Personal Trainer and Lifestyle Coach
I have always been a very active, sports orientated person. Rugby was always a big passion and I played it for 15 years! I have also been a huge fan of sports like surfing, snowboarding, cycling and basketball.
A few years ago I became a Personal Trainer in a very well-known gym chain in Portugal and later became a Fitness Manager. In the meantime I found CrossFit and fell in love instantly! The constantly varied movements and workouts really kept my attention and I was actually commuting about 1h each way just to attend a WOD!
Then, I had an idea; why not open my own CrossFit box? It felt like such a good investment as there was no CrossFit knowledge whatsoever in the city I was living in. CrossFit Coimbra was launched in December 2013 with two other partners and has been a massive success, with over 200 athletes and 5 coaches!
Now you must be wondering why I’m here in Bristol… love is the answer! My other half moved to the UK a year ago and I thought why not? So I joined her and the first thing I did was find a CF Gym that we could both train in. Almost accidentally I bumped into CF Avon and Andrew very kindly welcomed me and later offered the opportunity to become a coach with this amazing team!
So, I’m bringing my CrossFit experience along with me so that I can hopefully help all of you out there achieve your goals and most important of all, introduce you to the amazing world of CrossFit!
