HARDIK PANDYA Home Town: Edison, NJ Years Experience: 10
Specialty Certifications and Achievements: C.S.C.S., CPR/AED/First Aid certified
Being in this profession for 10 years I understand that people have different goals and needs. I can design a high-level fitness program and also provide nutritional conditioning where the emphasis will be on body conditioning, food intake and/or weight management. As a rehab coach I can help restructure the biomechanics of the body and design a program where the primary focus will be on efficiency and ease of movement as well as injury prevention and rehabilitation. As a strength coach I can help an individual to construct a sport specific program, where the athlete will encounter neuromuscular re-education, strength/conditioning, speed and agility.
RICKY DWORZANSKI Home Town: Bayonne, NJ Years Experience: 2
Specialty Certifications and Achievements: CPR/AED certified, W.I.T.S. – World Instructor Training Schools certified
I like to keep my clients guessing on what we will do next. This helps keep the mind active from constantly repeating the same routine. I have realized the correlation between a good sense of balance and a stronger core and so I like to incorporate exercises that will constantly test my clients. I believe that one’s mind can give out before one’s body does, meaning most people stop performing an exercise at a predetermined amount of reps. I use a “toothpaste” analogy in exercise where every little bit left counts and motivate my clients to get more reps in where they normally would not. The road to achieving goals begins with the will to succeed!
SEAN STIVERS Home Town: Laurence Harbor, NJ Years Experience: 5
Specialty Certifications and Achievements: Certified Teacher of Physical Education and Health, Y.M.C.A Personal Trainer, CPR/AED/ First Aid certified
It is my belief that every person should have the knowledge and skills to lead a healthy life. Considering individual needs, I teach and guide clients through fundamental and advanced techniques for the development of cardio respiratory endurance, muscular strength/endurance, and flexibility. I can also guide clients in the selection, preparation, and consumption of nutritious foods that will lead to the maintenance of good health. As a personal trainer, I am committed to helping each client learn how to eat right, exercise regularly, and ultimately improve quality of life.

I love to motivate, challenge and encourage my clients beyond what they previously ever thought possible.
