Welcome to my website!!! My name is Patricia Junqueira, exercise; nutrition and healthy lifestyle are my passion. My interest in nutrition started when I was 12 years old that I started to read books about nutrition and at 18 years old I started to run and at 20 years I did the first triathlon in South America in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, my home town. After that I never stopped, I love to train and compete, it makes me feel happy, young and strong. I enjoy doing races like marathons, triathlons and Ironman. The long distance races give me the opportunity to go beyond myself and overcome difficulties. I have competed in more than 500 hundreds races including 2 times the World Ironman Triathlon championship in Hawaii.
My passion for sports, exercise and to help people led me to two Bachelor degrees: one in Physical Education and one in Physical Therapy. For 30 years I have been helping people to get in shape, eat healthier and create a healthier lifestyle. I also help people to prevent injuries and rehabilitation after injuries or surgeries. I create a personal program to achieve each person’s goals.
I have been practicing a healthy lifestyle since I was very young, growing up in a healthy family, I learned to eat healthy and to be active.
At 40 years old I relocated to the USA to be close to my twin sister. I started my own Personal Training Studio in Tampa. In 2016 I sold my business and started working at a major gym as a Master Personal Trainer. I’m now operating my own private Health coach business. I teach Dr. Sears LEAN program, L.E.A.N. Lifestyle Program is an acronym for Lifestyle, Exercise, Attitude, and Nutrition. Lifestyle is how we manage our time and our lives, it includes the work we do for our job, our relationships, how we spend our leisure time, how to exercises, how much sleep we get, how we deal with stress and our spiritual life.
