By the end of sophomore year she had declared food and nutrition as her major. You can see that maintaining optimal health has always been a strong interest and a main priority for Micheala. As she was finishing up her degree, she decided to use her passion for fitness to pursue a career.

Luis Medina

Personal Trainer, Vitality Winter 2016 Intern

Luis A. Medina is a natural born athlete from San Juan, Puerto Rico, who lives in the Boston area since October, 2014. Early in his childhood he demonstrated great athletic abilities and perseverance which made his parents begin a quest for the right sport for him. Since age three, he was exposed to judo, swimming, baseball and excelled in all, but none of these were quite the right fit, until he first entered a gymnastics arena. He knew then he had found his perfect match, at age seven. Ever since that day he has dedicated a great part of his life to gymnastics in many different ways.
