I am from Brazil, went to school in Chicago, and have moved to Austin for new life experiences.
My athletic background is of volleyball and basketball origins, with fairly recent experience in power lifting. I've always been a stickler for proper form so while in school I researched the physiological aspects of "practice" and learned a significant amount about sports and movement in general.
I'm a shorter guy, so I've always looked for ways to jump higher, runs faster and hit harder. This led me to lifting heavy weights to supplement my athletic abilities. After creating a name for myself for my athleticism I was asked by friends to show them how to do the same. Helping them was very fulfilling, so I became a personal trainer.
My favorite thing about being a personal trainer is the science behind exercise and fitness. I can tell you why running to lose weight is a bad idea, how to improve your basketball shot without a hoop and how to increase your vertical and 40 yard dash time. All because of science.

What to Expect
Every new client will receive a fitness assessment during the first session. Based on the assessment findings and your own personal goals, I will tailor a specific workout program for you. The workouts will develop starting with stabilization work (working on your core to stabilize your spine), then move to muscular endurance (improving the energy systems that allow you to stabilize and perform for a longer period of time), then to strength conditioning (increasing muscle fiber recruitment for higher potential strength), and finally to plyometrics (explosive movements).
A typical training session will include a warm-up/stretching period, the higher-intensity workout, and a cool-down/stretching period. During the higher-intensity workout portion, we will focus on a combination of stabilization, muscular endurance, strength conditioning, and plyometrics. Stabilization consists of exercises like planks and isometric holds (ie balancing on one leg); muscular endurance consists of exercises like medium to low weight squats and bench press; strength condition consists of heavy weight squats and bench press; and plyometrics consists of jumping, sprinting, and various other explosive exercises. During each workout I will teach the client why I am encouraging them to do specific exercises and how the
