I started going to the cheer doctor to gain strength for tumbling and stunting. when I first started going, I was really struggling on my standing tuck to get it consistent. No matter how many reps I did it just wouldn’t get consistent. Until I started doing these workouts, not only has my standing tuck gotten consistent, now my tumbling is much more powerful on any surface. With stunting, I have so much more power as a base and control under the stunt.

-Cassidy Donaldson, Highschool Cheerleader

“Maria has absolutely changed my cheerleading abilities in every way. Her ability to pinpoint what each individual athlete needs is astonishing. I struggled with terrible lower back pain that was holding me back from reaching my full potential. Once I began working with Maria I noticed that pain became less with every workout. I’ve grown stronger and learned how to unlock my full ability with Maria’s help . Everything from my confidence, strength, stamina and over all ability to do skills wouldn’t be anywhere close to where it’s at now without Maria’s help!”

-Gabby Krenitsky, Ohio State Cheer Commit

Hello fearless cheerleaders!

My name is Maria, and I want to formally invite you to join my Making Mat community!

I had a lot of support throughout the years to help me compete among the best in the world, and now I want to share my support and resources with you!

As a physical therapist, strength coach, and former USA cheerleader with multiple world championships, I know what it takes to succeed and I want to share the secrets with you.

I was once a high school cheerleader navigating without the luxuries of specialized training, weight room access, or professional nutritional guidance.

And I often found myself plagued by injuries and aches/pains.

Joining the Ohio State cheer team changed everything.

With dedicated support systems including a team strength and conditioning coach, tailored nutritional advice from a team dietitian, and an array of other invaluable resources at my disposal, my abilities flourished, and my chronic pains dissipated.

Empowered by these tools, I set my sights higher, aspiring to compete at the pinnacle of cheerleading: the USA cheer team.

In under two years, I transformed from struggling to execute even the most basic stunts alongside the top athletes at Ohio State to confidently attempting elite stunts for the USA Cheer tryouts.

When I found out I actually had made the team I was astonished.

This achievement was undeniably a product of the unwavering support and comprehensive resources provided by Ohio State.

Subsequently, I proudly secured three gold medals with USA cheer.

Now, driven by a desire to share the wisdom learned from my journey and to aid fellow cheerleaders in achieving their highest aspirations, I invite you to join my Making Mat membership.

Gain access to the wealth of knowledge and resources that propelled me to success, and embark on your own journey to reach the pinnacle of the sport.

Below is an example of what the inside of the app looks like.

This is a "Base Basic" program for someone who is a base, but only has access to minimal equipment (DBs, KBs, bands)

Once you sign up, you will choose from Base Bodyweight, Base Basic (minimal equipment), Base Intermediate (full weight room access), Base Advanced, Flyer Bodyweight, Flyer Basic, Flyer Intermediate, and Flyer Advanced.

All programs are designed with the assumption that the bases/flyers are also tumblers.

When you click on the exercise, a video pops up with how to do it and a space pops up to input your results
