"VIDA" means "life" in Spanish, and our mission is to help each and every client achieve their fitness goals so that they can enjoy life more. The more fit we are, the better we feel, and the better we feel, the higher the quality of our lives.


                       "Move Well, Live Well" - that is the essence of VIDA Performance!



VIDA Performance focuses on personal training, group personal training and Corporate Health and Wellness on-site programing. To us, fitness and coaching are much more than just exercising. VIDA Performance embraces a holistic approach to wellness with the goal of creating an overall healthier state of living. Our unique approach benefits people of all ages and all physical abilities, because we recognize that fitness training needs to be customized.  We believe that even small changes in our overall fitness can have a significant impact on our health and well-being.  VIDA Performance wants to help you ignite the inner strength and confidence that come with being more physically fit.

"My life would not be complete without helping others achieve a healthier lifestyle; a fitness based lifestyle is the catalyst to a more fulfilling and happier life."
