Over 40% of Canadians are at high risk of developing mental health issues ranging from stress to depression. Millennials, women, and low-income earners are at greatest risk. LGBTQ+ individuals face a much larger risk due to socio-economic factors such as discrimination, violence, accessibility, and inclusion. That’s why ArtsFitness is here to provide a safe space where your individual fitness needs are addressed in a respectful non-judgmental way.


I grew up surrounded by people with genetic and chronic health conditions so I was always conscious of the importance of living a healthy lifestyle. It just happened I was also a very artistic kid. I was coaching drama classes after university. Seniors in particular. And I thought it would be helpful to understand anatomy so I could help them move safely. I had been going to gyms since I was a teenager, but I did not understand why I was doing what I was doing.

Fast forward. I have been a fitness coach for 10 years. I am also a Registered Massage Therapist now, Fascia Stretch Therapist, and yoga teacher. I worked in a gym full-time for almost 5 years. I faced homophobia, and heard many stories about fear and exclusion from individuals not fitting in with the status quo or inherent toxic masculinity of the industry.

So, today, I am also a fitness activist. I work with various marginal populations teaching movement in a way that celebrates fitness as a human right and a privilege, rather than a product of shame or guilt. I enjoy breaking down complex science into more tangible tidbits that can lead to empowerment, growth and pride. I offer low-cost options as much as possible so that more people can access the guidance of a coach without phenomenal cost barriers. As an Older Adult Specialist, I work extensively with the senior population. I am, also, one of the first coaches in Toronto, Canada to tailor my services to LGBTQ+ folks.

I never thought I’d say this, but I actually love going to the gym now. I see the results already and not only in my physical appearances, but most importantly in my stamina and energy levels.

Of primary importance for me is that with each exercise he keeps correcting the positioning of my body in order to target the right muscle and to get the most benefit from the particular exercise.

Lorenzo was so patient with everyone and so gentle. Such a refreshing style of teaching! I thought it was done so creatively, by combining a thinking piece along with the exercise. Thanks to Lorenzo for being so welcoming!

My top fitness goal was to improve mobility and sleep quality. The program helped me gain better understanding of the science behind stress and its impact on wellbeing, and also gave me plenty of practical resources that I can implement daily. Lorenzo was very supportive in catering the material to individual needs and also took the time to engage his clients on a personal level.

I like the tips and suggestions that you send pre and post workout. I was in a car accident and due to covid I wasn’t able to go to physio but this really assisted in stretching out my lower back. Lorenzo mentioned + affirmations and imagery for your psychology while doing excercises.
