"A year ago this past March I walked into Elite Physiques and my life changed.Doctors told me to find an exercise program that included weight training for my Arthritis and low bone density. My Problem -I hated gyms and need one on one training. After just one meeting and session with John I was determined that this was for me.John's expertise and knowledge along with nutritional guidance has changed my body head to toe. I have lost 35 lbs., 3 sizes and my bone density has improved greatly. Although I complain when John pushes my strength to the limit - I trust that he knows better than me - and the results show that he does. I feel stronger and look better than I have for years. My name is Ali Esposito and I am proud to say that I am 55 years old. Thank You John !!!!"
"I am a 37 year old Pharmacist who has been training with John since december 2002. I hope to never stop. Exercise has given me energy as well as develop muscle tone and boost my metabolism. John's one on one attention motivates me to stick with it. The cardio portion of his workout has even lowered my blood pressure to the new defintion of normal that medication and diet couldn't do alone."
"I began training with John Maglio at Elite Physiques the day after Labor Day 2003. At that time, I was recovering from a serious concussion that incapacitated me for almost two years and which has still left me with some continuing problems.During my incapacitation I became very sedentary. As a result, I gained fifty pounds. The weight gain only further complicated my condition.As a teenager I was in great physical shape and extremely athletic. I was confident about myself and very happy with the way my body looked. However, in my middle aged years, and because of the injury, I gained a lot of weight and also developed high cholesterol. My health wasn't doing well and I did not feel good about myself.One day, in September 2003, I was driving on Long Beach Road in Oceanside and I noticed a bright yellow sign on a storefront advertising Elite Physiques Personal training facility. I decided to call the listed telephone number.
A couple of weeks before I saw the sign I was contemplating retaining the services of a qualified personal trainer to help with my health and weight problems. In the past, I was always able to motivate myself to eat better and exercise. But after I gained so much weight I felt as if the task was too much for me to handle on my own. I wasn't confident that I could motivate myself to work out and eat right to get my health back on track.I didn't immediately act on my desire to retain a personal trainer. Quite frankly, I didn't know where to locate a qualified trainer. I didn't want to join a gym and have a trainer that trains multiple clients per session. I also didn't want to just hire some "muscle head" college student that was working as a trainer to pay his way through college. I wanted to find someone who was dedicated, very experienced and understood that I was not interested in becoming the next Mr. Olympia. Lifting astronomical amounts of weights and injuring myself, as I did in my teen years and my twenties, was not what I wanted from any personal training program.When I saw the Elite Physiques sign I jotted down the telephone number and called to get information about what was offered at the training studio. I left a message on the company voice mail. John Maglio, the personal trainer and proprietor of the Elite Physiques Personal Training boutique, promptly returned my telephone call. We had a very productive conversation. John and I scheduled an appointment to meet so that I could see his facilities and discuss the services he provides.
I was very pleased by both the content and condition of his private gym facility. It was well equipped with a good balanced combination of weights, weight lifting equipment and numerous cardiovascular machines. The studio was also impeccably kept and very clean. I was even more impressed by John's extensive health and fitness experience. I found out that John was an accomplished bodybuilder who had won several large competitions. In fact, he also trained for several years with eight time Mr.Olympia Lee Haney. Moreover,John was the lead male advertising model for many years for GNC Nutrition and his photos have been ubiquitously displayed in all the GNC health and vitamin store.
John is not only an accomplished bodybuilder. He is also a professional ballroom dancer with over two decades of experience. In fact, he even won numerous events including the nostalgic "Dance Fever" show competition of the late 1970's hosted by Danny Terio.Fitness and personal training is clearly in John's blood. He is both a licensed personal trainer as well as a certified nutritionist. After I retained John as my personal trainer I was so impressed with his abilities and the results I was achieving that I decided to also have John become my nutritionist.
To date, I have lost over 32 pounds while training and watching my diet with John's assistance. I have been able to reduce my blood cholesterol level to within normal acceptable ranges and I have also reduced my waist size by 8 inches. My body fat index level has also been dramatically reduced. I feel a lot better than I did before I started training and when I don't train with John I feel many more of the symptoms and complications that I combat on a daily basis as a result of the severe concussion which I sustained.John's prices for his professional services are extremely competitive and reasonable. His quality training techniques and sensible nutrition program are terrific. Both really produce significant results.Probably the most important thing about John is his integrity and his sincere interest in helping his clients succeed in achieving their goals. These qualities he possesses are invaluable and I really appreciate his efforts.John's a great personal trainer, nutritionist and all around person. Thank you John!"

