Barbara Casper

Certified Personal Trainer

NASM National Academy of Sports Medicine

I have been working out and pumping iron all my adult life and had the benefit of training with two professional body builders, who competed and won numerous contests all over the United States and ended up in Muscle magazine. They were diligent and detailed.

I also managed a gym in Key Biscayne for a number of years but came to realize that there is nothing more gratifying and rewarding then helping someone metamorphosis into a better and healthier lifestyle. Age is not a barrier. The young, the mature or the immature.

It's never too soon, or too late.

Nudge Health Coach

MORE ENERGY, BETTER SLEEP, INCREASED STRENGTH & FEELING GREAT!!!

These are the reasons I fell in love with fitness & why I continue to adopt healthy lifestyle changes today.

Exercise, along with healthful eating & support from friends & family, has helped me to overcome many challenges in life. And that’s why I have made it my career to help others live to the fullest by making small behavior changes -one by one- that add up to success, self-confidence & satisfaction

After 13 years as a health professional, my focus is to improve overall quality of life for my clients. We will work together to outline the most effective program for your fitness level & goals and using the Nudge Health App which allows me to follow your progress inside & outside of the gym by syncing with your smart phone or wearable device.

Polly Foster

Certified Personal Trainer

ACE Certified Personal Trainer

 

 

I was certified through the National Strength and Conditioning Association from 2005-2014. After a debilitating ankle injury, I racked the kettle bells for awhile and pursued different paths to enhance my professional career. In 2017, after being hired to manage a private gym in Colorado, I decided it was time to get back to doing what has always been my passion...helping others live their best lives. I am excited to bring that passion to Vero Fitness!

I believe that fitness is a lifelong journey and that our focus changes depending on what stage of life we are in. My training style emphasizes functional, full body movements to keep our bodies active and ready for everyday life. I believe that consistency is the change, but that variety keeps our systems guessing, which leads to adaption, improvement and ultimately healthy bodies and minds. 

While I have trained athletes for triathlon and various high school sports, my gratification comes in working with anyone who needs guidance with starting or sticking with a  day to day routine to stay on a path of lifelong health and fitness.

Life is about balance, progress and fun. Come see me to get fit for life and be in the journey!
