Hi!

I’M SYLVIA.

I’m a two-time World Champion Fitness Athlete and a Tri-Fit Hall of Fame inductee. As an elite athlete, celebrity personal trainer and wellness coach to leaders, disrupters, genius entrepreneurs and celebrities for almost two decades I’ve built an arsenal of leading-edge fitness expertise, understanding how to hardwire results quickly.

As the survivor of two near-fatal car accidents, and overcoming several concussions and intense struggles with mental health over the course of my lifetime, I’ve had the rare fortune of embarking on a profound personal exploration into the body and brain’s astounding regenerative capabilities.

I’ll teach you how to access your body’s innate superpowers so you can create, contribute and play in a big way.

Beyond the award-winning fitness trophies…

Beyond catalyzing and contributing to epic entrepreneurial events…

Beyond over two decades of training celebrities, sports pros, enthusiasts of all levels…

Beyond all the appearances and accolades…

The most impactful training grounds of my life has been being the survivor of…

⚠️  abuse

⚠️  addiction

⚠️  brain injuries

⚠️  homelessness

⚠️  deep depression

⚠️  attempted suicide

⚠️  two near-fatal car wrecks

⚠️  an aggressive bacterial infection that almost shut down my organs

Tragedies can destroy us…or empower us. It is always (ALWAYS) a choice. Our choice.

For me, each of these intense trauma experiences gifted me with profound explorations into the thriving potential of my body, mind and resilient human spirit.

Unsatisfied with the traditional approaches of many doctors, therapists, coaches, biohackers and spiritual gurus I stopped outsourcing my power and set off on my own personal healing quest.

My insatiable curiosity, followed by innumerable defeats, paved the road to countless opportunities that led me to exploring alternative methodologies that taught me…

✴️  the extraordinary adaptability of our nervous system

✴️  how to plug into the brain’s astonishing neuroplastic intelligence

✴️  the profound emotional wisdom locked within our very organs and tissues

From helping clients overcome the seemingly impossible, to my own up-close-and-personal struggles with mental health, to discovering how to harness the mind-body’s regenerative capabilities, I gained a unique perspective for my capacity to self-heal and thrive.

YOU can, too!

As an elite athlete, celebrity personal trainer and wellness coach to fitness enthusiasts, weekend warriors and sports pros all over the world for over two decades I’ve built an arsenal of leading-edge fitness expertise, hardwiring the “forever” changes I was determined to find into a more mindful, meaningful approach — that still felt practical and productive.

⚠️  Maybe you’re hoping to lose some unwanted weight that’s left you feeling trapped…

⚠️  Or are looking for a way to get rid of the physical, mental or emotional stress that’s held you hostage for years…

⚠️  Or perhaps you silently wish you had the courage to finally take action on those aspirations you’ve been too embarrassed (or too busy) to claim…

Whether you’re ready to take a tiny baby step, or deep down your heart’s begging you to take a giant leap, I’ll show you how to rewire your body and brain to activate that creative, courageous spark that lives within you.

🆘  Even if you’re feeling unsure of yourself and feel like you’ve tried everything.

🆘  And especially WITHOUT all those overly heady mindset tactics or super woo, spiritually bypass-y self-help work.

YOUR BODY knows the way.

Together, we take simple, consistent steps so you can re-emerge into our world as the force for good you were born to be.

Your vision and your voice are valid. And necessary. It’s time.

 

 

 

I have a keen sense of how to hardwire results quickly for you by biohacking performance and tapping into flow state on-demand.

Optimize Your Brain & You AWESOMIZE Your Life.

I’m in the business of training leaders like you because when YOU thrive, our entire planet benefits.

When you feel happier and more confident, that sense of vitality ripples out to affect your family, your community, your work in the world, and even the way you treat our planet.

You were NOT put on this planet to live a meager existence and make tiny ripples. You were born to show up fully and catalyze tsunamis — the profound kind of impact that begins with optimizing your body for true success, vitality and real joy.
