I’m Duarte Monteiro, founder of ZenSport, and helping athletes improve their speed and agility is my passion.
I practice cutting edge athletic performance training based on the latest in sports science, with a focus on kinesiology and biomechanics to enhance human movement qualities. I’m always striving to stay current in the world of athletic performance, an academic pursuit that keeps me constantly learning and always growing.
As a former competitive martial artist and soccer player, I know the risks of athletics. I minimize those risks through proper movement training, functional conditioning and corrective exercises that help mitigate injury and improve athletic performance.
My passion for helping others stems from my youth. My father began a professional soccer career in the highest division of the Portuguese European FIFA League when he was just sixteen years old, but it all ended prematurely three years later when he tore his ACL. I grew up seeing the crushing effect his injury had on his aspirations firsthand.
