Best part Of my jobThere are plenty of things I like about my job, but if I have to pick one, it would be that every hour of my working day is different! I also enjoy working with people and the most important part of it all is being able to do sport all the time.
The worst part of my jobMy working schedule is constantly changing; therefore it is hard to plan weekly activities. Clients change their training appointments, last minute cancellations and have multiple scheduling preferences. My diary is a Sudoku… but I am very glad to have this problem.
Being fit meansAchieving a mental and physical balance on your everyday live, applying it to hobbies and obligations, getting closer to that feeling called HAPPINESS.
My inspirationOther athletes, nature and positivity.
I’m passionate AboutSport of course; I also enjoy sharing a beer with my friends and watching football. I like calçotades (typical Catalan gathering to eat grilled spring onions) and getting lost in a tiny town in the middle of nowhere. I also like eating paella in a restaurant on the beach.
I hateLies and hypocrisy. People with no ethics, moral or education.
Favourite foodSince I was a child… Macaroni au gratin with Bolognese sauce.
Bad habitsI am getting rid of all my bad habits… getting better… hahaha!
MovieGood Will Hunting
MusicI don’t listen to a lot of music but I like any style as long as I hear a song that makes me happy.
GameI’ve spent so many hours playing it… Pro Evolution Soccer for Play Station.
DreamI dream of owning a house with a garden and a big barbecue in a relaxed town near a big city, and plenty of friends to share it with. A secret A secret, should be kept secret, shouldn’t it? One I can talk about is that, when I was 18, I climbed the front of a six storey building because someone (not me!) had forgotten their keys inside. Insane!
The most important thing in my lifeIs to live life the best you can and to feel good about yourself, not doing what other people expect you to do.
Goals of 2013I’d like to improve my English, train for a sprint triathlon and forall my clients to achieve their goals, even the most difficult ones.
