Hoboken Fitness That Fits You: Your Questions Answered By a Head Trainer

Waking up at 5am and going to the gym every day is such a daunting thought that even folks who were high school or college athletes scoff at the idea. Combine the stress of cooking, cleaning, caring for children, paying bills, having somewhat of a social life and, of course, working, and for most people the idea goes right out the window. The challenge of just working out at the gym and eating healthy, clean meals can add more pressure and fear to an already stressful and challenging daily routine.

The personal trainers at New York Sports Club have a proven track record for helping you overcome your fears, tackle your challenges and ultimately become a better YOU.


What are your goals? Do you want to be able to run a half marathon? Do you want to avoid medical issues that run in your family? Maybe you want to be able to do 30 pull ups and 20 jumping jacks – whatever your goals are, the professionals at NYSC can help you get there.

“Whenever we partner together with a client, it is never about just working out for a few weeks or a few months. What we do together is start a journey that they are going to be on for the rest of their lives – we are not just changing your body; we are changing your mindset,” says Gabriel Vasquez, a senior manager at NYSC.

Personal training is much more than someone just telling you what treadmill to run on or which TRX bands to use. Working with a personal trainer affords you an assistant, cheerleader, nutritionist, scientist and life mentor. “Smarter choices and smarter decisions – it starts in the gym and continues to your daily life,” added the former football and lacrosse coach.


Dedication. Desire. Discipline.


Do not give up. Vasquez recollected stories of clients with varying goals:

  • To find a significant other
  • To be able to work out and be fit while raising two 5 year olds
  • To be able to stand in front of a room and give a speech without feeling embarrassed

In each story, it was clear how much sacrifice each person had to endure to achieve their goals, and Vasquez was there every step of the way. “I can’t help you until you help yourself. You are the focus and driver of your life – I am here to help guide you along the way,” recounted Vasquez.

I would love to work with a personal trainer, but it’s not in my budget.

Perhaps you’re working out 3 or 4 times a week, but are you studying the human body? Are you in tune with the latest findings in supplements and nutrition? Are you regularly adjusting your routine and not allowing for your body to adapt and limit progress?

Do your homework, read books, go online, and invest in yourself. “Sign up for one session just to have somebody watch you and ensure you are doing productive routines or have a friend study you to get a different perspective – the last thing we want is for you to hurt yourself and then be out for a few weeks or have an injury in the future,” Vasquez advised.


The personal training team at NYSC prides themselves on supplying you with a tool belt for success in your life. Everything that you may need is right in front of you; helping move roadblocks and find and utilize your inner strengths in any way possible is what they will be able to do.


“Release the stress and negativity and just go after it!”
