Healthy Lifestyle

I am an athlete and obsessed with fitness!

Being healthy is more than clean diet and exercise. It’s about our attitudes, emotions, beliefs, thoughts and actions.
What is our attitude towards life? How are we handling our emotions? Where are we choosing to focus our energy? What are we doing to feel better? Every day is a new day, a new opportunity we have to stop and become more aware. To commit ourselves to do better. What stories are you telling yourselves? Remember, we are the co creators of our own reality, what we believe we create!

I am a professional Figure athlete, and I love to push my physical limits and challenge myself to be better than the day before. Being an athlete helps me improve as a human being as it requires so much mental discipline.

For any trip that I go, I incorporate a physical challenge. Some in my list are:

  • Hike the Montana Machu Picchu in Peru,
  • Hike the Himalayas for 7 days to the Annapurna Base Camp in Nepal,
  • Trek for 3 days the mountains in Sapa in Vietnam,
  • White rafting in Brotas in Brazil,
  • Hike the Tongariro Crossing in New Zealand,
  • Ice climbed in Iceland and my list can continue...

We have 1 body and 1 planet, we need to take care of both! Be healthy and connect with the nature.  Leave your positive mark on our Planet.
