Steve Van Zandt

Owner & Exercise Specialist


Steve is the company owner and founder of SVZ Internal Performance Center. In the face of a confusing and contradicting fitness industry many people struggle to find a strategy that is both manageable and sustainable. Steve believes in a fad-free approach to exercise that must be perfectly tailored around an individual’s goals, lifestyle, physical abilities, and structural limitations.

Prior to his career as an exercise specialist, Steve led soldiers as a Sergeant in the U.S. Army, which included a year tour in Operation Iraqi Freedom. Steve has since obtained numerous certifications and degrees including being Florida's only Mastery Level Resistance Training Specialist (RTSm) and course instructor, NSCA’s Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist (NSCA-CSCS) and personal trainer (NSCA-CPT), and ISSN's Certified Sports Nutritionist (CISSN). He also holds a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science & Health Promotion, and a Masters degree in Health & Fitness Management, which included the highly touted Muscle Activation Techniques™ Specialist Certification (MATcs).


Steve’s knowledge in biomechanics and force principles has allowed him to establish a diverse client base ranging from post rehab individuals to elite level NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB athletes. Steve maintains a high thirst for knowledge as he continues to tirelessly dedicate himself to daily study and research.










Exercise Specialist


Aaron’s goal as a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT) and Muscle Activation Techniques™ Specialist (MAT™) is to keep everyone moving properly. The goal in mind is to make you feel and understand your body so you know when something isn’t right. Aaron’s treatments are for your everyday person, cyclist, runners, triathletes, body builders and more.

Types of body work include: advanced neuromuscular therapy, pain management, muscle spasm treatment, and kinesio taping certified by RockTape.

His passion for helping people achieve their personal goals is achieved by focusing on optimizing their body's mechanics through his custom therapy. Body work is an essential part of injury prevention during moderate to high training loads and is also very important for recovery.
