      Until I met Maria I would continuously injure myself and just wait for the pain to subside and start exercising again. Maria’s training (through her careful observation of my movements) freed me from my constant injuries.  I learned proper form, and was taken to levels I never thought I could never achieve in weight training.  I didn’t start running until the age of 60, but after working with Maria, I was able to complete a 5k (maybe not such a big achievement for some, but to someone who never ran, a milestone).

      It's was approximately 15 years ago when I joined the gym. Initially I hated working out, giving every excuse in the book to not come to the gym or take a class...  But then I met Maria...  She convinced me to take her step class, that was the best thing I ever did!  I signed up for her personal training / boot camp.  I am 123 pounds lighter and counting.  Thanks to Maria I have the fitness bug!  She is a motivator, a teacher, and sister friend.

        With the background and nutritional information and understanding, coupled with appropriate personalized training and physical guidance, and the important support and coaching provided, I was able to overcome my long-standing battle with reaching my ideal weight goal. And along the way, I re-shaped my body and my mind, have developed a level of fitness I did not think possible, and am challenged to continue maintaining that great feeling of wellness in mind, body and spirit. Without Maria, none of this would have been possible.  - Leora

      I have been taking Maria's Wednesday morning pilates class for YEARS. It is an advanced class that has really helped to shape and tone my body.  Maria teaches her class in an upbeat, enthusiastic way, is funny and sometimes even throws in some words of wisdom. On a personal level I have found her to be insightful and inspirational, a true professional and genuine person.

      For three years I made my work schedule around Maria's step classes, they were loads of fun, while giving me a GREAT workout! Now that I started training with her, I see that she could make me love Pilates too. As I approach 40

I thank her for keeping me in shape!

Maria is a wonderful motivator. She knows how to keep the session interesting and switch gears when things are getting repetitive. She's as good for your head as she is for your body! Smart, lots of energy, kind and flexible. You'll see results! Give her a try.  - RAS

        I have participated a number of training classes led by Maria, and found her to be one of the most engaging and enjoyable personal trainers I've ever encountered. She puts together challenging but enjoyable workouts, and infuses the training sessions with her energetic and enjoyable personality. You can tell that she truly cares about her clients, and does everything she can to help them achieve and maintain thier health and wellness goals.


She one of the best at what she does, and I highly recommend her."  - Hollis
