Maria Munoz CPT
My goal is to empower the everyday person to push past their comfort zone and towards a strong and healthy lifestyle...
I didn’t always have a passion for fitness! The truth is sometimes just like everyone else I need motivation too! About 6 years I decided to make some changes to my lifestyle, I was out of shape, had a shoulder injury and just didn't feel good,strong or healthy! I wasn’t old BUT I was feeling OLD.. I knew I could be better..So I decided to I should go back into the gym... RELUCTANTLY! I remember the first day back at the gym perfectly!! I didn't want to go, I kept saying tomorrow, Monday okay Saturday- I always found an excuse to stop me from going.. Finally I stopped with the excuses and drug myself in. The day I went it was raining and cold- I got out of my car and immediately stepped in a big icy puddle. I thought "seriously?! Screw this" and ALMOST went home but after finding excuses so many times I went inside anyway-thinking "fine, I will go BUT I'm not going to work hard"! Once I got in and was there it felt good! I had a great workout! I was never so sore but for the next few weeks I made myself go.. From that day forward I vowed to myself I wasn't going to stop until I achieved my goals. I was sick of "starting over" and waiting til "tomorrow"- I knew if I didn't go for it I'd just be regretting/wishing/wondering where I would be had I not started or given up..The gym became my peace and I've grown to love my time there! Through the years I've learned to prioritize my health and make time for it,I learned to keep my son involved and not make him my excuse but my reason! It’s been hard but so worth it..! Everyone’s goal is different whether it is to lose 5 pounds, gain muscle, be faster etc but you need to make the choice to take action on a plan and STICK with it and not give up, if you want it bad enough you can make it happen..but you have to take the steps to start and remember results don't come overnight, long lasting results take time to materialize so be patient.. The first few months are the hardest but once you get in the groove it will become your "normal".
What made me decide to become a trainer! My passion of fitness grew everyday until I thought “maybe” I can do this and teach otherwise how to become a better version of themselves too! I received my personal training certificate. I am also certified in sports performance, post rehab modalities, TRX.
My approach is no shortcuts! I believe with the right tools you should be able to have balance by learning how to properly fuel your body with food and exercise that fits your lifestyle! I have changed many lives and I can’t wait to change yours!!
