Hi there! I was traditionally a marketing major myself who ended up working retail management in beauty supply. I always felt like i wanted to help people but i did not know in what manner at the time! Thanks to a close friend who asked me "Why dont you become a personal trainer? You love to sdtay fit as it is", i chose top persue this path. I couldn't believe the thought never crossed my mind so i signed up for Equinox Academy classes and after my first class i knew i found my true calling in life!

It's been an absolute pleasure knowing and working with Joe. He is very knowledgeable about his field, and listens to all of your concerns. If you are looking for a true professional who actually cares about his client, come to this guy!
I really enjoyed working out with Iosif. I reached out to him for coaching because I knew that with his accomplishments in Parkour, he could help me get the fit, active, healthy body that I wanted. The workouts were tough, but never boring and I could see the progress I was making week after week. He made sure my form was correct in all of the workouts and I never experienced any injuries or setbacks. My brother and father now work out with him and have both made excellent progress.
Iosif is a phenomenal trainer and teacher. I’ve been training since 2011 however once I started training with Iosif in 2017, he has taught me new, innovative ways to train I’ve never thought of. He is creative with his routines and spot on with his nutrition plans. He pushes me to my limits, then helps me surpass my limits the next session. Iosif makes the session fun and my knowledge, confidence, strength, and goals have increased beyond my wildest imagination!
Iosif and I trained in the park near my house. He taught me to rethink training outdoors. He was engaging and challenging while also being fun. He also went the extra mile by making me a list of exercises and explaining exactly how I'm supposed to execute each one. I would definitely train with him again in the hopes of learning more about strength training.
Dima H Iosif is clearly very passionate about his work, he instantly makes you feel comfortable and at ease while training, no matter what your fitness goals I am certain he will be more than able to take you there. My fitness level has rapidly improved and I feel confident in training by myself now because he gave me the right tools and knowledge through our PT sessions.
When I started with Iosif I had not worked out in over 5 years. He eased me into a routine and was great at keeping my motivation up! He changed up the exercise every session which helped me stay interested and on track! Can’t recommend him enough, whatever you are trying to achieve he will help you get there!
Iosif is the best! He tailors your workout to your goals and capabilities, I saw results instantly after training with him for a couple weeks. He pushes you just to your limit and sometimes even past what you think you can do. He’s also just a great guy, very friendly and professional - I’ve seen trainers on their phone the whole time they’re with a client and Iosif is not that type. If I could afford it, I’d train with him every day. Thanks, Iosif!
Iosif is a great PT. He listens to what I want in terms of my goals and tailors the program accordingly. He always tries to mix it up, so that I don't get bored of same exercises, and to keep my muscles guessing. He is always on time (or early), professional and understanding about my flexible and often last minute travel schedule. I would recommend him whole-heartedly to anyone looking for a sound and robust Personal Trainer.
Iosif is a terrific trainer. He is always on time or early, and is very professional. But most importantly, he is on top of his game as a trainer. He assesses and knows just how much to push, while keeping it fresh. My prior experience with trainers was drudgery...with Iosif, I look up and our sessions are over. I strongly recommend him if you are looking for a serious but down-to-earth trainer.
Excellent trainer! Really takes time to understand your needs and what works best for your body. He is always on time, professional and flexible with your schedule! 100% would recommend!
Very professional. Creative sessions. Diverse training programs targeting core muscles. Highly recommended.
