training philosophy

I believe that exercise and movement are a path to live a healthier and happier life. I am convinced that one has to look for some sort of physical activity that lights their soul and that no matter who you are, you can find something that you enjoy. I used to think that fitness was about rules and structure, and to a certain point it is, but is much more important to find that little something that keeps you moving and makes you come back the next day.

3 fun facts

  1. I have practised several sports since I was a kid. I used to be very uncoordinated, but basketball and dodgeball at age 8 really helped me gain confidence and improved my physical skills.
  2. I always said my dream was to become a high-performance athlete or a circus acrobat. Although I didn’t get there, today I practice aerial silks and Lyra at least three times a week, which makes me extremely happy.
  3. I used to be an absolute foodie. I used to eat literally anything. But now I have been vegan for three years – I’m still a foodie, but a plant-based one!
