What inspired you to get into fitness & training?
Growing up an athlete and living in a house with an older brother really opened my eyes to a competitive lifestyle. We were always outside and playing different sports. As I got older and high school was approaching, my brother Bobby, stressed the concept of being stronger to compete against older guys. I was heading to Don Bosco and Bobby was already there. He knew that strength training was something that I had to get into if I was going to compete at the prep level. I started training at a local gym in Harriman, NY and also in my basement with an old weight set. I didn’t know how to train but I just started. I did what I saw others in the gym doing and loved how I started to feel and saw my body change. I was hooked!

The older I got the more I worked out and I was able to reach higher levels. My commitment to basketball grew and that was my passion. I played ball and worked out. I was able to start varsity for 2 years and then earn the attention of some colleges. I played at the collegiate level and when I was done the weight room was there. Fitness has been a part of my life for a very long time. Its helped me set goals, reach goals, and pursue what makes me happy. The fact that it is my career is a true blessing and I am so grateful for the support and encouragement of my family and loved ones. I left a career as a Federal Agent to open the small training business I started out of my parents’ garage. It was a “Leap of faith” but I believed in my vision and knew I could help others.

What would you say to parents that are considering having their children train at B.E.A.T.?
My facility along with my coaching staff is a place for your children to grow and develop. They are encouraged to set goals and will have the full support of every coach. They will want to be there and the lessons they learn will stay with them throughout their lives. Our goal is to make health and fitness fun and impact each athlete in a positive way every time we are with them as well as on the playing field and in their lives.

What inspired you to get into fitness and training?
My mom convinced me (with a little bribery) to join my high school cross country team after I received a letter from the coach asking me to join. In my first race I came in 3rd from last if I remember correctly, but I worked hard and rarely missed a practice. I made friends on the team and then joined Indoor and Outdoor track that year as well, gradually my speed and endurance increased. My sophomore year of cross country I was bumped up to Varsity. I ended up having a pretty great high school running career, competing in states and federations in cross country and finishing 13th in the 2000m steeplechase at Nationals in outdoor track. I was going to run at Binghamton University but a family tragedy caused my life to take a different turn for a while. Looking back years later, I realized that putting in the work and training consistently made all the difference in my athletic career, and that fitness and training helped keep me on a good path in life after that tragedy struck. In my experience, if you want to be great at anything you need to train smart, recover well, and study all the critical details necessary to improve and reach your goals. It always helps to have a coach to help guide you, give you perspective, and minimize the mistakes you make on your path to those goals. I love to study the science of training, nutrition, and recovery, and help athletes and adults reach their greatest potential possible.

What is your favorite motivational quote?
“Discipline is choosing between what you want now and what you want most.”

What would you say to someone considering training at B.E.A.T?
The fact that you’re even considering training with us means you have a goal in mind and you know, or have a feeling, you’ll need help to get there. That is the job of a coach, to help guide you somewhere you want to go when you cannot get there yourself. We have the knowledge, the desire, and the commitment to help you reach your goals. We never stop learning. Most importantly we CARE and we aim to always put our egos aside to do what’s best for our people. If you listen, learn, and work on implementing our advice you will reach your goals. We won’t let you down.
