Hi Fabiana it is a pleasure to feature you on SimplySxy. Please share with our readers a little about yourself and where you’re from?
I’m the youngest of two and had a wonderful, active life whilst growing up in Brazil. Sports, fitness and nutrition were always a part of my life. Prior to pursuing my LLM Degree in International Law in London, I did my bachelor and worked as a lawyer in Brazil.
In 2017, I decided to go for a career change and pursued my diploma in Transformational life Coaching!
What inspired you to start your own brand?
My first impression when I arrived in London was how unhealthy people seemed to be in general, but specifically in the corporate environment. Not only were people living under pressure and stress, but literally digging their graves with their knives and forks. The thing is, in 2010 the awareness around well-being and having a healthy lifestyle was almost non-existent.
I decided to create an Instagram account with my exercise and diet tips to serve as a source of motivation for those interested in taking on this lifestyle. I wanted to show that lack of time is not an excuse and if I could find time, so could anyone else! After all, I am a full-time lawyer in a career transition, living by myself and undergoing a diploma as a Transformational life coach, having ten coachees under my belt and still finding time to hit the gym and feed my social media! PHEW!
Having found purpose and meaning in helping people achieve their personal best in any area of their lives, I’m now at the turning point of putting aside my ten years of corporate experience to dedicate myself exclusively and entirely to building my brand around Life Coaching!
How often do you work out in the gym?
I do hatha yoga twice a week and weights plus cardio four times a week.
Do you have any guilty pleasures or indulgences for food?
I do have a sweet tooth! So my guilty pleasures are usually related to desserts (Booja-booja dairy free ice cream and truffles are on of my favorites) and my recent addiction is a caramelo cashew butter from almighty foods, I can finish the jar in one go! And pancakes!!! I love buckwheat pancakes with maple syrup!
Where can we catch you partying on weekends?
Because I have such a busy week, I usually use my weekends to rest, catch up on some coaching materials, work on my coaching website and I do coach some clients during the weekend, so partying isn’t really on my plans! However if there’s a DJ that I enjoy listening to, like for example Gustavo Cossetti, I will definitely be on the dance floor!
Would you rather be able to read minds or be invisible?
I would rather read minds because from a transformational life coach perspective, it would be good to see/think with my client’s eyes. As much as we try, we can only understand what people tells us from our interpretation, from our own eyes, so it would be interesting to see what is exactly that they are making of their own reality. Reality is a matter of interpretation!
What is a typical day like for you?
Usually I wake up around 8:00- 8.30 am (when I don’t go to the gym in the morning) and I run to the office as I still work as a lawyer.
At 12:00 during my lunch time, I usually coach one client and then am back to lawyer mode.
At 6:00 pm I leave the office to coach another client.
Around 8 pm I hit the gym.
9.45 I’m back home and I cook dinner, answer some DM’s, look at some collaboration proposals, learn something new around coaching or write on my self reflection journal.
11:30 pm I meditate with the synctuition app to open up my intuition for 25 minutes and then off to bed!
This is when everything runs smoothly and no trains are cancelled or when I don’t have deadlines at work!
Funniest or lamest attempt a guy has tried to know you?
The lamest situation and one that really got me upset was when my best friend (at the time) boyfriend, started to call me anonymously declaring his ‘love’ and I didn’t really have a clue who that could be. I don’t know how he could not anticipate that I would ask my best friend who she thinks it was! She obviously recognized his voice! It was a terrible situation to be put in.
The funniest situation was when my friend’s friend decided to send me flowers without signing his name. I thought it was my ex boyfriend trying to amend things and so I called him and he pretended it was him. We got back together at the time, so this guy’s plan completely backfired!
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Fabiana. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
The more I understand my uniqueness, the more I feel confident and sexy. As cliché as it may sound, being sexy has everything to do with self-confidence! How you carry yourself, your presence, the energy you bring to that space, what do you think and feel about yourself has a direct impact on the way people perceive you. The realization that no one else has what you have and that they are equally and differently sexy in their own ways is for me one of the sexiest thoughts!
