I started training with Steve about 4 years ago. Having already worked with a half dozen trainers over a period of a dozen years, I knew immediately Steve was different. From our first workout he emphasized function for real life everyday. He demonstrated a deeper understanding of body mechanics than anyone with whom I worked before. What I never expected was that due to unknown congenital deformities, I was about to undergo two complex spinal surgeries. Steve functioned as my partner in my recovery, working hand in hand with my physical therapists. He met with my other caretakers to understand the uniqueness of my situation, to bounce ideas around to safely work within my limitations while rebuilding my strength and condition.

I continue to work with him three days a week and I sing his praises to all who will listen. He is a trainer committed to helping solve your unique problems. He is thoughtful in his approach and is continuosly seeking out new learning. Whether you are young or old, in perfect health or facing your share of challenges, if you are committed to your goals, then Steve will commit to teaching you, coaching you and training you so you may achieve them.

I have been training with Steve for almost 3 years. He helped get me back to exercising after abdominal surgery, customized exercises to help my lower back and encouraged me to reach my weight loss goals. Steve and Chris are great to work with and understand how hard it is to juggle children work, etc. and still find time to keep fit and healthy.

I am 66 years old and have been training with Steve Cioppa for a year and a half. I feel very comfortable and confident in his skills as a trainer. I trust him to initiate and guide my exercises with the correct posture, stance and or position. He attends many continuing education seminars related to aging bodies. This knowledge combined with his understanding of nutrition is helping me to increase my strength, overall health and fitness. Training with Steve has helped to increase my stamina when skiing and the distance I can drive a golf ball. I would strongly recommend Steve Cioppa to my friends.

Steve is an exemplary trainer. He has a way of extracting the most from his clients and the personality to make the experience enjoyable. Steve is no “90 day wonder”, he had put in his time over many years learning the kinesiology of movement related to exercise and the corresponding elements of nutrition. With this knowledge and the infinite patience of a good teacher, Steve will give you a huge bang for your fitness buck. Even better, he really knows what he’s doing and after working with him you’ll find yourself in the best shape of your life!

The best thing I did before surgery last year was work with Steve on increasing my core strength. At first, I had trouble standing up from a chair without my arms. By the time I had surgery, I could stand up holding a 10 pound weight. That made the post op recovery so much easier. My arms were tangled in IVs and blood pressure cuffs. I didn’t need my arms. I could crunch my belly to sit up in bed or stand up from a chair. I’m sure my recovery went much quicker with his continued encouragement, at a less intense level post-op. Thank you, Steve!!

Steve is an outstanding trainer. Steve has helped me along my weight loss journey. He has helped me lose in excess of 70 lbs. Steve has helped me not only lose fat, but gain muscle. I have become the fittest I have ever been in my life. Steve’s boundless energy and expertise in proper exercise execution are the right combination of motivation that I needed to continue on my weight loss journey. Steve’s extensive knowledge and positive disposition is just what this girl needed!

I am a primary care physician and I’ve seen what bad trainers can do. Steve and Chris are consummate professionals who are passionate about their work. They know as much about anatomy and function as many MD’s. They make detailed assessments and tailor personalized workouts that are effective and safe. I wouldn’t trust anyone else.

These guys are the best around. They take the time to understand each one of their clients on an individual level by providing assessments to get to know the right programming necessary to reach their client’s goals. The programming is not your typical cookie cutter “Big Box Gym” style that you see way too often. Their attention to detail and quality of services stand out from the rest. If you’re ready to make a lifestyle change, these are the fitness professionals you need in your life.

Steve and Chris are very knowledgeable trainers, very pleasant and they care about their clients. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

As a former coworker of both Chris and Steve, I have witnessed not only their dedication in assisting their clients in attaining and maintaining physical fitness but also their successes in improving their clients’ quality of life. They have helped people of all ages reach their goals. Working with Steve or Chris is an educational process as well as an exercise and diet program. Anyone looking to improve their physical fitness and quality of life should contact them for an assessment and plan of action.
