John Responte, my passion for Fitness started as a youth athlete at the age of 6. My oldest brother was a personal trainer when I was a teenager and he introduced me to weightlifting and the gym industry. I knew this was the career I wanted. I joined the Marines when I was 17 and continued my passion for fitness as I trained Marines for endurance on the battlefield. For the last 30 years, I’ve been in the fitness industry as a trainer, Fitness director, and gym owner. My clients have included professional athletes, soccer moms and everybody in between. My goal is to help every person I meet in the gym become a better version of themselves through Fitness and Nutrition. I’m certified through the National Academy of Sports Medicine. Nutritionally certified through DOTFIT & Apex.
