It all started when I was 18 years old, living in Melbourne, Australia. I wanted to do a tryout of a sauna in a gym club, and they refused me. They said that I had to try out a group class as well. 

So I did and let me tell you, it’s the best thing someone ever refused me. That was not only the beginning of my passion for fitness, but I simply fell in love with sports.


Growing up in different countries (Peru, California, Australia) and along with my mixed origins, it made it easy for me to adapt to diverse cultures and to different people. I am fluent in English, Spanish and French (and my French is not that bad ) and for the last 30 years, I have been living in Switzerland.


Having owned a health club for many years, I was instrumental in the rise of the exercise classes in French-speaking Switzerland. At the same time as I was organising the IFAC Congress, which brought together the biggest names in the world of fitness, I wrote regular columns in the media and presented my methods.


Adding to that I was making DVDs (when these still existed) with exercises to be done at home! When you think about it, it was years before covid, and I was already making home fitness videos.


 I started an international professional training school, mainly teaching courses leading to a fitness instructor diploma.
