Alan Courtenay is the CEO/Founder of NYC Boot Camps and recipient of the High Impact Trainer of the Year award. He was rated as top 10 master trainer out of 150 different clubs located throughout the Tri-State area during his entire four-year tenure at NYSC. Besides personal individual and group training he mentored a staff of personal trainers at NYSC for two years. Recently he was featured in the HGTV House Hunters episode of 2013.
Born and raised in the Brooklyn community he received a B.S. in Exercise Physiology from Long Island University followed by a M.S. in Exercise Science.
His professional career in fitness training and management spans over eight years during which he has trained adults of all ages and physical condition and taught physical education to children, under the New York Board of Ed, for the prior five years. He participated in basketball camps and semi-pro leagues throughout New York, New Jersey and California and his collegiate experience playing for the Long Island University Blackbirds basketball team inspired and cemented his dedication to improving people’s health, vigor and strength.
Alan’s passion for helping others motivated him to further his education by becoming a NASM-PES Certified Personal Trainer and Certified Weight Management Coach. His 360-degree approach to fitness has helped him to successfully operate his own fitness boot camps in Battery Park City and Prospect Park for the past five years.
His training approach is to consistently progress groups or individuals to higher levels of fitness and conditioning safely and effectively. With this emphasis on improvement there is regular change in style and variations of workouts. His philosophy of a fit body means “no weaknesses” in all categories. This approach works hand-in-hand with keeping the mind just as strong and active as the body and making effective lifestyle changes in eating habits. No key is left unturned in his dedication to keeping his clients motivated and accountable in order to reach their goals.
