LABI Welcomed Maria Simon as a Guest Chapel Speaker (9/3/14)
La Puente – Trainer on the new weight-loss TV program, “Dale Con Ganas,” from the creator of “The Biggest Loser,” on Univision, Maria Simon, was a guest chapel speaker at LABI College on September 3rd, 2014.
Simon is most popular for starring on the the spanish hit TV program “Dale Con Ganas” on Univision. During the LABI College chapel service on Wednesday, September 3rd, she, of course, spoke about her many experiences in dealing with clients that wanted to lose weight. “If you set a goal over your life you must do three things” said Simon. “First, you must ‘speak it’, then ‘see it’, and finally you must ‘become it!’ ”
“Maria’s message spoke to my heart” explained 2nd year LABI College student Naomi Ruiz. “She asked us to take the idea of where we want our future to be headed (or where God is calling us to be) and then to actually visualize that idea. I sat back and pondered on my life’s calling. It was a great message!” she explained further.
Over all, Simon’s message during the chapel hour at LABI College was to share her life experience and to motivate other to know what they want to do with their lives. “I think it was great for the students to see that you can have a secular job out of the ministry and still represent Christ,” shared Roy Rodas, the LABI College Worship Pastor.
Simon has also appeared in People en Español (Feb, 2012), FitnessMagazine.com, Univision.com, and CBS Moneywatch among others. She is one of the resident Fitness Experts for Primera Edicion on the local Univision television network. Furthermore, Maria travels throughout the country as a Keynote/Motivational Speaker for various Corporate Events and is the National Spokesperson for the American Heart Association’s Go Red Por Tu Corazón campaign.
