My name is Patricia and I am a Brazilian (born and raised) from Sao Paulo, Brazil. At the age of 22 I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in physical education from FMU and later went on to obtain my Master’s degree at the same University for Sports and Training. I have always been very interested in Pilates. After I finished my Master’s degree, I went on to pursue and become a Certified STOTT Pilates Instructor.
Soon after I finished with my STOTT Pilates certification, I had a great opportunity to work in the Middle-East. While there I was also blessed to work for the Bahrain Royal Family as a personal trainer. Working in Bahrain granted me the opportunity to learn and teach everything to do with physical fitness and inner peace. 🙏🏼 Along my journey in Bahrain I came to fall in love with CrossFit and had the grand opportunity to obtain my CrossFit Level 1 certification. I traveled to London, England and became a Certified CrossFit Level 1 instructor.
One more great thing to come from Bahrain was meeting my Husband. About a year after meeting him, I moved to the United States. I am now a navy wife and a proud mom of 2 little ones. 👧🏼👶🏻❤️ Being in the United States has also offered me many opportunities in the Fitness world. As I got older, I wanted to expand on my knowledge for Nutrition. So that is exactly what I did, I went back to school and obtained my Master’s Certifications in Sports Nutrition, Holistic Nutrition, Weight Management, and Nutrition Consultant from AFPA.
Hi! My name is Alexa Murray and I’m 32 years old. I have two children that are the light of my life and their names are Maddox and Savannah. They are almost 4 and almost 3 and are 15 months apart. After having babies back to back, I know what it feels like to be in the thick of it. I know the hard work and dedication it entails to get your body back. I became a full time stay at home mom after I had my daughter and the pandemic finally created an outlet for me to do what I love most again. It enabled me to connect with all of you beautiful people and help you become the best and most balanced version of yourselves.
I have been a personal trainer for 10 years and I live to make women of all shapes, sizes, backgrounds and ages feel confident in their skin again. I truly believe that proper nutrition, exercise, and the right supplementation are the best preventative medicine. I’m so grateful to be an athlete for a company like Protea that truly cares about OVERALL health and well being.
