Ivan founded ATHLETIC CLUB in 2019, after his industry experience highlighted the need for a personal training space driven by client needs. His desire to provide clients with a personalised, all-round experience drives him to continually develop ATHLETIC CLUB, ensuring it remains the location for personal training in Hong Kong.

Born and raised in Brazil, Ivan later moved to Toronto, Canada and studied George Brown College’s respected Fitness and Lifestyle Management program. He also holds a Certificate of Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology (CSEP).

After working in several leading gyms in Canada, Ivan was recruited as a Senior Strength Coach for a fitness studio in Hong Kong in 2013. In Hong Kong he has built a strong reputation, renowned for his expert fitness knowledge and personal approach to training, founded upon trust and results.

Ivan guides his clients to achieve sustainable results, across areas including rehabilitation, athletic performance, weight loss/muscle gain and overall health improvement. Ivan continues to refine his skills and create innovative strategies enabling others to achieve their goals.
