I have almost 30(!) years of health and fitness experience and have trained and provided nutrition consulting for the New York Mets, selected members of the Giants, as well as actors and celebrities. I've also created and managed several personal training departments at major health clubs in New York and New Jersey and regularly give nutrition and wellness seminars.
I have several training styles, depending on your goals, abilities and limitations. I can push you hard, but always keep it safe and smart. I'm a believer in positive reinforcement and feeling good about what you're doing. Injuries are always considered, as I've had a lot myself! I have my own semi-private studio that is clean, discreet and never crowded.

He made me feel super comfortable in the beginning and walked me through everything , but also helped really push me. I've been working with him for a year now and have seen serious results. I highly recommend him!
Both Rob and Steve know their stuff - they aren't "failed" athletes who thought it would be cool to be lifelong gym rats; these are people who are committed to being on top of what's happening in the fitness world, and sharing that with you. I've just started seeing Steve (he and Rob train here primarily, with occasional visiting trainers), and find the sessions to be great challenges, incredibly motivating, and kicking my sorry ass. Whether its TRX, kettlebells, biking, cross-fit craziness, or a million other techniques, Rob and Steve are going to work with you to learn about what you want to achieve, and then set out to help you achieve it. And gleefully help you suffer along the way. In other words, be prepared to work - and work hard. Sessions run more than what you pay with a training program at NYSC or other larger-scale membership gyms, but they're worth every penny, in my opinion, and my body seems to think so, too.
