MY STORY

Exercise is my therapeutic outlet. Throughout my childhood I saw the people I love most self-destruct and suffer from chronic pain and illness without the tools to support their health and well-being.

As I grew older, I began to follow the same path. At age 23, after a destructive phase of my life, I had my first bout of anxiety and panic attacks which opened my eyes about how I was living my life.

I realized I was lacking balance.  As I committed myself to unlearning old patterns, I found fitness. I started running and lifting weights which had a significant impact on my mental health. Fear and anxiety began to dissipate, and I began my journey to healing.

I discovered classical Pilates a few years into my new lifestyle and fell in love. I learned to connect with my body in a way I never had experienced before, relieving tension after years of back pain, while building strength.

Pilates taught me to build strength, connect with my body, and push myself to limits beyond what I ever thought I was capable of. Challenging myself to learn all these new exercises that once felt impossible made me feel powerful and confident, which is why I’m inspired to help others experience that feeling for themselves.

Learning to understand our bodies is one of the greatest gifts we can get from a fitness practice. I learned early in my Pilates journey, the beauty behind a truly strong, capable body from the inside out.

My motivation to workout doesn’t come from social standards, but from the process—the challenge behind each movement and the discipline required.

One of my greatest fitness accomplishments has been seeing my body evolve into what now feels like an invincible version of myself.

After years of experimenting with various forms of movement; I learned that overdoing one form of workout method can lead to imbalance(muscular and hormonal), put stress on our body(achy joints and overly sore muscles), or simply not give results.

I found combining Pilates techniques with traditional strength techniques is an antidote to those concerns. This diversified routine has allowed me to achieve the balance I’ve been seeking in my fitness practice.

This is why I created VB METHOD – an efficient methodology that provides results with no need to over exercise for hours trying to force my body to look like someone else’s—but rather, sculpt and embrace my unique physique.

My Latin culture back home in Puerto Rico culturally idealizes curvy figures, which is the exact opposite of my body-type. Growing up, I internalized the messages telling me I wasn’t pretty or sexy enough, that I needed bigger hips or voluptuous glutes. Like most women, I know what it feels to obsess over what is perceived to be “wrong” with our bodies, rather than loving and celebrating our authenticity. It has taken commitment to inner perspective work to love my body as it is. I no longer give power to social trends telling me I am less worthy. I focus on building strength while sculpting the figure I have.

After coaching for over 10 + years and working with thousands of women with varying stories, cultural standards, physical builds, and genetics; I believe all women have the capacity to use fitness and a balanced lifestyle to help them love and care for their whole being. Self-love starts with learning to accept where we are at any given moment. Once we learn to be kind with ourselves the habits we continue to build have a healing and transformational impact.

My mission is to give women a sustainable option for pursuing health and fitness that allows them to achieve physical transformation by simply reaching their own bodies’ potential, thus feeling great in their own skin.
