Pietro Boselli Modeling & Fitness
At 18 I moved to London and, deprived of the vast outdoors and mountains I was accustomed to, I joined the gym for the first time. It was like a playground, everything was so easily accessible and provided endless training possibilities. I asked myself how could anyone not have amazing gains with all this equipment at your disposal?
The transition to intense strength training happened gradually. While in college, I was part of the cross-country and athletics team and took part to inter-collegiate races. However, the remarkable gains in strength and the novelty of the newly discovered sport slowly conveyed my attention and passion to the gym workouts.
Over the years I kept up with endurance sports, in particular I resumed swimming which soon started taking place exclusively outdoor, at the lidos and ponds available in London, or wherever I could find a lake or the ocean. This was kept up through the winter seasons too, with a gradual and extremely consistent acclimatisation to water temperatures down to freezing point. I grew very fond of cycling which provided me with a means of transport as well as fun weekend workouts.
I always believed that fitness is about lifestyle, more than anything. Walking to places, taking the stairs, being up early in the morning, embracing outdoor activities and putting real effort and passion in the workouts. I have a lot to say about my own experiences, thoughts an feelings on this subject, and I am looking forward to sharing more with you all!
