Meet the Trainers: Giorgia Piscina
Coach Giorgia Piscina is known for her bright and bubbly personality, as well as her extensive knowledge in the fitness industry. Growing up with a sporting background, Giorgia always knew that she would be involved in fitness for the rest of her life. Finding her love and passion for gym is something she now wants to share with our strong community of women, empowering them to reach their goals.
Pushh: Can you tell us a bit about yourself?
Giorgia: “I have been training in the gym for 7 years but always been into sports and fitness all throughout high school. I was a competitive gymnast, representing Australia in competitive cheerleading. But the gym is where I found my true love and I started competing in fitness shows. I competed in my first show, won it, and won my pro card at the same time in 2014. Since then, I’ve traveled the world competing at world shows, pro shows, in places like Toronto, London, Bahamas, and Las Vegas.”
Pushh: Why did you become a coach? What is your favourite part of being a coach?
Giorgia: “Being a coach on the Pushh app gives me the opportunity to share everything that I have learnt over the years being in the industry and that excites me so much. I had to do all the hard yards, figuring out what works and what doesn’t work, but now everyone is getting all that information straight away.”
Pushh: What is your favourite type of training and why?
Giorgia: “My favourite way to train is strength training, I love lifting weights and this has been the best way for me to build, shape, tighten and tone my body. All those things that I wanted for my body but wasn't achieving through the endless amounts of cardio, I was able to do through resistance training. It’s so important that girls out there know that you don’t need to be scared of weights: they’ll bring you confidence and help you build your strength both inside and out of the gym.”
Pushh: Describe your personality to us.
Giorgia: “I asked this question to my family and friends recently actually! A lot of people responded saying that I was a little dorky, but also very bubbly, as well as determined, ambitious and driven. I like to be a balance of silly and fun, but also know when it’s time for business and to be serious, focused and goal oriented.”
Pushh: What are you most excited about with Pushh?
Giorgia: “Building a strong community of girls and women where they can help and support each other and share our wins. It’s such an exciting thing when you start to see results, you just want to continue with it. It’s such a motivating experience and it’s such an amazing process, and to be able to do it together gives me chills.”
