Viveca Velez

Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33418

I have been interested in fitness since my teens. In the late 70's I got a job at a gym as a fitness instructor. After that time, I changed careers, I stayed committed to working out at gyms doing strength training, etc. Several years ago I decided that I wanted to work at something that I had a passion. At that time, I started studying and became a certified personal trainer.

I worked at LA Fitness for 2 1/2 years and now train clients privately. I have trained many people who have had previous injuries from working out or have had hip or knee replacements. I've also helped people avoid having to have rotator cuff surgery. I love what I do and hope that I help my clients find an enthusiasm toward exercise. After I created a studio in my new home, I purchased a vibration platform machine. My clients get benefits from using it as a warm up before their sessions and/or a cool down afterwards. Many of my clients enjoy our training sessions being in their pool since you can do so much more in the water and it's like play time!

I am certified for teaching many Silver Sneakers type classes. I have a Senior Fitness Specialist certification with ACE, and I'm certified as a Functional Aging Specialist with the Functional Aging Institute.

I continue to take weekend workshops and self study courses to learn new areas of study and to sharpen my skills and to specialize in training baby boomers and seniors.

    I have been working out in gyms since 1980 and have had many trainers. Most of them have been men. I've found that men tend to overtrain and cause more injuries.

    Viveca, however, listened when I described the injuries I've had, and I've been able to get in shape and lose weight.

    She has many different types of equipment and exercises available for a total body workout. I look forward to continuing to working with her.

    I have never liked going to Gym and working out UNTIL I started training with Viveca.

    She is amazing! With a positive can do attitude, a wealth of experience working with men and women of "golden" years and the knowledge and training to put it altogether, her wonderful one-on one supportive training programs are perfect!

    With Viveca it is all about you, your goals, and how to get you to point A from point B. After just one month I am back into clothes I have not been able to wear for two years and feel like I am 20 years younger!

    We have all heard as we age, overall fitness, balance, strength and flexibility are vital to our overall health. So together, that's what we work on for me. She teaches me how to easily strengthen my body when we are not working out. And at my age, believe me, its never to late to learn new tools to stay healthy well into my "golden years"!

    Thank you Viveca for giving me back the gift of health! T Suits Palm Beach Gardens, FL

    I have worked with many trainers over the years. Viveca was such a professional, always very supportive. I loved working with Viveca. I am back in New York but I will miss Viveca.

    I have been working with trainers for the past 2 years and finally met Viveca--what a blessing! She is so fun and sweet, and a real joy to be with. She understands my needs and limitations and knows what is right for me. I suffer from joint pain, and Viveca knows how to push me without hurting me. My muscle tone is improving, and I am stronger and healthier than ever. She also understands a lot about nutrition and has given me some great advice. Viveca is positive and encouraging. I always feel great after having a session with her.

    I have always enjoyed going to the gym. This is my first experience with a personal trainer and did I get lucky finding Viveca or Viveca finding me. She knows her stuff and gently nudges me towards higher goals. I have seen a transformation in myself in just the few months that I have been training with her. I so look forward to our sessions.
