Oi gente! As a Brazilian-American, I've always wanted to celebrate my culture with others. I've lived all over the world but Brazil is home for me; it has this unique energy about it where you feel more relaxed, welcome, confident and inspired. It was in Brazil that I started my fitness journey from a fitness enthusiast to a full-time personal trainer and group fitness instructor.
When I moved to Brazil, I saw a different kind of female shape celebrated - women with curves, women without thigh gaps and women that didn't care about lifting because they'd "get big." My idea of fitness and my own body completely changed. I stopped using a scale. I stopped counting calories. I started enjoying food without guilt. I began to work out because I enjoyed it and not because I'd "get fat" if I didn't. The result was getting into the best shape of my life and becoming much happier. I created Corpão to share this fitness mindset with others through personal training and my group fitness classes. My goal is to introduce you to a Brazilian, fitness lifestyle - relax more, laugh more, dance more and enjoy more. Build the body YOU WANT and that's right FOR YOU while still living!
Part of living is in seeing the world! In addition to my London classes, I'll share with you workouts, recipes and moments of beauty from around the world. I hope that they inspire you to find your own "inner Brazil" and embrace the path of the active globetrotter!
