TRAINER SPOTLIGHT: CORY

Posted on: April 16th, 2018 by CityRow

This week we’re turning our Trainer Spotlight on Cory!

I’m originally from…
I was born on Long Island, but raised in Stuart, Florida.

I came to New York for/because…
I was in school to become an actor.


I got into fitness because…
I got it from my mama. She’s a fitness guru in my hometown and I learned a lot about fitness from her growing up!

I came to teach at CITYROW because…
I was hooked after ONE class. I fell in love immediately, not just with the workout, but with the people.

I love rowing because…
I forget how hard I’m working while I’m doing it.


My teaching style is…
Fun-filled with lots of laughs and sweat!

You should take my class because…
No matter how you feel about yourself before you hop onto a rower, I will make you feel like a superstar by the time you get off.

My music is…
Universal! I pride myself on listening to a wide spectrum of styles. There’s a song on my playlist for everyone.

CITYROW has changed me…
By introducing me to the idea that fitness can be enjoyable. For the longest time, I looked at working out as laborious and something I HAD to do to stay fit. WRONGO! I now go to classes because I can’t get enough of them, because they’re fun… and ok, yeah, because my stomach does look better with abs.


If I could have one celebrity take my class it would be…
A two for one deal with Sinatra and Deano, hoping that one would bring the other and then just rag on each other the entire class, making jokes the whole time.

I fuel up before and after class with…
Hu Kitchen and Dig Inn because – COME ON. They’re so good.

When I’m not teaching, you can find me…
Starring in Jersey Boys at New World Stages (except on Tuesdays). Tickets are available on the New World Stages website. 😉
