Maria Cristina is a lifelong Catholic. Since childhood, her faith has been the pinnacle of her life, one with a specially strong devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Her beautiful, nearly 40-year long marriage to Luis Girardot gave her the gift of her three children: Andres, Javier and Katherine. As a devoted wife and mother, Maria Cristina developed an interest for all things health, eventually growing into a passion most notably after her kids transitioned into adulthood.
In 2010, Maria Cristina started her career in Fitness, becoming an AFAA (NASM) Certified Personal Trainer and Group Exercise instructor. She has provided Fitness Instruction Services to groups in several gyms as well as local community centers and homes.
It was in 2019 that her daughter Katherine introduced her SoulCore. After learning more about SoulCore and its mission, she felt called to bring it to both English and Spanish speaking Catholics in the Boca Raton Area. As an active member of Saint Jude Parish in Boca Raton, FL, Maria Cristina feels blessed for finding Soulcore as a way to help her community take care of and engage the physical body while praising Our Lord through a deep veneration of the most beautiful and most blessed Virgin Mary through the Holy Rosary.
