West Norriton, PA 19403

Since putting on my first pair of basketball sneakers, to choosing songs for my co-ed football “pump-up” playlist, I knew I had the heart of an athlete. And while I’ve yet to score my NBA contract or hear from the Eagles, my drive to compete is far from retiring. Which is what landed me in Personal Training with The International Sports Sciences Association. But it didn’t happen right away and it wasn’t easy. After attending Temple University and spending 7-years in the advertising world, I realized although I had a knack for the business, my heart was missing. So I stepped back and decided to look for L.O.V.E. It didn’t take long for me to realize that my purpose all along wasn’t just to “pump” myself up, but to show others how to do it for themselves. Between my love for fitness, competition and leading teams of all kinds, training was a natural fit. Which is why you should get FIT with M.E. Because I have a feeling that you too have an inner athlete that walks with you every day. I offer private training at an Athletic Training Facility in West Norriton. Additionally, twice a week I lead a bootcamp-style class at the facility. Outside of the facility I offer at-home personal training, outdoor mobile bootcamps, running/race coaching, and on-demand HIIT classes. I also develop workout plans for those who belong to a gym and can't afford a regular trainer but need a structured plan.

    Maria is an awesome trainer! Unfortunately I was only able to train with her for a few months but in the time I did train with her I found her workouts to be challenging and exciting. There was never a boring session or one that was repetitive. If you want a trainer that will just let you go through the motions and fake the funk for a paycheck then she isn't the one. She will push you and keep pushing you if it looks like you are slacking. No quitting here. Finally she has a great personality and is fun to work out with so that made it even easier to get the energy up needed for one of her workouts!

    Maria has been nothing but amazing!! I started training with her recently and she’s been one of the best trainers I’ve worked with. She’s always on top of her fitness game, pushes & motivates me! It’s nice to meet someone so passionate about what they do too. And to too everything off- she’s super responsive if I have a question about fitness in general. I’ve already been seeing inches come off my waist, so you know she’s good. If you’re looking for a reliable, positive and awesome trainer, I’d highly recommend Maria!!

    I am so grateful for the opportunity to train with Maria! I have watched her at the gym for months and finally decided to have her train me. She has enabled me to push myself out of my comfort zone and complete exercises/strength training I never would of tried on my own. I've enjoyed training with her so much that I am signing up for additional sessions!

    Former division I athlete that gained lots and lots of weight in my 30s. Met up with Maria earlier this year - trained twice a week for months. She's great at keeping you motivated, keeping high energy and generally makes the session fun and go by fast. I liked that she pushed my limits and knew what I was capable of given the college training I had - made me work hard, and fast. I've lost 75lbs from exercise and diet changes....I think that indicates she may be fairly good at what she does ;)

    Don't come half prepared or you won't make it. Maria provides a great/killer strength and endurance workout session in a nice open environment. If you haven't already tried one of her sessions and are looking for a challenge... I highly recommend you sign up now. It's a hour long with little rest, see if you can make it all the way through
