ARE YOU READY TO POWER UP!
Hello to all visitors! My name is Angel X. Valentin and I'm an Independent Certified Personal Trainer & Sports Performance Specialist humbly serving several areas of NYC and Westchester County, NY. The business specializes in Men's/Women's fitness including Senior Citizens that usually have busy lifestyles & want to build muscle density by utilizing bodybuilding, powerlifting, & strongman-based principles.
I know the frustration of sustaining unrealistic, out-of-control lifestyles where you feel your body draining physically, emotionally, and spiritually. From obtaining odd-jobs to working constant 9-to-5 hourly shifts being micromanaged out of existence; your body starts to feel overly restless. From these experiences; I can aid you of managing these stresses with one simple piece of advice: A healthy body is a good body. If your current lifestyle controls you; you are in danger of total breakdown. If you want to break free from these conditions; it starts with a change of mindset or what I like to called: Everyday Strong Mindset.

My mission is to make my clients become stronger versions of themselves. In order to be healthy for the long term, you need the mental and physical determination to move forward. The goal for my clients is not to be just barbell or dumbbell strong however to become Everyday Strong. When you need to perform everyday tasks, just being barbell or dumbbell strong aren't enough to keep your bodies in the best shape possible. To become Everyday Strong; you will need to build your body aesthetically, with power, and strongman-like capabilities. This brings your body to the next level of beauty and strength. My clients will have the best looking and best performing bodies to accomplish everyday tasks.
Services & Rates
Are you tired of feeling weak most of the time? Do you want to become a healthier version of yourself? Are you ready to build some serious muscle? If you are then I will like to help you get there. I am currently working with Men & Women including Senior Citizens that have these characteristics:
1. They are suffering from muscular imbalances due to injuries, etc... and need the assistance to get back on their feet.
2. They want to take their workouts to the next level.
3. They want to conquer their insecurities while performing workouts in the gym.
4. They have busy lifestyles.
5. They have stalled on their training progress.
6. They lacked the motivation to exercise and need 100% total support.
7. They want to get started however need guidance and oversight to do it the right way.
8. They prefer to receive at-home personal training services.
The services I provide are dedicated into (3) three major areas:
Power Training: If you want to build armor on your body, you need to learn to produce power from your body. This training method ensures you build the foundation necessary to keep your body solid and upright. You will learn to "overload" your body so it can better respond to everyday tasks. If you do not have a strong foundation, your body will always breakdown.
Efficiency Training: Nobody wants to perform an exercise harder then what it seems. If you want to learn how to manage your training time, you must perform efficiently. This training method ensures that you are doing the exercise the right way so you do not waste time. This also means doing the correct training split(s). There are a variety of training splits to review to see what is best for you.
Strongman(Everyday Strong)/Endurance Training: Do you know that many of the errands people perform daily are based on Strongman/Endurance related tasks? You will learn to how to perform every tasks like carrying objects of different sizes, push/pull with the right muscle groups to increase overall muscular density & endurance. Your body will become leaner and meaner.
I also work with clients that have aspirations to be competitive in sport-specific athletics & weight-training related sports such as bodybuilding, power-lifting, and basic strongman.
All clients will receive an initial consultation to discuss goals in relation to health, fitness, and training along with a customized program.

Great News! The first personal training online ad has arrived. This ad focuses on my new client starter packages for Private & Semi-Private Personal Training. As major epidemics such as obesity, the rise of multiple people diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes or currently in a prediabetic state, it is much more important today to take care of your body. Feel free to share this ad through e-mail, print a copy for a friend or by calling multiple people to spread the message. This is now the time to take charge of your body and power up to the next level!
December 07, 2017
Today marks a very special day. It is the day where my website can be seen on various search engines (except Google) :) This is a great step forward overall to display my personal training services around the world wide web. If anyone tends to forget the site, all you will need to do is type "axvcpt" on the search engine. I recommend visitors using DuckDuckGo as their main search engine as they value your privacy, does not track your activity and has a friendly one-page search engine that scrolls down the results until the very end of the page. You will also see this website listed on the Bing, AOL, Yahoo, and Dogpile search engines. Cheers!

