New Program

I have been doing P90X3 all Summer long. Until 2 weeks ago I had to take a rest. Teaching fitness classes for 24 years has taken a toll here and there. I have over use injuries over over use injuries!

But recently this one made me take a long look at the way I am exercising.

I was diagnosed with a tear in the labrum in my right hip. So basically lunges and squats are going to aggravate it.

Thank goodness Beachbody is always coming out with new programs.

PIYO has been an answer for me. It's a combination of Pilates and Yoga. It's been called Yoga for athletes.

This is PIYO:




If you are looking to try a new program that is gentler on your joints, join me in my Challenge group, I have over 2000 people in it! 24/7 you will always have someone to help you and support you, it's pretty cool!

21 DAY FIX <——————–




Yummy easy recipe!



Ground turkey paired with black beans makes these tacos lean and filling. Corn tortillas are a whole-grain food, making them a tasty and wholesome alternative to white-flour tortillas.



Serves: 6
Hands-on time: 10 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes


  • 12 corn tortillas
  • 1 1/4 lb extra-lean ground turkey
  • 1 15-oz can low-sodium black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup, plus 2 tbsp chunky low-sodium salsa
  • 2 cups (packed) romaine lettuce, chopped


  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • Ground black pepper and sea salt, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Loosely wrap tortillas in foil, making 2 packets of 6 tortillas each. Place packets on a baking sheet and bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until hot.
  2. Coat a skillet with cooking spray and heat on medium-high. Add turkey and cook until lightly browned and cooked through, about 6 to 8 minutes, breaking up meat as you go. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Unwrap foil packets and place 2 tortillas on each of 6 plates. For each plate, distribute 1/2 cup turkey, 1/4 cup beans, 3 tbsp salsa and 1/3 cup lettuce evenly between both tortillas. Serve immediately.

Still on the fence about trying shakeology?


I have to tell you that personally, it has cured my acid reflux and gastritis. I don't always get to eat right through out the day, so at least I make sure I get that shaleology down and I know that I am good.

If you want to try it, I can send you a free sample. But we also have a sampler box for $20. This is a great way to see what it can do for you. Get it here:



Why Drink Shakeology Every Day? It can help you:*

  • Lose weight – especially if you replace a meal with Shakeology every day.
  • Reduce junk food cravings – drink it in the morning to enjoy this benefit throughout the day
  • Increase your energy and feel healthier.
  • Improve your digestion and regularity.


Why Should I have a Beachbody Coach?


I get a lot of questions asking me about coaches, how to get them, do I need one etc… This is what I tell people:

I have great groups for group support. You will get that. But I also hope that you are connected to an active coach for personal support as well. In my 24 years of being a Fitness Specialist and a Beachbody Coach, I can tell you that the combination of the two will give you a better chance of success. With that said, if you were assigned a random coach, that is not a bad thing. Pretty much the majority of us were all assigned a random coach. Give him or her a chance to reach out to you. It may take a week or so. When you do finally connect, interview that coach in a sense. Tell them what you expect from them as a Coach. If you don't know what to expect, here are a few things I think a Coach should be for their customers;

* Someone who is supportive and not pushy

* Someone who's main focus is to help people, not to make sales

* Someone who helps people achieve their goals and enjoy a healthy fulfilling life. (the Beachbody mission statement)

* Someone who can help keep people motivated, informed and accountable

* Someone who is also on a fitness journey as well and does not have the perfect body!!


 So…if I am yor coach or if Paul, my husbnad is your coach, reach out to us….it's FREE!!!


Why not??  Go here so I can be your FREE Coach —->


I hope to be hearing back from you,




Maria & Paul


When success is your only option it becomes the only thing that you can think about.  TRUE?  No matter if its your fitness journey or its the start of your own business you have this drive, motivation, focus and commitment to truly reaching your goals.  You get your engine all revved up, you dream big, you set goals, you have this fire in your belly that you know some way, some how something great is about to happen to you.  Then you sign up, you become a coach or join a challenge group and you feel on top of the World.
Excited New Coach
Then, it's time to get started!!  (insert oh CRAP button).  You freeze, you get scared, you literally have no idea where to go from here!  There is this flood of emotion that come
surging into your body!Team Beachbody Coach Training
Common thoughts consist of:
  • What if I fail?
  • What if no one wants to join my group?
  • What if I annoy my friends?
  • I don't want to sell people stuff.
  • I am afraid of what others will think of me?
  • I am not at my goal weight.
  • I don't have a lot of friends on facebook.
  • I am shy.
  • I don't know anything about social media.
  • I am not a fitness professional or expert in nutrition.
  • I don't have enough time.
  • I don't have money to get started.
  • I can't possibly do everything that YOU do!

