Sandra Pereira

Personal Trainer & Fitness/Yoga Instructor

I was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. From the age of eleven, I began playing soccer. My soccer experience, paved the way to who I am and what I do today.

After leaving Brazil for New York City in 1983, I was introduced to jazz dance. I participated in a choreography workshop, which inspired me to learn more about the body’s physiology and anatomy. In 1987, I began teaching a stretch and tone class known as the Nickolaus Technique.

Soon after, I discovered weight training, started pursuing personal training as a career and became Ace Certified. I also, went to Marymount Manhattan College, and took classes in the anatomy and kinesiology of exercise, the science of nutrition, and exercise for older adults amongst others. While working in a variety of gyms and fitness clubs in New York City, bodybuilding became my sport, and in 1992 I participated in my first competition. In the mid 90’s, I decided to continue my education and graduated from Kingsborough Community College with an associate degree in applied science. Once in California, I completed the Yogafit training and became a Golf Conditioning Specialist through ACE.

After 20 years of experience, I still remain dedicated to the fitness profession, and am looking forward to continuing to learn and grow in my chosen field.