Merry Christmas and Happy Fit Year to all clients/visitors! I have created the The Happy Fit Year 2018 Act which will benefit everyone. This Act is available for a limited time so it is imperative that everyone takes advantage to reap its benefits. The main benefit is that this will be where all promotions will appear so make sure to review this website (https://axvcptpromo.carrd.co) periodically for more details. Who doesn't like a good deal? :)
December 26, 2017
I have made some modifications to the website. On the "Services & Rates" section, the wording on the training packages have been simplified to make it easier for all visitors to understand. The "Number of Sessions" are now known as "Sessions" and "Number of Weeks" are now known as "Total Weeks". These small changes have enabled me to make the table along with its grids much more eye-friendly.
February 07, 2018
Major improvements have been made on the "Services & Rates" section in this website. In order to better serve the clients, I have introduced two new bundles: The "Flex Packs" and "The Quarterlies". The Flex Packs are no-contract packs of 5, 10, or 20 (30 & 45 minutes only) for individuals that want the flexibility of picking their training days. There is also a special flex pack of 15 only available for 60 minutes. The Flex Packs do expire at 60 training days (Monday-Friday only) from the date of your first workout.
The Quarterlies are 30 or 45 minute groups of 24 individual sessions for people that can only workout two days per week due to their busy lifestyle. The great thing about these Quarterlies is that the workouts last for a full quarter (3 months) therefore renewal doesn't occur until the quarter is completed.
These extra additions will serve the clients' interests more thoroughly and produce welcoming results for both client and personal trainer. For more details, visit the "Services & Rates" section. I have also tidy up the "Services & Rates" section with improved borders with colors and added color dividers to improve the display of the packages presented. I am currently in the works of creating an ultimate bundle that might surprise all visitors.
February 08, 2018
Several decorated improvements have been made on the website. The first are that the font styles for the title of each page have been modified to better reflect the website and that includes making the font sizes larger. The second is that on the "Services & Rates" section, I have made the following changes: The creation of titles or headlines for each service provided to make the visitors more aware and properly identifying Private 1-on-1 Training and Semi-Private Training. I have also provided basic explanations of each service and its overall purpose. The third improvement is that I have change the title of the "Training Splits" section from "Types of Training Splits" to "Popular Training Splits" to better reflect today's fitness market.

The Spring Season is finally here (though Winter made a huge comeback yesterday!). Fitness is an important component of our daily lives. The ability to physically maintain our bodies in order to look better and to perform everyday tasks are goals people have in mind. There is one thing however that we tend to underestimate at times and that is the value of our health. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, Health means: the condition of being sound in body, mind, or spirit. Health does not view how physically capable you are of performing certain tasks or how good you look from the outside. Instead, health views itself by determining what you are doing to yourself from the inside. If your body, mind, or spirit are in shambles, your health suffers. It is pretty much impossible to be totally healthy when one of these three breaks down.
What we put into our body determines our overall health. One of the most well known health-related diseases is Alzheimer’s disease (closely associated as dementia). For many people, Alzheimer's disease is thought to be pass through via genetics from one family generation to the next however more studies are showing that less than 1% of recipients of this disease is from a genetic mutation. I came across an article from Dr. Lisa Mosconi titled "The road to Alzheimer’s disease is lined with processed foods" which explains in further detailed the correlation between what we put into our bodies and the effect of our health. Alzheimer's disease is most likely a direct result of years of poor nutritional habits, lifestyle choices, and stressful living. This is something that takes years to built up.
As a certified personal trainer; this is my overall opinion: If you put it into context, it makes perfect sense. Most diseases just don't appear "out of the blue" or "turn on the switch" as we get older. It is true that as we start aging, the way our bodies process things start to slow down however what we do with our lifestyle choices determines the state of health. When we eat the wrong types of food, our bodies tend to feel sluggish. When we do not sleep enough, our bodies feel tired. When our lifestyles become too stressful, our bodies release the hormone; Cortisol, which not only slows down muscle growth however also can add unwanted pounds as body fat and weakens our immune system. Do not underestimate the power of good nutrition. The American diet has become too refined with processed goods to make foods taste better and have longer shelf life. There are certain ingredients that we should avoid at least 99% of the time such as Trans-Saturated Fats and High-Fructose Corn Syrup. Trans-Saturated Fats expands the shelf life of many foods however shortens the life spans of our health (Oxymoronic, isn't it!). High-Fructose Corn Syrup is a combination of the sugar glucose that is modified with corn starch and corn syrup to create high fructose. These ingredients are easily absorbed in the bloodstream and are responsible for many health complications like weight gain, high LDL cholesterol, and increased liver stress.
