Why do you love training clients?
When you are training someone you are teaching them something. I think teaching is one of the most beautiful and important things you can do. Teaching means taking care of somebody, sharing your background with them and getting the best you can out of your clients because you believe in that person!
What is your fitness history?
Since I could remember I have always practiced and played sport. I tried many different types of sport: from soccer to basketball, from swimming to athletics. I found my passion in volleyball and I played for 10 years in several different leagues. My passion of the sport brought me to start university studying Kinesiology where I learned a lot about fitness and sport training, anatomy and physiology to name a few, and how they work intrinsically together. At the age of 21 I started to work with my volleyball society as a coach and achieved 1st level volleyball trainer. Immediately I used my knowledge as a coach to become an athletic trainer for different teams. In May 2013, at the age of 23, I decided to become an official personal trainer and received 1st level personal trainer Qualification. In November of the same year I started to work as a personal training instructor for a gym where I was in charge of training individual clients and small groups. During my time at university I trained my own independent clientele and family members.
What moments are you proud of?
At the end of a difficult training session when I can see on everyone's face how exhausted but satisfied and happy people are, to know that I prepared the workout and pushed and nurtured them through the session and to see their results, that is when I am most proud of myself.
What is your fitness philosophy?
“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”
