What made this course stand out for me initially was that Dr. Maria focuses on women in menopause, and she has been a positive influence in my Austin fitness circles for 10+ years. What I took away from this course resulted in so much more. I have realistic and achievable goals. Maria helped me distinguish between what I truly enjoy doing to reach those self-care goals and have fun doing it. I track my progress in a way that makes sense to me. Even though I liked a variety of activities before, I am crystal clear on what types of exercise I want to do, versus what I should do, and how those two can overlap. Even better, I have a deeper appreciation for the phase of my life that I am in. Every aspect of the course has contributed to the best version of myself at at time when I needed it the most.

If you ever had voices in your head telling you: “you gained too much weight” or “you should be able to do this or that” or “you are lazy” – I strongly recommend you give yourself the gift of taking Maria’s [ New Moves coaching program ]. You will learn so much about how to move and even enjoy it, and also about how NOT to pay attention to the many voices out there trying to make money out of your distress by inviting you to go on useless (and unhealthy) diets, cut and alter your body, or buy lots of clothes “to hide your belly.” I cannot overestimate the positive impact working with Maria and taking her course had and continues to have on me personally. It is the best thing any woman struggling with some of the challenging mental and physical aspects of menopause should do.

It is with immense gratitude that I recommend Maria. Having her as my trainer over the years was a true gift, especially during the challenging phase of menopause. Maria's profound understanding and specialized expertise in assisting women through their menopausal stages proved invaluable to my physical and mental well-being. It wasn't just about the fitness routines; it was her unique blend of neuroplasticity techniques and strength-building exercises that truly set her approach apart. I genuinely believe that Maria is a significant and transformative force in our community. I eagerly anticipate seeing her extend her wisdom to an even broader audience, and I wholeheartedly believe that many others will benefit from her guidance as I have.
After 10+ years working out my body and psyche with Maria, I know beyond the shadow of a doubt that she wakes up in the middle of the night just to dream up something unexpected and exciting to spring on her clients. Thus, I have never been bored, always been inspired and never felt alone during my transition to menopause. If you’re over empty promises of eternal youth and suspect that radically fit aging might be more interesting, you’re correct! Reach out to Maria. You won’t be sorry.
Maria is simply THE BEST!!!! I was lucky enough to stumble upon her at a time in my life when I never thought having a personal trainer was for me. I’d always been a fitness class at the gym kind of person. On a whim I tried her out and quickly realized what I’d been missing. The personal attention to my body, goals, and moment in life has proven essential. She’s helped me navigate getting in the best shape of my life, pregnancy, just doing the minimum for health and sanity as I balanced life, and recently getting back into shape at a social distance. Her passion for fitness meets you where you are and keeps it EXCITING AND FUN! I hated lifting weights until I met Maria.
Without a doubt, Dr. Maria Luque is one of the professionals I trust the most when it comes to my health and wellness. Two years ago as a mom to a then 18-month baby, I was suffering with a lot a back pain that was making mothering and lifting my baby almost impossible. After months of physical therapy, my physical therapist basically shrugged his shoulders and said he didn't know why I wasn't getting better. I knew I needed something different, and after a good amount of research, I found Dr. Maria. Within a month, my back pain was gone, and I can say that after 2 years of working 2-3 times a week with Dr. Maria, I am stronger now at 42 years old than I've ever been in my life, and I no longer have ongoing pain. Dr. Maria is one of those rare health and fitness professionals that combines extensive education with care, kindness and respect for what a woman needs as they get older. I trust her completely and know that she has my best health in mind each and every time we meet.
Dr. Maria is a steward of information EVERY WOMAN should know about and learn. You are never too young... or old to understand your body and learn positive and empowering ways of staying strong, mentally and physically, through all stages of life. Not only is this stuff vitally important, Dr. Maria makes it fun and enjoyable. Just try not to laugh when you are around her!
It is because of Dr. Maria that at 56 years of age, I'm in the best shape of my life. The depth of her knowledge is incredible. I felt informed, prepared, and supported through all stages of my menopause. None of it took me by surprise or was even upsetting because Dr. Luque's approach is based on science and rejects the fiction of believing that women are no longer vital and resigned to decline. I'm so grateful to have found her and consider her a dear friend. ... My advice is to begin your journey with her as soon as possible and expect the best because that's what you'll get.
Maria is the absolute best! She is an incredibly creative and supportive coach. Her workouts are always challenging and interesting - I never get bored - and I easily get bored. But even more importantly, she is a compassionate champion who listens, is open to feedback, and challenges me to keep moving forward. I came to Maria a couple years post-menopause after having a coach who was really harsh and fought & judged me every step of the way. That was really hard and actually made me feel pretty terrible about myself. But with Maria - it has been the total opposite. She brings humour, and understanding to all your ups and downs. Not only do I feel seen, but I feel stronger than ever. Thank you Maria!
