Hey there! I’m Coach Maria, aka the “Calorie Killa,” and I am excited to be part of the Fit Radio Team! I currently reside in Atlanta but I have lived all over the US including Florida, Texas, Michigan, and California (where I was born).
I am a NASM Certified Personal Trainer and Fitness Nutrition Specialist. In addition to training my clients, I teach Group Fitness classes across Atlanta and coach hundreds of women online through my monthly weight loss challenges.
I got involved with fitness because I enjoy the “high” of changing lives for the better. As a mom of 4, I also understand the challenges of losing weight as I have personally gone through my own weight loss transformation(s). One of my biggest struggles was comparing my body to those of the women I admired. I remember being super hard on myself to achieve an “ideal look,” not realizing that the journey was so much more important than the “destination.” Through my own experience, I am able to help others LOSE weight and FIND themselves. Outside of feeling and looking my best, I’ve learned the value of self-discipline and am able to love myself through EVERY stage of my journey. It is so rewarding to help others find THEIR path. THAT’S why I do this.
From being a living example to the people I interact with to teaching my own children how to make healthy choices early in life, FITNESS has made a positive impact on my life in so many ways. I get excited when I SEE my clients transforming before my eyes, I feel like a badass when I deadlift TWICE my bodyweight, I celebrate the moments I’m able to practice self-control and not reach for a cupcake when I’m feeling emotional…LOL! There’s no doubt in my mind that being physically fit is directly connected to emotional and spiritual wellness.
Nutrition tips, home work-outs, behavioral change strategies, making the most of your time in the gym and living a healthy balanced life are some of the topics that you can expect to see on my blogs. I’m SUPER pumped about contributing to YOUR fitness journey and look forward to staying connected with you!