"About a year ago, I had been complaining to my parents about wanting to be healthier. My parents suggested that I start working out because weight was not my problem so much as being healthy and toned. At first I was not thrilled with the idea, and I had no idea how to use the equipment at a gym. Soon after, my father saw a sign for Elite Physiques and talked to John about being my trainer.
Since then, I have become a lot more toned, and I feel more healthy. The physical change in me also helped me to become a happier more confident person. Before I started training, I was not very active. Now I work out three times a week. For me, training with John is not a task I have to do but something I really look foward to and enjoy. I love being pushed and seeing changes in myself. I am proud when I see the results in the way I look and in what I am capable of.
The atmosphere in the gym is also very comfortable. It is never crowded and everyone who trains there is always friendly. The one to one training has also been a very good experience. Not only is John extremely qualified and experienced, but also extremely encouraging and friendly. He really makes the sessions enjoyable and productive. I've gotten so much out of training with John that I got my father and brother to start training with him too. Training with John is one of the best things I have done for myself, and Im truly thankful for everything he has done for me!"
"Several years ago, my physician recommended that I exercise regularly. He suggested a book, which I bought. I also bought weights and videotape. I leafed through the book and watched most of the tape once and still wasn't motivated to follow through. In other words, I wasn't exercising on my own - and the book and tape were useless purchases. One day, on my way to work, I passed the newly opened studio of Elite Physiques on Long Beach Road in Oceanside, New York and decided to call for an appointment. That was in October 2002 - I have been training with John Maglio ever since. John is knowledgeable, caring and my sessions are fun! I train with John twice a week before I go to work - a great way to start the day. In addition, with John's guidance I have increased my walking on my treadmill to 30 minutes daily."

"I can still remember the look on John's face when I first met him. Here I was I had just had my first baby and put on close to 70 lbs. on. It was Christmas 2000 and my husband bought me some personal training hours with him. It wasn't until March 2001 that I even had the guts to walk back into the gym. Keep in mind I had been doing cardio for over 10 years and had always stayed far away from the weights. In my mind weights made you bigger & bulkier. That was the last thing I needed at this point in my life. Was I wrong. I started doing weight training two times a week. Within a few months, I began to feel big changes. Not only did I feel physically stronger, but mentally I was in control.
After getting set in my workout routine which was 2 days personal training, and up to 6 days of cardio, I joined Weight Watchers and really put all the pieces of the puzzel together. Eating a low fat diet & exercise is the key to success. I can proudly say by the time my daughter was 9 months old I was back in my pre pregnancy clothes, and looking better. My proudest moment was when another gym memeber asked me what I was doing for my arms, she said she noticed how good they looked.
The best part about working out with John is by far his committment to helping me get fit and healthy. He is just as excited about my progress as I am. So here it is 3 years later, and I am still doing weight training 2 times per week.
"For your personal and fitness workouts look no further than Elite Physiques.Since opening his new facility in October 2002 I have known John Maglio, personal fitness entrepreneur of 3342 Long Beach Rd, Oceanside. I have been working out for approximately twenty years. My regiment was getting routine and my workouts
needed a boost. I wanted to see for myself what all the hype was having a personal trainer. For starters you have to scheduled your workouts as part of your life, commiting your time and being on time. At Elite Physiques is where John is dedicated, responsible and motivates you to get the desired health, weight, shape that you can realistically
achieve. John's broad knowledge, experience and enthusiasm is unparreled. When you are at his impeccably clean, modern facilty it is one on one. No distractions at his place, you get what you pay for. I can wholeheartedly recommend anyone serious that wants to change their physique for the better to enroll with John Maglio's personal one on one fitness program. Thank you John for improving my workouts with renewed energy, highly developed skills with everlasting results and most of all a great friend."
"I am the the father of a client of elite physiques. One and a half years ago I walked into Elite Physiques Personal Training to see if my son was old enough to begin training sessions. At the time Russell was five foot five and 260lbs. While he was a very talented and athletic and loved all sports he could never get over the stigma of being the 'fat kid' Comments like, 'wow he is pretty good for a big kid' or the snickering and joking about his running ability not to mention his health. After trying out for the JV baseball team he was one of the last two people cut. The coach told him that he liked his skills and not to give up and to keep trying..
