I HAD TO SHARE THIS WITH EVERYONE.. My trainer- goddess of the ocean and work out is my dear friend Maria Souza, “owner of Maui’s only Stand-up Paddle School”.

Maria is a very well know water woman, personal trainer and all around athlete. I can count on my good friend Maria to get down on me when I do something that’s unhealthy for me. If I crack my neck, eat or drink things that are not healthy for me SHE’S ALL OVER MY BUTT. I enjoy a damn coke once in awhile. What’s the harm in drinking a coke now and then?

I started working out today and it’s been several months. I can tell you it felt really good to get back into it even though I know I’m going to be getting sore. My trainer.. is the one and only bad ass, Maria Souza. How lucky am I to work out with this chick… Lucky…. very lucky… I know I am going to be in good shape soon with her all over me, helping me. I can’t wait to see myself in two months. By the way, if your looking for someone to train you, beginner or an experienced athlete, Maria’s your woman.
check out her

I about to share some cool info that I stole from Maria’s site. It really will make you think twice about drinking a coke.
