I've been a certified personal trainer for 13 years, helping hundreds of adults, teens, and athletes, to reach their individual fitness goals. I am certified by the National Academy of Sport Medicine (NASM), American Aerobics Association International/ International Sports Medicine Association (AAAIA/ ISMA), and a certified Spinning instructor.
I have been an athlete from a very early age. I started surfing when I was around 6 years of age then played soccer until I was 14. When I moved to the US from Colombia, I picked up the sport of beach volleyball in which I excelled. This influenced my move to California chasing the dream of becoming a professional beach volleyball player. I was ranked 183rd in the nation on the AVP tour until I injured my back at the age of 24. My passion lies in sports and health, therefore, my ongoing relationship with the fitness industry.
My business name was inspired by a dear friend and client whom I had been training for several months. She was so pumped about the way she felt and looked, she said " you should make T-shirts that say 'BODIES BY SERGIO'"! So the name became something of a joke among friends and it turns out that I do have something special gift to share, I can achieve results.
Time and time again my clients return because after a few sessions, they feel fantastic. My style is a blend of tough love and fun, we incorporate music and multi-purpose moves whenever possible. Why target just one muscle when you can attack three? I'm a firm believer in the importance of resistance training and building muscle mass for women especially, and in the development of core strength and balance for everyone. My workouts are fast-paced and efficient. We take full advantage of every muscle group and every minute possible. Workouts are always designed around your individual needs, injuries and health concerns. Together we will safely find and explore your edge.
