About The Worx By Maia

Maia is proud to be a Filipina Woman. Born in the Philippines and raised in a traditional family, she combated traditional feminine stereotypes. She often found herself defying the odds and pushing her parents' and grandparents' limits as she secretly signed up for sport after sport. The biggest "uh-oh" incident was when she signed up for the wrestling team and was exposed when she made the nightly news. Grandma wasn't too happy to see little Maia in her singlet wrestling boys. Over time, her parents saw Maia's will and, eventually, gave in and became Maia's best supporters.
Maia started her career as a middle school teacher. Making History come alive was a challenge Maia took on daily. Years after leaving her class, her kids may not know who said, "Without struggle, there is no progress," but they will know the value of hard work and integrity and how it impacted them.
This kind of attitude she applied easily to her workouts. It's not just about sweating or doing some jumping jacks... it's about learning about the depth of the human spirit and how hard one will push to get their goals. Lastly, it's about the team working towards a shared goal!
Six months before Maia's wedding in 2009, Maia realized that she constanty gave 100% to her job and she forgot herself. It was time for a change starting with losing 25lbs. It was time to put HERSELF first! Plugging into some great programs and the right kind of support, Maia was able to dance the night away in her best shape ever. Now, it's her mission to remind people of the importance of taking time for them because they deserve it!
As a fitness instructor, Maia pulls from her experience from being a high school and college athlete, a middle school teacher, a 2 time state champion rugby coach, and a graduate of the top home workout programs such as P90X, Insanity and Brazillian Buttlift. Through her classes, Maia works on her mission to add value to others by creating an environment where people do their best and encourage each other to reach their fullest potential.
Three strong beliefs drive Maia. First, she is a WorX in Progress. Her learning never stops. One of her daily disciplines, along with working out, is reading/listening to the great WorX from top leaders: Zig Ziglar, Budda, John Maxwell, Toni Robbins and a fellow friend, Chris Batu. Second, everyone is destined for greatness! Maia's speciality is believing in you and reminding you of your worth. Lastly, everything she wants in life will happen if she helps enough people get what they want. Hence, her passion for helping YOU get what you YOU want.
