living in Munich (Germany) since 1987

"Sports have been my lifetime-compasion. First, my career as a tennis professional led me to all five continents. Then, I celebrated great success as National Coach of Germany’s Wheelchair Tennis Teams, at the 1996 Atlanta (USA) Paralympic Games, then at the 1998 World Championships, held in Barcelona (Spain).

In the beginning out of personal interest and later as a trainer, I began to take interest in physical and mental well-being as well as  the secrets of a healthy, balanced diet – a knowledge that I was able to consolidate in the course of time. Now, my education as a Personal Trainer allows me to impart my experience in training, together with my knowledge in sports medicine." (Vincenzo Vavala)
