    What a rockstar. The perfect blend of discipline, friendliness and, ultimately, results. Iosif kicked my butt into shape and I decided to stick with him for the fun of it. You won’t be disappointed.

    Iosif takes into account your goals, your needs and your past experience to design workouts that are just right for you. Plus, he's nice to work with. I've been training with him for the past three years and i'm in better shape than ever before.

How did you get started teaching?

After college i wanted to pursue marketing without any success.  The 2008 crash was not kind to me so i used one of my greatest passions and turned it into a career and signed up for Equinox Academy!

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with people of all ages, sexes, colors and fitness levels. From lawyers to cops, delegates to arabic sheeks i always find a common language with everyone and work my hardest to help them!

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

My client Elizabdeth losing 45 lbs in a 4 month period was such a proud moment for both of us!

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Look for professionals who are knowldgable and not necessarily the most good looking.  As they are going to be dealing with your body and they need to know how to get you where you want to be and aviod an possibility of injury.
