Personal Trainer | Nutrition & Health Coach
Founder of #fit_r

I used to dread sports and anything related to physical activity when I was a child.

At the age of 12 I was overweight, overly shy and overwhelmed with guilt for being the way I was.

It wasn't until I discovered fitness that I understood there was something I could do to gain control of my life. That my body and mind could change, if I dedicated some time and put some effort into moving more.

I began swimming, running and cycling, and this made me feel so much better about my body. I became more empowered by taking control of my health and creating a new version of myself.

Towards the end of my teenage years, I enrolled in a fitness studio and began taking part in group fitness classes. This was a big step out of my comfort zone, but I found out that it was so much fun!

​​

Fitness changed my life, so now I dedicate it to changing other people's lives too.

​​

Having taught my first classes in Portugal, I moved to London a few years later to pursue a full-time career in the fitness industry. After 4 years in the big city, I spent 18 months living by Lake Geneva, in Switzerland, working as Head Group Trainer while completing the ACSM Certificate in Personal Training.

​​

Now based in Australia, I bring all my passion and expertise to #fit_r's virtual exclusive programs, available all over the world and designed to give you the best results and that special feeling of mission accomplished after each workout!
