We carefully hire and train our team of talented coaches at Advanced Wellness. Technical expertise and experience matter, but so does a positive, empathetic and aspirational attitude. Meet our friendly team of training rock stars:

Robbi Shveyd
Co-Owner, Coach & Nutritionist
About Robbi Shveyd

Robbi Shveyd grew in up in Los Angeles where she was involved in gymnastics, dance, and softball. Robbi has her bachelor’s in nutrition and master’s in kinesiology. Robbi whole- heartedly believes that attitude is everything and strives to be positive at all times while at Advanced Wellness! When a client is having a rough day, she simply thanks them for being at the gym that day and gives them props for just showing up. Robbi got involved in the health and fitness field because she truly loves helping others feel their best. She is our nutrition coach and counsels all members about how to get the most out of what they put into their bodies. She is known as “Mama Bear” at the gym because she takes care of everyone (staff and clients alike!).

Favorite go-to snack: Apples with peanut butter.

Favorite exercise: Single leg slider deadlifts.

Leo Shveyd
Co-owner and Program Designer
About Leo Shveyd

Leo Shveyd was born in the USSR and moved to the US when he was 7 where he grew up in Moraga, California. He played football and basketball growing up and has been involved in strength training since high school. He graduated from UC Davis and has a law degree from UC Hastings. He traded in the suit, tie and briefcase for shorts, a t-shirt, and gym bag back in 2004. Leo does all of the assessments for new members and is the “mad scientist” behind the awesome workouts at Advanced Wellness. When he is not at the gym, he is an adoring father to 2 daughters (athletes of course!) and LOVES spending time with them and wife, Robbi (also co-owner of AW). His nickname at the gym is “the enforcer” because he is meticulous about technique.

Favorite go-to snacks: Macadamia, cheese and avocados.

Favorite exercise: Single leg dead lift.

Meagan McGovern
Director of Marketing and Coach
About Meagan McGovern

Meagan McGovern was born and raised in San Francisco, where she played several sports growing up including soccer, volleyball and basketball.  In high school, she did musical theater, danced and played field hockey as well as lacrosse.  Clearly, she has fantastic energy and time management skills!   She received her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees at the University of San Francisco and is now a fifth-grade teacher at Sherman Elementary School.  When she is not teaching or coaching, she spends her time hanging out with family and friends, and traveling.  When a client is struggling to get through a workout, she ALWAYS reminds them of how far they have come and finishes each workout with a big high five and smile!  She is known as Meagan “Trainer” at the gym (an obvious play off of the singer Meghan Trainor).

Favorite on the go snack: Fruit, hummus and Lara Bars (she also is obsessed with La Croix water!).

Favorite Exercises: Kettlebell swings and jump squats.
