Rather than be a slave of trendy diets and 'the next' fitness fad, Maria has grounded her mental, physical and spiritual strengths in proven pillars of wellbeing.

Maria's foundation of inner strength and appreciation for all she has is renewed by being a constant student of yoga and meditation.

As mother of three children, Maria stays in shape by following two age old practices; running and the lifting of heavy weights.

A member of Bahrain Road Runnners, and an avid advocate of Mark Rippentoe's 'Starting Strength', Maria keeps her figure solid following a wholesome vegetarian diet.