It is important to take care of your health. When you have good nutrition, your physical and mental capabilities improve. When you add exercise to the equation; your mind becomes sharper, the body becomes stronger, and your spirit is positively elevated. If you want to live a life full of great memories and want to pass it to the next generation then it is time to better prepare your health so that the mind does not become mushed. What good is living a long life when you can not remember it?
If you have any opinions or comments, feel free to email me and let me know what you think about the article plus share it with your friends, family, or people you may know.
May 01, 2018
I have made slight improvements to the website. The first thing you will notice now is the use of underlines for certain headings and titles. The founder of carrd.co is consistently making progress therefore the website will naturally upgrade to make things clearer. The underlines have been added to give a much more professional look when all visitors view this website. I have slightly condensed the image gallery's size to better display the images. If you will like to set-up an appointment, please review the "Contact" section for more details. In regards to the new gym, it is about 2x larger than its previous location and they will be adding more equipment for the near future. I will provide an update when it happens.
August 16, 2018
It has been some time since my last announcement. I have been working on a few projects (i.e. website building, taking P.T. education to improve readiness for myself and clients), etc... I am also dealing with personal injuries. The injuries I sustained cause me to push some projects back and place some of the personal training services on hold. I am hopeful that by the following 1 to 2 weeks, my body heals much better to resume personal training services for my clients. I am currently working on self-recovery and finding ways to work around the injuries. The most important thing about this is to protect the injury from further harm. I am looking forward to positive things for the near future.
September 11, 2018
I have some positive news and that is the injuries sustained are healing much better. For the past several weeks, the recovery tactics I have performed are easing my training process. I am currently open to provide personal training services. One thing I have learned over the years is that you never know when an injury might occurred. The constant breakdown of muscle tissue (that is in itself a form of Rhabdomyolysis) will always increase your chances of an injury and it does not matter whether your technique for the exercises are good or bad. There are variables involved when going through injuries. The most important thing is to how to recover from it without sabotaging the progress made from good training principles.
September 13, 2018
Good News! I will like to introduce the launch of my new website: www.muscise.com. This website is the result of some long-term planning to provide visitors with content such as blogs and videos. The website is still in "beta-mode" as not all the features have been implemented. As of now, some blogs are active and ready to be read. In the near future, I will be launching videos to help all clients and visitors with training tips that will be unique to all. I am still making decisions such as blog and video posting frequency. I do plan to keep the website design clean and simple. I still plan to keep my original site to help further my website presence.
October 03, 2018
I have made several website updates. The first update you will notice is at the bottom of the homepage and every page after, there is a "scan me" QR code (You must download the QR code app in order to scan it). I have realized that smartphone usage is rapidly on the rise. In order to meet that demand, I made it so anyone visiting the site will be able to scan and share it with others. The contents will not be disclosed however I believe once you scan it; it will be of great benefit.
The second update is that for all people between the ages of 18 to 23 that live as per the locations indicated at the homepage or services and rates sections, there will be a 15% discount applied to all training packages (excludes new client starter packages). This is my gift to all of you.
The third update is that I have included a "Mission Statement". I believe for all of my potential clients and visitors to this site; it is important to see where I stand at. I am always looking for ways to improve the rapport between the client and myself as the personal trainer.
I will lastly like to give thanks to all the people that have received my business cards for the past several days. I am hopeful that this site serves you well and that I can potentially become your personal trainer to aid your health and fitness goals.
October 08, 2018
This is not my usual announcement however I feel this is of great importance for all people. We live in the age of the Internet therefore we have to become more mindful when it comes to our data. I will like to stress the importance of our data being safeguarded especially from Big Tech companies such as Facebook and Google. You may not be aware however Facebook went through another data security breach around the end of September 2018 (09/25/2018 estimated date stamp) and fail to notify its users on time. This security breach is much worse than anticipated. Facebook may not admit it to the public however the accounts affected are estimated between 50 million to 100 million. This isn't your typical security breach where hackers got your e-mail address and passwords. This security breach involves the Facebook Login ID where you login by clicking on the widget and it looks something like this:
What makes this hack extremely dangerous is that hackers retrieved access of everything you have posted on Facebook especially your profile. The image displayed is an example where you see the Facebook widget along with Google, Twitter, and Linkedin. When you login via the company's widget; you are exposing everything you have associated with the company. When hackers gain the ability to retrieve your information this way; it is like exposing everything that's inside your wallet (virtual wallet is a better coin term). The hackers are also profiting by selling this information on the dark web. The other problem with this hack is that any websites or apps that are interconnected with Facebook are also affected by the data breach. This means applications like Instagram or Whatsapp are affected.
