Bounce Bootcamp
By Victor Cabezas
New York, NY
Believe in yourself, train hard and stay active for life!
I have always believed in exercise since I was a kid and started weight training and got into sports early on. After 2 years in the Marine Corps, I became a certified aerobics instructor in August 1987 and never looked back. Lucky to find my passion for fitness and music and use them for all my students over the years. I have been voted best instructor in New York magazine and instructor of the year with the New York Health and Racquet Clubs. I love the connection I make with all my students old and new, and I have some students that have been enjoying my classes for over 20 years. I am a young, fit 46 year old and will continue my life in the industry for as long as possible.
I'm also a drummer and a DJ, Love karaoke!

    To all new instructors and trainers, experience, experience and continuing education. You must keep yourself updated through continuing education. Cert doesn't mean anything!!! After 20 years at HRC, he is still at the front line and top 2 at this competition now!! You know why, right?

    Victor initiates a tremendous energy into his step class. This is contagious and so visible among the participants as they dance both with him and to his alluring music. His step class is my favorite out of 12 classes that I do weekly at the NYHRC.

    I've been taking fitness classes at the New York Health and Racquet Club led by Victor Cabezas for the past 20 years. I started with his Step Aerobics class, and now also do his Kangoo Jumps class. I am far from the only person who's been this loyal for this long, and there's a very good reason why Victor and his classes are so popular. The classes are challenging, engaging, and they're also a lot of fun. With the great music mixes Victor assembles, and the encouragement for the members to participate and interact, a session with Victor feels more like a party than a fitness class. Behind the carefree exterior, there's a serious and dedicated professional. He's very careful to check that everyone is using good form, and has any equipment we're using set up for maximum safety. I think Victor is probably the best instructor NYHRC has, and he exemplifies all the ideals you're looking for on Fit or Flop.

    Victor is the best instructor I ever had. He makes you feel you are in a middle of a dance floor at Studio 54. So much fun.

    Victor is an awesome instructor! He's fun and everybody loves his classes, including me.
  • at 1:18 am on 6.04.14
    I need to work out only when it is fun. Running on a treadmill is not fun, and certain workouts are boring and torturous! I wish this was closer to me because I would totally do this! Great idea!
  • at 12:16 am on 6.04.14
    Victor is such a great trainer! His commitment and passion for fitness is inspiring!
  • at 11:42 pm on 6.03.14
    If I lived in New York City I would definitely join Vic's classes. I love his commitment and loved his personality.

    Victor Brings what's Needed: Multiple Levels of Fitness Knowledge, Personality, Motivation, Dedication (for over 20 Years), Inspiration, And Vision (not only for his Brand & his Program, but also for Each Individual that he works with!) He makes his classes Fun, and Worthwhile! He has been through the Hardest Boot Camp there is (United States Marine Corps), and understands how to get people "who thought that they couldn't..." to change their perspective to "knowing that they could" (this, as they realize they are actually doing it, and having fun while they're getting it done). It brings a confidence that can be talked about long after the class! Become "Victorious" with Victor! He will go each step of the way with you! Thumbs Up This Guy!

    Victor Cabezas is known all over the East Coast for being a really enthusiastic and motivating instructor. Ive taken a class or two in my day, and although Im not the fittest- he sure knows how to get you moving and grooving and really into it! His love of music from all different genres makes the soundtrack in class one you can really have fun with. I love him to the moon and back! He is the epitome of FIT!! Definitely deserving of the title to be America's Next Fitness Star.

    Victor is the best there is! He started his fitness career out on Long Island and since he's moved to work in NYC it's been hard to find anyone like him. He is a true motivator and entertainer. His classes then and now are packed out with people of all ages, shapes and sizes who want to be inspired to get on the fitness path and with his help you get there. His classes are like a party, you forget that you're working out, it's that much fun. At age 46, he's in better shape than people half his age. For over 20 years he's made fitness his life, he is America's Next Fitness Star!!
