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. Greg’s primary mission in the fitness industry is to: 1.) Help as many people as possible improve their quality of life through sustainable exercise. 2.) Provide career opportunities and mentor as many serious fitness professionals as he can. Greg recently co-founded Unicorn Wellness LLC with Mark Fisher ( Mark Fisher Fitness). Unicorn Wellness invests and develops fitness and health franchises, which provides Greg with a bigger platform to advance his mission.
