Vineyards Wellness Center & Spa welcomes new Personal Trainers to their Staff!
John Croce is a new addition to our Team! John is originally from Philadelphia, where he attended St. Joseph’s University and West Chester University for Kinesiology and Physical Education. He was the owner of Croce’s Sports Medicine Company in his Tri-State area; at the same time, he consulted and coached for the Penn State Women’s Soccer, Philadelphia Flyers, Philadelphia 76ers, Villanova University and various Olympic Athletes. In 2013, John came to Naples and became a faculty member of Keiser University in the Sports Medicine & Fitness Technology Program and a coach for the FGCU Men’s Basketball Team. Most recently, John was a fitness specialist at the Bonita Bay Club before joining the Wellness Center & Spa Team at Vineyards Country Club.
Gisela Donahue is also a new addition to our Fitness Team! Gisela grew up in Cape Town, South Africa and graduated from Cape Peninsula University of Technology with a BA in Events and Tourism Management. After college, she traveled and landed in a small ski resort town in Southern Vermont where she met her husband and opened a family style restaurant. Following the birth of her daughter, Gisela began to follow her passion for Health and Fitness. She obtained multiple certifications in Personal Training, Group Exercise, and Spinning and opened her own business, offering weekly group exercise classes and personal training. Naples, Florida was her family’s vacation destination for many years during their 13 years of residence in Vermont. We are grateful that Gisela and her family have now become full time Floridians and that she has joined the Wellness Center & Spa Team.
