Certified Personal Trainers

Maria Agbaba

Fitness was always my passion! I was a gymnast for over ten years. While in college, I was working as a cheerleader for a Russian women's basketball team. Then in 2015, I became a personal fitness trainer. My secret to a healthy, strong, and fit body is implementing a variety of training methods into the workout regimen. I teach strength and high-intensity interval training because I believe that these are the best tools to build and maintain lean muscle mass which is crucial for optimal body composition and overall well being. As a Yoga instructor, I encourage the practitioners to improve their mobility and focus on the present moment by guiding the body to move in a mindful and self-controlled manner. I always pay extra attention to the proper form, deep breathing, and mind-body connection. After each session, I want people to move closer to their fitness goals and feel more energized, motivated, and happy!

Certified Specialities: I have worked with people of all ages, but have specialized more in the elderly population. In addition to having a focus on mobility and weight loss.

Motto: “Don’t compare your chapter one to someone else's chapter thirty.”

10 Steps To Fitness Success
 

 Talk to your doctor

Get a simple check-up and a talk with  your doctor about starting a fitness regime. They can remind you of things to pay attention to, situations to avoid, and can give you up-to-date info on your labworks and vitals. 

 Be patient with yourself

Remember, Rome wasn't built in a day. Don't get impatient with the small changes happening as you travel through your fitness journey. A smart workout is one that is also kind to your body along the way. 

 Set and write down your "SMART" fitness goals

S= Specific (Write down details; like "how much" or how long")

MMeasurable (How will you know when you've reached your goals)

A= Attainable (Be realistic and don't set goals too aggressively)

RRewards (Attach a reward to each goal - see #10 below)

TTimely (Set specic dates for accomplishing goals)

 

 Join the right Gym for you

Be honest with yourself with where you feel comfortable.  At Edison's Smart Fitness, we strive to create a comfortable environment with great equipment and 24-7 access, 365 days a year. 

 Develop a fitness plan

When you start with Edison's Smart Fitness, one of our certified trainers will guide you through a thorough orientation and interview, where you will go over your fitness goals and desires. Together you can develop a plan of exercises, use of equipment, and guidelines to help you reach your goal, as well as key metrics to measure along the way.

 Get up and go....... to the Gym

Try to find the optimal time for you to fit your workout in.  Some people like to do it first thing in the morning so they accomplish something at the beginning of their day. Others feel their energy peak at mid-day, and that's the best time. Then there are the night owls. Having a gym open at your optimal time means there's one less excuse to missing a workout.

 Measure and assess your progress

When you developed your fitness plan, it was important to include metrics that you plan to measure. It may be cholesterol levels, weight, stamina, personal energy levels, or simply just how your clothes fit. Paying attention to these metrics will encourage you as well. 

 Mix it up

Be sure to keep your workouts fresh and challenging. This is important in many ways; it will eliminate boredom, help avoid overuse injuries, keeps muscles challenged and engages different muscles, and may even help you find new classes or machines that you really enjoy. 

 Workout with a friend

Edison's Smart Fitness is a friendly neighborhood Fitness Center. It's a good place to meet your neighbors and friends and work out together, anytime. The social activity will help encourage you to keep going, and make your workouts more fun. 

10  Reward yourself

As you are paying attention to your measurable goals, be sure to reward yourself when you achieve one of them. Your reward can even be something that is tied to your fitness: new workout clothes, an activity tracker, or a fun active adventure like kayaking, hiking, or a new bicycle.
