Hi! I'm Antonia!
I'm a motivator, a certified personal trainer, a fitness nutrition coach and a cycling, pilates, & boxing instructor.
And my goal is to remind you that it’s never too late to do, feel & be your best…no matter what age. Living a healthy, active & positive lifestyle really does go a long way. Let’s embrace where are today, do our best & get stronger together. Then we conquer the world. Why think small right?

I have been active my entire life - growing up swimming, dancing, and later competing in marathons and triathlons. My successful Escape from Alcatraz will always be a favorite! After working on Wall Street for 15 years, I left to pursue my passion for fitness and a desire to help others crush their goals. I taught for SoulCycle in NYC before moving to Chicago to open Flywheel Sports. I later opened Studio Three in Chicago and also taught for Peloton. I was voted Chicago's Best Instructor by ClassPass in 2017 & am still honored by it! J
Why did I change careers at 38 when everyone said I was too old to start over? I saw the toll an unhealthy lifestyle and high stress environment had on people's bodies... and it wasn't good. Sitting still at a desk all day wasn't my thing either. Ha! Exercise became my stress reliever and it made me feel better physically and mentally. It not only changed my life, but saved it.
In the end, I realized I wanted to make a difference in this world by helping others feel their best no matter what age. It is never too late to be or do anything you want. I believe in carving your own path without any apologies. You've only got one life so own it. This has been my biggest motivation working in fitness over the past 10 years and I have no plans of stopping until I'm at least 100! :)
When I’m not pushing you to do your best, you can find me playing outdoors and eating. Yep. I do love food. I’m Italian, so it’s in my genes! And I’m always looking for the next best skincare treatments…a good mask can work wonders!
