I've been training with Four Fitness for a year and cannot believe the progress I've made. I'm so much stronger and healthier. I used to barely run for a mile on a treadmill and now I can run for over 5 miles outside. My husband also trains with them and is astonished at how much more he can lift. We've both lost fat and gained muscle, but more importantly we feel like our best selves!!
Marcisco taught me the correct way to maximize my workouts. I feel empowered by the knowledge and discipline. Marcisco's famous line is "Let's have fun!" which is code for he's going to kick your ass into shape! When you feel the "good pain" from the 100 squats you've done and you can feel the difference in the way your clothes fit, it's all worth it! Marcisco also encourages his clients to just be active. Minor changes in your lifestyle can make a big difference. I can't say enough positive things about my experience at Four Fitness. I would recommend Marcisco as well as his staff to anyone looking for a personal trainer.
I once read that your body is the only 'home' you will ever have, so you'd best take care of it. As someone who hates to work out, isn't getting any younger, and sits at a desk all day, I decided I needed to be proactive about taking care of myself. In the past I've tried (without success) to get myself to the gym, so rather than repeat past mistakes, I decided to search for a personal trainer. I needed the help holding myself accountable to get to the gym, then the motivation and expertise to keep the workouts productive & interesting. Enter Four Fitness.
I started with Four Fitness in September working with Jose 3 days a week. Jose is motivating, encouraging and has an enthusiasm that makes you want to push even harder. Since starting at Four Fitness, I am surprised that I don't find myself dreading going for my workout which, historically, has been the case. Instead, I am excited to see what challenge awaits and anxious to prove to myself that I can tackle it with (hopefully) success. With Jose's encouragement & guidance, I feel super proud of myself every time I walk out the door at the end of the session.
What I like about Four Fitness is that its not about how much you can lift and how fast, but instead, using your own body weight or low weights at a high number of repetitions to work your way to a sculpted and not bulky look, which is what most people are after. Jose will work with you to ensure you have proper form and are maxing out each movement to challenge yourself and get the most from your workout. Have an ache or pain during an exercise? He will quickly change things up to work around the issue or help alleviate the pain. Four Fitness isn't a mega gym where you are a number, but instead a focused fitness studio where your success is their success.
Marcisco has been my trainer for a about a month now and even though it’s still too early to see big changes, I can see changes that’s leading in the right direction. Exercise is not easy for me but being in such a friendly and none judgmental environment it makes it easy to workout. I can honestly say If you need a trainer Four Fitness is the place. Big up Four Fitness!
I highly recommend Four Fitness! I have been training with them for 6 months and my body has never looked better. The workouts are intense but doable and pricing is very fair for Jersey City area. Can't wait to see what happens to my body by my wedding in July!
I've been training with Marcisco for only over a month but I start to see results already! He makes workout much less complicated and he does a really good job explaining each exercise. His patience and enthusiasm also make me enjoy working out.
Started about a month before and loving it. Marcisco is a total hero. You rock just like you say it. Thank you for everything!
Four Fitness is my go to place to stay in shape! Thanks Jose & Marcisco!
Great gym!! The best thing to happen to this neighborhood. Four Fitness has created an environment of motivation and accomplishment. And I give Four Fitness my highest recommendation.
Four Fitness is a real asset to the Jersey City community!!
Of course, Marcisco is absolutely an amazing trainer. My husband and I started training with Marcisco in February and we feel incredible. His training sessions are about consistency, discipline and commitment. For every session, Marcisco mixes up our workouts and pushes us to strive for our best. He does a great job in creating a friendly and safe environment-- no judgement whatsoever. He is always understanding and expects you to give 100% back.
The mantra of Four Fitness is to empower clients to create positive lifestyle changes--in a consistent and sustainable manner. My husband and I are thankful for the great work Marcisco does. We would highly recommend!!
I've been coming to Four Fitness off and on for over a year now. If work and life would afford me the time to be there continuously, non-stop throughout the year, I definitely would. I say this because Marcisco (owner) is a one-of-a-kind trainer and person. He really cares about your fitness success, and deeper than that, he cares about you as a person. He pushes you hard to succeed, and when he brings on new staff, he only hires individuals who have that exact same mindset.
My experiences training before Marcisco & Four Fitness were mixed. I've had several different personal trainers before, but never something that was consistently good. The trainers were either not great at what they do, or they were great but didn't show up and cancelled a lot of sessions, or they just cared about being exactly on the clock each and every time. This is not the approach at Four Fitness. Marcisco and his team spend the time with you one-on-one, get to know you, help you progress, and never rush you in and out the door. I would highly recommend Four Fitness to anyone in the Jersey City area. Knowing the excellence and entrepreneurial spirit that consumes Marcisco, I wouldn't be surprised if Four Fitness comes to a city near you soon as well. Very highly recommended!
Marsisco and Jose are great! They know what they're doing and know how to train people at their own speed. I would give them 6 stars if there was such a thing.
