- History in Basketball and Competitive Cheerleading
An athlete and leader from a very young age, Regina’s enthusiasm for sports and fitness training began while she was a student-athlete herself, involved in basketball and competitive cheerleading. Her passion for health and fitness grew even more as she completed her bachelor’s in Exercise Science from Hofstra University.
Regina brings a plethora of coaching experience to UpFit from previously working at Parisi Speed School, New York Sports Club, and Blink. She has worked with large groups (20+), smaller groups (10+), and in one on one personal training, and prides herself on being able to work with people of all fitness levels and backgrounds.
She focuses on strength and conditioning, speed and agility, injury prevention techniques, and recovery. Her commitment to helping clients reach their goals also means designing programs that are fun and engaging to keep people motivated. Over the years as a coach and trainer, she has grown a deeper understanding and appreciation for being able to help others obtain their personal goals and improve their athletic performance.
One of Regina’s passions is the continuation of education in the health and wellness field. She enjoys exploring new places and trying new things. Her life mantra is “Never stop. Never settle,” because we can improve ourselves each day.
Paul has been serving the fitness industry since 2008, and brings a wide variety of experiences including working with NCAA Division I athletes, corporate executives, retired baby boomers, and homemakers. His passion for sports and athletics as a youth sparked an interest in a career as a physical therapist, but soon realized that sports performance, strength and conditioning, and fitness training were his true callings. This started as a student intern at Cutting Edge Sports Training at his alma mater at the University at Buffalo. Working with the local student athletes furthered his interests in the field and led to internships at Fordham, Rutgers, and Baylor Universities.
With completing his master’s degree in Strength and Conditioning at Springfield College, he earned positions of assistant strength and conditioning coach at Trinity College, and head football strength and conditioning coach at Western New England University.
Deciding to pool his experiences of collegiate athletics into working with the general population, he let his passion for the field fuel his dedication to positively impacting the healths of all his clients and those close to him. He currently practices boxing, is an avid combat sports enthusiast, and is looking for his first competitive matches as an amateur. His hobbies include reading and traveling, and he prioritizes spending time with his family and close friends.
