I’m the founder of Best Built Fitness, Inc. As the head dietitian and exercise specialist, I have over 10 years of experience in the fitness industry. Having worked in many different environments with diverse groups of clientele, I now develop disease prevention diets and programs for clients looking for holistic options for managing illnesses and weight issues.
Everyday my passion continues to grow, both through my business and my reputation. I eat, breath, and live for the fitness industry, which makes it easier for me to instill a positive message to my clients and those around me.
Bodybuilding accomplishments include:
Elite Species Nutrition Sponsored Athlete
Dream Body Cuisine Sponsorship

1st Place Middleweight Champion NPC Metropolitan, 2012
1st Place Middleweight Champion NPC East Coast, 2015
2nd Place Middleweight NPC Junior National Championships, 2014

I’ve had several articles published on my fitness career and competitive methods in top fitness publications, such as Flex Magazine and Muscular Development. I have also done numerous interviews and training videos on my contest preparation for one of the largest fitness coverage websites in the country, RXMuscle.com.
My training philosophy is that in order to be successful, you have to follow your dreams and do what your passionate about; stay focused, work hard, and never give up. I’ve realized that my passion lies in helping people achieve healthier and better lives through exercise and proper nutrition. However, my approach is different.
-Other recent achievements: Was recognized as one of the most conditioned athletes in the junior national championships in the pre-judging report. I completed a photo shoot for flex magazine at Bev Francis Power House gym in Syosett, NY, this past July.

Changed My Life!
I have been overweight most of my life and I can definitely say that I have NOT been happy with my size. At my heaviest I weighed about 282 lbs and have had Type II diabetes for over 12 years and in that time had to be on many different strong types of diabetic medications.
Over the past ten years I have worked with many different trainers and nutritionists and have had no luck of getting off of my Type II Diabetes medication. After almost losing hope of being able to live a healthy and happy life, a friend recommended that I try Best Built Fitness. Their staff took great care in formulating my meal plan that maximized my weight loss. They are very passionate about what they do and they take an active interest in all of their clients’ wellbeing. I actually look forward to our workouts! I was able to lose 36 pounds of pure body fat and be off all my diabetic medications in just seven (7) weeks, on their customized nutritional plan and training sessions. I highly recommend them to anyone that is seriously looking for a lifestyle change.
With their different approach and structure, I was able to lose 36 pounds of pure body fat and be off all my diabetic medications in just 7 weeks, on their customized nutritional plan and training sessions. I now have a completely different life because of best built fitness. * I highly recommend them to anyone that is looking for a total transformation or a life style change. - Angela Abernathy
Best Decision of My CareerI have been working with Best Built Fitness for the past two years and I can honestly say it has been one of the best decisions of my career. Their staff is friendly, dedicated and motivating - a great group of people to work with.
During the initial evaluation they had assessed everything throughly and had even given me a blood panel chart/prescription to take to my local doctor or lab to see if I had any food allergies. When I’m in NYC I try to train with Dominick at least 2-3 time a week and when I’m not with my trainer, I have my customized resistance training and nutrition program that I follow. They also designed my diet plan so that it complemented my constantly changing schedule.
Within the first four weeks I lost three percent (12lbs) of body fat and felt amazing. Best Built Fitness is great and I would recommend them to anyone who is looking to transform their body on a busy schedule.
