Mario Riveira | Degreed Personal Trainer
As a Bay Area native, I believe exercise brings infinite value to one’s life. Through that belief, my personal training focus is guided around that philosophy. I am currently working with clients individually, in pairs, and hosts a corporate wellness program who all have a variety of goals.
I had my first taste of weight training during college; this inspired me to explore bodybuilding competitions. I placed 2nd in the Natural ABA Oakland. At San Francisco State University I joined the Gator Rugby Football Club and fell in love with the sport. This experience has given me insights that I impart with all of my clients no matter what level they are training at.
Our first session will consist of a 20-30 minute assessment to discuss your diet, goals, and exercise background. I will also assess your kinetic chain and individual biomechanics such as balance, posture, and strength. I will then create an individualized program based on your specific needs and goals. I will use forms of the periodization techniques to challenge your stage of fitness.
