About Maria

So you wanna know about me?

I’m Maria. A 25-year-old ACE certified personal trainer originally from Kentucky, but currently living in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I’m always on the go and I wear a lot of hats—from personal trainer and service desk director at a gym, to wife and dog Mom at home. Despite being busy, my health and fitness are a top priority for me.

I’ve been running for 4+ years (you can read my running history here) and enjoy staying active as much as possible. I try to practice what I preach by choosing whole foods 80% of the time, staying active, and enjoying treats in moderation.

This blog is my effort to share what it takes to stay healthy, happy, and whole when time is short and days are long.
