Mort Fertel Reviews
Our Marriage Fitness Journey
When I first sought out marriage help, Mort Fertel’s name kept coming up. I wanted to see what all the hype was about so I searched online for Mort Fertel Reviews. Reading real reviews was important to me before taking the plunge.
Now that we’ve successfully “graduated” from the program, we wanted to write our own honest review of Mort Fertel’s program, Marriage Fitness. We will walk you through step-by-step exactly what we did to create healthy relationship patterns using Mort Fertel’s tools.
Truthfully, we owe everything to Mort! Without him and his program, we wouldn’t be here today. We wanted to create a little blog with our own testimonials to inspire other couples with hope. If we could do it, so can you!
Like most couples, we were a bit skeptical at first. Online marriage help? Could it work? But we decided to give it a go anyway.
Does Marriage Counseling Work if Only One Person Goes?
All my life, I heard the expression, “It takes two to tango“. So I figured it was the same with marriage counseling. If Karl wasn’t on board, it wouldn’t work. I thought BOTH of us need to do this or it wouldn’t be successful. Boy was I wrong!
From the very beginning, I started implementing Mort’s advice on my own. The teleconferences were fun and easy to listen to. I never felt like I was listening to a sermon, I was never bored, and it certainly wasn’t a chore to call in. He literally gave us step-by-step instructions on what to do to save our marriage. It was pretty easy to follow his advice on my own at first.
How I Got Karl to Join Me in the Program
One day, Karl and I had planned a day trip. We were doing really well that day and I asked if it was alright if I just popped in one of Mort Fertel’s CDs for the drive. I was so happy when he agreed. And I was shocked when he actually paid attention to it. I’ve NEVER seen him listen to anything so intently. I don’t think he even watches football with that much concentration!
We listened quietly for awhile and then we were interrupted by a phone call and he answered. I thought, “That’s it, at least I tried.” But as soon as he hung up, he actually wanted to discuss something we had listened to! Karl really warmed up to the idea of talk charges. Secretly, I think he was excited for me to call him about non-logistical stuff! At that point, everything was logistics and coordinating. We both welcomed the light and easy quick check-ins. I’m happy to report that we still do talk charges! Little by little, he started listening on his own and that’s when I knew he was in!
Mort Fertel’s Program
I’m excited to share our success story, but for this to be one of those real Mort Fertel Reviews, I have to tell you a little bit about the program itself! First, I signed up for the FREE email advice. Every couple of days, I would receive an email that really made sense. The emails were easy to read and I found that whatever Mort suggested actually WORKED

The emails were amazing but I decided we needed a bit more help. I joined the program as a lone ranger shortly after. Karl works late (one of the biggest issues in our marriage!) so I called in to the first teleconference alone. I was blown away. Everything just made so much sense! I kept up with the program and applied everything I learned to my marriage.
Being a lone ranger was definitely difficult at first but I’m glad I was patient! After Karl listened to that first CD in the car, he began asking if we could listen together ON HIS OWN! Believe me, I was shocked.
Happily Ever After
We are in the best place ever right now. And I owe it all to Mort Fertel and his Program. I never thought I could have a marriage like this. I couldn’t be more thankful for where we are today.
