Our Blacksmiths Ready To Transform You

FEDERICO VELLA // The Captain & Co-Founder of The Forge. 

Boxing / Kickboxing / TACFIT / FLOWFIT

Federico began boxing in 1993 at the young age of fifteen. Even while pursuing his masters degree in engineering, his passion for the sport never waned. Over the course of his professional career, he fought in over 100 fights across various specialties including Boxing, Kick boxing, Full contact, Thai boxing, and Savate. He won multiple titles in the professional K1 boxing class including Italian Champion in 2003, European Champion in 2007 and 2-time World Champion in 2009. Crazy for all high-adrenaline sports, especially surfing, kitesurfing, and extreme snowboarding, Federico’s body has retained several painful souvenirs.

Why boxing? “Because I love the respect and the honor that characterizes this sport. Plus it helps me to release stress, keeping my mind and body balanced.”

Functional Training / Pilates / Boxing / Kickboxing

All information concerning this individual is classified. We only know that his whole life is devoted to training, and he is ready to face any threat that comes his way.

ANJA BEHREND // The Dancer, or The German Girl.

GYROTONIC® / Dance / Aerial Yoga  / Pilates / TACTIFT / FLOWFIT

Growing up surrounded by athleticism in a family of sports fanatics had a great influence on Anja. Eventually, life led her to discover dance, and she quickly became obsessed, leaving home to study ballet at the age of 10. At 17, she landed her first professional job, consequently traveling around the globe and performing on all the major stages as a professional ballet dancer. 8 years later, she became a Principal dancer with Les Ballets de Monte Carlo, and dancing the leading roles in all the major productions was a dream of hers come true. Aside from dance, GYROTONIC®, TACFIT, boxing and aerial yoga, Anja loves nature, cooking and spending time with family, animals, Berlin, and house music.

Why Coaching?: “It took me ages and lots of hours of sweat, patience, hard work, injuries, disappointment, and defeat to reach that shining and often short moment of perfection in training, rehearsals and finally on stage. Coaching for me is a constant evolution of sharing my passion for moment, making my clients’ lives easier and giving them the best out of every single training session.

EMMA WILKINSON 

Ladies Boxing / Gyrotonic / Abs, Legs and Butt Workout

Dancer, model, actress, and now, trainer. Emma discovered her passion for dance at the young age of 4, and by age 10 she was already competing at the All England Finals in Dance. After all of her years at the prestigious Central School of Ballet in London, she attended the top college for dance in the UK, Laine Theatre Arts, in Epsom, where she obtained her national diploma in dance and drama. Shortly thereafter, her dream of becoming a dancer at the internationally-acclaimed cabaret, Le Lido de Paris, was fulfilled, and she subsequently worked 7 years and toured the world with the show.

During her time as a professional dancer, Emma explored other avenues, modeling for Miss England, Sweaty Betty and L’Oréal Paris, and acting in the film St Trinians, as well as other TV shows. From the beginning Emma has been a fitness freak, always taking close care of her body throughout her career, even helping her work colleagues keep fit. She’s also developed a passion for GYROTONIC and boxing. 


Why Coaching? “After training so hard my whole life and performing on stage I wanted to share my passion with others. With my experience at Le Lido I always wanted to make women feel super confident in themselves and to give them all my positive energy. I love to share my knowledge and to help clients reach their body goals.”

ALEXANDRE RUDOVIC

HIIT/Tacfit / Kickboxing / Boxing Bag Circuit

Alex has always been drawn to combat sports, and he has fearlessly explored the martial arts of judo, kung fu, and karate. Yet it is in boxing and kick-boxing that he found himself and an inner fire, which still continues to burn in him. He still competes in both.

His related passion for training and health sciences led Alex to obtain a degree in sports science. From there, the natural next step was to become a Personal Trainer and to share his experience and enthusiasm for movement with others. Working off of his wealth of experience in his own life, Alex is ready to help his clients surprise themselves by not only reaching, but surpassing their goals.
