Maria is an awesome intstructor, coach, motivator and all around person!! She is always so positive and willing to help others. I love taking her Body Step class, she makes it so fun that you don't mind almost killing yourself for an hour! She truly does make a difference in the lives of everyone she meets!!

I love Maria! I love her classes, her energy and her personality! I met Maria several years ago and loved her from the beginning but boy how she has grown! Maria is an inspiration for women ( and everyone) of ALL ages and is so knowledgable and most importantly continues to learn and improve for the masses. I wish I could take more classes from Maria than I do, she is defintely my fav!

Listen, learn and love it!!! It has been so much of a pleasure over the years to have Maria at American Family Fitness. I have been a fitness enthusiast for many years. Not only is Maria energetic and enthusiastic, she is pretty darn smart too. This woman knows what she is doing when it comes to fitness and lifestyle. She will not lead you to diets that will ultimately be counter productive in the long run. She keeps it real and fun. That is energizing!!

Jim, thank you and all the instructors love seeing you in class because you walk in the door with a smile no matter how your day has gone. Thank you for making our jobs easier!

I consider myself a very demanding person when it comes to commitment with an activity or profession and very demanding when it comes to choosing my personal role models. Maria Beall has been in my life one of those role models that I have carefully chosen to inspire me to bring out of me the inner strength, beauty and confidence that I struggle to get back after my last pregnancy. Out of many of the classes I assist to, I make hers a priority simply because I find the best combination of enthusiasm, beauty, determination, hard work and fun! She constantly makes me laugh while my body screams pain through the exercises! Her character inspires confidence and her inspiration and motivation has brought lasting success into my life. Maria Beall believes what she says and lives what she says. She is truly a leader and has had a HUGE impact in the last 4 years of my life and more to come. Thank you Maria!!

Nearly two years ago, I joined American Family Fitness looking to get into better shape. For the first two months, I idly swam about, did some occasional elliptical, and took an occasional class. In other words, I didn't really do anything. Then I took my first Sh'bam class with Maria. From the moment it started, I noticed Maria's energy and enthusiasm, and suddenly, I was all in. She put a fire under my butt that nobody else could, and suddenly I was doing multiple classes a day, several days a week. And Maria doesn't just excel in Sh'bam. I've had the immense pleasure of taking her classes in Body Pump, Body Step, 30-Minute Abs, and more. Not only do I consider Maria a role model, I consider her a friend. If I could just get Maria to be at my door every morning to get me going, I'd be the fittest, happiest man alive. :-)

Christopher, you always make me laugh!!! And I need to see you MORE!!!!!! So, your assignment from now on is that you have to come to at least one of my classes per week or the fitness police will come get you....love you!!!
