    Your health investment

    I provide options for every budget.

     

    If you don’t have any major injuries or limitations, you will probably be able to join our Vital Flow classes (max 10 people in each group).
     
    However, if you have very specific or severe injuries or health conditions (such as arthritis, Parkinson’s, or body limitations such as back or knee pain), or if you prefer a more elite service, you will receive a private service for either individuals or couples. Later, you may progress to small groups (max 3) or join Vital Flow.

     

    Once we have assessed your state of health, we will be able to confirm which type of training will be best for you.

  • WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING...

     

    "I’ve been looking for a trainer like Arlindo for years, someone that understands that training needs to be different for someone older than for someone at their peak. Over the last 10 years or so I’ve had a few Personal Trainers. Most have tried to train me as if I’m still a 19 year old which isn’t enjoyable and leads to injury. I particularly like the focus on accepting your age and limitations, and to train accordingly. These are magic words for me to hear! I highly recommend this program and I am really enjoying the sessions!"

    WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING...

    “After breaking my shoulder, I stopped doing a lot of physical activities. I was afraid of injuring myself again and very protective of my arm. Luckily, I found Arlindo, and slowly my confidence returned. With Arlindo’s expert guidance, I discovered I was capable of more movement than I imagined and in time became much stronger. Arlindo’s strength is his ability to listen and customize a plan based on the needs and abilities of his clients. Most importantly, he brings fun and variety to his approach and makes learning how to take care of your body a real joy."

    WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING...

     

    "A carefully thought out series of exercises and movements delivered at a sensible pace for starting the process of learning to move, think and enjoy being alive. Some of it is tough to readjust your limbs and brains to but with gentle guidance from Arlindo….you get there and reap the benefits. If I was younger, I would pretend to be older to join this group."

    WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING...

    "Arlindo is an effective and creative coach who is passionate – and very knowledgeable – about fitness for older folks like me. I have been much more flexible since I started working with him six months ago. I’m also a lot stronger, using muscles I’d forgotten I had. He makes a point of mixing plenty of fun with the challenges he sets, which are based on careful observation of what I am capable of doing safely. Last but not least, Arlindo is very patient: for example, the number of times I get my Left and Right sides confused would make most grown men cry. I give a big thumbs up to Arlindo!"

    WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING...

    "I can highly recommend Arlindo if you are looking for a trainer. He is very professional and passionate about helping people achieve their goals towards better fitness and good health. Arlindo, unlike many other trainers I have encountered, will maintain his focus on you and take into account any health issues you may have. He is extremely knowledgeable with an extraordinary and varied background in fitness. He is also a very decent and caring human being."

     

    - Virginia Lowe -   

    WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING...

    "My partner and I have been working with Arlindo for six months. We had the usual stiffness, aches, and pains associated with growing older and wanted to improve fitness levels, mobility, and balance which with Arlindo’s help and support we are achieving. I had a long-standing hip problem which was very painful and restrictive at times, nothing had helped until Arlindo came along and within three months my hip completely recovered. Arlindo is so knowledgeable and passionate about working with older people and treats us all as individuals with tailor-made programs. We cannot recommend him highly enough as a personal trainer and to top it all he is a lovely guy."
