granddaughter, a bag on her back, and another bag in her other arm up 4 floors without stopping! “Stories like these are the reason we do what we do.”
Francesca’s personal health and fitness has improved dramatically as well. After tearing her ACL in high school, she went to physical therapy for 2 years to build back strength and it never seemed to get any stronger. Since implementing slow-motion strength training years ago, Francesca’s leg strength has improved tremendously and her knee pain has subsided.
In January 2017 Francesca got the opportunity to become Facility Manager of the Ardmore studio and it’s been one of the best changes in her life. “There is no other place I would rather be. I am excited and motivated to walk into work every day, and that is something I never want to give up.” As a Facility Manager, Francesca is committed to making sure her trainers are getting the coaching and guidance they need to be the best possible trainers they can be.
“My goal is to inspire my trainers to work as hard as they can for themselves and our clients, and I do that by maintaining a positive culture that helps motivate our trainers.” Francesca believes that The Perfect Workout’s culture pushes its trainers and clients to be the best they can be and that is why The Perfect Workout is a leader in the strength training industry.
Along with her love for fitness Francesca enjoys going to the Jersey Shore, hiking, traveling, cooking, spending time with her Fiancée and taking their 6lb Yorkie, Diesel, for walks. “I am super competitive and a complete sports enthusiast. I love every Philadelphia sports team but mainly those EAGLES!”
Francesca currently leads the largest studio in the Philadelphia area, and she has plans to keep growing. “I want to completely dedicate myself to fitness and health and be able to help as many people as possible achieve their goals and maintain them.”
Before Manny Amine could speak English, he was well versed in the universal language of sports. At the age of 9, he came to the United States from Eritrea in East Africa. His passion for sports helped him transition to this country and take advantage of endless opportunities. Manny played soccer competitively at the high school and collegiate level, winning regional and national championships and received conference awards for athletic achievement.
Manny studied Psychology in college and as captain of Penn State Brandywine’s soccer team, he led the team to 2 consecutive PSUAC Championships. In his senior year, he suffered an ACL injury but remained determined to recover. During rehabilitation, Manny discovered slow-motion strength training and the benefits of The Perfect Workout. Manny believes, with proper training, everyone has the ability to meet and exceed their fitness goals.
Having been a soccer coach, Manny loved the feeling of helping others and guiding them towards their goals. He decided he wanted to join the field of fitness as a professional Personal Trainer and joined The Perfect Workout team. In 2016, Manny became certified and began training clients in the Ardmore studio where he remains today.
When Manny is not training at The Perfect Workout, he spends his time playing and coaching soccer and mentoring individuals looking to improve their physical fitness and quality of life.

Madeline Malerich has been involved in fitness all her life, playing everything from soccer to field hockey growing up. When she began taking up long-distance running, she began to experience knee and ankle problems, and quickly realized the need for additional strength training in order to prevent injuries. That’s when she discovered slow-motion strength training!
After Madeline graduated from Johns Hopkins University with a degree in Public Health, she moved to Philadelphia, PA. She was looking to begin her health and wellness career with a position that would give her hands-on experience in the fields of nutrition, exercise, and weight loss/chronic disease prevention. Madeline found that The Perfect Workout was the ideal environment for her with its all-encompassing, hands-on certification and highly beneficial exercise method.
In 2018, Madeline earned her Personal Trainer certification and began working with clients all over the Philadelphia region. Today she trains in Ardmore, Paoli and Huntingdon Valley studios. “I was sold from my first workout. I was totally convinced that the method truly does work and that it is something that I would love to share with others!”
Being a long-distance runner for over a decade now, Madeline is excited to have incorporated slow-motion strength training. “I can’t imagine my fitness regimen without it.” In addition to the results she helps her clients get at The Perfect Workout, Madeline particularly enjoys the semi-private environment. “1-on-1 training is crucial to keeping the workout safe and efficient. It allows us to give personal attention to form, speed, breathing, and the amount of resistance each client is using.” She also loves the personal connection that each Trainer is able to develop with their clients. “It’s nice to have the opportunity to not only help people but to hear about their lives, struggles, victories, and stories, and to share laughs.”
In her free time, Madeline likes to spend time with her parents, four siblings, and husband, play ultimate Frisbee, go on long runs/hikes, and find beautiful views to photograph. Once her husband completes medical school, Madeline plans to get her PhD in Chronic Disease Prevention and Nutrition. She’s also working towards qualifying for the Boston Marathon.
Madeline has long been passionate about helping others to dream big and achieve their goals. She enjoys the opportunity that The Perfect Workout gives her to do just that.
