The FIT Lab opened in March 2013. From day one, we have dedicated ourselves to delivering tailored fitness strategies that incorporate consistent training and nutrition into a lifestyle-centered approach. We stand apart by prioritizing sustainable results in a market overly focused on intensity and quick fixes.
Our membership is comprised of a community of like-minded people who strive to improve their health and happiness one percent every day, both in and outside of the gym. The FIT Lab team is invested in helping each member achieve their goals while improving their overall quality of life.
Leave no doubt how much we care, from the first interaction to the last. We are dedicated to helping our members achieve real, sustainable results through tailored fitness programs and ongoing support.
The FIT Lab offers personal One-on-one and Small-group Training with an experienced team of coaches, in an environment built on a foundation of respect, knowledge, safety, and professionalism. Our comprehensive approach integrates science-based strength-training workouts, nutrition coaching, and remote support via our members-only communication hub.
We pride ourselves on honesty and transparency. In that spirit, we expect our members to hold themselves accountable. Achieving fitness and health goals requires more than just showing up. Prioritizing nutrition, stress management, sleep, and daily motion every day plays a critical role in success. We take our members’ fitness and health seriously and expect them to do the same. That’s why we provide the resources, motivation, and support when it comes to these priorities – in addition to smart, kick-ass workouts in a fun and positive environment.
Giving back to the community is a core value of The FIT Lab. Each month, we make a donation to a charity chosen by the winners of our Fitness Challenge. Additionally, in Spring 2019 we rallied our whole community and partnered with Hoboken Prime Cycle to raise more than $5,000 for the HEART 9/11 organization.
The FIT Lab’s team of certified personal coaches works collaboratively to best serve the members of our community through tailored fitness programs that provide sustainable results. Each coach brings a unique background, skillset, and perspective.
What members have to say about Greg:
“Greg’s expertise goes above and beyond the physical exercises you do during a gym session.”
“[Greg] maintains an immaculate facility and is a consummate professional.”
Greg Morrone is founder, owner, and head coach of The FIT Lab.
Greg is passionate about helping members of our community live longer, more fulfilling lives through consistent training and the adoption of habits that support a healthy lifestyle. Greg’s focus and attention while guiding all The FIT Lab members throughout their journeys prove on a daily basis how much he cares. His personal investment in education and maintaining best practices, as well as his commitment to professionalism, is unmatched in the Hoboken fitness community – and in the industry.
Greg became a certified trainer in 2001, an American Council on Exercise Certified Personal Trainer (ACE CPT) in 2008, and has acquired numerous accreditations in fitness and holistic health. With more than eighteen years of personal training experience, Greg’s client roster – ranging from celebrities, to seasoned athletes, to beginners – has been diverse. He is inspired by any individual dedicated to improving their health. He understands that everyone has a unique metabolism and body type, and strongly opposes a one-size-fits-all approach to exercise and fitness.
After working as a coach in high-end private training studios and as an in-house trainer for major financial institutions in Manhattan for more than a decade, Greg (a Jersey boy at heart) wanted to bring his expertise to Hoboken, where he could improve the lives of a broader range of people.
What members have to say about Jason:
“[Jason is] an amazing and fun trainer. In group sessions, he’s incredibly engaging and explains each circuit in great detail. He’s attentive to form and lets you know exactly what muscles you should be feeling with each movement. I’m never struggling to understand what I should be doing at my workout sessions.”
After a successful career in finance, Jason made the leap into the fitness industry when The FIT Lab launched in 2013.
Jason, who is National Association of Sports Medicine (NASM) and Functional Movement Screen (FMS) certified, is keenly aware of the benefits that physical wellness brings to busy, stressed professionals. His desire to help people was ignited after shoulder surgery years ago. During his lengthy recovery, he gained considerable insights as well as the ability to relate to clients after his experience regaining strength, shedding excess weight, and resolving many common aches and pains.
Jason is a very attentive coach who is inspired by improving members’ form and function from the ground up. He reinvests in himself through ongoing education to continuously provide our members with the most current, advanced, and effective training methods.
Jason’s knowledge and passion inspire and motivate our members during and beyond their sessions at The FIT Lab.
What members have to say about Steve:
“Training with Steve Donald has been fantastic. He works with you to achieve your individual goals, pushes you when he needs to, and is very personable and flexible with my ever-changing work schedule.”
Steve graduated from University of Delaware in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Training and Strength and Conditioning. Throughout college and post-grad, he has rounded out his extensive expertise in many areas, from anatomy to advanced exercise physiology.
Steve not only brings an impressive formal education to the gym; he also has several years of experience working at one of New York City’s most prestigious physical therapy institutions. His background as an Athletic Trainer (AT) positions him well to work with anyone recovering from or working through an injury. His skill set has also helped alleviate the fears and misconceptions many people have about strength training.
Steve’s approach is to develop safe, effective programs with an emphasis on practicality. He strives to learn constantly, and to work smarter by drawing inspiration from as many sources as possible.
What members have to say about Ian:
“[Ian] is skilled, thoughtful, sensible, and a pleasure to work with and talk to. He knows just how and when to encourage and when to push, though never too much.”
Ian developed his passion for fitness and health while playing college and semi-professional soccer in the Northeast of England. His sports career led him to London, where he began to earn coaching licenses while volunteering with youth and adult soccer teams. Ian qualified to Union of European Football Associations B level, then took an opportunity in 2012 to move to the United States, where he further developed his passion for both sport-specific* and personal fitness.
In the U.S., Ian coached soccer teams in strength and conditioning and speed, agility, and quickness (SAQ) before becoming certified as a personal trainer through the NASM in 2015. Since then, he has transitioned to full-time personal training and earned additional specialty certifications for Total Resistance exercise (TRX) and Sports Conditioning – all while maintaining his career as a youth soccer coach. Ian has been with The FIT Lab since 2018 and leads the majority of our morning Small-group Training sessions.
In 2019, Ian competed in the Lake Placid Ironman and qualified for the New York City Marathon. He has been deeply invested in learning as much as possible about safe, effective protocols for endurance competitions, and he has parlayed his newfound passion into coaching others for similar events.

Kathleen views the gym as a positive environment for building strength and confidence for everyone – no matter their background or starting level. She’s a proponent for workouts that are both fun and challenging. Her goal is to help members of The FIT Lab unlock their potential, move better, get stronger, and walk out of each workout feeling energized.
Staying active has been important to Kathleen since her high school days of running hurdles on the track team. Though she can boast impressive accomplishments including a sprint triathlon and climbing Pike’s Peak, she is proudest of the many small, daily actions that contribute to maintaining a healthy, sustainable lifestyle in a fast-paced world. As a professional in renewable energy by day, Kathleen is always looking for practical ways to incorporate movement between gym workouts and and to maintain clean eating while at her desk.
Kathleen became a certified personal trainer by the National Academy of Sports Medicine in 2018. Additionally, she earned her GGS-1 certification from Girls Gone Strong, an organization focused entirely on coaching women. Having been a member of The FIT Lab for more than two years, Kathleen is excited to follow her own passion for fitness while helping other members achieve their goals.
