Ti'Quan Gray


Ti’Quan was born and raised in Staten Island NY and is currently a full time coach.

All his life he was a really shy kid with his head always down, always wearing huge sweaters to cover his body, but when he reached the age of 14 his best friend introduced him to a multi-function weight machine. When he did my first curl, he fell in love and knew exactly what he wanted to do with for life. He wanted to use fitness to help people break out of their shell. 

He’s been into health and fitness for 13 years and still learning more and more till this day. 

Outside of coaching, he likes Skateboarding, rock climbing, Broadway, movies and skydiving.

Juan Melo

Gym Manager

Juan Melo, born and raised in Argentina, has an associate degree in Hotel Management and a Bachelor Degree in Marketing, has also a profound interest in technology and how online tools improve the peoples life. Before the pandemic, most of his work was behind a desk and that put him on weight quickly, feeling heavy, older and without stamina. Soon he found that fitness was the best way to feel good, training at home during the lockdown was the best thing he could do since he had the control of his body, physical and mental health. Living proof that these programs work, following our three pillars (exercise, nutrition and accountability) he lost 40lbs in his path, and is eager to show others the right way to reach their goals. In his spare time, he enjoys gaming, motorcycle riding, movies or ‘binge-watching’ a new TV series. A gathering for a nice Argentine barbecue with friends is a must from time to time. Workouts and fitness are part of his daily priorities now, and not something to do “on free times”. By the way, Emma (his yorkie) is his Sr Accountability Assistant, they’ll both hold you accountable through this path to a healthier life!
