I am enthusiastic about life, health, fitness and love. I live my life with gratitude. I strive to take care of my body, my mind and my soul!
My first love is Dance. I began to take lessons and performed in public at a very young age. From African beats, to Modern Dance, Latin Ballroom and later to Spanish Dance and Flamenco, which I continued until right after I had my first son, as part of the Estrella Morena's company. I pursued Latin Rhythms in Miami, followed by Samba at the Carlinho de Jesus School in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, taken Modern dance classes at the Broadway Dance Center in NYC ...I have never stopped dancing!
I began my fitness journey when trained with the Womens gymnastics team of my country. I played indoor volleyball throughout my school years. I would say the best fitness training though, was outdoors, in contact with nature, when hiking mountains, swimming in the Pacific ocean and crossing rivers, as a kid with my family then; and as an adult with my family now. Movement, action, keeps your body fit.
I am an AFAA Certified Fitness Trainer! Hey, I am also certified in Barre, Kickboxing and TRX. I love fitness, love to exercise, love people, love to see the positive changes in my students and clients. It feels good to know that they can change their own lives and I am just a little part of it. Like I always say: I am here to teach you how to train; it's up to you to change your life.
Much love and health!
