  2. Thank you! This was a FANTASTIC feature! I enjoyed it very much! Congratulations to the writer(s) of this piece and the Personal Trainers featured. I don’t know the criteria used to determine those who would be featured but I have to admit that I was a bit disappointed that no one from NYC made the listing. There are quite a few professional Black Personal Trainers, (and, I’m not one of them), here who own their own businesses and/or are known for their celebrity clientele, work in achieving a client’s goals, and the impact/uniqueness that they are bringing and making in the fitness industry. If you need some suggestions for those professionals located here I can definitely lead you to at least 3 who I HIGHLY recommend. Trust me… this will be distributed!
