Outside of sports, Spencer excelled in music as a member of the school pep band as well as a member of a rock band with a group of friends. While he hasn’t continued on his music path, he still enjoys playing guitar every once in a while. He also attended Berklee in Boston, MA for a summer semester in 2012 taking courses in Funk and Blues, Music Theory, and Electronic Production & Design.
Cooking is another hobby for Spencer Schneider that has turned into one of his greatest passions. When he was younger, he would always help his parents cook and has also gained experience working in restaurants over the past few years. After gaining this experience, he decided it would be great to combine his passion for cooking with his passion for volunteering and community work. He began volunteering with Second Harvest Food Bank to help families and children in need receive access to food and other valuable resources such as nutritional education and community kitchens.
Having made a difference with cooking, Schneider decided he could contribute to the community in other ways that related to his passions. As an avid skateboarder, he has found that skateboarding and the community surrounding it have made numerous positive impacts on his life. Through the skateboarding community he has found numerous charities and nonprofit organizations that serve to help kids and other individuals find their place in the world.
Professionally, Spencer Schneider has developed his own fitness facility and health and fitness program called Spencer Schneider Training. Within the facility, he has built customized training programs related to boxing, basketball, boot camp and other fitness routines as well as meal prep training programs to help individuals stay on track with their diets and health and fitness goals.
Before establishing a career a fitness trainer, Spencer Schneider was a gym regular. But every gym he ever worked out in seemed to follow the same tired format. Raised on sports, he decided to bring the world of athletics into his own fitness training plans. In Schneider’s view, working out doesn’t have to feel like work.

Even though his clients may not feel like they’re putting in hard work, the routines have paid off tremendously in helping them to achieve their goals.
