More About Coach Maria

Running is such an innate action, that I have found personal interest in helping people enjoy it and achieve their goals injury free. It was a main topic in my formation as trainer and MS in sports medicine. My experience coaching running are from coaching basics of running to helping clients completing an ultra marathon injury- free. Its in the form and muscle balance where running begins. Running is an excellent way to train the cardiovascular system. My experience in coaching for running will always begin with gait, running form, muscle imbalances and previous injuries analysis to set a starting point.

In high school I was pat of the track team, with good achievements in mid distance running like second place in regional competitions; since then running has been my preferred cardiovascular exercise. I continue to practice mid and long distance running in a recreational way. But eventually I will run for time doing a half marathon in under 1h50min or try to do under 10 min miles.

After doing some test and video analysis the first session, I will plan a training program based on the client's specific needs and goals. In a typical session first will be form and specific drills and strengthening exercises to avoid injuries, then depending on the fitness level of the client, the training will be focused on heart rate, training zones, trainings for distance, time or endurance. Then mobility and muscle recovery are in order.

Maria has been an amazing trainer and mentor for my daughter. Not only does she push her and work her out but she keeps up with her diet, helps her meal plan, and keeps in contact with her daily.

My daughter now sees Maria twice per week and Maria is an important person in her life.

Coach Maria comes prepared to each session with a workout schedule for me. I've learned a lot about proper technique for running and exercising.

Maria was great! - Our first session was no joke, she immediately got me working and pointing out area to improve. She walked me through every exercise and showed me the correct form to do them. I can't wait for our next session.

If you're looking for a great coach, you just found her. I've been working with Maria (Gaby) for several months now and could not be happier. She is extremely personable and really listens to you and what your body is signaling. She is knowledgeable and passionate about her field, always trying new things and continuing her education to be the best she can be. Each workout we do is different so you never know what to expect and there is absolutely no boredom. Her energy is infectious and motivates you without acting like a drill sargent. Working with her has been better than I ever expected and I can't wait to see what the future has in store.

Coach Maria worked really well with my son. Super friendly and knowledgable. He is excited to continue training with her to improve his skills.

Maria gets 5 stars!
It was great working with her!
She has exceeded my expectations in many ways. Not only is she incredibly skilled and knowledgeable, she is also fun. Maria knows what she's doing, and she does it well- with grace and a smile. She is tough on you, shoe is very strict about technique and injury prevention, and constantly makes you sweat. She seems very intuitive- just the right amount of push and pull to get you in the shape you want and achieve your goals!
Maria understood precisely what I need without intimidation or any judgment to be a better athlete. I came to her looking for ways to improve in my sport and get better results with more intelligent training, and even after one session I can notice a significant difference in my posture, movement patterns and now I know what to work on. I don’t really like structured exercise classes but, and I really look forward to seeing her again. I know she is the missing key to enhance my performance. Thank you Maria!

Ma . Gabriela is an excellent professional. My experience with her began in 2014 when I looked for her to help me fulfill a goal that I had set, to run a 50k Ultra marathon in the mountains . My closest experience to distance running was 10k and 4 years before a half marathon in town. I worked a full time job, was deconditioned and we had less than 8 months to the race. I virtually started from zero, but thanks to her extensive knowledge and unconditional support we succeeded. No only did I reach my goal thanks to Maria , but I also got the 8th place in the Open Women category , overtaking even some of the experienced runners . Not bad for my first long distance !! Best of all, it ended without injuries and with the best shape I've ever had in my life.
