Physical exercise is something that has become a part of my life and my way of being. It really helps me to channel my energy to where I most need it, helping me release the tension from my intense working weeks at the same time.
There are days when I don’t even have time to lunch, in between surgeries, meetings and parallel projects I have besides the clinic, and I believe it is precisely on those days when I mostly realize the importance and the need of staying in shape!
Today I’d like you to meet – through my Channel – my personal trainer, Rodrigo Santos, who’s been accompanying me for the past 6 months. He’s a great professional in his area and has been monitoring my training and is someone whom I trust 100% my physical well-being. After all, I have managed to achieve all of goals I have set for myself. We do a bit of everything, from endurance exercises to strength, balance and flexibility, all the essentials to a balanced training.
Because Rodrigo is a real expert in his area, what he has to teach me, and at the end of the day, to us all, would be something worthy of a gigantic text. Thus, it seemed to me a lot easier, intuitive and realistic to present Rodrigo to you first and later (today, I hope), write another article transcribing Rodrigo’s exact words on some important issues related to well-being, exercise and how it all relates to happiness: the thing all of us look for, right?
From what I gathered, Rodrigo’s passion for sports comes from his childhood. So, it’s easy to understand he’s a practitioner of weight lifting/cardiofitness for more than 15 years. As it always happens when we fall in love with what we do professionally, Rodrigo ended up taking the course of personal trainer about 8 years ago, and has been doing it to this day through the company he works for, both at home regimen and even outdoors.
