    Lauren Ashby

    I am a New York City-based Certified Personal Trainer, NPC Nationally-Qualified Figure Competitor, and Figure and Bikini Competition Prep Coach. I started my career at an exclusive boutique gym in Arlington, VA before moving to New York City in 2008.

    Since moving to New York, I worked at a large commercial gym but now work as an independent trainer with a broad client base including a Broadway performer, reality TV contestant, college athletes, fitness competitors, post-rehab clients and everybody in between!

    I became interested in fitness and weight training after “retiring” from competitive swimming which I did for 11 years.  I became a regular at my gym and decided to make it my career after 10 years in the marketing industry.  I then decided to take my passion to another level when I became an NPC Figure Competitor in 2009. I continue to compete in Figure Competitions and have since taken my passion to a new level by coaching figure and bikini athletes, an elite group of women dedicated to the sport of bodybuilding.   I am constantly researching and looking for new ways to surprise my clients and love to educate, motivate and inspire everyone I work with!

  • Hing Ma

    Hing Ma I was a natural born skinny – long neck, flat body and chicken legs. I weighted about 125lbs when i was in High School and stand 5 feet 6 1/2 inches tall. Through personal experience I’ve gained 35lbs-40lbs of muscles and able to look good with clothes on and off. I’ve put in my time to find what works and what doesn’t through trial and error. Each persons body is unique, so program design would have to be different as well. There is no one size fits all training program. I’ve came from a background of strength training and has grown to incorporate different workout philosophies and methods for different people, fitness levels and fitness goals. I was a pro-trainer at NYSC and Tier 3 Trainer at Equinox. With numerous hours of great education and through 4 years of experience, I’m knowledgeable in helping my clients to reach their fitness goals by performing the exercise safe, fun and effective. I’ve designed programs for muscle mass building, tone and definitions (shaping up), weight loss, boot camp, high intensity interval training, body weight training and kettlebell training. At the end its all about you hitting your fitness goals in a specific, measurable reasonable amount of time. The program I’ll design for you is progressive so your body is being challenged and pushed to see effective results. If you’re ready to be committed to have a body of your dreams, lets get started

  • Mark Cronogue

    cronogueI’ve been coaching now for over 20 years and have worked with a wide spectrum of people, from pro athletes to hardcore foodies. I was and still am a competitive athlete having performed at an extremely high level in baseball, basketball, and beach volleyball. I currently compete in triathlons.

    I received my BA in Psychology from UC Santa Barbara and attended a Masters Program at Emperors College of Oriental/Chinese Medicine in Santa Monica, Ca. I learned to balance body with mind and came away as a lifelong practitioner of Chi Gong.

    My major focus at this time is with our overweight population, with Special Certificates in both Weight Management and Fitness/Sports Nutrition. I ardently believe in a cooperative approach while training. Focusing on a fitness program in harmony with nutrition is the best way to successfully lose/maintain/or gain weight. Diets, weights, or aerobics when done independently seldom result in a long-term solution.

    Balance and attention to detail.

    I design programs that are both fun and productive with a close eye on both form and safety. Small changes over time result in big rewards.
