I had the chance to train with Doug during a spur-of-the-moment session. I mention the timing because it speaks very much to Doug's training style: Creative, enthusiastic, willing and encouraging. He saw a lost soul at the gym staring into a full workout class, and took a free hour of his day to (literally) show me "the ropes" at the gym. I've always been athletic and love working out. I love a good challenge and a good coach. I also love variety, learning new movements, and pushing myself. But sometimes, someone else pushing you is just what you need. After getting my basic info, Doug put me through a series of exercises that I had never tried before. Kettle bells, ropes, new stability-based movements, etc. were the name of the game. He taught them quickly and effectively, then put me to work. It was absolutely awesome and unexpected. And my three-day soreness afterward was entirely welcome. If you need a great trainer who isn't messing around (but is still a warm-hearted human), then you need Doug!

I am very happy with the personal training I received from Doug Chironno. Doug is very knowledgeable about both fitness and nutrition. He took the time to understand my goals and tailor a program for me. I found the workouts both challenging and enjoyable and I’ve seen rapid progress in improving my strength. I would recommend Doug to anyone looking to get to the next level in their fitness. Thanks.

“I have been training with Doug since January 2016. The sessions have been tremendously successful - in that time period I have lost about 20lbs and become much leaner. Doug keeps the sessions interesting and challenging. I have been extremely pleased.

Unaizah M

I have been working out with Doug for a year now, I have lost about 3-4 inches in my waist, and lost a lot of weight”. Doug has also helped me with nutrition which has made me feel better and has helped me reach my goals!

Doug’s workouts are excellent! They are the perfect combination of high intensity work, cardio & strength training. He has helped me to achieve my fitness goals.

Kianna L.

Doug's class targeted other muscle groups on a deeper level the ones I can't normally reach with the exercises I'm doing. Thank You for the wonderful class and I will see you soon again.

Rita S.

Happy with the model workout classes I had with Doug! He knows and sees what you need and how your body works. I like that he takes time to see where your goals are and what you want to achieve.

I have been working with Doug for about 5 months now. Not only has he helped me transform my body & reach my goals, he is encouraging and truly cares about his clients. Doug knows his stuff! Doug has helped me get my waist & hips down to a size that I had been working so hard to get to for years. Doug not only knows what his clients need physically, but also he is very educated in nutrition. He has helped me tweak minor things diet wise, to see the results that I have been working for”. I have worked with many trainers, but Doug has been by far the most hands on, available & truly invested in my overall health, wellness and goals. I would recommend anyone just starting out to very experienced in the gym, to work with Doug. He has the knowledge and skills that can help anyone and everyone looking to achieve their best self.

Workout sessions with Doug always fun, engaging and 100% customized ! He was able to design a fitness program that fits my lifestyle, which involves a lot of travels and work dinners . Doug is highly professional and is driven first and foremost by seeing his clients get in shape ! I highly recommend him!

Anastasia C.

Doug is the best! Very professional and helpful trainer. He is helping me not just to get stronger but also we work on my injury to fix it with different stretches and exercises. Huge difference now since I’ve started. Let’s sweat and get serious!

Not only is Doug an incredibly inspiring and insightful trainer, he is also a healer. When I began working with Doug in December, I was living with painful leg injuries from the NYC marathon that were not improving, even after a few months of physical therapy...and I hadn’t been able to lift my right arm over my head for about six months due to shoulder pain. Within weeks of working with Doug, the shoulder pain disappeared and I regained full movement—it’s good as new. And after about a month of Doug's workouts, I was able return to running. Now, I am back to running most days of the week, including long runs of 10 miles. And thanks to the personalized full-body workouts he created for my unique needs and goals, I am stronger and faster. On top of all that, Doug has generously shared his abundant knowledge of diet and nutrition to help boost my body’s natural healing processes. Plus, he’s absolutely delightful company, too! Training with him is the best investment I have made in my health.

I've contacted Doug because I had to tone up and lose some inches for my modelling job and he helped me reach every goal I had for my body in 2 months! He's a very professional and friendly trainer. We worked by video chat since I'm from Milan and he gave me a workout and meal plan that was highly effective but still very easy to follow, with clear directions. He helped me form healthy workout habits, which I never had, and I'm very grateful for the work we had done in these months. I definitely recommend him to everyone who wants to work on their body and eating habits. 10/10

Doug is great. I had my first session with Doug last week. He was very careful to assess and understand my current fitness level and goals, and offered a lot of useful information. He wasted no time in getting me going with a well-designed first workout. I wasn’t sore the next day. I have had multiple trainers over the years, and Doug seems like he is going to be among the best. His nutrition expertise is an added bonus.
