What our Clients are Saying...

Kathy Thacker Weight Loss

Take Control Of Cravings, Sugar, Carb Addiction

“At 55 y/o my joints were aching, my diet wasn’t working anymore. First, Maria taught me that weight loss is physical and mental. She pushed me to do things I’d have never done on my own. She saw potential in me and wanted me to see it too. I lost 28.4 lbs in her 90-day Blood Sugar Program. Maria also taught me to love myself more and put myself first. It’s not always easy, but I’ve realized that I’m worth it. She’s truly my life-saving coach.”–Kathy Thacker

An Integrative Healing Approach Post Quadruple Bypass

“We met 2 weeks before my quadruple bypass. We talked about nutrition before/post the surgery. God got me home and Maria came over 2 days after. We started with stretches and progressed from there. In 6.5 months, Maria got me ready to climb a 12,000-foot mountain! Maria, as a health coach, I think it’s hard to find someone that is caring, wants that success for you and is able to give you all the tools to succeed.” — Brian Mendel

Change Your Life By Discovering Yourself

“Maria will help you change your life! She helped me change mine and was an incredible motivator, listener, and coach. I discovered and reversed why I comforted myself with food and unhealthy behaviors. I lost 30 lbs and have kept it off with the new habits, but more important than the weight loss, I have gained an entirely new appreciation for myself and a confidence that has improved many aspects of my life.” — Mary Severs

Are You Sabotaging Your Weight Loss Efforts? Listen to Kathy’s Story

Weight loss and fat loss are challenging objectives to achieve and sustain for many people, especially for those who have lost and gained weight.

Hola, I am Maria Horstmann!

You’ve come across this page because at one point you were me. I struggled with yo-yo dieting, sugar addiction, prediabetes, G.I. issues, and eating disorder until my late 30s. I didn’t know or understood how my choices and unhealthy habits were affecting me.

Much like you, I wanted to break the cycle. One day, I sat down and had a come-to-Jesus-moment. It was time to become a better version of myself. It worked!

Before I left my finance career to start my practice, I had fallen in love with how changing my nutrition, exercise, stress, sleep, and mindset had positively impacted blood sugar, insulin, and fitness.

After seeing how my health, energy, and life had changed, I knew my purpose was to share this knowledge. My fascination grew exponentially when I started my training in, and application of, Nutritional Endocrinology, Blood Chemistry, and Nutrigenomics.

Our bodies are perfect machines!!!

Everybody should wake up energized to pursue exciting challenges and dreams in their lives while feeling happy in their own skin! Making a difference in someone’s life and helping them transform challenges into opportunities of growth is what gets me up in the morning.

If you’re struggling, I want you to know that you’re not alone. You don’t have to sacrifice your social life and quality of life. What you need is a foundation. Picture yourself 1,3, 5 years from now on your current path, and 1,3,5 years when you fully commit to changing your lifestyle. Who would you rather be?

Heck, I’m not perfect. Who is it? I except myself and my clients to do the best, that’s it. The path of wellness is a MARATHON, not a sprint. The way we react to life curveballs is key to happiness. Our health and energy impact that ability. What I do possess is greater understanding, confidence, and control over my life. I want to help you be/feel the same. I want to help you make better choices so you feel empowered daily.

If you’re ready to take back control of your health, get to the root cause of your unsuccessful programs, manage life stressors, and create space for growth so you live independently and age gracefully, I want to meet with you. Let’s make a personalized plan for you to achieve your wellness goals. I can’t wait to be a part of your success story.
