Vinny

Fitness Coach

Vinny originally found fitness training while competing as an All American Wrestler. The challenge to always better himself and his craft turned into a passion for the fitness world and the passion persisted. From then fitness became a tool, in which he could take both pride and comfort. Fitness became a part of his life.

After gaining his NASM Certification he realized the greatest passion was in helping others to achieve their own goals. The pride felt in someone else overcoming their challenges, would far outweigh any feelings of personal accomplishment. This is what drew him to a career in fitness.

Vinny plans to continue his education into Health and fitness so he may always use the knowledge gains to help guide others to succeed.
