CEO & Owner | TFW Coach

Not always a fitness person, most of my life I struggled with weight. Being a mom of three children, my health was always put on the back burner. I turned things around a couple of years ago and never looked back. I can truly say that “I’ve been there” and it’s never too late to start.

TFW Coach

Growing up playing sports teaches you a lot of things; teamwork, respect, dedication, leadership, competitiveness, discipline. But it can inadvertently teach you to care more about your own success than the team’s. 

It took becoming a Coach at TFW Brooklyn and immersing myself in the culture to realize that it’s all about playing for the name on the front of the jersey, not the name on the back. My intention is to make everyone who walks through our doors feel like they’re on a team here, even, and especially, if they’ve never been part of a team before.

Maryanne Sawyer


I never thought in a million years I would be a fitness coach. I didn’t fit the mold, but here I am. I broke that mold and am loving every minute of working with people who are working on themselves! Love being part of the process!

Before joining the TFW Brooklyn team, I coached HIIT and Strength Training classes for over 6 years at a gym in my hometown of Rockaway Beach, NY. The opportunity to become a coach came at a time in my life when I feel like I could appreciate it most. I believe that’s why I find so much joy in coaching. The hard work and dedication I see in my clients pushes me to be even better. I’m grateful for the fact that I am able to help others through physical fitness and I’m happy to have the chance to share, with the members of TFW, what I have to offer.
