VIDA Fitness Personal Trainer Spotlight — Luciane Guilmard
Originally from Brazil, I earned my Bachelor’s Degree from the University of South Fatima and has over 20 years of experience. I have much experience in strength training, conditioning, cycling, yoga, aqua-aerobics, stretching, and injury recovery. I like to strive to stay current with and incorporate the newest trends and innovations in fitness. I am extremely knowledgeable about different body types and adjust exercises to the needs and desires of each client.
What made you become a Personal Trainer?
Since I was young, I was passionate about games and exercise, and being active, fit, and healthy. As a child, I was always running, jumping, climbing trees and fences. I loved playing volleyball and dodge-ball on the street with my sibling, friends and neighbors (usually I was the last one to be hit). I decided early on that I wanted to work in sports professionally. I went to University and studied to become a Physical Educator. Since then, I have been working in the sports and fitness field and remain passionate about what I do.
Always warm-up before starting your exercise routine, use proper form to ensure you target the correct muscles, maintain consistent breathing throughout exercises, and finally, cool down with static stretches.
Don’t skip meals, keep to small portions, avoid fatty and sugary food, drink plenty of water, and get enough sleep.

It is so great to help others get fit and maintain healthier lifestyles. No matter what my clients’ goals are, whether it is to get stronger or reduce sizes, improve balance and flexibility, or recover from a injury and run a marathon, I step up to the plate. I have helped so many clients achieve their own fitness goals, while providing knowledge, motivation and encouragement to help them in the pursuit of health. I truly enjoy being able to see the body transformation and making a difference in someone’s life.
