I initially started my college studies in Engineering. 2 years into the program, I knew it wasn’t my calling. After spending a year in the US, where I was part of an inspiring bootcamp community which changed and impacted my life in a very positive way, I went back to Mexico and did a 5-year degree in Nutrition (with a clinical approach) and enjoyed every minute of it. I’m now a Level 2 Anthropometrist (body measurements) by the International Society for the Advancement of Kinanthropometry (ISAK) and a Certified Personal Trainer.
Aside from 2 internship programs in Buenos Aires, Argentina and in Valencia, Spain, I’ve worked as a Sports Nutritionist in a private university in Mexico, and was in charge of multiple disciplines including basketball, football, track and field, swimming, and tennis. I’ve done private and corporate nutrition consultations for weight loss clients and amateur athletes, and I’ve also ran an outdoor bootcamp in Mexico for almost 7 years – it is amazing how it never gets boring!
Being healthy to me means you are balanced, you feel amazing, and you give your body what it needs to function properly. Nutrition here, plays a BIG role, because it’s the main fuel for our body. If we feed it with the right fuel, we can achieve unbelievable things. Of course, talking about physical health, moving enough everyday, and taking time for rest is very important as well.
Giving practical examples and practicing what I preach are the top 2 things I do to lead my clients towards health and wellness. I guide them through a lifestyle change that will stick with them for life, not just for several days or weeks. This means teaching them to deal with everyday choices and habits, and working together to make their choices a little bit better everyday, until everything is balanced. It’s really amazing how can small changes can make a big difference, and make people happier, healthier, and feel better.
