Neal Zumbro

Kettlebell, Self Defense, Boxing, and Martial Arts Instructor

Neal Zumbro was an Infantry Sergeant of Marines with multiple combat tours. After his service  ended he wanted to earn a black belt in a martial art and found his way into the world of Brazilian  Jiu Jitsu in 2005. To supplement his martial arts training he was introduced to kettlebells and he  quickly realized the benefits of the functional training and the no nonsense approach to weight training. Gone were the days of loading heavy plates on bars and waiting in line for equipment, as  they were replaced with shorter and more effective workouts.

These kettlebell workouts allowed  for more time to recover before his daily jiu jitsu training in the evenings in addition to developing  immense amounts of core and grip strength not typically found in his routines using bars and  machines. Neal would later receive the prestigious title of RKC in 2009 from the kettlebell guru  Pavel Tsatsouline after completing the "Russian Kettlebell Challenge". Armed with a kettlebell,  Neal now took his workouts outdoors and saw the world as his gym. Neal earned a black belt in  Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in 2012 under Renato "Charuto" Verisimo of the Nova Uniao Team of Rio De  Janeiro. Neal has since competed in two consecutive World Championships in Long Beach  California. He credits his regular practice of yoga, good nutrition and kettlebell lifting for his rapid  success in the sport of Brazilian jiu jitsu and his overall well being.

Mike Reidy

CSCS, SFG1, Weightlifting Sports Performance Coach Level 1,

My passion for fitness and specifically coaching fitness started  at Dominican College in Orangeburg, NY where I got my degree in Athletic Training.  Now having a background in rehab and athletic development led me to work with athletes of all levels and general population people looking to move and feel better and avoid injuries and improve their quality of living.   I have worked in conjunction with a nearby country club where I was a content writer on fitness for golfers and tennis players and overall liaison of fitness for that country club.  I love using all kinds of modalities especially Kettlebells,  different types of resistance bands and body weight exercises to teach students how they can improve there fitness and movement quality and do it in a small area no bigger than a living room.  I love the journey of fitness and I am constantly learning more everyday and love giving that knowledge to others.

The Scientific Method

ATP stands for adenosine tri-phosphate. ATP is considered to be the bodies "energy currency".  It is used in all metabolic processes whether at work or rest.  Different energy systems create and break down ATP, and are activated differently depending on how long and how intense the body is working.

Our programming is designed to activate each energy system and allow our members to reach their full fitness potential.

Some of our staff has conducted and participated in multiple scientific research projects.  We aim to stay current on the most up-to-date research regarding health and fitness
