About Vinny

Hello!!! Welcome to your segue to SUCCESS. My passion is to teach you how to look, think, perform and feel your best! My initial goal at the start of my career as Master Wellness Coach was to positively impact as many lives as I could through fitness. This aspiration has carried me through 5 states and 14 years of providing individuals of all populations "preventative medicine." My experience as a multi-sport collegiate athlete has enabled me to coach clients on the importance of focusing on all the facets of wellness in order to live the #FOREVERFITLIFE.  It's not just a mindset, it's a MANTRA- come join the #FOREVERFITFAMILY !


My favorite exercise

I LOVE functional compound exercises (which shows in my coaching style). Functional training is the MOST effective way to not only maximize & speed up progress but to also to prevent injury and strengthen your entire body!

My favorite quote

People care not about what you know once they know how much you care.

My training philosophy

Your body is like a diamond. You must focus on ALL of it's (fitness) facets to truly shine!

Working out on and off all my life. Never worked with a trainer. I was not reaching my goals. So I tried a few trainers and was not satisfied. Met Vinny one day and after talking with him decided to try his work outs. I made the investments. Well it's paying off. I am on my third month with Vinny and passing my expected goals. So treat yourself and invest in you. Vinny is the coach to get you to you goals.

The best trainer I’ve had!

I have worked several trainers over the years that go through the motions and Vinnie is the best trainer I have ever trained with. He pushes you during every session. He will teach you news ways to exercise and build your body. He does not just stand around and put you through the motions, he will teach you form and knowledge that will change your workouts. He will consistently teach you different exercises for body parts (wonder where he finds them) and will leave you the feeling you have worked yourself to your limit each and every time. Work with him once and you will be addicted. He is definitely the GREATEST trainer in Miami.

Vinny was a perfect Trainer. He whipped me into shape, while giving me the tools to affect my own workouts. The results had me looking and feeling amazing! Everything I learned has allowed me to maintain this. Bradford S -NYC Founder Ebay

I trained with Vinny while he lived in Baltimore and it was the best trainer experience! He is dedicated to your personal success and growth, and it shows. He is encouraging, challenging, and refused to let me give up. I wish he hadn't moved from the area!

I would highly recommend Vinny to anyone who is serious about making fitness gains. He is kind, inspiring, attentive, and creative - everything you can ask for in a personal trainer.

Jack C.

I highly recommend working with Vinny in any capacity (business or training). I have worked with a couple of trainers in the past and Vinny is far and away the best trainer I have ever had. Vinny has an incredible ability to inspire, push and hold his clients accountable.

Kyle K.

Vinny is one of the kindest, most attentive, and toughest trainers I’ve ever had. His mix of immense knowledge of the body, innovative techniques, and attention to detail (i.e. form, function, nutrition, etc.) helps him push you to your highest level. Giving up is not in his vocabulary and he takes it out of yours! He’s transformative and a master at what he does. Plus, he’s just plain fun! Each session is full of laughter, great conversation, and LOTS of sweat. You can’t go wrong with Vinny...he’s the best!

In 2016 I tore my ACL and had surgery. Ever since my injury, Ive always told myself that I could still be Superwoman. Training with Vinny has taught me that Superwoman is obtainable, but I need to want it more than I did. I've had a few trainers in my time (before and after injury), but Vinny has proven to be the best for several reasons... his attention to form, smallest details, individual barriers and blind spots. He has consistently pushed me beyond where I thought my max was and all with the same attention to form as rep #1. His creativity planning the workouts speak to how well he understands the body and his individual client. He is a Master of his craft.
