About Troy

I grew up overweight and decided to turn my life around in my early teens. Training gave me confidence, strength, discipline and a place to relieve stress. It is my hobby as well as my passion. As I learned more about fitness, I realized It could use it to help those around me the same way it helped me.

My goal is to one day open a fitness center of my own that includes programs for overweight children and families. I want to not only help those already struggling to reach their goals but to also reduce obesity where it starts world wide. I began my career as a trainer in order to gain the experience to achieve that goal and because I love it. I graduated from Rutgers with a Bachelors in Exercise Science and Sports Management. From there I started as a Personal Trainer at Equinox, rising to become one of their highest tier trainers and earners at my location within 4 years. Now I own my own personal training company called Mettle. Within my tenure as a trainer and nutrition consultant I have worked with the obese, elderly, youth, those going through cancer, those wanting to lose weight and those wanting to gain muscle. Now its your turn, lets reach your goals together!

When I started working with Troy I was battling major knee and back pain. Additionally, I had hit a plateau on my body composition after losing 50lbs two years prior. After three months of dedicated work with Troy, I was able to increase my 10 rep squat max by 120 lbs. My knee and back are now stronger than ever and my pain is completely gone. Also, my body composition has improved dramatically. I reduced my body fat by 2.5% while simultaneously gaining 7 lbs of muscle. I highly recommend Troy as a top trainer in the competitive NYC market.


Putting the pedal to the mettle every day -- Troy is an outstanding trainer and fitness professional, who consistently pushes me to greater endurance and feats of strength. By expertly navigating between what I can do today and what I want to achieve tomorrow, he keeps our sessions challenging yet engaging, with steady progress and great energy. On top of that, he is always flexible with my sometimes erratic professional schedule. Can't recommend him more highly!

Over the past two years, Troy has transformed my mind, body, and spirit. Troy’s discipline and determination, for both himself, and his clients is what drove my results. Shortly after I began training with Troy I realized that other trainers I had previously worked with were holding back. Within 4 months my endurance was at an all time peak, I had built a noticeably stronger and more defined physique, and achieved a dedicated mindset where working out became the thing I looked forward to every day. Within a year of training with Troy, I went from someone who never possessed any form of athleticism and sat on the sidelines to completing both a Tough Mudder and Spartan Race. I was a believer that your genetics are your genetics and having the body you want was out of reach. Troy changed that for me.
