Lionel Young




Lionel is the middle child of 7 boys, so this led to him playing sports early. His love of basketball and football lead him to mixed martial arts. After competing in several professional bouts as a mixed martial artist and professional boxer, he found himself working with strength and conditioning coaches. After years of training people for fights and working with his own weight coaches, he decided to try to become a certified personal trainer.

Upon graduating from AAPT in 2017 he has been working in the field ever since. He has a vast knowledge in weight loss, core strength, and strength & conditioning, with a background in wrestling, boxing, Muay Thai, and Brazilian jiu jitsu.

News & Events

“I very much enjoyed my membership with VIM. I have to say that the highlight of my experience was personal training and small group training with Valerie. She was extremely committed to my success and helped me establish an effective goal plan. I saw incredible progress with her (I lost 10 pounds) and I am stronger, happier and healthier. I also really enjoyed her style for leading small group and yoga classes. It is clear she is passionate about this work and dedicated to her clients.”-Ani
