“I have been a member of New Dorp Fitness for over ten years. I can proudly say that the owner, Phil Pennacchia, is very professional and extremely educated in his mastered field: Fitness. No matter what your personal goals are for your body, Phil will create the perfect workout and train you not only physically, but mentally as well by getting you in the right mind set to help push yourself to achieve your goals. Whether you want to slim down and tone up for summer or increase strength and bulk up for winter, Phil will put you on the right course to make it happen.

Over the years I have seen him train clients of all ages, from kids in their young teens to the elderly. Phil takes pride in his work and he has a passion for helping people make their lives better. I started training under Phil’s wing at 13 years old when I was a heavy young teen. He worked with me to help me lose the weight, but he also helped guide me in the right directions in life which has molded me into the man I am today.

I attended college in Rhode Island where I was a member of several different gyms. I saw how the personal trainers were and how they treated their clients. I can honestly say that Phil cares more about his clients and helping them achieve their goals, than any other personal trainer I have ever seen. The man eats, sleeps and breathes fitness and passing on his knowledge to others. He has never went to work a day in his life because he loves what he does. That is the person I want training me!”
