Jeff has been a personal trainer since 1997. Jeff found success with personal training by working with post rehab clients and clients with orthopedic conditions. After leaving the gym world, Jeff trained home clients as far as Stamford Connecticut. As he developed business in the river towns, Jeff opened his first Personal Training Studio in 2001 called The Training Studio, Inc. in Nyack, New York. Jeff’s enthusiasm to work with fitness worthy equipment and tools to enhance his clients health encouraged him to start the first Kettlebell Class in Rockland County, New York. One of the fitness worthy tools that Jeff was and is fund of is the great outdoors, In 2005 The Training Studio, Inc. relocated to a space across from the Nyack’s community garden park. At the park in 2008 working his kettlebell class Jeff became interested in group fitness. Jeff realized that even though his personal training programs were well respected in Nyack and surrounding river towns there was a large part of Nyack that did not have the means to become healthier and fitter with one on one training. So after watching group fitness programs and keeping an eye on CrossFit since 2005 Jeff saw that CrossFit was much deeper than the general perception. From studying the CrossFit manual Jeff shared a strong belief that being healthy and being fit are congruous. Jeff started the first CrossFit affiliation in Rockland County New York. Since then he has seen a much different fitness world but still remains a Personal Trainer first and foremost. You will see Jeff coaching and enjoying the work outs with some early riser friends at the 6am classes.
