Hey there, HEAT family! This month’s member spotlight comes from our San Marcos studio. Everybody, meet Maria M. : )
Maria joined the HEAT family in May of this year, shortly after we opened our doors. Since day 1, Maria has been a shining example of positivity and hard work. Here’s how Maria describes here time at HEAT:
~ Where did your love of fitness start?
“My love of fitness came when my son introduced me to the running world. He ran cross-country throughout high school, and we used to run on weekends. Then, I took it to another level. I began to run 1/2 marathons, full marathons and 1 Ultra marathon. He tells me he created a monster.”
~ When/how did you hear about HEAT?
“A friend of mine introduced me to HEAT Bootcamp back in May. I had been going through a divorce, and I lost all motivation. I needed a place where I could go to leave the stress of it all behind. I loved my first day so much I said “Sign me up!” Gym time became my therapy time. I drive from Seguin to San Marcos just to workout , so that tells you something! This place is amazing!”
~ What does exercise mean to you?
“Exercise means so much to me. Staying healthy and fit has given me so much time together with my 23 year old son and my 16 year old daughter. I get to run races with my son, and I get to hike and play tennis with my daughter. It’s a great feeling to be able to share these moments with them. This has become a lifestyle for me.”
