John

Endurance Training Specialist

I retired as Lieutenant and a Station Commander from the New Jersey State Police in January of 2018. My experience ranges from policing in the inner cities, such as Irvington and Newark to patrolling suburban towns and highways. I am a Certified Firearms Instructor, Self-Defense for Law Enforcement Instructor and Physical Training for Law Enforcement Instructor.

While the NJSP was my career, I have always been interested in physical fitness and learning how the body works and can perform better.  I obtained my NASM personal trainer certification and my ITCA triathlon coaching certification to gain as much knowledge as I could.

My passion has always been endurance sports where I have competed in well over 200 events, ranging from 5K’s to marathons, sprint triathlons to Ironman distances triathlons. Having trained for and completing 6 Ironman triathlons while working 50 hour weeks on a rotating schedule, combined with a family life and raising 2 fantastic sons, I know the importance of time management while  training smart, efficiently and safely.

I am presently a CrossFit Level 1 trainer and have been programming workouts for over 10 years. I have applied my knowledge and  experiences to help others reach their goals, whether that was entering a police academy, completing a triathlon or just wanting to get fitter and lead a healthy lifestyle

I feel my knowledge, training and “real life” experiences brings a unique component to Four3.
