my life has completely changed. For the first time I actually look forward to working out. Thanks to his support with workouts and diet guidance, I am down from a size 18-20 to 8-10, a loss of 142 pounds in one year. Some fitness places say that they are no judgement, but Trainer Joe's really means it. I have felt comfortable and supported from day 1, even during semi-private small group sessions with people with different goals, shapes and sizes. No mirrors, no scales, no measurements other than how many more squats you can do. The people who come there are mutually supportive and amazing. - Christina L.
I have been training with Joe for almost a year now and I am hooked for life!!! Joe is fun, motivating and kicks my butt. I’m dedicated to toning up but, with 2 jobs, as a full-time attorney and mom, I have a really busy schedule and very little time to work out. Joe makes sure I hit every muscle group I need to work and mixes it up every time. I highly recommend training with Trainer Joe!!! - Karina L.
I can’t recommend Trainer Joe enough!!!! I happened to see Joe’s offer for an introductory training session pop up on my facebook page and thought it couldn’t hurt to give it a try. Well, I never realized how much meeting Trainer Joe could change my life.
First, I’ve never met someone who understands the actual science (physics, biology, chemistry) of exercise the way that Joe does. He not only thinks about WHAT specific exercise he’s going to select for you, he understands exactly WHY. He also understands the complex intricacies of combining a series of exercises and the desired effect he’s after for exactly which muscle or group of muscles. For those who have worked out with other trainers who don’t possess this skill (and I’ve never encountered another), the difference this makes is ENORMOUS.
Joe also has a way of knowing exactly how far he can push you and every one of your muscles. Just when you feel like you can’t do one more, he gets the exact number from you that HE expected. The result, you somehow leave each session feeling physically exhausted but mentally supercharged.
As I said at the start of this review, meeting Joe has changed my life. It’s more than a workout, if you’re ready to get serious about achieving your goals, ready to be pushed to the limits, Joe’s your man!! - Gina B.
Trainer Joe has a vast knowledge of best practices for well-being. He guides his clients on a journey of not just losing weight or building muscle, but what is best for them nutritionally and even spiritually. As a doctor, I trust Joe to train me in a safe and efficacious way, and I also trust him to train my patients that I recommend go see him. - Dr. Ila Clemente, DC
I have been training with Joe for more than a year now and can't say enough for how much it has changed my workouts, mindset and way of life.
Stats: I am down to 165lbs from 195lbs, Can do over 300 pushups in a workout and can do more burpies and jump-squats then I care to say.
In terms of just living life I approach food differently. Joe made it easy for me to tell him how I really was doing, knew when to push and way to tell me to take a step back. I took my little brother snowboarding last weekend and couldn't believe I wasn't sore at all. I did yoga and the lunges don't get to me at all. All credit to the work I have done with Joe and how it has translated into the other activities I like.
You rock!! And I suggest you to all my family and friends. - John Q.
Joe is a master trainer who specializes in helping people achieve their full potential, regardless of prior injuries or physical limitations. He is a super nice guy and non judgmental. He seems to have a strange ability to push you just enough to get results but without injuring yourself.

This place is amazing. I have only gone 4 times and have already noticed changes in my physical body as far as strength energy AND my blood sugar which is usually very high has been it's lowest and healthiest since being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I have also enjoyed good moods I'm more relaxed and generally feel great over all. The atmosphere is friendly, down to earth and extremely encouraging. This has been my biggest step toward achieving a healthier lifestyle and Joe's helps me stay motivated and it is easy to visualize my end goal which never seemed realistic to me before this

Let me start by saying I was the person who hated working out; I was bored easily and scared to try new things because I did not know what to do, so I quit whatever program I started. Then I met Joe who has changed my attitude towards exercise along with my body. Joe is a perfect blend of tough (10 more...lets go!) and warm (Great Job!). He pushes you to achieve challenging yet attainable personalized goals. The workouts are diverse, demanding, energizing and fun. He is incredibly knowledgeable about all aspect of diet and total body health and offers up advice and solutions. Joe has set a new foundation for me for a healthier and more active lifestyle and continually pushes my limits to new levels. I am so grateful for making the decision to call him and having Joe as my trainer!

