Maria Restrepo (CPT)


Maria Restrepo, a NASM-certified personal trainer, embodies a genuine passion for fitness and a dedication to enhancing the health and well-being of her clients. Leveraging her academic background in Kinesiology and extensive practical experience, Maria has been helping individuals achieve their fitness goals in the sunny state of Florida.

Born and raised in Miami, Maria’s love for fitness became evident at an early age. Her natural inclination towards sports and an active lifestyle fueled her interest in understanding the science behind human movement. Consequently, she pursued a degree in Kinesiology at the University of Miami, where she delved deep into the principles of human body mechanics, exercise physiology, and biomechanics.

Following graduation, Maria secured her certification as a personal trainer from the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM), one of the most recognized and respected fitness certification bodies. She began her career working with clients in various local gyms in Miami, honing her skills, understanding client needs, and mastering the art of personalized fitness coaching.

As her experience grew, Maria decided to transition into private practice. She now caters to an extensive list of personal clients across Central Florida. Unlike many other trainers, Maria has an unconventional setup – she trains all her clients from her personal home gym. Her in-depth knowledge of gym equipment and knack for home gym design has enabled her to create a highly efficient and personalized training environment.

In addition to her client work, Maria has taken her expertise online with her role at FitDominium. Here, she uses her knowledge and skills to ensure that accurate, helpful, and up-to-date fitness information is available to the broader public. Maria plays a crucial role in developing exercise guides and providing insight into equipment reviews and breakdowns. Her insights are rooted in both her academic grounding and real-world experience, ensuring that the fitness advice given is reliable, applicable, and most importantly, safe.

Her impressive track record of client transformations, backed by her professional credentials, and her unique approach to personal training make Maria a significant asset to our team at FitDominium. We are confident that her contributions will greatly enrich the quality of our content and help our audience on their journey to optimal health and fitness. Maria is excited to continue sharing her expertise and helping individuals discover the benefits of a healthy, active lifestyle.
