Francesca has been actively involved in fitness and nutrition for the past 10 years. Francesca and Dimitri began PMF in 2006 catering only to a hand full of private clients in condominium residents in G.T.A. Francesca has a well rounded background in training and nutrition.
Francesca feels that understanding what clients need in the gym isn’t necessarily as important as assisting clients out of the gym and in the kitchen. Her belief is that 80% of any changes to the human body occur from what you eat and not how hard you train. As the founder of the “Personalized Grocery Shopper”, Francesca felt that gyms and personal training companies lacked the personal attention needed for clients when it came to choosing their foods. “It’s easy to tell someone what to eat, but harder to show them how to choose their foods!” So, she decided on creating our educational and time efficient service called the Personalized Grocery Shopper: where one of our professional staff will meet you at your favourite grocery store and help you make all the right food purchase decisions.

What I love about these two is the fact that they work out along side their members and are frequently seen on the floor and not in their offices. Both Dimitri and Francesca are down to earth, approachable, and have been really involved since day one.Uri Grinwald, Member since 2001
I have been very impressed by Dimitri's passion to help clients, his knowledge, and his ability to connect with his clients. It’s because of him that I have signed up for another 48 sessions, and it’s because of him that my wife has also signed up for personal training sessions.Adam Pulla, Member since 2004
Having never really been a member of a fitness center, I admit I found all the cardio and free weights a bit intimidating and confusing. Fortunately for me, Dimitri and other members were very helpful and patient. Everyone really seemed to go out of their way to make me feel welcome.Pia Lubertacci, Member since 2011
