Joey Cifelli, B.S. CPT

Founder & Coach, NASM-Certified Personal Trainer,

NASM Corrective Exercise Specialist

I am a certified personal trainer with more than 10 years of experience. My athlete training, academic background, and work in therapy and sports medicine give me a unique edge as a personal trainer.

Before I became a personal trainer, I was a football player. However, an injury halted my athletic career, and I then poured my passion for athletics into my studies, eventually earning a B.S. in Exercise Science and Sports Studies (Applied Kinesiology) from Rutgers University.

I then went on to work in physical therapy and sports medicine at the prestigious Princeton Orthopaedic Associates, where I focused on resistance, range of motion, and cardiovascular work. At Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, I worked with patients undergoing physical rehabilitation and earned accolades for patient care and safety.

In the 4 years I spent at Crunch Fitness Union Square, the fitness chain’s flagship location in New York, my experience and education set me apart and allowed me to connect with a variety of clients at different fitness levels and ages. I quickly rose through the ranks and became Master Personal Trainer.

I Work With People Who Want:


There are thousands of articles circulating about fitness, and it confuses many with where they need to begin. They don’t know who to trust, become intimidated by weights, and think they will get injured or bulk up if they start lifting. I take the guesswork out of the equation for them and use only top-of-the-line training programs proven to deliver results and backed by research.

My specialty is helping my clients know exactly what to do with my training methods. I can teach anyone how to squat, bench press, or deadlift in under 5 minutes. Moreover, I fine-tune programs to help my clients reach their goals and provide them with biweekly updates on progress, taking their feedback into account.

I recommend a 10- to 20-week training for most people. This is so they have the time to learn the nuances, helping them feel confident when they try to do it on their own. When they have finished this program, they can continue working with me or have me coach them online through a mobile app where I can monitor their form and afar. This also eliminates expenses for lifetime one-on-one training.


Many of my clients have never had strength training before. As a result, they experience the effect of body strength daily, making everyday tasks harder and more risky than they need to be. Some have worked out for more than 27 years, seeing no changes in strength.

With my programs, I guarantee that both kinds of individuals can make leaps and bounds in developing their strength every session. In addition, it motivates them greatly to see results every session and assures them they are on the right track.

That said, building strength as an older adult can drastically improve their quality of life. I have worked with people who needed to work on their balance, stability, improve bone density, strength, and flexibility to prevent falls. Strength training greatly improves these attributes.

Weight Loss

It’s easy to lose weight when you follow simple nutritional guidelines besides exercising 2–3 times a week. Many aren’t ready to tackle their eating habits when they start. However, exercising twice or thrice a week alone can yield body-transforming results. People who can work through these training and nutrition programs can get the quickest results.


Many people come in with prior injuries and pains. I teach them that pain has biopsychosocial elements and that it’s not always a problem with their joints. Because they worry so much about it sometimes, it causes more pain.

I help them adopt great technique on the lifts, start them the right way, and help them eliminate pain and develop confidence in everyday movements and training exercises. Ninety percent of clients report the pain going away over the course of our training together. 

Mission and Vision Statement 

My mission is to make good health, fitness, and confidence achievable to older adults. I understand that people have different needs, and I never use a one-size-fits-all approach to personal training. My work in various training settings informs my approach, which focuses on form, strength, and safety.

My vision is to help as many people as I can to unlock their physical potential, improve quality of life, and eliminate unhealthy habits to reduce the risk of disease.
