My name is Flávia Crisos and now you will get a chance to know me better.
I was born in São Paulo on September 6, in 1977. I had a childhood rich in motor experiences where I practiced ballet and other sports for more than ten years.
In 1994 I moved to Florianópolis, an island in the south of Brazil, mainly to run away from the violence and the chaos of São Paulo, but also because I liked to surf. So, the harmony between beach and tranquility was perfect.
I started weight training ten years ago to gain weight since I was very slim. But with time I got a taste for the sport. So, after attending college for Physical Education and acquiring the technical knowledge, my training became more serious and complex. The transition between casual and competitive training was only a consequence of this process.
It was not easy in the beginning since I always prepared myself without help. I have never had a coach and I made a lot of mistakes until finding the proper way. However, the competitive environment, the relationship with other athletes, as well as my personal experiences, facilitated my technical development and gave me a better knowledge of my true potential.
I believe that the psychological side is the most important aspect of training. If you do not have devotion, motivation, persistence and discipline, the other factors such as nutrition and proper training simply do not function. The support of family and friends, which in my case has been strong, is also important. With hard work everything is possible....
I am very determined and a perfectionist who believes in what she does. This sport is my biggest passion because by surpassing my limits everyday I become not only a better athlete, but I also a better person
