As the box is expanding in members so is the Batteraof crew to help you reach your fitness goals! We would like to introduce to you one of our four new Level 1 Assistant Trainers.
My name is Sabrina and it is a huge honour to be asked to be part of the “back-up babes” team.
Some personal info:
• I'm Brazilian and 36 years years old. I am married to my Best friend Fabio and together we have 2 children, Anna who is 14 and Gustavo who is 9. We also own a beautiful dog named Nina. I love playing piano and anything involved with the make-up industry, since I am a formed make-up artist and love everything to do with aesthetics.
• Love traveling but I HATE the cold weather!
• I'm a trained nurse and studied 2 years of psychology, which I unfortunately couldn’t finish due to our move to The Netherlands. We moved to The Netherlands almost 10 years ago because of my husbands work transference. We came here to stay for 2 years and yet here we are!
So why don't I speak Dutch? Well…I do, but I don't think I'm good enough and don't feel comfortable using it on a day to day basis. You have no idea how hard it is to learn a language that sounds like Donald Duck! hahaha
Had to reinvent my life when I was 29 and that is the moment when I started Zumba, from there on there have been many courses, many lessons and a lot of learning. At the moment I work as a Zumba instructor at another gym in Maastricht, and teach approximately 12 classes per week.
CrossFit has been my passion and my personal training preference for 3 years now. I don't intend to compete and unfortunately I can’t take the risk of injuring myself, because of the work I do, if I get injured I won’t be able to work! And for that reason I feel like in some moments I'm stuck as an athlete...
Why be a back-up babe at Batteraof?
I completed my Level 1 course a few years ago and ever since I haven’t worked as a coach so I'm looking to improve as a coach and get experience by working in a box.
By having such an "explosive" personality like mine there is always something positive within CrossFit! Finding the ideal balance inside my identity and what you guys, as athletes expect of me, is my biggest objective in this beginning!
I believe that increasing my integration with the community will help me find out the different types of athletes and what they are capable of.
Please feel welcome to come and talk to me about anything!
And any type of feedback is always welcome, especially if they come accompanied with some good whiskey.
