Mike is frequently recommended by doctors and therapists to help men and women overcome and control problems such as joint pain, high blood pressure, diabetes, and obesity.
Mike has a bachelor’s degree in Exercise and Sport Sciences from the University of Florida. He is certified by the National Strength and Conditioning Association (CSCS) and is a member of Le Tip International.
Exercise Science, M.S.
Sebrina has a Masters degree in Exercise Science, where she primarily focused on laboratory and clinical research. She managed three exercise science
laboratories during her full scholarship Graduate Assistantship at the University of Rhode Island. Research included resistance training with congestive heart failure patients and post -menopausal women, and the effects of vitamin E on muscle damage.
She has been working with clients for 18 years to achieve their fitness goals, heal from injuries, and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Her background, beyond laboratory research, includes, pre-post natal care, kickboxing, total body aerobic classes, & nutritional counseling. She has worked with a variety of clients including, heart disease patients, Parkinson’s Disease, spinal cord injury, post-polio virus, , Lyme's Disease, vertigo, neck and back pain. She works with clients to improve lifestyle changes. Her passion for her work is evident in her client's success and she is primarily interested in functional & core fitness training along with postural alignment.
She has worked in elite gyms across the country including Boston, San Diego, and is currently located on Palm Beach.
