"Always be looking for that which you do well and that which you love doing and when you find these two things together - Man you got it."

Hello. I'm Maria Schuba, a Certified Personal Trainer, a Pre and Postnatal Fitness Specialist and a Pregnancy and Postpartum Athleticism Coach. I'm mom to 2 little monkeys ages 10 and 12, and we're always on the go adventuring and keeping active. I'm an avid skier, hiker, gym-goer, fitness instructor and lover of the outdoors.
I've been instructing fitness classes and boot camps for women since 2011 through my previous business, Revelation Fitness. More recently I've become certified as a pre and postnatal fitness specialist and a pregnancy and postpartum athleticism coach, a niche and focus I am very passionate of.
I specialize in safe and effective personal training and fitness for prenatal and postnatal women.
I coach and train women on how an active life, pre and post baby, can relate to an easier pregnancy, delivery and recovery.
I help women gain strength, build confidence and get back to doing what they love.
I believe exercise should be fun. I don't believe exercise is a form of punishment for something that you ate or because of the vacation you just took. I believe in everything in moderation. Even moderation.
My Core Value
I believe we need to move in order to live our life the way we want. I exercise so I can ski down a bump run with my kids, run a mud-run with my husband and hike into the backcountry with my girlfriends. I exercise because I want to continue to do these things for the next 20-30 years. I believe you shouldn't have to punish yourself with exercise because you had a weekend 'off your plan.' I believe if you can't see yourself doing what you're doing (i.e., eating and exercising) next month or next year, then it's not sustainable. It's not real life.
I have always been active. I played sports growing up and then went from university straight to living in the mountains. The movement options were endless! Most of my free time was spent hiking, skiing and biking. After a move to the city and my 2 children were born it was harder to find the time to get to do the things that I love. When the days of diapers and sippy cups were over, I finally got back to doing somethings that I loved and fitness was at the top.
I became certified as a personal trainer. It wasn't until my postnatal fitness specialist course that I became passionate about helping women get through pregnancy and postpartum, safely. It's such an amazing time of our lives that I'm grateful to be a part of. I'm excited to help women heal their postpartum bodies to get back to doing they things that they love.
Through my prenatal and postnatal fitness classes and personal training, you will gain confidence and strength with a group of supportive and fun women.
