Rico Joannou

I’ve struggled with my weight and feeling confident in my own skin my whole life. I would constantly eat junk food, feel demotivated to exercise and not care about my health, which lead to me to being clinically obese. 


I developed a bad relationship with food and a worse relationship with being active. I couldn’t walk up the stairs without feeling like I was going to pass out. In 2018, I had enough! I decided to change my life by cleaning up my diet and signing up to the gym! In just 1 year, I was able to lose 35kg! 


My transformation has changed my life completely so much that I decided to leave my job as a chef to become a personal trainer. I want to inspire others to make that first change like I did and support you wherever you are in your fitness journey. If I can do it, you can too!
