I'm often asked for personal trainer recommendations, and if you live near the Essex County area of N.J., Sal is a good choice. His facility is the Millburn-Short Hills Athletic Club.
He has an interesting background, starting out with a degree in Urban Studies from Lehigh U. in 1984, then decided to go back & get into the strength & conditioning world. I like Sal because he keeps an ear to the ground by coaching at nearby Chatham high school. He's been in the business for 20 years now. He sells a book on his website about how to develop a profitable personal training business, but the truth is he's done it by ignoring fads & getting people moving.
