Rob and Samantha are both certified personal trainers looking to share their knowledge about health & fitness to help you transform & become U version 2.0!
Uv2 (You Version 2.0) Fitness Uv2 Fitness was founded by professional musicians, Samantha Mera (singer) & Rob Spampinato (guitarist). Together they perform over 200 shows a year. When not on stage or in the recording studio, it's a safe bet that they can be found either in the gym or in the kitchen prepping meals. Here is their story: Samantha Mera was a volleyball player throughout high school and college. She has always had a passion for fitness and had been in the weight room since her high school years. However, it was during her early college years when she found her true love of bodybuilding and learned how to mold and shape the body. Rob Spampinato was a competitive martial artist, having earned black belts in multiple disciplines by age 18. Throughout his training, he learned the value of self discipline, humility and patience. From age 19 - 28, his music allowed him to tour the country and he was constantly on the road. Despite his best efforts, the long, crazy hours began to take a toll on his health. When Sam & Rob first met in 2012 through music, Sam had already been working as a personal trainer in Westchester, New York. At that point, Rob was overweight, unhealthy, and unhappy with his appearance. He also had high blood pressure, joint pain, and poor eating habits. With Sam's help and guidance, Rob was able to lose over 70 lbs. He now has lean muscle mass, a much healthier lifestyle, and was given the gift of a true passion for fitness. ---------------------------------------------------- We now want to share this gift with you and help you become a new & improved, better version of you!
