TESTIMONIALS

Joey has really helped me in a way I never expected or experienced before in exercise- through weights. It's my first time for having a personal trainer. And I would highly recommend him to anyone. I'm 69, average build, no body builder type to be sure! And I've found Joey to be always good natured, very careful and attentive to my particular needs. He makes it his top priority to not hurt me, ge has a very gradual approach or program for increasing strength, and Joey is focused on technique and skills that I also can also take home with me. His insights are professional, personal, and creative.

I am not sure what we did to get so lucky to have Joey as our get-your-body-and-your-life-together-all-in-one coach, but I am so grateful. His gentle yet firm yet knowledgeable manner has helped us both trust him but also push ourselves beyond what we thought was possible. He's taught us the unimaginable - to love working out. And that can only come from his big heart and his most sincere intention to get you the most for your effort. Always enthusiastic; always kind. I am grateful we have him and we have never felt better.

Joey is a truly amazing trainer. He has an impressive knowledge of sports physiology, and keeps close track of how far you’re doing with each exercise, challenging you and making sure you’re moving forward safely and steadily. He pays very careful attention to your posture and movements as you exercise so you avoid any injury. He’s also got great advice about diet, nutrition, and weight loss. He’s also just a great guy. I can’t imagine someone who brings​ together more of the qualities you’d want in a trainer.”

Joey Cifelli, BS. CPT.

Founder & Certified Personal Trainer

I am a certified personal trainer with more than 10 years of experience. My athlete training, academic background, a​nd work in therapy and sports medicine give me a unique edge as a personal trainer.


Before I became a personal trainer, I was a football player. However, an injury halted my athletic career, and I then poured my passion for athletics into my studies, eventually earning a B.S. in Exercise Science and Sports Studies (Applied Kinesiology) from Rutgers University.


I then went on to work in physical therapy and sports medicine at the prestigious Princeton Orthopaedic Associates, where I focused on resistance, range of motion, and cardiovascular work. At Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, I worked with patients undergoing physical rehabilitation and earned accolades for patient care and safety.


In the 4 years I spent at Crunch Fitness Union Square, the fitness chain’s flagship location in New York, my experience and education set me apart and allowed me to connect with a variety of clients at different fitness levels and ages. I quickly rose through the ranks and became Master Personal Trainer.

Gabrielle Wade, MS. RD.

Registered Dietitian

Gabrielle Wade is a Registered Dietitian and a Certified Personal Trainer with a Master’s Degree in Clinical Nutrition from NYU. Gabrielle completed her dietetic internship at Lenox Hill Hospital on the Upper East Side in Manhattan.


After completing her internship, Gabrielle worked in a corporate gym as a trainer and dietitian, but she quickly realized there were many misguided women and men with unhealthy relationships to food and fitness. Gabrielle began working with these clients to help them utilize fitness and nutrition positively rather than negatively. Gabrielle later worked in an eating disorder facility helping clients heal their relationships to food, fitness, and their bodies.


She recently opened her own private practice in Greenwich, CT, working primarily with eating disorders and menstrual disorders. Gabrielle also enjoys working with athletes, teaching them to fuel their bodies properly for their respective sports and goals.
