Maria’s Wellness Warrior Story: A Complete Lifestyle Change For Better Health

Wellness Warrior

Maria Horstmann, owner and founder of Be Fab – Be You LLC, empowers busy professionals to take a holistic approach to health to reclaim their energy, lose weight, and get fit. Her mission is to elevate clients’ energy and focus so that they can be more successful at work and at life. With her coaching, her clients become healthier, happier, and more productive.

When Maria tailors her training or wellness program for you, she factors in your fitness level, goals, and commitment to change. As a health coach, she makes the science behind weight loss easy to understand so you can get beyond losing the same 10 lbs. over and over. And she helps you learn which foods will serve you best. As a personal trainer, she designs workouts that get your heart rate up, modifies exercises to prevent injuries, and corrects your form when something is off so that you can optimize results. As a blood sugar/insulin resistance coach, she helps you get your blood sugar under control so that you can say “goodbye” to cravings and fatigue—and “hello” to more energy.

Maria excels at listening closely and is quick to spot when you get in your own way. Besides providing accountability and tools to live a healthier life, she supports you each step of the way by helping you work on mindset, clearing “debris” that blocks progress, and motivating you to push to the next level.

Maria knows what it’s like to not take care of yourself. She herself was once so highly addicted to sugar that she would drink condensed milk out of the can. She was prediabetic. Vegetables never landed on her plate. Nor did healthy fats. She suffered from chronic digestive and intestinal tract issues. After experimenting with different diets and digging deep into the research, Maria has learned how to make more thoughtful food choices, use self-healing to nip problems in the bud, and exercise regularly to achieve optimal health. “If I was able to do it, you can as well,” she says.

Maria has trained with the National Academy of Sports Medicine, Institute of Nutritional Endocrinology, Metabolic Healing, and the Corporate Health & Wellness Association. She has earned certifications in personal training, nutrition, and insulin resistance coaching. Maria worked 20+ years in finance before following her passion for health, wellness, and fitness. She holds an MBA from Emory University. Volleyball, nature hikes, and bungee jumping are among many physical activities and sports she enjoys in her free time. “Living life with joy, energy, and health,” says Maria, “is the best gift you can give yourself.”
