My favorite client story

All of Cathy's clients have different challenges and goals. They have different reasons for why they started their fitness journey. Some have wanted to get back into shape, some need the motivation to keep going (don't we all), and some clients continue their fitness journey to maintain where they are. They are all successful and each one is Cathy's favorite! She is passionate about fitness and enjoys the journey that each of her clients have embarked on. You will feel empowered and successful with Cathy!

My favorite exercise

Running was Cathy's favorite exercise after completing her first marathon. However after completing her first triathlon Cathy realized that any and all total body exercises do it for her. As long as Cathy's moving she's happy.

Cathy Florakis is a GREAT trainer ! Our sessions with her are fun and and a really a good workout ! We workout on the lawn and when the weather is bad the front porch . We all wore masks and felt secure that we were all safe. So glad I found FYT!!!

Cathy Florakis is the best! Working out with Cathy is fun and wow she plans amazing workouts. I have worked out with many trainers in Manhattan and I was pleasantly surprised that Kathy's workouts were hard BUT FUN!!! Other trainers keep looking at their phones and really seemed bored- that is such a downer- Kathy is right in there with you and it makes such a difference !!! Next week I am upping the game to twice a week!
