On January 2011, I decided to open this space to talk about my passions: food, fitness and health.
At first, I struggled to find the right name. I wanted something powerful, highly motivational. That’s how I came up with TheIronYou.
Partially because "Iron Man” is one of my fave superheroes (I know, I'm a dork); partially because an Ironman triathlon is the ultimate sport event and something that seems so far out of reach to most (it's really not, believe me!)
With the name “TheIronYou” I wanted to emphasize the idea of bringing out the best in us, the healthier version of ourselves, the superhero that lies within.
We believe there’s no magic potion for that: it’s just a matter of making sound nutrition choices, regular exercise and leading a healthier lifestyle (or so I believe!)
So I'm set to create healthy recipes, exercise more, and research about everything (and more) that is related to fitness and health. By all means, I'm not a nutrition expert, nor a doctor or a scientist, I'm just a very active person hoping to find straightforward answers to lead a healthy life.
I hope you'll join me in this amazing journey, feel free to flip through the pages of TheIronYou and, by all means, leave your comments and feedback! Oh, btw, this is me!
