Alvaro Romano

During the 80s Master Alvaro Romano decided to spread the world his lifestyle and his quality of life. After having his university degree and post degree in Physical Education, he decided to develop a workout technology beyond of everything that was ever done before: Ginastica Natural®.

In the beginning, Alvaro Romano perfected a type of training he would do on his own to, later, apply in class. For the safety of those practicing it, he conducted an in-depth study into the movements. His first experience applying Ginastica Natural® techniques was with himself and the athletes he trained.

Founder and creator of the Ginastica Natural® method, Alvaro Romano has a Post-Graduate degree in Physical Education and Recreation, author of the book “Ginastica Natural®” (Press Publishing House, 1987), Romano is also present in the collection “An anthology on physical activities” (Midiograf Publishing, 1987).
