I have been working with Mariela as my personal trainer for several months now. I have had many trainers in the past and Mariela is by far the best I have experienced. She is attentive, motivating, encouraging, and I can tell that she really knows what she is doing and she truly cares about your goals and success. I was never able to reach my goal weight until I started working with Mariela. I was overweight when I began her program, now just after 5 months I am at my goal weight. She seemed to know exactly what I needed to do in order to lose the weight, get toned, and keep it off. She also gave me nutritional advice to help keep me on track. I loved how she was willing to come to my house for a workout, meet me at a nearby park, or invite me to her personal studio once it got hot outside.
