I lost 15 pounds and became toned!
My initial goal of just losing “the last 10 pounds” was accomplished quickly and was surpassed as I lost almost 15 pounds and gained much more muscle tone/definition. I can say that I genuinely enjoy coming to workout with John every week. He pushes me harder than I would ever push myself. Even when I feel like I can’t keep going, he knows how to encourage me to continue. John stands out with the amount of knowledge about personal training.
He is also very down to earth and I like that he sincerely cares about his clients and what is going on with their lives. During the sessions, it’s nice to be able to talk to him to keep my mind off of whatever it is that I’m doing in that exact moment or even in my life.
Paul Lost 40 Pounds!
I was 40 pounds overweight, had recently broken my leg and didn’t know how to get started. In my first session I told John that “just keep me coming” was his only goal. Now I know how to maintain an active lifestyle for the first time in my life - I love to work out. I'm doing activities I couldn't do ten years ago!
The best of all for me is that he’s a great motivator and he does it all with great feeling for each of his clients. Not all of us want to do a boot camp and he doesn’t need to employ fad-inspired “drill sergeant” techniques to get you and keep you motivated and working hard. It is hard at times, but I always feel tremendously better after training. It’s a new emotional attachment that is anchored in me because John taught me how.
He is also incredibly knowledgeable. I’ve asked him just about every question you could imagine about food and exercise. He’s patient and very helpful. I consider John an incredible trainer and recommend him all the time and without reservation.
I initially had reservations about starting, but after nearly 2 years, down 40 pounds with proper training and eating, I feel tremendously better.
Caitlin Was Wedding Day Ready!
I started training with John 8 months before my wedding and my initial goals were to lose weight and become toned. I achieved both of these goals under your direction and was so happy with my results and genuinely enjoyed going to the sessions that I couldn’t fathom cutting back on the training sessions after the wedding.
In fact, I was still attending 2 personal training sessions per week up until this October when I stopped training 2 weeks before having a baby.
When I first started training with John, I had never really lifted weights and felt that doing so would make me bulky and was scared I would hurt myself because I didn’t know how to lift properly. Now I look forward to certain lifting exercises like deadlifting, which I never thought I would do, let alone enjoy. In fact, learning how to do exercises that I have never done before is one of my favorite parts!
My only fear with recommending you to family and friends (which I would do!) is that you would become too popular and I wouldn’t be able to schedule training sessions anymore.
Training has become an important and regular part of my life. I now care more about working out and am more conscious of what I eat. After having the baby, I stopped training for 2 and a half months and I felt like a part of me was incomplete because it has become such an integral part of who I am.
John really educated me on the benefits of lifting weights and how they would help me reach my personal fitness goals. I was surprised by how much of a “fitness nerd” you are. In my past experiences, trainers I had worked with did not know as much as I would expect them to given that personal training was their livelihood. You are on a whole different level. You know the technical science behind the fitness and nutrition and you are educated about the psychology and wellness aspects of a healthy lifestyle. It isn’t one-sided training with you, it is all encompassing.
Since working out with John, I have noticed a major change in my quality of life.
Besides having an increase in energy, the muscular gains, as well as the overall core strength that I have made while training with John have far surpassed anything that I thought I could do. I recently deadlifted 300lbs!
While my workouts are, of course demanding, I do look forward to them. Surprisingly, even more than that, I look forward to where I will be in the next six months!
My favorite part of training with John is the individualized workouts that are geared to my specific needs. Through John’s leadership and motivation, I never feel overwhelmed by the workouts he creates for me.
John is incredibly knowledgeable! As an educator, I appreciate and value the time John takes to teach me about the various workout routines and the affect it will have on my body.
Additionally, he takes the time to review my daily food log and holds me accountable for taking the necessary steps I need through my nutrition in order for me to reach my goals.
I believe the single greatest characteristic that distinguishes John as a leader in the personal training field is a heartfelt and self-evident sense of caring for the client.
I would absolutely recommend John to anyone who wants to improve their overall fitness! You will not be disappointed!
Working with John has been transformational to my life! Seriously, I’m 52 years old, and young ladies who are 20 years or more my junior would come up to me and tell me how great I look, how fit, and how strong I am (seeing me at the gym). Based on the results they have seen, I was able to refer other clients.
As to body fat%, weight, etc…I have lost 12% body fat, lost 10 lbs, dropped 2 dress sizes (I was size 7/8, now I’m size 3/4). More importantly, my blood pressure is now normal, and have decreased the medication I need to take.
Working out with John was surprising and different because he knows your strengths and weaknesses. He knows how and when to push me for optimum results. He gets me to work harder by how focused he is when you’re training with him. The results I’ve gotten are surprising because I never thought I could achieve them ie. I’m so strong and never thought I could dead lift 185 lbs.
He is not only amazing when it comes to exercise physiology but also the guidance on healthy eating habits because working out is half the battle, the other half is eating right, sleeping right and understanding your body. All of this is what John teaches/shares, so basically it is a complete transformation of body and mind!
With two kids, I’ve went down 3 pant sizes in 2 months and feel great!
I feel like there is nothing I can’t do now. I’m active, I’m healthy and strong! All it takes is just one time to work out with John, and you’re hooked, you want to keep coming back.

