Today we’d like to introduce you to Maria A Petit.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Former Commercial Director, Motorola Ltd, Europe, Middle East & Africa reaching this position before my 30th birthday, I left totally burnt out in 2009. Although I always had a passion for fitness and wellness, I’m an IFPA Advanced Personal Trainer and AFFA Certified Group Exercise Instructor, I had a wake-up call in 2008 after a sequence of exams determined my biological age at 61 years old?!! Stress, travel, crap meals on the go, sleep deprivation topped off with excessive exercise (at the time I was working 14+ hr days, training for the New York City Marathon, playing Polo and always on the road) had taken a toll on my mind, body, and soul. I left the corporate world for what I had “planned” as 1-year sabbatical but which ultimately kick-started my life down a road of self-discovery, minimalism (today my worldly belongings are packed into 2 suitcases) and reconnecting with Nature.
Has it been a smooth road?
It’s been a rollercoaster! Most recently, my life partner had a severe paragliding accident while we were traveling in Austria. Our lives were instantly turned upside down. I could have never imagined how challenging it would be for us all. We have both grown immensely in gratitude, presence, and patience.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with MSPETIT | Performance | Lifestyle | Wellness | COACH – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
I’m a certified ‘Bulletproof’ Human Potential Coach. I coach clients online from all over the world. Besides my specific in-depth knowledge on the Bulletproof Diet and Intermittent-Fasting, which some clients specifically hunt me down for, I also coach clients on other aspects of their work and life. Anything from work/life balance to transitions and/or initiating new or breaking old habits. I support my clients to be the best version of themselves, hence the term “Performance” Coaching. Through our sessions, I hold a space of presence for the client and empower them to come to their own insights. I use breathing techniques sometimes to bring the client to the present moment and “arrive’ in the session. Often clients are leading a pretty stressful life and the relaxation and De-Stress they experience from the breathing techniques during the sessions is an appeal on its own. I also use breathing techniques to help the client reconnect with their core values and the motivation driver behind the ‘issue’ they want to explore during the session. Every coaching session is a spontaneous happening and thus, customized at the moment to meet the needs of the client. The opening questions are “what would you like to focus on during your session today?” The client sets the agenda and from there the session spontaneously unravels.
Do you feel like our city is a good place for businesses like yours? If someone was just starting out, would you recommend them starting out here? If not, what can our city do to improve?
Yes, there is definitely a demand for Wellness, Lifestyle & Performance Coaches in Miami. It’s a place with exuberant energy where people are constantly on the go, so having this time with a personal coach to reevaluate their direction in life is indispensable.
