Our Studio


The WorX began just as a bootcamp: high energy, high intensity, and highly motivational. As Maia’s love and care for her bootcampers grew, it changed into a path of empowerment for her and for those who attended her classes. Call it an evolution of group exercise; call it a synergy of body, mind, and heart; call it whatever you want, but the bottom line is that it is one of the best things you can do for you.

A main part that distinguishes the WorX is the community. Maia’s 6 years of experience as a Recreational Camp Director, High School Rugby Coach and Middle School Lead Teacher allows her to transform every workout into a self and team building workout. Maia develops a strong understanding of the company’s and students’ goals and reasons for her coming to ensure that she provides a quality program.

The truth is that oftentimes our busy lives challenge the best of us to do the right thing. Also, our environment and the people we surround ourselves with impact our decisions. That’s why at the WorX you find yourself with people who believe in you NO MATTER WHAT.

Every person is a WorX in Progress. Being a part of the WorX gives you the confidence boost you need, the words you deserve to hear, and the will to make things happen.One caveat: all this happens only if you are ready.Ask yourself… am I ready to put ‘me’ first???? Are you ready to get inspired and move forward with your fitness and even your lifetime goals?

After my experience working with Coach Chris, co-owner of Onyx, I knew partnering the Worx with Onyx for athletic training would help our athletes realize their greatest potential!

ONYX is more than just a performance facility, they view their services and products as an opportunity for CHANGE! Their world-class trainers have experience working with young athletes, working professionals, and world-class athletes, to achieve and exceed their goals both on and off the field.

Why Onyx at The WorX by Maia?

After my 3rd baby being almost 10 lbs, my body was no longer functional. Baby Emmet’s weight worsened an old rugby hip injury and led to my hip dying because of the lack of blood flow (hip necrosis). Due to my petite frame carrying Emmet, a severe diastasis recti (ab splitting) led me to have a hernia. Several surgeries soon followed, including a hip replacement at age 38.

Brenden Brechard once said “Health is luck and self-respect.”

My luck and self-respect led me to search for a creative rehab solution. Yay, I had a fully functioning hip and a repaired stomach…


What about my core muscles and my messed up movement from necrosis of the hip?
What about the aches and pains I felt from having a baby, breastfeeding, being in and out of surgery and recovery for 3 years?
What about the way my anxiety was changing the way I breathed and caused my left rib to stick out abnormally?
What about my day-to-day movements running a business?

The solution was a combination of Physical Therapy and Onyx Elite Performance.

Coach Chris, co-owner of Onyx, trained me as one of his athletes needing to get back on the field. This is definitely a tearful moment. When I was afraid of never being able to move like myself, he helped me gain the confidence to lead The WorX again and be me, again.

I still remember one time I was struggling to do a move that required me to hold my body against the wall while standing on one leg and opening my arms up. He told me to “Let go of it all. Whatever it is you are holding on to… just breathe and let it go.” I let go of my frustrations, fears, and the negative voices in my head, and focused on my breath and my body moved better.

Under his mentorship, I trained my own clients successfully using his methods. It doesn’t matter what your goal is: weight loss, rehab, sports oriented or to become the best version of yourself… it WorX!
