' Without dreams, life is just survival. '

Without dreams, life is just survival.

Isn't the point of life to expand, to grow, to make progress, every day?

For me, helping my clients achieve incredible physical goals is all about mindset. What draws me in is the connection between mind and body - the impact sports have on our mentality. That's where the real power lies.

I started out on a very different path. After studying economics in Greece I moved to London, where I completed my Master's and went on to work in the finance sector. I'd always read a lot about fitness, nutrition and wellbeing; I always wanted to expand my mind. I loved singing and music, too. At that point, working hard and following my passions on the side made sense.

Then, one day, I realised that keeping my personal development and self-expression separate from how I earned my living wasn't a choice. It was a trap.

The question I found myself asking was this:

Did I really want go on working in banking, earning money by making other people rich? Or did I want to start investing in myself?

That was the turning point; the moment when my life changed.

So, aged 28, I started to study fitness and wellbeing seriously. I'd been practising Capoeira since 2002 and continued to deepen my understanding of this beautiful practice, where dance meets martial arts (Kabula). But I also started training in other disciplines: fitness, bodybuilding, acupuncture and meridian massage.

Eventually, I realised that it was time for me to make a real change if I was to make the impact I was capable of. I left my job to travel through North, South and Central America, with my friend and fellow martial arts enthusiast Dimitris Tsitos.

I didn't want to be a tourist - I wanted to live like a local. I spent time in each place I came to, getting to know the people who lived there and exploring their lifestyle. I wanted to find out what happened when I put down roots in each place. I'd ask myself the same questions every time.

Who am I, in this place, and how do I react? How do I grow?
How do I enrich my environment? How will I channel this energy to other people?

I was searching for a place where I could be a positive force in the community, and where my surroundings would support me to live my best life. I didn't find it in any of the places I travelled to.

When I returned to London and met Chiara, I realised why. The place I'd been searching for was one we would would create together.

A holistic approach.
So, that's the kind of person I am: energetic, enthusiastic, endlessly curious. I'm motivated every day to make progress against my goals, to find out what I'm capable of.

I want to help you tap into what drives you; to help you connect to the reason that you're here. We map out where you are, and where you want to be - my role is to help you do that in the most efficient way.

So if you're ready to commit, I'll be right there with you. I'll work my ass off to support you to get to where you want to go. That's my promise. I approach everything I'm doing with my full body and mind, and a belief that anything is possible.

I love to inspire people; I believe that if I can do it, you can do it. (And you can walk your path even better than me, because it's yours).

I can't wait to help you discover what you're capable of.
