My favorite client story

My client, a mom of two little boys, absolutely hated training. I prepared fun sessions for her and introduced her to running. Now, we train 3 times a weeks together, she has lost 20lbs and she ran her first race. She is loving her new life and body.

Guys, Maria is the best trainer ever! The workouts are challenging and interesting and I already see so many changes. She is someone who could have trained me when I was 20 30 40 or 50. She really has designed an amazing program for me. I'm getting stronger every week and I love it Give yourself a chance to feel really good about yourself.!


With a lot of resistance but with a great desire to continue collecting anecdotes with my lifelong friends, I was training with the great Maria who helped me a lot, and even managed to get me to stop.

I never liked all this, least of all running. It lasted 2 minutes and I had to stop because I felt like I was going to spit out a lung, and here I am running my first 5K race! Absolute happiness and proud of myself. Thank you Maria for always motivating me more, a large part of all this is thanks to you.

I’ve been training with Maria for a while now. I love our workouts, she always switches things up and motivates me. She combines different types of workouts so I get a good full body workout in 45 mins, incorporating strength training and core conditioning exercises. She also understands a lot of women can get dizzy easily, so certain movements she reminds me to do it slow. Very knowledgeable and corrects my form; I’m always so proud when she says I have good form now! As a busy mom , it’s really hard for me to find time and energy to workout . Maria’s online sessions works well for me- because I get a professional and personable trainer in the comfort of my home ???? Thanks Maria!


She is amazing to train with. She motivates me and cares about my health. Her workouts are well planned and she always has fun new workouts.


I highly recommend Maria as a personal trainer. From day one, she has been professional, knowledgeable, and incredibly motivating. Maria customized my training plan to fit my goals, ensuring every session is challenging yet achievable. Her positive energy and support kept me motivated, even on tough days. She emphasizes proper form and technique, which has helped me avoid injuries and make steady progress.


Maria creates fun workouts that are challenging and keep me motivated. Maria has helped me to feel more motivated than I have in years to exercise and eat healthy. I am gaining confidence and losing inches! Maria is the best!!!
