Maria Rodriguez is a powerlifter and a strength and conditioning coach. She coaches individuals remotely on a sliding scale and personal trains at all levels. Maria has zero tolerance for bigotry, homophobia, sexism, transphobia, Islamophobia, xenophobia, fatphobia, and everything that encapsulates diet culture.
Maria aims to make training more accessible for the LGBTQ+ community at her gym and offers an inclusive space on Friday nights to lift. She coaches at the local homeless shelter twice per week to help them in their own recoveries and to feel better-abled in their own bodies. She also teaches a monthly yoga class with a sliding scale drop-in that donates the funds to a local organization that aligns with her values. This isn't your traditional yoga class, Maria plays hip hop and hosts it in the evening as an act of self-preservation.
