Maria’s the 30 day challenge was a blast, really inspirational watching everyone do their challenges. Ever since I started working out with you I realized the importance of functionality of muscle. Your circuit training classes have helped my performance in the Spartan races in ways I never thought possible. The 30 Day Challenge got me better prepared for my next race in November and has taught me so much about myself and how much my body can take. I did one of the challenges over on a day I felt tired, I dug deep and got it done. Many times in life will be like that. You are tired don’t feel like it yet you know it must be done.
I would love to see more guys out there next time. These challenges and classes are extremely good for strength, endurance and functionality of the muscle. Weightlifting is great, I love it! But it’s one way to exercise. Your 30 Day Challenge encompasses every possible aspect of exercises that touches strength endurance, agility and flexibility. Thank you for all you teaching me!Edwin Tolon
I am so thankful to the 30 day summer challenge, giving me the motivation I needed to start getting back into shape. Kept exercise part of my life everyday. I can’t wait for the next challenge to begin!! #exerciserightexerciseforlifeSarah King
“This fitness challenge far exceeded anything I could have ever imagined. Not only was every day a true challenge but Maria made sure that we all exercised safely. She critiqued our form and motivated to “exercise right.” Maria’s dedication to creating fun and interesting challenges as well as her inspiration and motivation is unique and infectious.
By incorporating meditation, slew tracking, water tracking and fitness, Maria is able to elevate our potential for a better and healthier lifestyle.”Sabrina Trammel
I didn’t know what to expect when I started the 30 Day Challenge with Maria. I was just trying to change up my workout routine a little. It truly was bigger then my expectations. I loved it. It was motivating, exciting, suspenseful, rewarding, challenging and fun. Maria was awesome through it all. 10 out of 10!Jackie Cruz
What was your biggest lesson learned from this challenge?
“The biggest lesson that I learned from this challenge was acceptance. I’ve learned to accept my body and to stop comparing myself to fit women on magazines or TV. Being fit is not only about tone muscles and hardcore abs, fitness is part of healthy lifestyle that involves feeding your body nutritious food, taking rest when needed, and finding a balance when life becomes overwhelming. For me being fit is a mental, sometimes we focus to much on the way we look instead of how we feel. Before the challenge, I was obsessed with getting a six pack, which is great to have a goal and be driven by it; however, I was missing the big picture of why I am working out and why I chose to eat healthy…because I want to be healthy. The challenge truly allowed me to feel great both mentally and physically.”Bibiana Avendano, South Florida
Learning to LOVE the process it takes to get to my end result was something I found myself enjoying. I feel stronger, healthier, and more fit altogether which enables my children to grow up in an environment where being healthy is part of LIFE.Maria Tumanjan, South Florida
#TheMariaMethod workouts have been a part of my #routine for a few years now. They’ve helped me train for a half marathon, a triathlon, slowly return from a lower back injury, and now get me prepped for the ultimate marathon of #childbirth. 35 weeks pregnant and with Maria’s modifications I can still make them work. They may not look pretty anymore but they still count. Here’s to many more #MeltdownandMuscleUp #HIIT workouts with my dogs AND a baby by my side. #physicaltherapist #dpt #safeworkouts #workoutwithme #fitnessathome #fitnesstrainer #homefitness #pregnancyfitness #onlinefitness #onlineworkouts #exercisevideos #homeworkout #fitspo #mondaymotivationNicole Hoag, North Carolina
Maria has changed the way I workout! Everyday is something different so I am never bored! I love that she’s personalized my workouts to my wants/needs, and, also is helping me build my own workouts. She has become a coach, a mentor, a friend, and has inspired me to become a fitness instructor. I’ve learned proper form, what exercises are more harmful than beneficial, and how to break the exercise down in order to build it back up. I would highly recommend Maria to my family and friends! Thanks for a great push into a healthier lifestyle and helping me feel confident about my body while still remaining humble!Leah Rubinstein, South Florida
“Yoga HIIT is a fantastic combination of strength and stretching. I love how Maria pairs the HIIT exercise movements to a Yoga stretch movement and of course explains the reasoning/benefits for doing so. Totally the best of two worlds, especially for someone like me who is maintaining recovery from an ACL repair. I would highly recommend Yoga HIIT and you really can’t beat the convenience too.”Lauren Dressel, South Florida
