Maria Pellini

Peachtree Corners, GA 30092

I began working in the fitness industry in 1993 as an AFAA certified Group Exercise instructor, & an ACE Certified Personal Trainer shortly thereafter. I have continued my education over the years and have earned certifications through ACSM, NASM, NSPA, Spinning, & LES MILLS ‘BODYPUMP’. I have held several management positions such as a Group Exercise Director, Personal Training Director & General Manager. Prior to my career in the fitness industry I enjoyed taking aerobics classes & worked in a corporate environment.
My mission is to provide my clients with a high quality health and fitness experience in a professional manner. As a professional woman and mother I understand the challenges of daily life that can make it difficult for even the most dedicated fitness enthusiast to get a workout in, but I enjoy helping my clients find a way to achieve their health and fitness goals! I will lead and motivate my clients through challenging workouts, asking them to step outside of their comfort zone and have fun with it! I love to tell my clients “I will never ask you to do anything I don’t think you can do!” With the right guidance, motivation & progressions they can usually do a lot more than they think they can!!

    Maria is the SUPERWOMAN of personal training – she is the complete package and then some! I have been training with Maria for 18 months and have benefitted tremendously from every moment. Maria has challenged me to find the strength of which I am capable in a manner that focuses on form and alignment with an emphasis on safety and injury prevention.
    Maria comes to every session prepared. She develops each session’s program in advance which improves session efficiency and ensures we continue to work toward my goals. Maria also has an amazingly large toolbox of exercises so each session is new and challenging – I am never bored! She has an excellent knowledge of exercise and human anatomy and constantly comes up with creative alternatives to the basic and fundamental movements.
    The benefits I have received from training with Maria have been psychological as well as physiological. In addition to being the strongest and fittest I have ever been, I have also improved my self confidence and ability to focus on and enjoy the present which helps so much in today’s world. I always leave my sessions in a better space and spirit than when I arrived and leave the gym with renewed energy and a big smile!

    I’ve been working with Maria for several months and have seen great results. Maria’s friendly personality helps to create an encouraging, motivating atmosphere and she makes every workout challenging and fun. She always has a plan for every workout that keeps me moving forward toward my goals. She is very attentive and places a high value on correct form for each exercise and teaching me how to do it correctly. In just the first few weeks of working with Maria I was amazed to see how my body began responding. I am stronger than I have ever been. My energy, balance and flexibility have all improved immensely – all of which has really improved my tennis game. If you have finally made the decision to improve your health and fitness, Maria is a great Personal Trainer to motivate and guide you every step of the way!
