I was quite leary about training again since I have a very bad knee issue, BUT, Joel knew exactly how to work with this issue. I've worked with 5 different personal trainers in the last 7 or so years and Joel is hands down the best, most creative trainer I've experienced! Joel Is knowledgeable, kind but tough at the same time...the perfect balance! Joel is hardworking, pleasant and innovative. He knows a lot about anatomy and I feel much stronger already. I am able to do so much more than I was 2 months ago! Thanks Joel :)Jan 31, 2020Verified
Working out with Joel has been an amazing experience. His knowledge and guidance has lead me to see results already. If your looking for a personal trainer that has your goals in mind and challenges you to push yourself after each workout, you honestly can't go wrong with picking Joel.Sep 15, 2019Verified
OUTSTANDING PERSONAL TRAINER!! I've worked with other trainers in the past and there is no comparison - he is by far the best. I work out with Joel in my building's gym and he is very creative and resourceful with the equipment at hand. The exercises he gives me are efficient and well thought out in that they work out several parts of the body at once. Joel is incredibly knowledgeable about exercise science, nutrition and the body. Not to mention, he is a pleasure to work out with: fun, motivating, interesting, professional and super smart! The sessions go by quickly. One day a week we have a boxing based session - great fun and an excellent workout! I've noticed many positive changes in my body after a very short time. I can't recommend Joel enough. I'm so happy to have found him!!Feb 16, 2019Verified
I did a search for a Massage Therapist a few months ago and Joel's name popped up on my list, among others. I sent him a message to see if he had any available openings and it was THEN that he informed me that he is actually a Personal Trainer and doesn't do massage therapy:-( However, he did let me know that if I ever needed a trainer that he'd be more than happy to help. I just really appreciate Joel's quick response, his professionalism and his willingness to help. I would ABSOLUTELY hire him if I ever needed a Personal Trainer!Jan 16, 2019Verified
Joel is a great personal trainer. He takes the time to get to know his clients and their needs, strengths and weaknesses and he helps build on all of that. Bonus — he’s got a great personality and practices what he preaches. Everything he makes his clients do — he does himself.Nov 25, 2018

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?A private gym on 57th between 9th and 10th, that I like to use, asks for $15 dollars for the session. Compare that to other private gyms asking for $30 in manhattan.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Getting to know each other is important to the client/trainer dynamic. Learning why you started, and what motivates you is what makes your goals mine. Fitness assessments are important to start our workouts at your perfect metabolic resistance. Readiness questionnaire will also assist in this task.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?1- I have a NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine) Personal Trainer certificate. 2- I have an Associates in Science for Health Professions. 3- I’m working on my Bachelors in Exercise Science with a focus on physical therapy. 4- CPR/AED
