Lance Persico

Performance Coach

After a successful career as a professional Rugby player in Italy, Lances passion for sport and lifting weights has carried him into his new career as a Smithfit Senior Coach.

Major knee reconstruction and 3 subsequent knee operations forced Lance to learn to listen to his body, overcome pain and create the change his body needed to progress and to do what he loves most…training.

“Training is my meditation!  It helps balance my stress and keeps me on an even keel.  Sure, I love being strong and staying good in shape, but for me, it’s more about the mind.  I’m most happy when I’m fit and healthy”.

A big softy at heart, Lance likes to keep our members happy.  “The most important aspect is that you leave feeling better than when you came in”.  Lance prides himself on reading people and knowing when to push and when to pull back to get the most out of their training.  Although easy going by nature, make no mistakes, Lance is here to make sure you get where you want to be!
