Verrazano Fitness was recommended to me from a friend and I’m so glad I listened. Absolutely life changing! I’ve gained so much confidence in lifting weights and overall in my athletic abilities. Supportive, high level coaches, and friendly positive environment. If you’re interested in CrossFit, definitely get registered!

TI'QUAN GRAY

COACH

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 it 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 to this day. 

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

PATRICIA

COACH

Patricia is a Naturalized citizen from The Republic of Congo (capital city, Brazzaville). She migrated to the United States on August 02, 1994. She has since been a resident of St. George in Staten. Aside from being a coach to Verrazano Fitness, Patricia is first and foremost a nurturer and teacher to her three-year-old son, Mbemba. Mbemba might soon become a familiar face to the Verrazano Fitness family. Don’t hesitate to strike up a conversation with this brilliant fitness enthusiast the next time you visit the gym.

Two words that come to mind to describe Patricia are motivation and courage. She has transferable skills, multiple abilities, and experiences. Patricia has a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Services from Metropolitan College of New York (formerly Audrey Cohen College), an Associate’s Degree in Science from Columbia-Greene Community College in Physical Education and a specialty in TRX Group Exercise Classes.

ISRAEL GONZALEZ

HEAD COACH AND MANAGER

Over the years I have worked with many different populations including semi and professional athletes, geriatric, pediatric, amputees, paraplegics, and a host of different autoimmune disorders. I have gained a wealth of knowledge and can help you achieve your goals safely and efficiently.1

Among other certifications, I am a CrossFit Level 3 trainer CCFT.

I have been blessed to learn from or have been mentored by some of the greatest minds in the coaching world. In turn, I have had the honor and privilege of mentoring many of the fitness industry’s finest trainers. I have been fortunate enough to coach at the Reebok CrossFit Games and had the chance to be a Judge at the CrossFit Games North East Regionals.

I obsess over every detail of every workout ensuring safety, fun, and consistent results.

I’m constantly looking for opportunities to enhance my knowledge and increase the value of the services I provide. My philosophy is to always be learning and improving!

JUAN MELO

MANAGER

Juan Melo, born and raised in Argentina, has an associate degree in Hotel Management and a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing, has also a profound interest in technology and how online tools improve people’s lives. 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 control of his body and physical and mental health. Living proof that these programs work, following our three pillars (exercise, nutrition, and accountability) he lost 40 lbs 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 “in free time”. By the way, Emma (his yorkie) is his Sr Accountability Assistant, they’ll both hold you accountable through this path to a healthier life!
