More About Dr Maria Luque
My name is Dr. Maria Luque. After serving in the U.S. Air Force, where I served as a Fitness Program Manager, I first completed an M.S. in health education and then a Ph.D. in health sciences. When it came time to write my dissertation (2010), I had to pick a topic and decided on menopause. Why? Because many of my clients and friends were going through menopause and finding information seemed to be very difficult. With my extensive fitness background, this was a perfect opportunity to research how physical activity influences quality of life during perimenopause. At that point, I didn't realize that this step would change the focus of my career, but after immersing myself in this topic, I knew this was what I wanted to do. To help other fitness professionals become more knowledgeable in working with menopausal clients, I created a course called Menopausal Fitness: Training the Menopausal Client, which is a NASM, AFAA, and ACE- accredited continuing education course for fitness professionals. I'm a lifelong learner and love teaching, which is why I also teach a variety of graduate and undergraduate health science courses at the College of Health and Human Services at Trident University International and write about menopause and other fitness-related topics for various publications.
