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 is your favorite motivational quote?
“Success is a Choice.”

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.

Coach Dawn

Certified Nutrition Specialist

What do you like best about working with the kids you train?
I absolutely love seeing them make progress and accomplish things that they didn’t think they could. Each client is different and has their own personality and things going on in their life. I like getting to know and understand them so I can help bring out the best in them, build their confidence, and let them see how awesome they are.

Experienced training a wide range of ages. Coached girls and boys soccer teams, helped manage a premier soccer team, taught preschool and religious ed, assisted in classrooms, and raising two cool kids who are entering adulthood.

What inspired you to get into fitness & training?
I have always been athletic and love playing every sport I can. I started going to a gym for weights and cardio classes when I was in my late teens and fitness has been a constant in my life. I worked in business for corporations but I’ve always had it in the back of my mind that I would like to have a job in fitness. Once I had my children I left my corporate job to raise them. I volunteered in their classrooms, taught preschool and religious ed., coached, and managed their soccer teams. When my children got older, I wanted to work again and the natural fit was obvious; to combine my love and knowledge of sports and fitness with my experience and love of teaching.

I am passionate about helping people achieve their potential. I like to play many sports recreationally. I live an active, healthy lifestyle of outdoor activities, working out, and eating well. I like to create and remake recipes to make them nutritious and taste great. I consider food as fuel for the body and mind to maximize performance in sports and everyday life.

What is your favorite motivational quote?
It’s actually my own sort of quote. “If you think you can’t, YOU CAN. You just haven’t figured out how yet.”

What would you say to parents that are considering having their children train at B.E.A.T.?
I don’t think you’ll find a better place. Your children’s safety is at the top of our list. We always take the time to communicate with our clients to make sure there are no present injuries that will be worsened by a session. We have the knowledge and will modify moves for individuals. We will never overlook an issue a client may have in order to throw them into a group’s cookie cutter workout. We have a whole body approach with our athletes (mind, nutrition, rest, activities). We appreciate and understand that they are all different and we treat them with respect. We truly care about each of our clients and take the time to get to know them.

Coach Julia

Certified Trainer

My name is Julia Campagna; I am a very self-driven, humble and compassionate person. A NASM certified personal trainer currently working towards my Masters in Registered Dietician. I graduated Cum Laude from Iona College, where I played D1 soccer and was Captain my senior year. I have been an athlete my entire life, so I have always been surrounded by health and fitness. Fitness has taught me a lot about myself and my body, helped me set goals for myself, lead me to a healthier lifestyle both physically and mentally, inspired my decision on my future career, and allowed me a pathway to influence others.

After college, I started a fitness Instagram platform with one goal in mind; to motivate others. My dream is to be able to help as many people as I possibly can reach their goals, achieve overall health, and ultimately become a better version of themselves. I am willing to do anything and everything to better myself and those around me, no matter what it takes. Not because that is what I should do, but because it is what I love to do.
