Project Description


• Services in NYC that stand out •

The training sessions of EXERCISE IS LIFE could easily claim they are among the best, if not the best, in NYC, and their unique qualities & features below can justify this claim. Take a look, and if you find in New York City better prices for Personal training that combines all of EXERCISE IS LIFE’s features, then you will be offered even a lower price…

The prices are insanely low, $40-$55! Why does this happen? I have been in this field professionally for more than 25 years, and I could reasonably keep my prices very high due to my big experience, education, rich resume, prestigious location of New York City, etc. Over the years, especially when I moved to New York, I switched many times from low to higher prices for many reasons. One of those was that, sadly, when you charge little people tend to take you less seriously or think you are not good… Luckily, life has taught me to trust myself and believe in it no matter what others say or do… and good I did so because I feel good within, and my clients feel good, too. They have embraced my different way to promote health through this demanding and responsible job. Every time I kept my sessions at high prices, despite the fact I was living and working in NY, my inner voice was saying it was wrong. It was wrong… It is wrong.

Personal training is overpriced and unreasonably overvalued. Maybe because a trainer, or at least the majority of the trainers, cannot live a normal life if they charge very little. The number of the hours they could do per month are certain, and the monthly expenses are certain, too. For most trainers, this job is a part-time job, or if it is a full-time job, they definitely make profit from other services and products in this field. There is no other way to live a normal life, even if you keep your prices insanely high.

The result of the overpriced training sessions? Countless people who cannot afford personal training and learn from it make everyday serious exercise mistakes and get injured, get exhausted in gyms without attain the results they wish, or dislike exercise because they never had someone to help them approach it in the right way.

The bottom line: After so many years in the field, I appreciate health the most, and one of my main goals is to give all the opportunity to have access to reliable knowledge that promotes truly good health. Realizing that Personal Training has sadly become a luxury service that only the wealthier can afford, I decided to “shake” the field and move it forward. As long as I can, my training sessions will “rock”! Their prices will be the lowest a New Yorker can ever imagine!

I am a certified Personal Trainer with a Bachelor’s Degree in Physical Education, currently studying for a Master’s Degree in the Exercise and Health field. However, If I had to chose one only thing for my successful career, that wouldn’t be my personal training certification, nor my Bachelor’s or other studies, but simply my experience.

Experience is what mostly I carry with me in my gym bag (over 25 years of experience), and when I combine it with tons of common sense and a little suspicion at times about science’s findings, it works miracles. Unfortunately, I have seen countless professionals with great knowledge making very serious and numerous mistakes because they use their plain knowledge without further consideration, either because they are bored or because they have learned to work that way. I made my mistakes, too, I am not an exception, but I can’t forgive myself for the same mistakes again. That’s why experience is a real treasure, and when and wherever you find it, exploit it!

Despite the very low prices of the training sessions, which actually serve as all-year-long offers, during each year I may give even more insane offers through session packages! Stay tuned… Check the News page regularly or simply sign up for the Newsletters to let you know first. Some offers are grabbed before they are added to the website.

I always try (most of the time successfully) to facilitate clients when they want to switch to a different day and time, and that happens often. Although it is not easy, with lots of positive thoughts and a little effort the changes are made. It’s a kind of magic… How everyone finds their ideal time for their workout? I am still wondering… and they stick to their workouts. This is what matters…!

…and if we both have more time available, we can work out more. Some additional time always helps you achieve more. No charge of course, needless to say. It is said that time is money, but in my case it is not…!

I have never been able to ask money for canceled sessions. Simply because I don’t want to… Apart from 1-2 times all my years in this field that I did so (and I didn’t feel well, believe me), I never charged for sessions when they were canceled. Say it foolish way of thinking or unprofessional, or whatever else… this is who I am and I cannot change it, I don’t want to change it. Yes, a canceled session is loss of money. No worries though… Whether you cancel a session in advance or at the last minute, you won’t be charged. This is, EXERCISE IS LIFE!

Some exclusive articles can make a difference. “My Blog,” a section with articles I write makes you see Exercise and Health from a different angle. The more you train with me, the more articles you are allowed to access. Take advantage!

As you may have already realized, I have that bug inside of me that keeps me restless at all times, in a good sense. I love knowledge, and besides my college studies I appreciate continuing education, I always doubt over science, read from more reliable sources, and try to come to conclusions that promote real health. Unfortunately, this field is not without its dark rooms… It needs a lot of thought and consideration. Its use comes with many unwanted side effects, too. However, when you work out with me, you are sure that a trainer tells you the truth, whatever that is, even if that is not to my advantage.

Projects in which I am involved push me to study more and learn from the best sources we have today. Those Projects will become public soon and will change the way we see health & life!

No supplements for muscle growth and fut burning, no protein shakes that all consume as their magic powder, and no any other kind of substances and supplements to boost your health and organism. If you respect your body and health, if you appreciate the potential of your genes, and… if you wish to keep enjoying life some years from now, then let me show you what real exercise means. You will love it, and you will make the difference in a brainwashed world where exercise without a protein shake (and more…) is believed to make no sense.

I make the difference by allowing as many exercisers as possible to equally share the sessions. This is, 2 exercisers pay only $25 per session, or 5 exercisers as little as $10 per session!!! Hooray! Life is beautiful…!

Do a minimum of 8 sessions a month and receive a free session, always… all year long. Isn’t it great? Complete 100 sessions and receive a great gift, related to exercise of course. Refer a friend to EXERCISE IS LIFE, and if they buy their first 12 sessions (Awesome 12), you will receive 5 free sessions as a gift! I shouldn’t forget your birthday, too. There is always something about it! Hey, and don’t forget, I am Greek! There is no need for you to sweat to receive a Greek treat…! Oh, those Greeks have so many delicious…
