Personal Info

I was Born in Hasselt (Belgium) in 1975, where I spent my childhood in a quiet suburban area. My family were all devoted tennis players, volleyball players and kickboxers. I preferred more serene sports and practiced figure skating, platform diving and dancing, when I was not playing outside.

After my university studies in Leuven (MA Philosophy) I worked as a HR consultant until the sports bug bit me again. Around 10 years ago I decided to be my own boss and while the road was bumpy, the rewards turned out plenty.

Hobbies

I love stability training such as Redcord suspension training and Bosu ball, as well as cardio workouts on the elliptical trainer or just a good outdoor run. I find any outside activity a treat: fresh air, sunlight and admiring nature.

Healthy cooking is another passion of mine: tasty, quick and easy dishes are my thing. My favorite recipes or cook books? I simply create my own!

Personal Info

Born in Dunkerque (France) in 1975. With both my parents being high school teachers I spent all after-school time playing outside. I grew up in a rural area, running through cornfields, erecting Playmobil fortresses out of dirt. My parents were more reading people than sports buffs. Yet at six years old the gymnastics bug bit me, and I competed for nine years.

Following my university studies in Leuven (MA Linguistics, then M Law) I joined a Big Five tax consultant. Then, seven years ago, Vicky asked me to start a Pilates company together. I now very much love being my own boss, as well as having a boss with a acute sense of health and warm personality.

  • Introduction to Alexander technique, D.J. Weitzman (Belgium)

Hobbies

I fancy sports with a bit of a technical challenge: stability training, squash, snowboarding, even piano playing. Any outdoors activity can make me happy; nothing compares to a brisk walk through mud and pouring rain, keeping up with my 3 year old son on his bike!

Knowledge-hungry by nature I like reading scientific literature to find better ways of working out.
