Meet Maria

Ask any of Maria Rossi’s clients and they will tell you she is so much more than a fitness trainer. She is transformational, inspirational, motivational, kind, compassionate, supportive, warm, enthusiastic, and so much more. Originally from Argentina, Maria is an an award-winning body builder who lives and breathes a healthy lifestyle. Her expertise, positivity, and holistic living philosophy is the foundation of her personal training, weight loss, and nutritional coaching business. She truly loves what she does and feels blessed every time someone reaches out to her for training and coaching.

The Path of Transformation

Encouraging individuals — of all genders — to feel like the best version of themselves has always been Maria’s passion, along with fitness. She is an optimist by nature and says she can see a person and picture in her mind how that person wants to look and feel about themselves. Her work is more than just workouts. As a trainer and a coach, Maria sees herself as a guide, and walks with her clients through the process of transformation. It’s a path she knows from personal experience.

“When I turned 40 and started competing in bodybuilding, I thought that decade was the end of my youth,” says Maria. “I hired coaches and nutritionists and went through dozens of fitness and nutrition certifications. I learned how to feel and look better than I did in my 20’s — a time when I had 11 competitions, including Nationals, under my belt. After that, I was able to apply everything I learned to my clients with incredible results.”

A Different Mindset

Maria says that physical transformations start from within and go “much deeper than the visible results.” Many times in her work with clients, she has observed that physical changes lead to higher self esteem. In turn, that leads to positive changes in that person’s relationships, work, projects, and general outlook on life.

“The mindset is different once the person starts believing in themselves,” she says. “Now they know they can achieve whatever they want if they have the patience and they put the hard work into it. In my opinion my ‘success’ is transforming lives, turning unhealthy habits into healthy ones.”
