Sarah Santangelo:

Sarah has been teaching group fitness at the Waynesboro YMCA since about 2010. She has helped develop our program into what it is today.  Sarah started as a sub for our aerobics and circuit training classes, and was thrilled to be one of first instructors to launch Les Mills BODYPUMP. She is now an Advanced Instructor in BODYPUMP and CX-WORX, and is certified in SH’BAM and BODYCOMBAT. Sarah is also a certified coach for Les Mills GRIT, which has provided her with experience to incorporate HIIT principals in classes and personal training sessions. Sarah also maintains a national level accreditation in group fitness through ACE and personal training through the ISSA.

Denise Metzger:

Denise is a great motivational instructor. She primarily instructs BODYCOMBAT and BODYPUMP but also leads HIIT and core classes when substituting. Every morning Monday through Thursday Denise is here at 5:15am waiting to push her class through a great workout. Denise has gone through her own weight loss journey and volunteers to pass along her experience with our Choose 2 Lose program. She is always willing to help a beginner learn the basics of a Les Mills class. If you are interested in trying Les Mills for the first time or want to join the motivated 5:15am family, check out one of Denise’s classes!

Javier Reyes:

Javier (or call him by his initial: J., whichever is easiest for you) was born and raised in Puerto Rico, left for College to the cornfields in Iowa and moved East upon graduation to start his career. He has worked as a Biomedical Engineering Technician and currently works as a Software Engineer contracting with the Department of Defense. His hobbies include boating, jet-skiing, knee-boarding and power walks in the Summer months and Video gaming, digital photography and trying his hand at sewing during the Winter months. Wanting to pursue a healthier, fitter lifestyle he started doing BODYPUMP as a home program and fell in love with the program. He decided to pursue becoming a Certified BODYPUMP instructor to help others find their way into fitness and to stay fit while enjoying the fellowship and fun of group exercise. With the help of fellow BODYPUMP instructor Shane Rouzer and the awesome BP team members here at the Y he successfully completed his training and became certified! He also has been known to throw punches and have a blast doing BODYCOMBAT and occasionally dips his toe into Yoga, to help loosen up his muscles when they feel tight. When not BODYPUMPING, he also enjoys driving and wrenching on his Chevy truck, taking his dogs on walks and boat rides and camping down at River Bend in West Virginia. He calls Waynesboro home where he lives with Ed, his spouse and his two crazy dogs, Penny & Doria.

Angie Mower

I am married with 2 children and live in Waynesboro.

Some of my interests include running (2x marathoner, trail runner, relay participant, etc…), personal development, DIY, organizing, antiquing, etc… And, of course, fitness! I am a member of Waynesboro’s local running group, CFAR (Community, Fitness, Fun, Friends and Running).

In September 2015, I became a group fitness instructor for the YMCA. I have instructed H.I.I.T. (High-Intensity Interval Training) classes, have instructed Mix ‘N Max (for 2016 C2L participants), and am currently instructing Les Mills GRIT (certified October 2016).

My personal fitness goals are to qualify for the Boston Marathon (which I’m attempting at my 3rd marathon) and to eventually attempt the JFK 50 miler (My mom, dad, husband, brother-in-law, and sister-in-law are all finishers…so it’s a family thing!)

My group fitness goals for GRIT class participants are to provide a non-intimidating yet fun and inspiring environment that is team-oriented yet personalized to each individual. To become a better instructor for participants, I plan to pursue advanced training in GRIT. I am also considering other Les Mills certifications to broaden what classes I can offer to participants.

Have you given GRIT or any other group fitness class a try? If not, what are you waiting for? Key word is “try”. It’s about “your” workout and doing what “you” can. There’s nothing quite like working out with a group of people who will inspire you to move when you grow tired. Quite often, you can do more than you think!

Join me for GRIT (H.I.I.T.)!
Monday/Wednesday 9:00 a.m. – 9:30 a.m.
Tuesday/Thursday 4:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