If you are serious about getting fit and healthy, Trainer Joe's is the only place you should bother looking. I've used other personal trainers, expensive workout DVDs, weight loss programs, boot camps and shake cleanses, but I am so lucky to have found Trainer Joe 6 months before my wedding! His master trainer status has left him with an unparalleled ability to be able to actually sculpt your body into the shape you are hoping for. Workouts always tended to bulk me up instead of trim and tone me but he knew exactly what to do to get me the slender and toned arms I hoped for on my wedding day (along with everything else I hoped for on the beach)! Aside from actually being able to help me achieve the weight loss and sculpting goals I had for myself, the most important benefit I got from our workouts was relief from my back problems. In the past, workouts would leave me with back spasms that would end up interfering with my progress and seemingly make it not worth the uncertainty of knowing how I would end up feeling the next day. Since beginning my work outs with Joe, it is like I have a brand new back! In the beginning there were exercises I could not do and some I could only do a few of before the pain kicked in. Now, we are both amazed that my back is no longer an issue during workouts, but also outside of workouts as well. Chiropractors, physical therapy and medicine couldn't do more than temporarily ease my discomfort, but he seemed to be able to correct the root of the problem. That was an unexpected bonus that I didn't know was possible and I will always be grateful for. Trainer Joe's also provided me with invaluable nutritional advice and is such a friendly environment that I actually look forward to every single workout. I don't want to sound like an infomercial, so I will stop! I just truly feel so blessed to have stumbled across a random recommendation for Trainer Joe's online almost a year ago, that I wanted to be able to pay it forward for someone else... Just don't book my time slots!

Trainer Joe - What can I say about him? I have trained under Trainer Joe’s instruction for 6 months, and the results surpass my expectations. I contacted him when my sciatica was at a place where I felt I could handle the touch of a trainer. A month prior I could barely stand erect, let alone walk without the use of a cane because my L4 was causing either constant numbness or pain in my left knee. Six months on, I am back to work, commuting on NJ Transit without use of my cane. I can run up the station stairs (even 2 at a time) to make my train. In fact, I am in better shape now than I have ever been in my life. Working with Joe is not just about getting a great workout, which you will get. Joe goes much further than that. Joe works with the whole person. He has a way of getting to know his clients on an individual level, and work with them on a mental, emotional, and dare I say “spiritual” level. When all aspects of the individual are touched and in sync, the results are profound. When I leave his studio, I am definitely beat up, but I am also energized, ready to take on my day - regardless of the mood I was in when I walked into the studio. I can say that with every session with Joe, I come out knowing something new about myself. I learn something about how my body works, how nutrition can affect the results, even how my environment can affect my mental state which affects my physical state. What can I say about Joe? I can say that regardless of your physical condition, or desired goal, Joe will get you where you want to be. This is Joe’s passion.

I have only been here for one session so far, But let me tell you, I have never had such a great and effective workout ( I say effective, already, because my muscles are still shaking from this mornings session). Joe defiantly kicks your butt, but its exactly what you'd want from a trainer. It is also a very comfortable and positive environment! I can't wait for my next session, I highly recommend Trainer Joe's!
Trainer Joe's is seriously life changing. I have tried everything and anything to loose weight and nothing ever worked, or lasted. Trainer Joe's changed my life in only three months. Not only did I loose weight, but I also learned how to keep it off. Having Joe as my trainer has been nothing but wonderful. He is very knowledgeable in all aspects of fitness and health, he will help you lose it and keep it off. I came to Joe looking for a coach to compete in a fitness competition. He quickly became a huge support and took me from out of shape , to getting ready for the stage. I see results I still cant believe. Trainer Joe's staff is also very accommodating and friendly, and will support and help you with all your fitness goals. If your looking to get in shape, and have a good time doing it, then I HIGHLY suggest you come to Trainer Joe's!!!

What I love about Joe is that he is extremely knowledgeable about the human body and was able to create a personalized workout schedule that catered to my body's unique strengths and weaknesses. Each time I met with him, he intuitively knew the level and intensity that my body needed at that moment and would modify my routine accordingly. After a full term triplet birth and extensive abdominal surgery, all in the span of a year, my muscles were weak.. In fact I had significant concerns with regards to training my abdominal muscles. However, Joe was able to help strengthen my core and at the end of four months had lost 40 pounds and toned my entire body. I looked and felt amazing. I attained these exceptional results just training with Joe without changing my diet or incorporating additional exercise. So worth it!
