The passion for bodybuilding emerged when I was 16 years old , along with my passion grew my commitment and dedication and when I saw I had become a remarkable professional bodybuilder making this great experience, my profession.
I graduated and majored in sports nutrition in the USA to fully understand all the possibilities of transformation and performance. Throughout my career, still in Brazil, I traveled through more than 50 cities exposing information in universities, TV shows and fitness events, in an effort to promote and expand awareness regarding physical training and changing eating habits.
My main goal as a fitness coach and sports nutritionist is to promote the quality of people’s lifestyle, especially when it comes to obesity, an alarming problem that surrounds us these days. My work methodology is unique and focused on the benefits offered through my knowledge and ability to fully understand what each client desires. My clients are given a meal plan, a workout plan, and encouraged to believe that they are capable of changing , and this makes the process enjoyable and effective.
Living in the USA since 2004, I created PRADO TRAINING SYSTEM, a unique training system. Known throughout the United States for the successful physical transformations of many people, PRADO TRAINING SYSTEM began in Westchester County, New York, but the success was so great that there was a need to expand. Currently, I manage 3 different locations in the USA and also work with the online coaching program .
I was Junior National Champion in 1991, Mr. Universe in 2001 and 2002 in England, Mr. World in 2002 in Greece and professional athlete for the International Federation of Bodybuilders (IFBB) in the year 2004.
