Growing up in a small town right in the center of Portugal, exercising and focusing on one’s fitness was never part of the ‘norm’. It was not until I moved to Vancouver in 2012 where I became surrounded by individuals who were eager to maintain a healthy lifestyle. This is where I found my love for the gym and working out –it became a place for me to connect with individuals, while also working on my own fitness journey and mental health.


The experience of working out was entirely new to me and took me a bit of time to find my passions and love for the gym. However, once I built myself a consistent schedule, I became obsessed with the feeling of being strong, confident and powerful –all of which I would never take for granted. Creating this new mindset and drive for myself made me realize that my true calling was to help others learn and gain these feelings of empowerment as well; therefore, this is when I knew that fitness was something I wanted to take professionally and seriously. 


In 2018, I graduated from Infofit College, where I completed a full time personal training program. From there, I also completed my American Council on Exercise (ACE) Certified Personal Trainer Certification. Since then, I have continued my education by completing my Total Body Resistance Exercise (TRX) suspension training course, became certified as a kettlebell instructor with Agatsu, and acquired a certification as a Pain-Free Performance Specialist. As of now, I am studying to expand my knowledge in nutrition by working towards completing my Precision Nutrition certification this year. 


I have seen first-hand that anyone who has the willingness and dedication to put in the work will and can achieve their goals. Without a doubt, it is important to be mindful that there may be barriers or obstacles that need to be overcomed, but it is important to be prepared and ready to never give up. I hope to be someone who spreads positive energy to everyone who crosses my path and help them work towards becoming the best version they can be!
