About us

John Scardino is more than just an average gym trainer. I have the credentials and experience to get you the results you want from your fitness training.


  • Whether your goal is to get stronger, lose weight, look more athletic or just improve your balance, I specialize in providing you with a personal, customized fitness program based on:
    • Fitness Level
    • Experience Level
    • Specific Goals You Want to Achieve
  • This is the type of coaching you need to reach fitness goals that you once thought were impossible.  I am more passionate about helping my clients achieve their fitness than almost anything else in my life. There is nothing within reason I won’t do to help people achieve their fitness goals, especially my clients.
  • Do you squat 400 pounds or 40 pounds? Your number doesn’t matter.  My coaching will give you the personalized coaching and attention that you need and deserve.


  • Research has shown that 50% of all people starting an exercise program will quit this program within the first six months. I will teach you not just how to get results from your fitness program, but I will empower you with the knowledge and skills essential to maintaining these results over the course of your entire life.
