Ari Foote grew up with a healthy obsession for watching and participating in a variety of sports and martial arts. After joining a rigorous academic program in High School he let athletics fall by the wayside, although he still tried to take part in team sports like basketball and baseball. Ari held many jobs after graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology but he longed to be a part of the health and fitness world in some capacity. In 2009 Ari hired a personal trainer to help him with inconsistencies in his own training, and the rest is history. Motivated by the change he saw in himself, Ari changed careers, moved to Manhattan and attended the Academy of Personal Training, a three-month program focusing on anatomy, kinesiology and program design. Soon after he began his training career at a high-end luxury gym in the Upper West Side of Manhattan. It was while training for the Russian Kettlebell Certification in 2011 that he met Antonio Cordova, founder of Precision Athlete. For 6 years he trained at Precision Athlete before founding The Gym in 2017.
He relishes the challenge of getting his clients out of their comfort zones and overcoming their previously held beliefs about what they are physically capable of. Ari is currently studying to become a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the National Strength and Conditioning Association.
