About John Leyva

Mission: To help all of my clients lead happy, strong and empowered lives.

Hi, I’m John Leyva founder of Hoboken Fitness. I created Hoboken Fitness after a lifetime of being active, and more than 20 years of working in the health and wellness industry. I’ve worked with countless clients who ranged from 14 - 65 years old, men and women, athletes to amateurs, but all of them looking to become healthier, stronger, leaner and happier with their lives overall. They’ve called me their coach, their friend, their psychologist, their priest, but in the end always their personal trainer.

The goal I have for each one of my clients is to help them lead a strong, happy, and empowered life.
