Certified Personal Trainer
My name is Aviv Wagner and I am a certified personal trainer. I have been working at the JCC since I arrived here from Israel 7 years ago. Before I moved to America I was a member of the Israeli Air Force and worked for the IDF as a fitness trainer for new cadets. My specialties are strength and endurance, sports agility, and weight training. I have taught both boot camp classes and P90X at the JCC. I look forward to helping each of JCC member reach his or her fitness goals. In my spare time, I enjoy playing soccer, trail running, and participating in events such as the Tough Mudder and Spartan Races.