There is breaking news today that Google+ (product of Alphabet Inc aka Google) of a similar breach where at least 500,000+ accounts have been affected. The problem is that this one goes back as far as 2015. Google knows about it and now they have decided to shut down Google+ for good. The reason for the lack of notification until now is due to the fear of backlash received from the consumers. This should alarm everyone and makes us think twice about using the company's widget button to login to a website. This puts everything about you in a completely vulnerable position. My advice will be to refrain from logging in using these venues. You are better off just logging in via your e-mail address. The exposure is much more minimal as it is not attached to your social media profile. Be careful and stay safe.
October 09, 2018
Hello! I want to let all visitors know of the slight facelift to this website. I have updated the majority of the fonts utilized to give the site a clean, refresh look. The reason I like this new font is due to the way it spaces each letter while the font size stays the same. I hope this font will be easier on the eyes.
October 19, 2018
I have some breaking news! I have gladly added the Westchester County towns of Greenburgh, Rye, & Rye Brook as part of an extended area coverage to provide personal training services. One of the deciding factors for this decision is based on travel accessibility. I have realized these towns interconnect with each other. The other factor is that I want to expand my outreach to areas where my services might be in dire need. In certain areas, there are people who preferred to have personal training services given at their place of residence. Some of the areas do not have a local gym near by making it difficult for some to make necessary changes in their lives. I will like to aid these people by providing these services. I hope this serves most of you well.
October 22, 2018
I want to address a few updates to this site. The first update is as mentioned in the previous post; I have added the towns of Greenburgh, Rye, & Rye Brook as part of my Westchester County area coverage portfolio. The second update is that I made significant changes to the Contact section of this site. The modified version includes in depth information about providing personal training services via gym versus personal training services via the client's home location. I have made a few suggestions to better aid all visitors. Please visit the Contact section for overall details. The third update is a slight change on the Services & Rates section. I have added two additional reasons to aid people as a professional. Please review the Services & Rates section for more information. I provide these periodic updates in order to better improve this website for all visitors.

I have made some updates to my additional website; Muscise. The first update are parts of the layout to give the website a cleaner and sleeker look. The boxes are now more square-like versus rectangle. I use the website's spacers to create that look. The second update is that the QR code received a small modification. You will need to download the QR code scanner app into your smartphone to see what's in it. The third and final update is that I have finally started uploading videos. The video section is currently in beta-mode and if you have any suggestions; please feel free to e-mail me. I do plan on uploading more videos in Muscise for the near future.

This is probably one of my most important announcements. I will like to introduce the ability of all clients and visitors to pay the training packages of their choice now available online. I have been working on this project for several weeks and to be honest; learning some of the technical details aren't easy. I understand the importance of providing people with payment options that suits their needs. In order to make this happen; I created a new page titled "Payments". In order to install widgets like payment buttons; the page needed to start from scratch. For this website, I wanted to give the Payments page a clean look detailing each package appropriately on different containers, separate text boxes, etc... To find out how to make the online payments; visit that page for overall details. I will like to point out that for Individual Sessions and New Client Starter Packages, only cash or check payments are accepted; no credit cards. I have also installed some banners into the site and if it piques your interest; feel free to check it out for overall details. As of now, I am using PayPal to have the online payments processed due to its ease of use. I hope the Payments' page will be easy for all visitors to use and if you have any questions, feel free to e-mail me.
November 27, 2018
I want to announce that the business is published and verified at Bing, Yelp, Manta, and the Yellow Pages. The countless hours for working on this project is well worth it. These companies are known to the public and have good reputations. The Yellow Pages are the OG when it comes to directories while the others have been on internet for at least over a decade. This further expands the online business presence in order to reach out to more people. I want to thank these companies for giving me the opportunity to be shown at their websites. The verified links are listed on the home page.
