Luisa is Italian and has been living in the USA for 14 years. She was a computer science engineer for more than 15 years, working for AT&T Bell Labs for 7 of those years. In 2001, a massive downsizing provided the impetus for her to finally pursue her dream: to convert her passion for cycling into a profession. So, she went back to school at the University of Colorado in Boulder and took a second master’s degree in Integrative Physiology.
During her master’s program she worked in the Exercise Science Laboratory, Boulder, where she participated in several research projects that involved more than one hundred athletes. She conducted performance tests (VO2max and Lactate Threshold) and analyzed their results.
Luisa is a USA Cycling Certified Level II Coach since 2002 and has successfully trained more than 30 athletes of different levels as well as with health or injury issues.
