It's the challenge it provides me, every time that I climb of the slackline is a new challenge. Overcome my fears, my limitations is the best sensation in the world.

It was to bring my passion for slackline to my job like a physiotherapist. I always had a interest. When I was a professional slacker, I had idea to create a project that is call 'slacktherapy'. It involves slackline, TRX and functional training. Improving the capacity functional of people sedentary and athletes. The slackline provided me make that I love in fun and at work.
