My name is Sergio Oliveira and I am a Software Engineer by day and a Fitbox Functional Fitness coach and member after-hours.

I believe in ensuring that all my classes are run with safety and effective movement standard as the top priority and if I can ensure that after every session members walk out more knowledgeable and one step closer to their fitness goal, then I have done my job correctly.
