How Type A Training Can get you in The Best shape Of Your Life

We know that reaching your personal fitness and health goals isn't an easy thing. Learning new exercises that work for you. Making sure you're doing the proper technique so you don't get injured. Our personal trainers know that most importantly is being as efficient as possible with your time when your at  the gym. Lets face it, your time is important and wasting it will only lead you to quit because of the lack of results you getting.  For some it can be down right intimating which can be another reason many people don't start an exercise program.

Lastly and I know everyone will agree is having to actually get to the gym. You need to choose if you going before work, during work or the very demotivating time which is AFTER WORK.  Do I need to mention weather and traffic? Many times these road blocks can prevent you from even starting a fitness routine.  This is where we step in. We bring the fitness to you in a safe environment making it easy for you to make that commitment to your health.

Get To Train With One Of Our Specialists

Strength Training

Do you do a lot of cardio? Our personal trainers in Manhattan know in order to get the most out of your training and to reduce injury, strength training must be included in any fitness routine.

Core Conditioning

Our personal trainers in Manhattan not only is this type of training helpful for any type of sports that you play but it will help reduce your risk to injuries by improving your posture.

HIIT Training

Like high-intensity workouts? HIIT training is the number one way to do this. Burn more calories and metabolic rate for several days after each workout.

Yoga, Pilates, and Flexibility

Many people complain of being too tight or not moving fluidly throughout the day. Many times a simple solution is doing moment training to help with this. Move with more ease and less effort with these routines.

Boxing and Kickboxing

Want to punch harder and faster in classes or just want to learn basic or advance moves? Let one of our instructors perfect your form. Not only to reduce your injury if your doing it wrong but punching and licking you will get much more out them when done correctly

Mix Things Up

Getting bored with the same old workouts? It's true that this does happen, that's the reason our trainers recommend every 2 to 3 months you should be changing up your routine to keep progressing. If not then your workouts will not be as effective as they once were. 

Change Trainers Every 12 To 16 Weeks!

You can change trainers (optional) every 12 to 16 weeks. This will insure that you are always learning new and alternative ways to stay in shape. Strength training is only one component but we also have experts in boxing, pilates, yoga, and much more!

I became a Certified Personal Trainer in 2013 and have trained hundreds of clients in the last 5 years. I am a self-coached athlete training for life! I’ve been training myself for almost 10 years and specialize in strength training, general movement (“functional training”), and running performance. I also box, practice yoga, and live a vegan lifestyle.

I regularly write short and long training programs based on my current needs and goals. Some examples are: general physical preparation (GPP) lasting 3-6 weeks; sports specific training, and body-building style lasting 12-16 weeks. The intention behind my training is to get stronger and be ready for sprint competitions.

From my own research and experience, I’ve learned the best way to transform one’s mind and body is to have a well-structured and balanced training program. Strength training and proper recovery must be the foundation to any good program. It is essential for ALL of my clients to create a movement practice that is sustainable and relative to their lifestyle.

I follow a holistic approach to fitness; that means that throughout our time training, I will not only teach you about improving your fitness level but also how to elevate your life through balancing energy systems in the body (chakras), reducing stress by implenting a breathing and meditation practice, and adopting aspects of a whole foods plant-based diet to regenerate health.

I enjoy working with anyone who is hard-working and committed to their own development and self-improvement. I enjoy training beginners new to the gym as well as athletes of all ages.


I worked in an office for several years while training and teaching my arts and had to deal with chronic back issues and sports related injuries.

I am a certified Personal Trainer through National Academy of Sports Medicine. I have also been studying various martial arts and Tai Chi for over 10 years well as certifications in Pre and Post Natal Training and Progressive Bodyweight Training. I like to employ a variety of tools from weights, resistance bands, kickboxing and bodyweight training to get people to their fitness goals in a fun way. I am excited to be part of Type A Training and look forward to helping others live happier and healthier lives!


I was lucky enough to have been born into a family in which health was a way of life. From the age of 5, I have been a dancer and gymnast. While in High School, I decided to become a personal trainer, so that I could share my passion with others. I started off working in a gym, and loved every moment. Then I decided to open my own private business training private clients clients singular, in a pair, and in groups. All my clients became happier with themselves, and were excited to share their accomplishments with me.

What sets me apart from other trainers?

I believe in training my clients not just physically, but by educating them on how to live a healthy lifestyle. In time, the lifestyle becomes second nature. Besides for the fitness component, I educate about proper nutrition.

I incorporate many different styles of training. I train indoors and outdoors. In order to achieve optimal health, my sessions includes cardio, strength, resistance, and toning. Depending on each persons likes and dislikes, I have a vast selection of styles to chose from. Plyometrics, floor work, dumbbells, flexibility, pilates, dance, gymnastics, planks, jump rope, resistance, and more. At every level of fitness, cardiovascular health, strength, and muscle tone can be improved. I’ve trained all ages, children through seniors. I have trained clients with no equipment at all, using only body weight; as well as with various types of weighted equipment.

I customize each workout based on the individual needs and level of each person.

Each of my sessions are fun, unique, and sweaty!
