Fitness and competitive athletics have been an integral part of Maria’s life for the past 20 years. She takes pride in her training programs, workout discipline and on staying current in the fitness industry. In the last year, she earned her certification in Russian Kettlebell and in TRX. Her priority is her clients’ fitness and safety, while pushing them to transform their bodies by becoming leaner, stronger and functionally fit. She makes every workout personal and ensures that her classes are effectively structured to challenge beyond limits, while keeping them fun! Maria’s motto is “work-life-balance” with her own focus on balancing a professional career with IBM, active parenting of two children, and leading a healthy, active lifestyle. Last year, Maria was featured in Fitness Magazine and a special fitness edition of Better Homes and Garden Magazine for her personal achievements in body transformation through the years. Maria’s key advice to others is: make it personal and surround yourself with positive / influential people. Also, approach your exercise program as another appointment on your calendar. Make it part of your daily routine and work plan. And make NO excuses!
