About me

Geia sou - hi, I am Sofia

… a Greek Exercise Physiologist Researcher & Wellness Performance Coach living in Brussels, Belgium.

Being a part of the sports’ world since childhood, and a professional since 1999, I have encountered several different approaches to health, fitness and lifestyles. I realised, through my personal challenges as a sportswoman, as well as my research and my career as a coach, the importance of self-motivation, and how our Body, Mind and Heart are strongly connected.

As founder of HeAlthΩ Ιn for wellness, the on-line program ‘Thyroid Wellness’ and The Pappu Sofia Foundation, and as volunteer and European Development Commissioner of Wheelchair Rugby for disabled athletes, I have worked closely with people of all ages, nationalities, backgrounds and motivation levels. This has helped me understand all sorts of needs, as well as support the holistic methodology that has been my guide throughout my career.

Let me help you take control of your life – healthily, mentally and physically-, find your goals and achieve more than those.
