Born in Argentina, Buenos Aires. Grew up in Montebello, CA until the age of 13. Started my athletic career as a swimmer. Competed for the YMCA for many years until I made the decision to stop swimming so that I can pursue my interests into different sports.
Move to La Habra, CA where my mother, found a gymnastics studio called Eric Will Gymnastics. There, I became very interested in the sport of gymnastics (at a very old age- almost 14yrs. old), in which I was taken rather quickly from the recreational program and put into the competitive team. I competed compulsory level 5 and 6. Winning State and Team Championships. Through perseverance and motivational tactics, I trained 25+ hours per week as an Optional Level gymnast. Winning a Level 7 All Around & Team State Championship and a Level 8 Uneven Bar Regional Title. These experiences have taught me a lot about responsibilities, the freedom of movement, technique quality, time management, performance, professionalism, acceptance of winning and losing, team work, success & failures, process of mental & physical readiness, progress and the quality of teaching vs. coaching.
After four years as a competitive gymnast, I decided that it was time to stop, an pursue my love of coaching. Here is where it all started for me. I coached at Eric Will gymnastics for a long time. Adapting to learning all there is to know about teaching and coaching gymnastics technique. The more focus and passion I put into my work, the more I enjoyed helping kids gain their confidence and built their self-esteem.
My love for this sport has allowed me to grow not only as a professional coach but as a human being. My self-awareness, self- discipline, control, motivation, hard work, learning from my failures, being loyal to my body, being persistent has allowed me to be successful in what I do and who I'am.
My uniqueness and background, has allows me to help others engage in what they love to do. Everyone, has their unique set of skills. It is my job to help them find what that is, and elaborate it through movement. I help kids understand that they have their unique set of skills and that we are not all built the same way. So sometimes, motivating kids with a different perspective and a different skill development, we can help them engage in success no matter what sport, skill or program they are involved in. Success starts with a community of support, motivation and hard work.
As a coach-fitness instructor-communicator-teacher-personal trainer-psychologist-cheerleader, we spend a lot of time with our athletes. The best progression of success is a parallel line of work between the coach and the participant. As we work together, we will be able to accomplish tasks, goals, objectives and dreams.
