Certified Coaches

Medardo Lomeli


I have been an athlete ever since I can remember, and because of this, fitness has become a lifestyle for me. I started getting interested in strength and weightlifting when I was 15 years old, and when I turned 16, I took it even more seriously by studying biomechanics and sports nutrition to improve my performance. By the time I turned 18, I decided to major in Nutritional Sciences at a local university. Around the same time, I had begun training two friends who were overweight and wanted to get fit. Once I had finished college, I moved to Pittsburgh and got my CSCS to train people at the JCC.

“Pain is just a weakness leaving the body!” My fitness journey began in high school when I started clocking long miles on the cross-country team. I played basketball, softball and tennis (not very well) and had my first gym membership as soon as I could drive myself to the gym! While I have logged countless miles, deadlifts and hours with personal trainers, teaching DEKA classes will be my first formal experience coaching others on their fitness journey. I love group fitness because of the motivation and camaraderie of my peers. Working out isn’t easy but having a great group of people to do it with makes the experience way better!

Matt Hunter


Sports and fitness have been a part of my life since I was a boy; growing up I played high school sports and eventually played college baseball. Transitioning from a college athlete to Army soldier, I continued to grow my knowledge of health and fitness. While moving through the ranks, I was able to use this knowledge after becoming a Sergeant to lead my team in daily PT drills. I earned my CPT through NASM and was able to obtain my current position at the JCC. I am excited to use my own weight loss and fitness transformation, knowledge and experience to help others in their goals to live a healthier life.

Rachael Speck


Fitness is more to me than just a necessity to maintain my physical and mental health, it’s a hobby that’s grown into a passion. I started by taking Group Exercise classes at the JCC right after college and loved them so much I got certified to teach them. 12 years later, I am certified in 5 different programs. I love JCC fitness because of the unique community aspect working out at the JCC brings and because I to interact with so many different members along various points in their fitness journey.
