In high school, Maricarmen (MC) Hernandez participated and excelled in team sports and upon graduation, fell in love with lifting weights and regularly going to the gym. She graduated with a BA in business administration and management and a minor in biology from Florida International University.
After a long career in hospitality, marketing and the music business, Hernandez discovered that her true passion was fitness.
Hernandez is currently NASM-certified in personal training, group personal training and nutrition, and is a Dolce Diet certified nutrition coach. She is also a natural bikini fitness competitor and competes in the NGA League.
Hernandez leads us through her morning routine, from her breakfast to taking the time to self-reflect and mediate. She is the queen of living in the moment, so we look to her for advice on how to start the day off right.
