Larry Piacenza

Trainer

In 1998 I was given the opportunity to become a SuperSlow® fitness trainer by Bill Bodle.

I became certified and started the process of learning the craft and how to apply my own “Art Form” to every workout so that my clients could get the most out of every session.

My approach to everyone who works with me is:
a.  Total commitment to achieving great form
b.  Total commitment to work hard

I would like to give special thanks to Bill Bodle,Ken Hutchins, Doug McGuff, Dan Carter, Tim Ryan and countless others who have contributed to my path and have helped me become professional.
