Originally from Rome, Italy, I now live in London, where I work full time as a Pilates Specialist, Celebrity Trainer, Nutritionist Advisor, Fitness Model and Fitness Writer.
I love what I do and I find my clients to be my source of inspiration; it’s thanks to them that I wake up every morning feeling happy; they keep my passion alive and I learn from them every day while I help them to achieve their goals.
My own life revolves around moving and clean eating, my own regime consists in weight training, light cardio, Pilates and Optimal Nutrition. My motto is: you can do everything if you really want, put all your energy in it and you will get it! No excuses, no short cuts! Work hard and you will achieve!
Remember: move a lot, eat healthily and keep smiling, that’s the best medicine in life!
Pilates is a system, which allows you to achieve a perfect balance of strength and flexibility by mixing different fitness approaches. The Pilates method was invented by Joseph Pilates in the mid ‘20s to overcome his fragility due to illness. He then developed his knowledge of rehabilitation by helping the injured in World War 1. Later Joseph Pilates moved to New York where he set up his own studio: he attracted a number of actors, athletes and other celebrities in the course of his work.
Pilates is based upon an anatomical understanding of the body's muscular and skeletal systems. The Pilates instructors will create a comprehensive exercise programme for the client. Classes will focus on specific areas individually whilst using exercises that unite the whole body enabling it to be restored to its optimum muscular and skeletal function.
It is this holistic approach, which differentiates Pilates from other forms of exercise. Often recommended by osteopaths, physiotherapists and general practitioners as one of the safest forms of exercise today, Pilates can be beneficial for just about everyone, regardless of age and fitness level.
The benefits of Pilates include improved flexibility, greater strength and muscle tone, Increased bone density, Greater joint mobility, flatter stomach, improved posture, toned buttocks, legs, arms, improved self esteem.