Patricia Lost Over 20 Pounds!
As a mother of 3, I never really felt like I had the time to workout, but I’m glad I just started. John has taken the time to show me proper technique and has pushed me further than I would push myself. He knows what I am capable of and uses that to push me further. I’ve seen amazing results!
Arthur gained 12 pounds of muscle in 6 months!
My initial goal was to gain muscle and I hit my initial goal after 6 months where I gained 15 pounds without really increasing body fat.
This has helped me to fill out a bit and look better. After I hit those initial goals, I set new goals as I was surprised to get results so quickly.
Working with John keeps you honest. Even if I’m not up to working out, I end up going and definitely feel better from before I start working out. In general, I have more energy overall, especially on the days when I train.
I would recommend John to friends and family as I enjoy the training sessions, have had good results and feel that others would do the same! ~ Arthur P.
Emma Lost 16 Pounds and Learned to Love Working Out!
John is very knowledgeable and helpful. When I started training with him, my goal was to lose 20 pounds and be done with working out, but after couple months I found myself loving to workout.
As a girl, I was always bad at PE and never imagined that one day I would go to gym on a regular basis. Now I’ve finished training with him (lost 16 pounds), and I’ll always thank him for bringing me to the “enjoying working out” world.” ~ Emma S.

John Leyva – Personal Trainer/Owner
Bojana Galic – Personal Trainer
There are trainers who get into fitness as a side hobby, but for Bojana fitness is her passion. As a long-time cross-country athlete, Bojana’s life has always been influenced by movement and she wants to help you become inspired to move more and better.
After graduating from NYU in 2018, on track for pre-law, she felt the pull of fitness upending her plans and setting her on a new and more congruent path.
She encourages others to prioritize the benefits of exercise and habits, rather than simply focusing on the aesthetic result. As such, once you become addicted to the beauty of quality work in the gym, the results will follow. Bojana celebrates anyone that’s willing to challenge him/herself in the gym, regardless of intention. For Bojana, training and exercise evoke a euphoric feeling and it’s a gift she wants to share with other people.
She has been a great addition to the Hoboken Fitness team and if you want to redefine your relationship with exercise or simply need help achieving your fitness goals, she is available for both 1-on-1 training and the small group sessions.

Hoboken Fitness Now Independently Training Out of SkyClub Fitness
For 7 Years, Hoboken Fitness was a small personal training studio, first based out of 51 Newark Street, and then more recently (for 4 years) 112 Willow Ave. 112 Willow Ave got sold and they are knocking it down to put up condos, and currently, we are independently training out of SkyClub in Hoboken.
At the SkyClub Fitness, you and your trainer will have access to a Personal Training Only room with one of us, where there is rarely more than 4 other people in there with you, while being able to take advantage of the whole gym, if needed.
When your session is over, you have access to the locker rooms and steam rooms.
What Type of Client Are You?
There are 3 Main Clients We See:
1. Hates the gym, is out of shape, but knows they have to go to be healthier/look better. They need the accountability and knowing someone experienced, to keep them safe is there, keeps them going. We applaud you, because we know we all need that accountability sometimes and we know that going to the gym can be frightening when you’re out of shape and everyone else feels like they know what they’re doing.
2. Goes to the gym currently, but isn’t seeing the results they want. They workout a few times per week, might take classes (anything from yoga to Spin to Orange Theory, etc), but for some reason, what they’re doing isn’t giving them the results they want. The tweaks we can help you make, will blow your mind with how simple (not easy), yet effective they are.
3. You have a Special Event Coming Up. You might like the gym, go regularly (or not), but either way, you have an event coming up that you want to look your best for. Weddings, vacations, or wanting to start working out before getting pregnant (amongst other reasons), where you have a hard deadline and a motivation to go harder than normal. Over the years, we’ve helped at least 25 brides and grooms get ready for their wedding days. If this is you, we’ll love to help you get ready for your big day!
