Hi, I am Silvia!
I truly believe it is possible to be healthy, fit and feel good about yourself at any time in life.
I specialise in working with busy professionals who have become aware overtime that they need to make a change as their poor health, lack of energy and low level of fitness have started to affect their health, as well as other areas of their lives. I help them to create a lifestyle, often after years of unsuccessful attempts at long term change, which they can apply on a daily basis. This results in sustaining better sleep, higher energy levels, positively managing stress and feeling comfortable in their skin.
Over the years I have learnt that your future goals are what count, not the difficulties you face at present. My clients have proved this time and time again.
My style of work is for people that enjoy the outdoor environment or are not afraid to give it a go. My clients find that the combination of exercise and fresh air is the most effective tool to maintaining their positive mood. What’s more, they realise that anything that can be achieved in the gym is a lot more beneficial and rewarding outside!
“I absolutely love training with Silvia. Every session is different, and I am really feeling the benefits from it – I never thought I would enjoy training as much as I do now! She has definitely changed my attitude towards fitness.”
Once you decide and commit, you can make a lasting difference to your life. I have helped clients who lacked motivation, support, confidence, energy, time or simply felt lost. Through understanding, gentle encouragement and empowerment, I helped them to become not only fit and healthy, but I also gave them tools to maintain their healthy lifestyle.
“I have been working with Silvia since August and she has been vital in helping me to go from being unfit and scared of exercise, to actually planning my own runs.”
A few more details about me:
I am a mum of three, keen runner, personal trainer and a certified coach. I am based in Essex and have always been passionate not just about improving my own health and fitness but also about developing a mindset which helped me to deal with obstacles and challenges in my life.
I am non-judgemental and I have been intent on helping people make sustainable life changes. I used to think that if we could only follow “the right advice” everyone can achieve what they want. I have learnt over the many years of experience that everyone needs to find out what will work for them. Sometimes we just have to be brave enough to start and everything will fall into place.
My background is in healthcare industry where I trained to be a nurse. I took a break to care for my 3 children, whilst keeping active and planning my next career path. This turned out to be setting up my own business as a Personal Trainer. It has been very rewarding seeing people make changes around their health, well-being and even other areas of their life, particularly when I have applied Life Coaching.
What I love about combining Personal Training with Life Coaching is seeing people begin to believe in themselves, take control and become the person they initially didn’t believe they could be.
Apart from being passionate about helping people like you to make sustainable changes in your life, I enjoy traveling, drinking coffee and continually developing myself.
