“Stay ready, so you don't have to get ready”


STephen was born and raised in Astoria, along with his two brothers. They constantly played a variety of sports, so competition was instilled in him at an early age. That competitive drive is what made Him captain of his high school hockey and baseball teams, and went on to be an all-city athlete. When he played hockey in college for C.W. Post ,he noticed the athletes were bigger, faster and stronger. He knew he had to put in extra hours at the gym, and started with some research. graduating with a degree in Physical Education, He began teaching full-time in 2012. Using his knowledge of anatomy and physiology, he started to train at a leading corporate gym in 2013, primarily for extra income and fun. This transitioned into a full-time career. Shortly after, he was introduced to CrossFit and HIIT training, which reignited that competitive fire. Training in varied modalities has always been paramount. Fitness has become his passion focusing on helping others to move better so they can train better.

“No citizen has a right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training…what a disgrace it is for a man to grow old without ever seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.”


Originally from San Juan, Puerto Rico, Joel Febus was brought up with a triathlete father who was responsible for sparking his initial passion for athletics, and being outdoors. He immersed himself in everything sports-related, playing tennis, and mountain biking, and excelling in track and field. Joel originally took the personal training position in 2004 to make extra cash while attending college. Again, his passion for fitness prevailed, and he turned it into a full-time career.
