As a way to overcome her own life obstacles, Maria began a journey of learning and studying exercise and wellness in order to heal her mind, body, and spirit. While getting a Master degree at UCF in Exercise Physiology, she simultaneously received her certification in Personal Training, and later in various group exercise topics, so she could pass along her knowledge and findings with others. She is currently working toward her Doctorate in Physical Therapy.
In 2016, she brought her own weight loss journey to social media as a way of sharing her daily struggles with a larger audience. Since then, Maria has worked with different types of people to change their health and habits. She believes that anybody can make changes to their health for the better and spends her time working with individual clients to find what works best for them.
Teaching others how to feel the best in their bodies from the inside out, allowed her to inspire many to let their boundaries go, and get in touch with how fitness and exercise can work for them.