After speaking to John he told me that Russell was not too young and in fact it would be the best thing for him. Well, 18 months later Russell is now five foot nine and 56lbs lighter. He's more agile, quicker, faster and has more stamina then most kids his age. He made his JV baseball team this spring and was out front in most of the sprints that they do daily. The coaches were amazed. He even stole four bases in one game and has quite a few more!!!
He has cut down his time in the mile from over 12 minutes to a little over 7 minutes!!
Russell has adapted to this program as a change in lifestyle and stays within his preferred weight by two pounds either way. He continues to improve his cardiovascular system and is getting more defined and stronger as time goes by. This is not one of those fly by night contraptions you see on TV or a lose weight overnight scam or slimfast or weight watchers where you can lose 50lbs in six months but then gain back 60lbs over the next six months. Once you get involved in the program and incorporate it into your life it will change the way you look and fell for as long as you stay with it. My son is living proof!!"
Thank You John
"About a year ago I walked into Elite Physique, in Oceanside, based on the recommendation of a friend. I had nine months until my son's Bar Mitzvah, and I was very anxious to lose weight and to tone up. In the past, I had belonged (on and off) to other 'gyms,' but didn't go faithfully because I didn't like the fact that they were always crowded, I had to wait to use the machines, and there was never a trainer available to ask a question of if I needed assistance with the equipment. Also, keeping up with the latest in gym-wear 'attire' was not something that I was particularly interested in doing. Upon entering Elite Physique, I was struck with a few things, immediately. First, the facility is kept immaculately clean, and there is no evidence of that overbearing odor of people working out. Next, aside from the one client that owner, John Maglio, was training, there was only one other person in the place and he was on a treadmill doing his cardio. Now, the fact that Elite Physique seemed empty was certainly not because there are no clients. Elite Physique boasts a steady stream of clients. However, as the description 'personal training' denotes, while one client is being trained, there are no more than two other clients on treadmills, if that at all. Elite Physique truly caters to giving 'personalized' attention. There is a vast, but not intimidating amount of equipment to be found at Elite Physique and owner John Maglio designs the use of the equipment to meet the personal needs of each client, on an individual basis. In addition, the facility is climate-controlled and there is music playing and television sets to watch while you are on the treadmill.
After eight months of making that initial commitment to myself and to Elite Physique, I have lost forty-five pounds, a lot of inches, and am well on my way to having the toned body that I have been striving for. People who haven't seen me for a while are totally amazed at the transformation and some of them have, actually, become members of Elite Physique based on the terrific results that I have obtained. Additionally, my husband and twelve year old son have joined Elite Physique and are, also, very happy with the results."
Thanks John For Everything
"I've have been training with John for almost six months and I have had experience major changes in my body. I look broader,leaner and more muscular. My whole body has become much stronger and I've had much more endurance. Before I started training I was struggling to do a running lap and now I'm finishing within the top 5 kids in my gym class. Also in baseball my catching has improved greatly and I'm hitting the ball harder. My throwing strength has also greatly improved. Overall I'm very happy with the results from training so far. I'm in the best shape I've ever been in."
"I've been working out with John for a little longer than a year and a half now, and it's safe to say that this is the real deal folks. If you're looking to get yourself into better shape, then this is the ideal place to be. It's not only about losing weight, but about making a mold of yourself that you can respect. Prior to walking into Elite Physiques for the first time, I weighed roughly 260 lbs, just a bit overweight for my height (about 5'5''-5'7'' at the time). I've always been an athletic type, but I would constantly be winded after any kind of running or even fast movement before coming here, and my agility/dexterity was never where it should have been for a normal teenager. However, it's a year and a half later now, and I've never felt better in my life. Over the course of that year and a half, I lost close to 60 lbs, and grew about 2-4 inches in height, and now my physique is in much better proportion. Not only do I look better, but again, I feel better both physically and mentally, because dropping the weight you once possessed gives you the much needed confidence that you desire when you're as overweight as I once was. Thank you for all of your support, and most of all, thank you John for all you've done for me in this time, and for the future."

