Seas is a newly certified personal trainer at the YMCA. She received her certification through the American Council on Exercise (ACE) in October 2016.
Along with personal training, she is involved in aquatics at the YMCA. She is assistant coach of the MCY Marlins Swim Team, lifeguards, teaches swim lessons, and is a member of the new Master Marlins Swim Team.

Peltier has been a certified personal trainer since 1998, when she received her certification through ACE (American Council on Exercise).
