Coach Dominick

Lululemon Ambassador – Short Hills, NJ
WORDS I LIVE BY
Remember Your Why
REASONS I LOVE TO SWEAT
It clears my mind of stress, allows me to focus on the present moment and be lost in it
A GOAL THAT LIGHTS ME UP
To prove that you are so much more capable at any task, physical or mental, than you even know

Our co-founder and head coach Dominick is an endurance super hero. He has more medals for trail-runs and obstacle races than anyone we know. He is the jack of all trades with running his own multi-faceted business and being there for his wife and family. He is back from a 20-mile run before any of us have even had breakfast. He loves all animals and is a father to two beautiful dogs that he and his wife Laura rescued. Dominick has a kind hearted genuine nature that is magnetic, but don’t be fooled by it. He will make your muscles quiver and you will be sore for days after taking his class!
