Creator of BURN® and Co-Founder of Hard Core Fitness Studio

Maria has been a successful group fitness instructor for many years, having undergone her own dramatic weight-loss and understanding full well what that journey entails. She started her fitness career by teaching kickboxing and cardio salsa for various local gyms in Orange County. Throughout the years, she has also taught club boxing, bootcamp, Zumba, kettlebell training, weight training, indoor cycling, yoga and Pilates.  She has since created her own High Intensity Fitness Program, BURN™. Hard Core Fitness Studio is the culmination of Maria’s experience and passion for fitness and empowerment through exercise.