December 05, 2018
I have been working on several projects for the past several weeks and have received some positive results. The first announcement is that my proficiency as a Certified Personal Trainer expands due to a course I've completed that enables me to provide my clients with optimal training methods to better serve their goals. This amplifies the ability to identify problems that my clients suffer through when it comes to different forms of exercise. I have also taken additional courses that better serve my clients in these areas: Nutrition, Weight Loss, Athletic Performance & Body-Part Specific Imbalance.
The second announcement is that I am certified through the year 2021 and this basically means I am available to better serve all my clients and visitors for a long time.
The third announcement is that I have provided additional information in regards to The Flex Packs. You will need to review this information at Services & Rates.
The final announcement is that until January 31, 2019, any person that tries the New Client Starter Package and decides to hire me as their Certified Personal Trainer; a 10% discount (as a form of a rebate) will be applied to any training package. This does not include Individual Sessions, & The New Client Starter Packages.
December 12, 2018
I have modified the "Contact" page by separating the information for personal training services into three sections. The three sections explain in detail how these services are provided and what are the conditions for these processes. I hope the information addresses potential questions visitors have in mind.
I have also added two new badges;
Showmelocal member and Find Me At USREPS. The Showmelocal member badge indicates my profile for their website and confirms my local business operation. The USREPS badge is one of my most important badges due to its confirmation of me being a Certified Personal Trainer. USREPS is displayed throughout the website and to confirm my status; just click on the badge as it will redirect you to the website and type in my name plus location.
December 20, 2018
If you live in Manhattan & Queens NY; I have some great news. I have launched the grand opening of my new website: https://axvnyc.carrd.co. You will be able to view your services and rates, contact me, and make payments to your personal training package. I am humble to provide the same great services to these two locations. I have also launched an ad/flyer based website: https://axvnycnewclient.carrd.co that can be shared with anyone. The colors utilized for the two websites are cool while being easy on the eyes.
I have also modified the first ad/flyer based website: https://axvcptnewclient.carrd.co by simplifying the colors and most importantly; adding a digital QR code that can be scan with a smartphone. You will need to download the QR code scanner app to scan the digital QR code. I will not say what is in it however once scanned, you will appreciate me later ;). I believe it will be an efficient way to share information with anyone interested in personal training.
February 07, 2019
It is a brand new year and that usually means new goals to fulfill. I am proud to announce especially for Bronx County clients and visitors that you can receive personal training services from me at Dolphin Fitness Clubs. It is accessible by car and public transportation. The challenge for my potential clients have been travel accessibility especially if they do not know how to drive or own a car. For overall details such as gym location, etc... visit the Contact section. The biggest advantage is that the gym is open 24 hours from Monday thru Friday (closes at 11pm). The gym displays plenty of weight training machines, dumbbells that go over 100lbs, & provides a few specialty barbells.
I have made updates to the website that includes increasing the font size, making certain buttons larger, etc... You can now see me at LinkedIn as well. I will be posting weekly fitness tips to better serve all my clients and visitors. Feel free to provide comments and network with me.
February 26, 2019
There are two good announcements. The first is that on LinkedIn; I have started an exercise of the week series titled with the hashtag #TryoutTuesday. Every Tuesday, I will do my best to present unique exercises that are probably not performed at the majority of fitness centers. It is going to run throughout the 2019 year.
The second is that I have launched the brand new training package titled "Everyday Strong Ultimate". This is not your typical training pack. For more information; please visit the Services & Rates page.
March 21, 2019
I have made several font and wording improvements on this site to make it easier to understand for all visitors. There are times where terminology does get in the way to effectively communicate with all people. I want to be sure that as a Certified Personal Trainer, the message is presented effectively to all of you.
I will like to express that now all visitors have the option to train as a group of 3 or 4 people with me. These will fall under a "customized workout package" that will be based on the group's need as a whole. Please feel free to contact me for a consultation. The goal is to improve the lives in that group.
April 4, 2019
The website is going through improvements to better display features for all clients & visitors. If you are interested in Personal Training; feel free to contact me to make an appointment. The business is providing personal training services at Dolphin Fitness Clubs in addition to In-Home Personal Training.
April 18, 2019
The Old Flex Packs are no longer here. If you are under the old Flex Packs plan; you must complete your current cycle before applying for the new Flex Packs. The New Flex Packs are cost-friendly and provide at least double the amount of packs. The terms of the Flex Packs have not changed. Under the New Flex Packs; you have the option of selecting 10, 20, or 30 Flex Packs for 30 or 45 minutes or a special 25 Flex Packs for 60 minutes.
