Welcome to the Healthy Ageing Movement!

You are sick of feeling tired. You’re tired of feeling pain. You want to avoid progressive diseases and taking pills for the rest of your life. You know there’s a better way to live, and you are ready to start.

We are a community of like-minded souls who are dedicated to maintaining a happy, active and fulfilling lifestyle. We have fun, support each other, form friendships and, most importantly, move!

Sounds like a good match? Read on…

From our studio in Portimao, we provide elite face-to-face group classes or private sessions, or a mixed online / face to face service for those who live a little further away or who travel abroad frequently.

Our philosophy

Training is as natural as possible, so that you develop the physical movements you need for real life.
Fully respects and accepts the individuality and needs of each person.
Focuses on not only improving your physical health, but also your mental and emotional health.
Develops your self-confidence, self-esteem and self-motivation.
Provides a community of people who feel inspired, and who enjoy inspiring others.

Is Arlindo's Way for Me?

Arlindo’s Way is the right option for you if any of the below describe you:
– I have low levels of motivation and discipline to exercise
– I have body limitations (eg. back, knee, hip or shoulder pain)
– I am unfit or seriously overweight
– I have health issues (eg. arthritis, Parkinson’s Disease, balance issues)
– I have lost the hope that my physical health can improve again
– I would like to be a part of a community of people on a journey to health!

Your Health Investment

I provide options for every budget. If you don’t have any major injuries or limitations, you will probably be able to join our Vital Flow classes (max 10 people in each group). However, if you have very specific or severe injuries or health conditions, or if you prefer a more elite service, you will receive a private service for either individuals and couples. Later, you may progress to small groups (max 4) or join our larger Vital Flow classes.

All Arlindo’s Way clients are fully committed to their health journey.

A variety of investment options will be provided after our initial consultation, depending on your needs and the frequency of your training.

Arlindo Martins


Degree in Sports Science

Motivational Coach 

Cert IV Fitness Instructor Personal Trainer (Australia)

Arlindo’s early work life was as as a PE teacher, as well as founding and managing a long-running, highly-successful martial arts school. In his career, he has reached international level competition, trained elite athletes, and been invited to television.

However, the greatest joy of his career has taken place over the last 8 years, as he has helped many people to find a way to healthy ageing through movement, and to dramatically change their lives for the better.

He has had outstanding success with helping people to recover from, or radically improve, body issues such as back and hip pain, arthritis and Parkinson’s. He also loves working with people who have never exercised, or who have not exercised for many years, to help them discover a love of movement.

Narelle Bell

As a 60 year old woman, I now know, through Arlindo’s expert guidance and support, that if I stay engaged with my body it will keep me mobile and enjoying life and all its adventures for many, many years to come. Arlindo has taught me that my body deserves respect, acceptance, movement and fun designed to keep it strong and flexible. Thank you, Arlindo. My life would be far less enjoyable and full without your expertise and insight.

Kathy Tomaras

Arlindo is a thoughtful, caring trainer that has a deep knowledge of everything he teaches. He picks up on all the important small details that produce the improvements necessary to gain great results. I would highly recommend his expertise!
