Passionate About Helping my clients!

I come from France and arrived in NYC in September 2014.

I was a World Class athlete, National Champion of France in 2011 & 2013, I won some international medals, and finished 9th at the European Championship.

I originally came to America to train for the 2016 Rio Olympics and to do my Master's degree, but I fractured my spine in 2015, lost my scholarship, and had to retire from my sport...

Instead of going back to France, I decided to start coaching clients using my expertise to change their health and fitness.

I own a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Exercise Science, and I continually keep learning about health and fitness, because I believe that every expert needs to keep learning about his industry.

Since 2015, I've coached over 400 people and I am proud to say that I only received 5 stars reviews from my clients!
