UHD's Very Own Named One of Houston's Top Fitness Pros

Along with the sweltering temperatures of summer, many Houstonians are trying to meet their healthy lifestyle goals. To help get motivated, the Houston Chronicle recently announced the top fitness pros in Houston after a open call for nominations in May.

And, UHD's Sports & Fitness trainer Sandry Vergel made the cut. The 32-year-old, who has been a fitness trainer for 12 years, is certified in all Zumba levels, including toning, step, gold, aqua and kids.

"My goal in every class is to provide a fun, positive environment that allows every student, faculty and staff to have a blast," said Vergel.
