Meet Our Trainers

Branden Boston 

International Sports Sciences Association Personal Trainer
Major: Philosophy

"The ability of the human mind to push the body beyond its limits never ceases to amaze me. I made a lifelong commitment towards a healthier version of myself when I was 16 years old after being tired of my low energy levels and feeling inadequate when playing sports with my disciplined friends and peers. Though making simple adjustments to my eating habits and daily exercise routines, I felt completely transformed in a matter of months and felt a certain drive to share that transformation with the world around me. I brought that optimism with me to the men's and women's Bodybuilding team which I am now the president, and looking forward to helping any genuinely passionate individual trying to bring healthy changes in their life through weight Training."

Danny Indorato 

 The American Fitness Institution Personal Trainer
CPR Certified 
Major: Allied Health

"I am currently a junior from Boston, Massachusetts. I am an Allied Health major with a concentration in Medical Sciences and a minor in Psychology. I have always had a passion for helping others reach their fitness goals, because I believe that living a healthy and physically active lifestyle is the most rewarding choice someone can make. My job as a personal trainer is extremely rewarding for me because it gives me the opportunity to improve the quality of someone’s life. My exercise plans will accommodate for any specific fitness goal that my clients may have. Some examples of fitness goals I have previously designed my workouts based on include the following: weight loss, muscle building or toning, improving overall strength, maintain health, and also prevention of Cardiovascular Disease.

My purpose as a personal trainer is to provide a friendly and supportive environment to each of my clients so they are able to effectively reach their fitness goals. I strive to not only improve the physical health capability of each client, but also their general knowledge of health and its importance."

Joel Metzger


National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) Certified Personal Trainer
Major: Exercise Science

"I served in the United States Navy from 2007-2011. It was during that time that I developed an acute passion for physical fitness. As my knowledge grew, I found myself helping fellow shipmates. Upon getting an honorable discharge out of the service, my predisposition to become a personal trainer was top priority. I received my certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine. I am now at UT in a strong pursuit of a bachelor's degree in exercise science emphasizing athletic training. I am confident I have the capability to train and get anyone to their specific goals with a constantly expanding, diversified knowledge of training techniques. I look forward to meeting you and am excited to guide you into your pursuit of excellence."

Melissa Levy 


American and Fitness Association of American (AFAA) Personal Trainer
Spinning Certified
CPR & First Aid Certified

"I am a junior at the University of Tampa.  My major is Human Performance with a minor in Business administration.  I absolutely love what I do; helping people achieve their fitness goals that they strive for is truly my passion. Being an athlete my whole life, I experienced being trained by a trainer for many years. I really looked up to my personal trainer as a role model. When I was employed to work for her 7 years ago, I began to learn more and more about the ins and outs of personal training. After being in the fitness field and having the experience of working in a gym, in October of 2013 I had the great opportunity to get certified in personal training. In May of 2014, I also got Spinning certified.  Ever since my certifications my knowledge has been expanding I am currently in the process of getting my CPT and PET certification through the National Academy of Sport Medicine . The past summer I trained all types of clients from eight years old to sixty years old, but I especially work with college and high school athletes. I would have to say that conditioning and high intensity training is my specialty. I have taught all types of fitness classes including, Spinning, Beach Boot Camp, Fusion, TabataBOD, TRX , Strength training and Basic Training. My favorite part about personal training is the bond and relationships I develop with all of my clients, which I believe is extremely important."
