Tough question because I love music but I can always say it’s a 3-way tie between “The Pretender” by Foo Fighters, “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen and “Sabotage” by the Beastie Boys.

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT MARIA

I was a member at Merritt before I decided to become an instructor. As my passion for group fitness grew, I realized that I could teach and decided to get certified in Cycle. I love helping people realize their strengths, no matter where they are in their fitness journey. I encourage my students to train as if they were in their own race. Besides teaching, I’ve grown to love long distance running, lifting weights, triathlons and duathlons. These activities have helped me expand my knowledge and have made me a better instructor. In 2016 I joined Athletes Serving Athletes because I’m thankful for being able to run whenever I want, and I wanted to share this gift with athletes who need help in pursuing their racing dreams. My mantra has always been: “Have fun and just move!”
