Success Story: Cristiana

Published:  08/04/2016

Cristiana After at 138.8 pounds

I'm now in the best shape ever-even before kids! So far I have lost 23 pounds and 19 inches. I've gone from a size 8 to a size 4!

I started  my journey with Maria when I had reached a point in my life where I had enough of not being as healthy as I knew I could be or wanted to be.  I had two children within one year (they are 11 months apart) and it had taken a toll on my body, but I had let that excuse keep me from working out or eating healthy for 3 more years until I called Maria.

I was mostly looking for someone to pay 100% attention to me and hold my hand through the difficult beginning stage of trying to create a life change.  Maria supported me in this and SO much more.  She has become a mentor, idol, life coach, and friend. I have learned so much about nutrition and fitness and I am pleased to say that the things I am learning and doing now are sustainable for the rest of my life.

I have seen results past what I expected or wished for, but the funny thing is that most would give up at this point of satisfaction.  I feel the opposite - I want to continue to push myself and I couldn't imagine doing that without Maria's guidance and coaching.  She really provides the whole package in training and nutrition and I am so grateful to have found her in my journey to a fit and healthy lifestyle.
