Hello! My name is Stepan Andranikian and I am an American Council on Exercise Certified Personal Trainer & Functional Training Specialist. As a trainer my goal has always been to teach individuals how to pursue a healthy lifestyle through exercise and movement. For the past three years I have been training clients of all ages and athletic levels to achieve their health and bodily goals. I have worked as a strength and conditioning trainer for college athletes in SUNY New Paltz and ran a Boxing/MMA fitness group exercise class for the past two years at New Paltz's Athletic & Wellness Center. I have experience training elderly clients and individuals with hip, joint, knee, and shoulder impingements.

Stepan is a man who really knows his way around fitness. He doesn’t just instruct his clients, he wants the best out of his clients. His tenacious training ability and incredible knowledge of personal training shows why he’s a trainer you’d want to hire. It’s a good time for him.
If you want a personable and funny trainer, Stepan is your guy. He’s well informed, has a passion for training and is always around the gym if you have any questions. What’s more is he fully adapts to your needs and desires. Act fast because he books up quick; can’t recommend him enough!
My training experience with Stepan was stellar. He is a character and is so so personable. He gets to know your needs as a trainer and pushes you past the point of you think you can do. He always made me empty the tank and give it all I had and I had an overall great experience. He’s very knowledgeable about proper form and technique and he teaches as you go so you can carry that knowledge out when you’re training alone. Highly recommend!!!
I've worked along Stepan as a trainer for a better part of 18 months. I have seen him grow into an amazing strength and functional fitness coach. His experience goes far beyond the gym due to his knowledge and study of the body as a whole. A session with Stepan is about figuring out what your body needs to be stronger and working out the fundamentals before making advancements.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Stepan over the past two years and supervise him working with clients and supervising a fitness facility. He is always ready to help coach any patron on their form and is very good about working with them to make sure they feel how to do it correctly, instead of telling them something and walking away. He also excels in teaching an MMA Fitness course if you’re looking for a new variety to add to your workout! He is a very dedicated trainer and takes great care of his clients. I would personally recommend him to a friend that is interested in personal training!
