Why are you using a Personal Trainer to achieve your goals?
For motivation, accountability, direction, and support. And because it sounds cool to say that I have a Brazilian personal trainer
What do you like most about Rafael?
His infectious passion for strength and conditioning training, dedication to solid technique, incredible patience and talent in developing Olympic lifting skills, and innate ability to get more out of you than you think you have.
What is your main goal ?
Maintaining a training routine that continues to motivate me to stay fit…and lifting big weights.
How has Rafael helped you reach your goals?
Prior to training with Rafael, I was never consistent with my workouts, which mainly involved chugging away on a treadmill or elliptical machine. Rafael introduced me to a whole new world (for me) of strength and conditioning training. It was exactly what I needed to see real changes in my fitness. Rafael’s workouts are always changing and evolving, which keeps me engaged in the workouts (I don’t do the same old thing every day/week!) He challenges me to improve and provides support and technical expertise to develop Olympic lifting skills that have taken my fitness to another level. Each week I get stronger and develop more endurance. Those results are what keep me coming back to the gym for more.
