I believe in health and in improving the lifestyle of the client, but the method to reach this balance can take any form. I have a relaxed approach about training and nutrition because for all these years I worked mostly with and for women and I know everyone wants to find a personal formula to reach the goals she wants. I stopped believing in stereotypes promoted by American type of fitspiration that says you have to pull yourself with tenacity to exhaustion in order to succeed what you want. I went in this road myself and I did not got anything, it is a lesson I learned the hard way. I always tell those around me that a healthy meal will not make you thin, as well as a chocolate will not make you fat.“says Cori Grămescu.
