Nathalia Melo – 28 Day Stronger

All workouts will be 30 mins with a warm up and cool down included. There is minimal equipment required and its open for all fitness levels.
Nathalia in her own words…
“I started training at a very young age, and I’ve always been passionate about everything related to staying fit and healthy. That passion has landed me several magazine/newspapers covers and articles like for: Cosmopolitan, Muscle and Fitness Hers, Oxygen, Fitness RX, Muscular Development, The Daily Mail, to name a few.
Therefore, the commitment and discipline to my fitness regiment has also won me big awards like the prestigious Olympia competition, where I took the first place trophy in the Bikini division.
It is fair to say that for most of my life, I had a good grip on my training regimen…until I found out I was pregnant.
Learning to adapt my training during and after pregnancy was overwhelming, so I dove into countless articles, books, and research papers about training and nutrition. Ultimately, I decided to further my education and become a Pre and Postnatal Certified Trainer, to help me refine my understanding of how the body changes during these stages of women’s lives.
As a mother of two and someone who is incredibly devoted to this lifestyle not only for our bodies, but also for our minds, I have made it my personal mission to empower and help women to live a fitter and healthier lifestyle in ALL stages of their life!”
