Luke Guanzon, founder and Head Strength and Conditioning coach, received a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science from the State University of New York at Cortland.
Luke continues to utilize his 15 years of experience in the fitness industry to manage various high-end gyms, work with top professionals in his field, and coaching athletes of all spectrums. He brings a vast array of experience and knowledge to his clientele. Through scientific methodologies, standardized testing and assessments, Luke delivers highly-detailed programs.
Keeping an open mind; thinking outside the box while still using quantifiable data he delivers efficient periodized training programs that are highly specific to each. With the focus on health and performance, we break the body down, so it works as efficiently and functionally as possible with a high emphasis on injury prevention and corrective exercise. This method delivers effective and scientifically proven results to achieve the ultimate goal of the client.
Having experienced, contributed to, and consulted on the start of several studio gyms as well as significant health clubs he saw that the industry was getting too broad and flashy and negating the one thing that is most important, the human body and how it works. Being an athlete himself all throughout college, he played competitive varsity soccer, and he knows what the body can and cannot do.
Once you know how the body works you can then look at it as a machine that has highly specific moving parts. By breaking the body down and keeping things simple, Luke has seen excellent results in his diverse clients from the CEOs in the world, elite athletes, post-rehab, and individuals with special needs. This has led him to train some of the highest caliber athletes from all over the country, as well as being an educator, and lecturer. Now he is bringing his vision, experience, passion, and results into his own training company.
