About me

Screen-Shot-2012-12-04-at-07.17.05-150x131I am a french strength and conditioning specialist currently living in Brussels, Belgium. With over 15 years experience, I work as a personal trainer, nutrition therapist and Biosignature Practitioner. I am the author of the book En finir avec les poignées d’amour.

I am a body composition specialist. The concept of body composition differs from simply focusing on changes in body weight. Improving your body composition means modifying completely the way your body looks, by losing fat and gaining muscle. Body composition is used to describe the percentages of fat, bone and muscle in human bodies. Because muscular tissue takes up less space in our body than fat tissue, our body composition determines leanness. Two people of equal height and body weight may look completely different from each other because they have a different body composition.

Diet books talk about weight loss, quick weight loss centers try to get the scale to go down as quickly as possible. I am not interested in weight loss: I am interested in making you lean through fat loss and muscle gain (for men AND women). Which refers exactly to what people usually call “toning”. Unlike most trainers, I use a combination of tools to achieve a better composition: specific weight training methods, adapted nutrition, targeted supplementation and lifestyle changes. My goal is to give you results, not to entertain you.
