About Maria Krick Fitness

Welcome to Maria Krick Fitness Coaching

As a Nutrition Coach and Personal Trainer/Pilates instructor with over 10-years of experience, Maria brings a wealth of health and fitness knowledge to the table with her fitness coaching programs. Maria worked for over two years at the largest online nutrition company in the world, mentoring thousands of women and developing coaching approaches that produced tangible results. Through her mentorship, Maria refined her coaching approach to mental and physical training, building on her accumulated training to make a difference in people’s lives.

Born in Athens, Greece, Maria spent the first few years of her childhood toggling between Greece and the United States.

Always realising a love of athletics, Maria continued to work in office roles, making her way up the chain, until her father died in 2006. Inspiring self reflection, Maria quit smoking, started a family, decided to face her fears head on, and became a personal trainer.

After the premature birth of her son, postnatal depression, financial woes, and personal obsession with leanness that led to a collapse at the gym, Maria decided to get out ahead of her health and signed for coaching and transformed her life.

Today, Maria’s number one passion is to build women’s confidence by focusing on essentials that are conducive to an inner and outer transformation. Using technology to make her services accessible to any woman looking to make a change, Maria provides real, authentic, and expert guidance that is customised to the client, with ongoing support and sustained encouragement needed to make lasting changes.

No gaps. No gimmicks. No false promises.

Just personal, accessible, and one-on-one support from an educated and experienced personal training and nutrition coach, made available to women throughout the world.
