Personal Trainer


  • In terms of exercise, Marisol reveals that she has tried almost everything. Even though she knows that HIIT training is very popular for fat loss, she insists it does not work for her because her body feels sore and inflamed and does not recover from the intensity of HIIT for many days.
  • Instead, she only trains her full body with light weights and primarily focuses on floor exercises. She swears by Pilates to strengthen her core and follows it up with a 40-minute walk. On a treadmill, she prefers to walk in incline mode. Also, at least 3 times a week, she focuses on thorough stretching and flexibility work.


  • In 2007, after many years of hit and trial, Marisol came across the 1st Personal Diet by Dr. Cohen, a South African OB/GYN. The diet is designed to balance female hormones and specifically aims at storing or burning fat in the body as per requirement.
  • Marisol’s body responded well to these principles and after she managed to lose 40 pounds post-pregnancy by following a modified version of this diet, it won her loyalty for the rest of her life. She says she can eat anything she wants without consequence 20% of the time if she designs 80% of her meals based on the 1st Personal Diet.
  • Her top 5 general health tips are:
    • Just a cup of coffee in the morning is not enough. Have breakfast.
    • Replace refined sugar. Marisol uses vanilla-flavored stevia in her coffee, tea, and cooking.
    • Replace heavy oils and sauces with spices for flavor in food.
    • Eat protein with every sugar-loaded indulgence to prevent lethargy caused by a sugar crash afterward.
    • Alternate walking with running to limit wearing out your body.
