The First Program in Italian

And when iFIT decided to introduce Italian among its foreign languages (the firm is American, so most programs are in English), they called…me! I was so surprised, when I saw their first emails, that I thought it could actually be a prank by some friends of mine. But no, it’s really happening, and I am shooting in France, with a crew of 14 people, for the whole month, in order to get the program ready.

Here are some impressions of the first locations where you’ll be able to run with me. More to come!
