What is The Fitness Academy?

The Fitness Academy is a personal training studio, in its fifth year in business in the center of Ridgewood, NJ, that is designed to give the client the education they have been looking for (even if they didn’t know they needed it!) So many of us go into our local gyms and just hop on the treadmills, play around with the machines, maybe swing by the free weights and feel like we’ve put in a good day’s work…but have we? Ask yourself – What type of program are you on? What type of results are you looking to gain? Should you be spending so much time doing cardio? Are you properly lifting those dumbbells, or are you one wrong move away from throwing your back out? Fitness is a part of our daily lives, whether we like it or not. From the young athletes to the moms bending down to pick up their infants, we use our bodies and our muscles, specifically, for everything. The Fitness Academy is here to help guide you to make the lifestyle changes that will make you look and, most importantly, FEEL BETTER!


Why would I use a Personal Trainer?

Well, ask yourself a few questions about your current training routine…

  • “Are you seeing results?”
  • “Have you plateaued?”
  • “Are you enjoying your workouts?”
  • “Are you able to stay motivated and consistent?”

And the most important one of all…

  • “Do you feel confident you know what you are doing with both your program and your form when performing certain exercises?”

Why choose an independent trainer over your local gym trainer?

To put it simply, a gym trainer works for the gym and an independent trainer works for YOU!


Who is a good fit to work with a Certified Personal Trainer?

Anyone looking to improve both their mindset and their physical fitness. The Fitness Academy accepts children starting at age 10 all the way through the senior citizen just looking to improve his/her quality of life.

One of The Fitness Academy’s specialty areas are Young Athletes. It is the coach’s job to teach the game to the athlete; it’s our job to take that young athlete to the next level both mentally and physically. Grammar, High School and College sports are as competitive as ever. Having a personal coach to help with building the proper mindset on what it takes to be a great student athlete and how to properly work harder than the competition can make all the difference come scholarship time.

Another area we specialize in here at The Fitness Academy is Post-Rehabilitation. If you have ever had surgery and have gone through your rehabilitation program, it is vital you continue to build up strength. Most rehab centers do an excellent job of repairing an injury; we help rebuild and protect those muscles/bones from getting re-injured.
