Hi, I'm Ana Coppola. Celebrity personal trainer, Australian Ninja Warrior - season 5 contestant, founder and author of Brazilian Butt Express.
YASS! You guessed it, I was born in Brazil!
To your surprise, back in my country, I studied Law, worked with litigation at an English law office named Linklaters and just later - two years after abandoning my “dream, respectable and stable career” I became a personal trainer in Spain by the European Institute of Fitness (EIF).
You must be thinking: ‘Cool story! But how then, from Brazilian Tax Law to celebrity personal training?’
I can explain...
A week after landing in Australia in 2008, while still in a hostel, I started working at, then, the world’s largest privately owned health club: Fitness First (initially at the Randwick and later also at the Bondi club, both located on the Eastern suburbs of Sydney) - where I worked for 12 years and became a senior personal trainer, a boxing group fitness instructor, a writer and an ambassador for both Australia and Malaysia groups.
It wasn’t all fun and games. It was mostly hard and many times I did miss the high salary, the prestige and the stability associated to my previous career path. However, the one thing I never missed was the “dream”. Because THAT ecxact transition (from Law to Fitness) was my DREAM then and it is my DREAM now.
So now that it is clear that I LOVE WHAT I DO let’s talk ‘butts’.
Through my Sydney based personal training business, as the director of Coppola Training & Health Coaching, I had the privilege of helping hundreds of clients creating the bodies of their dreams!
Be it face-to-face or online, at home or outdoors and anywhere in the world via Zoom meetings I can make PT sessions happen. Efficiently, effectively, safely and FUN.
Thanks to my experience and of course my BUTT 'obsession', specialising in BUTT training was just natural. Adding the amazing results of my clients, I got inspired to create - in the words of What's New in Fitness/ WNiF magazine: 'the ultimate Butt training concept' - Brazilian Butt Express - BBE Fitness & most recently Fashion lines.
To this date I still feel that writing and sharing what I continue to learn through my fitness journey and training programs are the best and most realistic way to help others achieve their DREAM BUTT, LOVE EVERY INCH OF THEIR BODIES and BECOME a HEALTHIER & HAPPIER VERSION of themselves.
