Dr. Maria Luque PhD, MS, CHES, CPT
HEAT Coach | Personal Trainer
My passion for fitness goes back as far as I remember. Growing up in Germany, I was inundated in a culture that fosters fitness as a daily part of life. Walking or biking to school, bike trips to neighboring France, hiking in the woods, track & field, competitive handball and ping-pong, are just a few of my fond memories of growing up. So it seems natural for me to make my profession all about health and wellness.
After serving in the US Air Force for 7 years as a Fitness Program Manager, I decided to make my passion my career. I received my certification as a Certified Personal Trainer through the American Council on Exercise (ACE) and after my career in the US Air Force, I decided to take my education to the next level, graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Master of Science in Health Sciences (MSHS) and continued on to graduate as a Ph.D. in Health Science.
Now, with almost 20 years of experience, I’ve designed a unique training style and approach to fitness. My approach not only works out your body but your mind. I strongly believe that to make real, long lasting results you must do more than exercise your body; your mind is a powerful player as well. I will give you a fun (yes, I said fun) but challenging workout that will change your perceptions and attitude about exercise, fitness, and health.
Allow my education, expertise, and passion for fitness help you reach your goals.
