Meet the owner!
Hello, my name is Janine LaBriola. I am a certified personal trainer with an undergraduate degree in Nutrition and the proud owner of Park Fitness Gym, located in the Ditmas Park/Kensington area. For the past 15 years, I’ve been helping people get into shape, gain confidence and feel their best with nutrition coaching, one-on-one personal, small group training and bootcamps. I have worked as an elite trainer at Crunch gym in NYC and California.
I was born and raised in the Windsor Terrace/ Kensington area, and it has always been my dream to open up a gym in the neighborhood I grew up in. I have a strong passion for helping and teaching others how to improve their quality of life by being consistent with exercise and nutrition. I chose to work and start my business in the neighborhood I grew up in because I believe it's a wonderful place to live. It has a strong sense of community, and I wanted to contribute to the area and see it thrive!
Covid 19 interrupted our services, but with the help of our online classes and your dedication, our small local business, was able to survive the pandemic.
I ran a campaign to ask for assistance with the last stages of this project that I had been working on and dreaming for years. I had put numerous hours into researching, preparing and taking action to make this gym a reality. And with the help of our generous community, we were able to raise over 10K!
In November of 2018, we were able to open our doors for the community - with the help of you all.
Today, we have a 5- star rating on Yelp and Google, thanks to our amazing community. We also were recognized among the top 27 best gyms in Brooklyn- for our history of delighted customers and providing outstanding service with honesty, reliably, and respect! (According to Expertise.com)
