Maria Cronk

I live in Kingston with my husband of 28 years and we have three beautiful grownup daughters. Together with my mother and brother we own three boutiques, Fancy That, Roundstone and Limestone and Ivy. I run the downtown stores and have been there for the last 25 years. I started teaching fitness 25 years ago and definitely have a love for the wider spectrum of fitness. I teach step, spinning, body sculpt, and Pilates. I love educating people about the importance of being fit as we get older. I also enjoy fitness with my family and we have done many running races and triathlons together and it is wonderful to spend time with them as we work out. I love the triathlon community in Kingston and the confidence it brings to many individuals. I love teaching Pilates since it is the basic foundation to building a strong and healthy core. I think having a strong core makes a happy and healthy body.