As the summer season approaches, it is important to take care of your health. One of the best ways to do this is by participating in ADL (Activities Of Daily Living). This simply means to become physically active in order to improve your fitness level. This improvement for your fitness level will usually lead into a healthier lifestyle of living. For older adults & seniors; this can be as simple as walking or going up or down a flight of stairs (use the handrail if your physical capabilities are limited). There is one principle however that takes precedence for ADL & that is strength training. Strength is the precursor all of us need to improve our physical capabilities. If you do not have the strength to perform the simplest of tasks (especially in settings where you perform alone); you will be going through all sorts of problems. The older we get; the faster our physical bodies break down. The increases in physical complications (osteoporosis, muscular atrophy, arthritis, etc...) all have one thing common; the persistent loss of strength. The more inactive you become; the weaker your body gets as a whole. To limit this, you must build up your strength.
If you do not know where to start; seek the aid of a professional trainer & let them help you improve your Activities Of Daily Living. As an Independent Certified Personal Trainer; the Everyday Strong training philosophy mostly revolves in improving your ADL. This is done through a combination of different strength training principles and cohesively creating a program that will suit your personal goals. Are You Ready To Power Up!
June 11, 2019
I would like to personally thank Health Fairs Direct for giving this business an opportunity to be presented to the people. It was a great experience and was glad to be a part of this.
In that event, I presented an exclusive item that is now being displayed at the home page: The Everyday Strong Loyalty Card. In order to receive this card, contact the business for overall details. The best part of this rewards program is that the first workout is on me! You will receive a head start towards your fitness journey.

You receive the same number of packs like its predecessor however you have the option to train for less time. I have communicated with certain visitors and potential clients that wanted to train however the commitment time prevented them from moving forward. I will like to thank these visitors that provided me with the feedback necessary to make this a priority for all potential clients and visitors. All visitors that are interested in Private 1-ON-1 Personal Training have the opportunity to select the Packs and Time of their choice. You can view the new changes at the Services & Rates Page. The Payments Page has been updated to reflect these changes as well.
For the Everyday Strong Loyalty Card, it is still in the process of what type of rewards you will be receiving. Once the details are completed; the announcement will be made.

The website went through some great updates. The business is proud introduce a new personal training style offering that will change how workouts can be provided possibly forever; Everyday Strong Mixers. Everyday Strong Mixers provide clients/visitors the opportunity to take charge by selecting their own individual workout type for that particular day (selection is subjected to time availability). For example, if you want to be personally trained however your time is severely limited then you can choose the Electric workout. If you have extra time on your hands and want to extend your workouts to an hour then you can choose the Economy workout.

For more information about Zelle; feel free to visit Zelle.com.
March 07, 2020
The new year is all about starting anew and fresh. I will like to start by thanking all of my clients (current & former) for entrusting me to be their Personal Trainer. Without any of you; the business does not move forward. I will like to give thanks to all of you for letting me handle the most difficult tasks when it comes to becoming healthier versions of yourselves. When all of you do this; the rapport between client and Personal Trainer becomes much greater. To build such rapport is a difficult however rare opportunity.
The overall successes we achieved last year have been nothing short of amazing. All of you have shined in very unique ways. From achieving personal bests from exercises such as the squat, bench, & deadlift, gaining 10lbs to 15lbs of quality muscle mass, & some losing at least 20lbs to 25lbs in 8 weeks are awesome.
A new feature displayed "Client Success Videos" is currently in construction. It will be up and running in a moment's notice. This page will display how all of my clients have achieved their fitness goals in various ways.
March 19, 2020
This is one of the most announcements ever provided on this site and that is the total shutdown of all gyms throughout New York State due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns. The New York State Governor issued a decree on Monday, March 16, 2020 that required what they deemed as "non-essential services" such as gyms to be closed at 8pm and not to be open until further notice. The Governor also stated that no more than 50 people can meet up into one location. As of Thursday, March 19, 2020; the Governor provided a new mandate that requires no more than 50% of the workforce can report to their job site.
The decrees issued provide are a huge disappointment as many clients will feel demotivated by the lack of exercise in order to improve their overall fitness level. The stronger your fitness level, the better your immune system can combat many foreign agents that float around the air on a daily basis. The business is currently looking at viable alternatives such as In-Home Personal Training and/or Semi-Private Personal Training as ways to provide great service to achieve the client's fitness goals.
