At X3, we’re all about helping you achieve your goals, and our trainers are one of our secret weapons. This week, we sat down with Bia Bitetti to give you a behind-the-scenes look at what makes our high-intensity West Midtown trainer tick.
Read on to learn more about Bia, her 81-year-old inspiration, and her new program idea. (Pretty sure you haven’t heard this one before. Butt we think you’re going to love it.)
What did you do before you came to X3?
“I am from Rio de Janeiro! I have 25 years in teaching physical education and have worked in gyms ever since I graduated from college.”
What does life outside of work look like?
”In addition to teaching, I was a crossfit athlete for Roots- Razies Crossfit in Brazil. I trained a lot in my spare time but on the weekends when off, I was either cycling or going to the beach with kids (2 kids 20/15).”
What type of training do you specialize in?
”I specialize in bodybuilding, general fitness for athletes and crossfit.”
What made you want to become a trainer?
”My father is 81 years old and still continues to swim and be active despite his age. He’s always encouraged me and my sisters in sports and is one of my biggest inspirations.”
We heard that you are wanting to start a new program separate from the classes that you teach at X3 Sports. Can you give us some details on what members can expect?
”My program is specific in Brazilian Butt Training. It is something that many people, particularly women in my country want to focus on training. We use ankle weights, bands, and sometimes small bars for squatting. This type of training not only targets the glutes but also quads and hamstrings. Typically, a program like this will be 3 times a week for 45 minutes.”
How long will this program run for?
”3 months will be the minimum for good results. It will be in a group group setting, much like class, so you have that accountability.”
Who can join?
”Anyone can join this program but it is made specifically for women who want to increase their glutes, quads, and hamstrings.”
What if I don’t want to join your program but want to train with you on something else?
”Anyone can book personal training sessions with me! Contact me for my availability and we can start right away!”