"I am a 60yr. old widow who was very unhappy with the way I looked and felt about myself.I was overweight and feeling very low.I spoke to my daugher(who is an aerobic instructor) and she suggested that I find a personal trainer. She suggested John Maglio. I spoke to John on the phone and then came into his place for a test run so to speak. John was very knowledgable and made a few suggestions as to what would help me. I decided to give him a try. Along with his training, I also went on a diet.I have been with John for approximately 20 half hours now and I can tell you that I feel like a new woman. I am much stronger and look so much better. With John and the diet I have lost 17 1/2 lbs. and inches all around. It has been hard work, but worth every ache. John has kept me going when I thought I couldn't go any more. He is very patient and an inspiration to continue working at being the best I can be. I have a ways to go to look the way I want, but I am confidant that with John Maglios guidance and expertese I will accomplish my goal.Thank you John Maglio."
"I have been training with John for about 4 months now, and have already experienced an enormous change. I have gone from a flabby, 165 lbs to a much more defined 150 lbs and feel so much better about myself. I believe John is so effective because he knows so many different exercises and switches them up constantly to maximize effects. He is very good at knowing your limits and pushing you to the max of what that might be. It is great to have someone training you that is and has been in great shape and leads by example. There is very rarely a question he can't answer. He is also great with scheduling and keeping appointments which helps a lot with a busy schedule. Thanks John, this definitely was the best investment I ever made!!"

"I am pleased to write about the best birthday present I ever received....a training package with John Maglio!!! In August, 2003, my husband purchased 10 sessions for me as a surprise gift for my 53rd Birthday, and what a fabulous surprise it was!!! It took me about three weeks to actually schedule an appointment, since all I could envision was twenty-somethings running around a gym, in spite of my husband's assurances that this was "personal one-on-one training." When I finally got up my nerve to go, I found that I was actually ALONE, and had John's complete attention for the entire session!!! He took the time to listen to my fitness wants and needs, and understood the physical and time demands of my job as a flight attendant....together, we set up my goals for training, and we've been working together ever since. In fact, when Christmas, 2003 arrived, my request for a gift was to "re-up" with John.....although I may groan and complain about his pushing me to the limit, the results have been truly rewarding.....and my husband doesn't need to ask what I want for my birthday, either! Once again, I'll be "re-upping" with John!"
"I started working out with John in May 2003, and when I first started, I was afraid that I would be pushed past my limit and that I would hate it. I felt like I was being forced into something that I didn't want to be doing. However, after a little over a year, my outlook on training has completely changed, instead of dreading the three days that I have to go in, I look forward to training every day, and doing cardio. Since John does one on one training, I am able to learn new ways of training every day, something that I will be able to use for the rest of my life. Even though I am only fifteen years old, starting with John is one of the best things I have ever done, my stamina has increased, as when I started, I tried the stairmaster and could barely do it for five minutes but now I do it for a half hour three times a week. John is always there to answer any concerns or questions I might have about training such as where I should feel certain exercises. John is also a great guy to talk to while you're working out, and he doesn't just stand there and make it seem like he doesn't care about you, he keeps a conversation going, which makes it more fun. Overall, I would recommend John and Elite Physiques to anyone, especially if you know what you want to do, and just want help doing it. John will never make you lift more than you can, as he's not there to make you out to be the next Mr. Universe, but just to make you a stronger and more well-balanced person... Thanks John!"
"About a year ago I met John at the bowling alley were I work, I knew that my friend Mike had been training with John to keep in shape for bowling. My friend Mike told me that I should go down to John's place and work with him, so I talked to John and made an arrangement for my first training session. Well little did I know that it would be only the first of many, there is no one else in the world like John. I have to admit that I was never really into working out before I met John but he made me realize that it so important to be healthy especially when you are pursuing an athletic lifestyle.
John will train you harder, longer, and more intense then anyone else, and somehow he makes a half hour feel like a whole day. I have always been concerned about my own medical problems and how they affect me everyday, for example I had to have knee surgery in April of 2004 and I told John that I wanted to be back up on my feet as quick as I could so that I would still have time to practice bowling before I went to college. Well to my surprise with Johns help I was up and walking and training with him 2 weeks after my surgery. Without Johns help I would never have been able to make my way through the post surgical battle. John is the best there is and I am so great full to him for everything he has down for me, not only is he a great personal trainer but he is a great guy and one heck of a good friend to have."