The business will continue to provide great personal training services despite the restrictions. The business kindly asks for the patience for all clients and visitors throughout this unfortunate situation. The business will be running very soon! Thank you!
March 20, 2020
This is the most important announcement as it serves as breaking news: All Personal Training Services will be suspended indefinitely until further notice. The New York State Governor as of Friday, March 20, 2020 will sign an Executive Order that mandates the whole workforce to stay home at 100% capacity effective Sunday, March 22, 2020. The Executive Order applies to what they considered as "Non-Essential" businesses. The restrictions that will be put in effect hinders the elderly even further. Please follow your local news for further updates about the Executive Order.
The Executive Order forces the business to be locked down until further notice. This reality will hit the business very hard especially for my clients and visitors. The business kindly ask for your patience through this hard process. As soon as everything passes, the business will be up and running once again.
March 30, 2020
The latest news is that the Federal guidelines provided by the Trump Administration have been extended until Thursday, April 30, 2020. In anticipation to this, the New York State Governor extended the shutdown for most businesses until Wednesday, April 15, 2020. This means that Dolphin Fitness Clubs will be closed at least until that day therefore no physical personal training sessions will be scheduled at this time. The business will be open to take on fitness consultations or inquiries via phone call, e-mail, or text if anyone is interested in personal training services for future workouts. If you are visiting this site for the first time and will like to receive weekly updates in regards to COVID-19 and business services; feel free to fill out the contact form located on the "Contact" page.
The business is currently looking into providing Virtual Sessions to anyone that are interested. Any client or visitors that are interested in providing feedback for this; feel free to fill out the contact form with the subject line "Online Personal Training Feedback". Feel free to provide your thoughts and suggestions in order for the business to contemplate a swift decision within the upcoming days. At this current time; there are many people that are unable to train properly for themselves due to this and with social distancing guidelines plus the New York State Governor's Executive Order put in place makes even exercising outdoors a challenge. As previously stated in an earlier announcement, performing fitness-related activities improves your body's immune system to fight infections. It is also important to follow a good nutritional guide that consists of fruits, vegetables, and meats that are minimally processed at best. When you take care of your body internally, the body's immune system dramatically improves. This is much more important now especially to anyone that is suffering with at least more than one preexisting condition. Most of the business may be down for a moment however it will be roaring back very soon.
April 24, 2020
It has been approximately 40 days since New York State started their lockdown. The bad news has been the extension of the New York State lockdown until May 15, 2020 which places the burden on many businesses on the brink of total elimination. The longer the lockdown persists, the worse everything gets. The glimmer of hope would be the April 30, 2020 announcement to be presented by the Trump administration. If any breaking news occurred, it would be displayed on the Home & Announcements page.
There has been some interesting developments from the Coronavirus in relation to overall health. For example, based on the preliminary data; the majority of people suffering from Coronavirus has at least one preexisting condition. The breakdowns are as follow:
53% of patients suffered from Hypertension
42% of patients suffered from Obesity
32% of patients suffered from Diabetes
The data presented underlines a very common issue that plagues many individuals: A compromised Immune System. When the body is healthy, the immune system does a great job combating germs and viruses however when compromised, the body becomes ill. One of the most important things I explain to my clients is the importance of maintaining a healthy body. A healthy body is a good body. To achieve a good body, the person must be physically active, have the proper nutrition based on their body's need, and sustain a lifestyle that does not elevate their body's stress level. The better you treat your body; the stronger the Immune System is.
The business obtained an update from Dolphin Fitness Clubs. It is currently displayed on this website's homepage. The good news is that the business is currently not underwater as of yet. The website will provide an update once it reopens.
The business will try its overall best to temporarily transitioned to an Online Personal Training Model. There would be an update once the final details are completed. One major component of providing Online Personal Training would be the safeguard and privacy of information for the individual. The business would not be utilizing the popular videoconferencing software; Zoom. Zoom has been hacked and more than 530,000 accounts compromised. Hackers have been able to steal password, e-mail addresses, and login information. The information has been to the Dark Web for money. One thing this business values is the privacy of someone's information and would advise out of good conscious to kindly delete the Zoom account (if you have one). Once the business finds the right software; an update will be provided.
April 25, 2020
