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.”

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.
