The Story Behind it All
When I was young, I was always very active, practicing gymnastics and enjoying activities in nature like walking, biking, and climbing trees with friends. But after I finished studying at university in France, I had moved to Chile and began my career in a big multinational company, one of the Big Four accounting firms, and after a short while, I started feeling like my body was calling for help.
I realized that somewhere along the way, behind studying, working, traveling, and maintaining my social life, I’d lost focus for sports, and for that, I was paying the price. I was tired and uncomfortable, and I longed to feel like I did when I was younger, with a sense of freedom in my body and energy to reach for more.
But after I attended a company-sponsored Zumba class, I immediately felt like little Mathi had returned, which is why I promised myself at that moment that I would never drop sports again. The positive impact they made on my life was incredible.
After that, I continued to make time for physical activity, even after transitioning to another busy corporate job as a brand manager for a renowned Chilean winery. In fact, I spent 3 hours every day traveling to and from a gymnastics center where I could recover my strength and endurance as an amateur gymnast.
At some point, I was going through a heartbreak and a friend of mine insisted that I join her in a pole dancing class. Of course, I was a bit skeptical because of the typical stereotypes, but in the end, I went anyway. And I was so glad that I did because once more, I felt little Mathi waking back up inside me. I really enjoyed pole dancing and was inspired by its artistic nature in comparison to my disciplined training in gymnastics. So I continued to explore more artistic disciplines while maintaining my work in gymnastics, and had my first ever contact with an aerial hoop!
I continued with this momentum after moving to Barcelona soon later. The very first thing I did in the city was run into an aerial hoop dance, where I truly fell in love with the discipline that made me feel like I was literally flying. Since then, I met many beautiful people through those activities, and grown so much as a person, that I decided to dedicate more of my life to it.
Throughout the years, I have been guided by excellent teachers and coaches, from my childhood gymnastics coach to my most recent aerial teachers. I remember the role that every single one of them played in who I’ve become today.
Now, I want to give back as a fitness trainer and be that person for others and give them that guidance and space to ask. I know how powerful that relationship can be, even though each experience will be so different than mine. I know that the process is about exploring and discovering what works for the individual. I just want to be the person that helps you get there.
A Few Fun Facts...
I am French.
But I live in Barcelona and speak French, English, and Spanish.
"When I don't feel good enough, when things get crazy around me, training grounds me- or rather, it takes me off the ground and lets me fly."
