Ticiana Tonneti - Boxing Coach, Personal Trainer and Helicopter Pilot :-0
Born in Belo Horizonte, BRAZIL, the skinny girl began her bodybuilding work at the age of 21 encouraged by a JiuJitsu Black Belt boyfriend. She moved to Rio de Janeiro in 2002 and was invited to be the cover of GRACIE MAGAZINE.
The following year she was nominated COLUMNIST in the same magazine, which earned her various trips, sponsorships and contracts as model for brands of supplements, fitness clothes, bikinis, where she remained for almost five years. At the same time she started boxing with the renowned coach Claudio Coelho - Academia Nobre Arte, where also trained famous MMA fighters.
After that, Ticiane spent time in Europe and when she returned to Brazil, she was invited to teach boxing classes in several gyms and academies.
In 2010 she started flying Helicopters and worked as a Commercial Pilot and Flight Instructor, but never left bodybuilding and boxing aside.
The crisis in Brazil and the massive layoffs made her change her life all over again, and then chose MIAMI as her new "home", because she considered very similar to the "carioca" lifestyle.
In Miami she teaches boxing classes for a women at Rilion Gracie academy, in addition to private lessons.
She also trains Jiu Jitsu, a sport that has now become a major challenge for her.
"PILOTING A HELICOPTER IS PIECE OF CAKE, JIU-JITSU IS WAY HARDER!", says Ticiane.