Yes I have heard it all! Trust me, being a leader in Team Beachbody for almost 4 years has brought every single emotion possible either in my own mind or from the mind of my team!  The one thing that consistently holds people back from success is the fear of failure!  It has this truly debilitating control over many people.  I mean people want to be successful in every sense of the word but literally their mind stops them dead in their tracks from moving forward.  TRUST me, I've been there!!!  I know this feeling all to well.  Let me tell you a secret!

I have battled depression and really struggled with anxiety attacks with clostrophobia into my early adult career. I have to say at times it seems to get worse! It was to the point where I could not go into elevators and I still really can't.  But through a lot of prayer and focus I am slowley over coming this.  The one thing I learned is to ask myself this, "Am I going to die?"  Is this situation fatal?  Truthfully, if I fail what is the worst that can happen? Say your response to those questions OUT LOUD.  It almost sounds silly when you say your irrational fears out loud!  Repeat after me, "I AM AFRAID OF SUCCESS" How crazy is that! Success doesn't happen over night.  Success takes time, its a ladder that you climb one rung at a time. The reason it happens gradually is so that you have time to adjust to the new role, the new feelings and you are able to grow as a leader as your success grows! The only thing we should be afraid of is not trying at all!
Fear of Failure, Motivational Quotes, Fear, Failure, Team Beachbody
Beachbody Coaching
Starting a new business is different from the norm.  The norm in our society is to get a job, work for a boss, complete the job description, collect a paycheck and go home!  But what if you could be the boss, determine your own work hours, build your own company from the ground up, be truly passionate about your days work and be fulfilled in more ways that one from it?!  
Sounds like a pretty sweet deal right?!?!?  To some yes and to others it scares the living daylights out of them.  But that is why there are so many options in the world we live in.  No matter what your personality style is there is a career path that fits who YOU are!  So if you find yourself sitting here reading this asking yourself if you would be good at it then you definitely need to explore the options!!!  
Why?  Because, you don't ever want to wonder if it would of been the right fit for you!  Honestly, if it ends up not being your thing then that is totally ok!  But I believe in giving everyone a fair chance, with proper training, support, accountability and motivation!!!

If you have been considering becoming a coach or you are just ready to jump right into the game then now is the time!  I am kicking off my Live Life Brilliantly Accelerated Coach Apprenticeship Program on August 4th. 
 I am truly limiting this group to a select few brand new coaches. They will join MY team and are:
-Committed to growing a business that is successful based on your own goals and personal commitment.
-Driven to be successful & are willing to take a risk.
-Dedicated to helping others achieve their health and fitness goals.

Email me at :
The cool part about what I do as a leader is this:
I literally live, breathe, and wake up to help my team!  There is not a day that goes by that I am not thinking of how I can improve my process, my strategy and my teaching to help my team be successful quicker! I want to avoid my team from making mistakes that I made, from learning the hard way or re-inventing the wheel.  I am an open book and I train each and every one of my coaches through my new coach apprenticeship program.  This program is not a cookie cutter, pre packaged training program, it is literally customized to the Team Phitness to my teaching style, and delivered by myself!!!  
For the next 60 days you get daily, 24/7 access to myself, my closed online group, weekly mentoring calls and 1:1 calls to help you get started right!
I will teach you the most important daily activities to focus your attention and energy on.  We will discuss how to invite, how to share not sell, how to use social media to expand your market of influence, how to take your every day life and turn it into your business.  How to take your passion for helping others and make a profit.  I am going to give you access to all of my training tools, documents, resources, guides, videos and more.  There is nothing that you will not have access to!
I believe that training and getting started right are the keys to success. 
If you want to be a successful coach, if you want to help inspire others to make a change, if you want to live your life brilliantly every single day then today is your day to take a leap of faith and join the  Team Phitness along with The Empire.  We have a wealth of knowledge, information, leadership, support and mentoring to plug in to. There is nothing that you can't accomplish with a family like this! 
I hope to be hearing fro you soon!!
