What is your athletic background? Did you play any sports growing up?

“Growing up I played handball and volleyball.” 

When did you attend your first workout with Arlington Sports Conditioning, and how did you first learn about the group?

“Fernanda Sobral [another ASC member] had invited me to the Saturday workouts several times before, but I always declined because I am not fond of driving, and Arlington seemed too far away.

However, I eventually decided to ask her for the exact location and was surprised to find out that it was only a 20-minute drive. In October of last year, I attended ASC for the first time. Although the workout was challenging, I fell in love with it and have been attending regularly since then.”

What is your proudest athletic accomplishment, and why?

“I have never been much of an athlete, so I consider joining ASC my greatest athletic achievement.”

What is your favorite exercise(s)?

“Turf relays, bleachers, slam balls, battle ropes, and…corpse pose (of course!)” 

What is your favorite workout song or musical artist?

“Eminem is one of them, and I always enjoy Pete’s playlists.” 

What is your favorite sports team?

“Ever since I moved to the US, I have been fortunate enough to be surrounded by friends who are big fans of the Capitals. This has made me appreciate hockey a lot, and the Caps have become my favorite team.” 

Who is your favorite athlete?

“Although I don’t want to be biased, I must say that Pelé is my favorite athlete. I grew up listening to my dad talking about Pelé, and even now, he still talks about him.

Other than working out, how else do you like to spend your free time?

“I enjoy biking, hiking, sewing, and gardening.” 

What do you like best about Arlington Sports Conditioning? What are the biggest benefits that you have experienced as a member?

The workouts are always distinct and challenging, never monotonous. I feel fully supported, and the group inspires me to push myself further. Being a member has helped me to maintain a healthier lifestyle and work out more consistently.”

What advice would you offer to new or prospective members of Arlington Sports Conditioning?
