Flavia is a passionate coach, who has been an athlete and fitness enthusiast all her life. She attended Georgia Southern University on a volleyball scholarship, graduated with a BS in Kinesiology/Exercise Science and received her M.S. in Exercise Physiology from FAU. She immediately saw the value in the core principles of CrossFit– constantly varied functional movements executed at high intensity. Her first CrossFit experience was at CrossFit Deerfield Beach, in 2012, where she stayed as a member for a couple years and eventually she pursued her dream to be a coach and make a difference in the community!
Prior to CrossFit, Flavia was a pro-beach volleyball player in Brazil for 10 years, moved to the US in 2004, and has been working with strength and conditioning ever since. CrossFit, as Flavia would say, “just makes so much sense. It is everything I have always believed in…having the speed to sprint from A to B and the endurance to run from A to Z, being able to lift things from the ground, challenging our minds and bodies to learn new skills and get uncomfortable, if need be, to reach our fitness goals.”
Outside of the box, Flavia is a mom, a beach volleyball addict and loves to travel. She loves the intensity and variety CrossFit has to offer–not to mention the awesome community!
