I have worked in the Health and Fitness world for over 20 years. Born and raised in the Italian Alps, I have trained in London, Sydney, Hong Kong, Singapore and I am now based in Los Angeles (Pasadena).
I am a Certified Polestar Pilates Mat, Reformer and Studio Instructor and a Nationally Certified Pilates Teacher (NCPT, formally known as PMA®-CPT). Furthermore, I am a Polestar Teacher Trainer (Educator) and have conducted Pilates certification courses across Asia and Southern California since 2006.
Aside from being a Pilates teacher, I am an internationally certified Personal Trainer (NASM) and a Precision Nutrition Level 1 and 2 Nutrition Coach.
"To me, fitness and nutrition should not be things that we merely ‘find time for’ in our busy schedules. Instead, I think proper fitness and nutrition should be integrated into our daily lives.
Your health is a lifestyle decision - never a fad or a quick fix!
By incorporating into our lives the right type of physical activity and nutritional intake, we can look and feel healthier, happier and lead longer and satisfying lives.
I can help you!
At the heart of my approach is customisation. First, I learn about my clients and their unique individual needs. From there, I use a building blocks approach to challenge my clients with their fitness and to advance them towards the right nutrition plan.
Training - My philosophy as a Personal Trainer is that exercise should be fun yet challenging and tailored to each individual’s needs.
I believe in - first - correcting body mechanics and alignment so that you can move on to more challenging exercises without the risk of injuries or without compromising the healing process from past injuries. After helping you address or correct your body’s limitations, only then can we progress in your workouts.
Nutrition - I believe that dietary changes should be simple and gradual at first. This gives the body ample time to adapt to your new way of eating as well as nutrients being introduced. Just like in fitness, there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ and each individual has very specific needs.
As a Nutrition Coach my approach is to educate my clients on how to eat whole food that is both natural and nutritious - but most importantly - right for them."
