#2: Work Off Your Holiday Bulge with Maria Muscle
Had a little too much turkey or pumpkin pie over the holidays? Get back into shape for the New Year with Fitness Advocate and founding member of the Rollettes dance team Maria "Muscle" Rabaino!
As is common after a spinal cord injury, Maria says she gained some weight soon after her accident. She recalls eventually not being able to wear her jeans anymore, transferring became more difficult and, at some point, she realized that she'd gained more weight than she'd thought.
"Nothing specific happened, but I remember waking up one day with a desire to be healthier and live a healthier life," Maria explains.
It was time, Maria decided, that she take control of her own health. She joined an Instagram fitness challenge for accountability and, although she didn't win, she says it was just what she needed to really commit to her personal fitness. The challenge motivated her to try new workouts and she began feeling better in no time. She even bought a virtual, customized workout and nutrition plan and has seen great results.
Today, Maria Muscle leads a whole community of wheelchair users through everyday workouts on her social media pages, and you can take part too!
