Name: Maria Barkey
Job: Personal Trainer, Nutrition Consultant, Sport Yoga Teacher & Mother of two
Background: I spent my teenage life and most of my 20’s living an extremely unhealthy lifestyle despite being a regular gym member. My life seemed to be a string of parties and late nights, and eating for me consisted of rich foods, microwave meals and takeaways. After a life changing event I realised that I needed to clean up and turn myself around completely. From that day onwards I began making small changes, and as my knowledge and understanding of health and fitness grew, so did my self respect. Soon I was taking it seriously as a career too. After studying and taking qualifications initially in yoga, followed by fitness and nutrition, I started teaching yoga and got involved in personal training.
Now as a fully trained and certified Personal Trainer with over 15 years experience, I would love to have the opportunity to help make that difference for you. I feel passionate about helping people improve their lifestyle and fitness levels, and because I know how hard this can be, you’ll always get total support from me. From my own personal experience, I know that with the right exercise, nutrition, information and support, anyone can improve their fitness levels, health and lifestyle by “Making Health a Habit”.
