It’s no surprise the calling as a Health and Fitness professional developed from growing up in a traditional Hispanic home where over indulging in food was normal. Well known and the fatty in the family. Sylvia seemed to have inherited the fat gene while her siblings were twigs.
With full effort to get in shape, she suffered a knee injury from years of improper running, later severely injuring the left shoulder in a horrific car accident. Lucky to be alive!
Although it wasn’t easy later on when she gained over 40 pounds during pregnancy, which resulted in excruciating lower back pain with slipped disc. The thought of ever being healthy and in shape seemed like a far-fetched idea.
Through years of trial and error through her own health and fitness journey, Sylvia has designed multiple Bodyweight Pilates programs, mobility programs, nutrition resources,
cookbooks and weight loss programs that have been used by thousands of private clients locally and worldwide. Sylvia mission is to use the knowledge, experience and skills she’s developed over the last decade and transform the lives of 2 Million Women Worldwide.
