ABOUT

Hi, I am Tony. I am a NYC based Exercise and Wellness Coach. My mission is to share my love, passion, and knowledge on health and fitness with as many people as possible.

Personal Story

Five years ago, I was working in Corporate Finance for a major investment bank in New York City. I was making a six-figure salary in my mid 20s. Most of the time, I was busy crunching some numbers away at my cubicle. The upside was to take annual trips to travel the world: Spain, Portugal, Argentina, Italy, France, Hong Kong, Costa Rica, and the list goes on…

I should have been satisfied with my life. I was “successful” according to societal standards. However, the longer I worked at my job, the more unsatisfied I was. I didn’t feel like I was contributing to the world nor advancing myself. “What am I doing with my life?” I would ask myself all the time.

During that soul searching period, I found Crossfit and Olympic Weightlifting. I enjoyed the satisfaction from a tough workout. I started to immerse myself in the fitness world. I competed in CrossFit competitions, a weightlifting competition, raced in obstacle courses, attended fitness seminars, and eventually got certified as a Personal Trainer.

One thing led to another, I stumbled upon a medical doctor turned Acupuncturist Emily. She encouraged me to change my career and to do what I love – helping people, continued education, health and fitness. I decided to enroll in a four year graduate program to study Chinese Medicine.

I spent two years juggling between a full time job, training myself and other people, and attending graduate school part time. In March 2015, I took the leap of faith and worked as a trainer full time. The decision was not easy but it was worth it. I am living my life to the fullest everyday!

Over the past few years, my philosophy on physical training has evolved around wellness. I am blending my knowledge from exercise science and Traditional Oriental Medicine together, which gives me a unique skill to provide the best care for my clients based on their needs. If you would like to learn more about my training, please send me an email!
