Inspirational Journeys

“My journey into the health and fitness industry started long before I became a Health Coach and Personal Trainer.”

“At the age of 25, I began having symptoms of paralysis from the neck down that rapidly progressed over a period of a day leading to total immobility with the exception of my arms. After being admitted into the hospital, and many tests later, I was diagnosed with a rare neurological condition called Transverse Myelitis that affects the nerve cells of the spinal cord leading to permanent paralysis and, in rare occasions, death from an inability to breathe. My thoughts of the unknown were rampant at this point. When your mind is sharp and clear, yet you have no control of your body, it requires a strong will and a deep faith to get you through it. I decided I wasn’t going to ‘give up’. I ‘exercised’ in my bed by moving my legs with my arms, prayed every day, and was determined I would walk again. Three weeks later, I walked out of the hospital. I believe it was Divine intervention and my own determination that allowed me to do that. It was that day that changed the way I looked at health and ‘life’. I wanted to make a difference, but wasn’t sure what that would be. Fast forward to today, and I have been a Health Coach and Personal Trainer for over 20 years teaching people how to live a life of health and vitality – doing what I LOVE!

That experience changed my life forever, and I am grateful for it!”

“My love for exercise has always been a part of my life; however, the path that has led me to Core Fit has been paved with bumps, pot holes, roundabouts, and roadblocks until, finally, a stream of light.”

“My love for exercise has always been a part of my life; however, the path that has led me to Core Fit has been paved with bumps, pot holes, roundabouts, and roadblocks until, finally, a stream of light. It’s human nature to assume that a person’s current health has always been who they are, but, for me, that’s not the case. I have spent most of my life struggling with my weight and being on the heavier side.

Some of my reasons or roadblocks were surgeries (shattered leg, torn shoulder, thyroidectomy (thyroid cancer) or appendectomy, and, for most women, pregnancies. Despite those roadblocks, I have been able to tackle and regain my strength through strength training and a lot of running or walking. Hills, mountains and, sometimes, downward sprints weren’t easy or always enjoyable, but over time the love of health and fitness, allowed me to conquer some of my biggest challenges and even failures. My life still presents many obstacles, but I choose to enjoy my healthy and capable body through movement, exercise, and healthy habits with my family, and in my job.”

“Core Fit Studio literally saved my life.”

“Before I started working with Maria, the Owner of Core Fit, I was using a cane and taking 9 medications to control my blood pressure, cholesterol, anxiety and other things. After just four months of going through their cleaning eating program, and incorporating functional fitness, I lost 50lbs and was able to reduce my medications to only needing one for my thyroid. Since then, I’ve lost an additional 20lbs, and I’m more mobile than ever. The things I can do now physically are amazing. I never would have thought it was possible until I discovered Core Fit Studio. It truly has saved my life and changed the quality of my life in so many areas. Thank you Core Fit Studio.”

“Core Fit Studio in Lehi has been a game changer for me.”

“Core Fit Studio in Lehi has been a game changer for me. Before I met Maria, the owner of Core Fit, I was struggling with my health and fitness. I went through physical challenges that compromised my immune system, and was unable to perform at my best with my own training including running. When I joined Core Fit, I was taught about functional fitness focusing on the core with every movement. It literally redefined my body and made me stronger. I was able to put on muscle that I hadn’t been able to accomplish for years. Above all, I felt strong. And, I finally felt healthy. Core Fit Studio took my fitness to the next level. I saw results in a very short period of time. Between learning how to eat clean and training functionally, I have met and exceeded my fitness goals. Thank you Core Fit Studio for changing my life!”

“Growing up, I was not taught healthy eating habits and the importance of exercise.”

“Growing up, I was not taught healthy eating habits and the importance of exercise. Exercise was not something I ever wanted to do. I did not have any motivation for it, ever. It hurt! It was too hard. On top of that, I am also an emotional eater. Not a good combo. I wanted to eat healthy. I wanted to exercise. I wanted to set and accomplish healthy goals. But my commitment would slack, and I would fall back into old habits over and over again. My self-esteem suffered as I wasn’t able to stick to my goals. Goal setting is one thing, accomplishing those goals seemed unobtainable.  It all starts with a desire and continued effort. I needed the right aids by my side to give me the success I needed.

My experience with Core Fit started in March of 2019. As I started, it helped me greatly to have accountability to someone other than myself, and a workout buddy. I joined Maria’s Healthy Eating Challenge and would come to the gym with my sister Amy. Maria helped me understand nutrition more clearly, and would give me guidance with meals and exercises.

I have lost 25lbs and hope to continue on this path!  With consistency in nutrition and exercise my desire grew and so did my self-esteem.  I began to see changes in myself and feel myself becoming stronger. I’m not perfect at it by any means, but I know what I am capable of now! “

“We did it!!!!!!!”

“30 days of clean eating with no gluten, no dairy, very minimal sugar and caffeine, no artificial sweeteners except stevia and Monkfruit, and lots of veggies and only high quality meat. I lost 10 pounds and mike lost 20. I wish the weight came off faster for me like it does for Mike, but grateful for the trend I’m on. I thought it would be hard to give up gluten and dairy but it really wasn’t a big deal. We both feel great and Mike is cured of his energy drink addiction. I’m excited to see what we can do in another 30 days!  Thank you to Maria Hubscher for all your help and encouragement and Ali Garbero for introducing us to her.”

“After having my second child, I tried exercising at home. I would be focused for about two weeks then I would lose interest and find something else to do with my time.”

“After having my second child, I tried exercising at home. I would be focused for about two weeks then I would lose interest and find something else to do with my time. I continued on this cycle over and over again. It was self-sabotaging. I was never able to see any real results that I could feel good about. I lacked motivation and consistency.

That all changed when I was introduced to Core Fit Studio almost eight months ago. Since joining, taking classes, and learning how to train through the core, I have lost nearly 20lbs. What I noticed the most is an increase in my strength and endurance as well as my muscle definition. And, my posture has really improved.

I still have moments when I just want to stay in bed and not exercise, but I am so happy when I do. I feel better. Core Fit has been a positive addition to my life.”
