Valerie Faber serves as the Assistant Director of Fitness/Wellness for University Recreation. Before joining CMU in January of 2022, Valerie was creating communities and connection through health and wellness programs at YMCA’s, Non-Profit Organizations, and local schools. She promotes culturally diverse programing that allows our students and community to show up as their authentic selves, while in a safe environment.
Valerie has spent the last 14 years in the fitness industry, leading group fitness programs for a range of individuals from preschoolers through older adults; leading transformative programs for special populations and emphasizing the importance of holistic wellness.
Her goal is to help others create a practice that is sustainable and fulfilling, whether that’s a combination of strength training, dancing, cardio, or whatever’s calling you on any given day. She knows variety is the spice of life–both in and out of the gym.
