Steve Vicera founded Sommet Fitness in Scottsdale, Arizona. For nearly 20 years, he has been helping people reach their goals for better function, greater fitness, and an overall sense of well being. His special brand of training begins with stabilization. “You can’t load weight to an unstable foundation… you will get hurt”, Steve explains, “A concentration on core stabilization and then an integrated training approach complements the body – makes it more functional and improves its appearance.” A certified ACE trainer, Steve was awarded “Mr. China” in a body building contest in 1989 and he went on to earn titles in the “Super Body Fitness” and “Mr. Philippines” competitions in the 1990’s. Stott Pilates Certified in Mat, Reformer and trained in Cadillac, Chair, and Barrel equipment, Steve specializes in spinal stabilization and corrective exercise. Steve has organized Asian women’s body building contests, fund-raising 5K and 10K runs, and has refereed power lifting competitions. Gaining recognition for his emphasis on safety and function, he consulted for a major revamping effort of fifty Philippine fitness centers. Steve was a strength coach for students in a Philippine high school and enjoys working with children. In 2006, Steve was inspired to help children in the Philippines who are neglected and abused. “Arizona to Asia”, a non-profit organization, was created through an all-volunteer effort. Nearly $40,000 was raised through Arizona to Asia to serve and empower these children through short-term residential care, individual and family counseling, medical attention, and educational support. Steve has two wonderful children of his own and a wife who shares his vision for a fitness training business that gives Phoenix and Scottsdale the opportunity for more convenient, high quality fitness and a balance lifestyle.

    "Steve you are the greatest!  After five years I still enjoy our twice-a-week physical and mental therapy sessions!  Ha.  Seriously, I'm proud of what I've achieved  in strength and endurance.  No more steriod shots for my weak back & my knees are almost like new due to your personally designed regimen for me.  THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!"

    For over two years I have been under the fitness guidance of Steve Vicera at Sommet Fitness. I originally started working with Steve prior to my daughter's wedding. My goals were to lose weight, re-shape my body and gain core strength. Through strength training exercises, mat and Reformer Pilates and cardio workouts I have achieved a much more firm and toned body. Steve has extensive training and knowledge and the ability to help all who enter his studio. His patience is vast and he is always ready to adjust or modify movements in order to achieve the necessary results. I cannot praise him enough or recommend him more highly. If you wish to have a well functioning body in the best shape it can be in, Sommet Fitness is the place for you. Andrea K., Scottsdale, AZ

    I've been a client of Steve's for more than 4 years now. I have injuries to various joints, and Steve knows my limitations and he knows when to push me. His gentle (but insistent!) demeanor makes working out a pleasure. Steve has a vast mental inventory of exercises at his disposal, so when I am experiencing a "bad day" with one of my joints, he can always offer me an alternative move to accomplish the same effect without further stressing my injury. He is keenly aware of how the body works, and as a result, I trust Steve implicitly to keep me functioning to the best of my ability.

    Sarah Bradley I still refer to how I learned so much from watching Steve train. He takes his time to really make clients understand movements and how the body works. I was and am inspired by his training.

    Beth Southworth Steve gently pushes you to a level you won't get to on your own. He does so in a gentle and refreshing manner which most trainers cannot do. And, I feel 2" taller after working out with Steve
