Maria Winans Before Kickboxing Has Transformed Me

Maria Winans, vice president of marketing, Parkland, Florida
LOST: 20 pounds in four months
FAVORITE HEALTHY SNACK: I keep raw almonds and cashews in my purse. My corporate career requires a lot of travel; nuts are my healthy go-to if I get hungry on a plane or in the middle of a meeting.

FAVORITE WORKOUT: Kickboxing has completely transformed my body and calmed my mind. If I have a stressful day, hitting the bag is a tension reliever. When I'm done, I can go home and be a better mom.
FIT TIP: It's about work/life balance. Your exercise routine has to be a priority too. I treat my workout just like any other appointment on my calendar and get it done. When I exercise, I'm more effective and productive at work and at home.
