About me
Worked at New York Sports Club for 2 years and left to start my own business and be an independent trainer. We currently serve most of NYC. We operate 24/7, we are more than fairly priced and we travel to the client if requested therefore eliminating many issues such as lack of time one may have to train. We are here to motivate and help you reach any and every goal you set for yourself big or small.

Jarrel is a fantastic motivator "I've been working with Above The Bar Fitness for 2 months now and can already see and feel improvements in my strength, endurance and physique. Jarrel is a fantastic motivator and does a great job coaching me to reach my goals." - Jenna Carpenter
I am extremely pleased to have Jarrel as my personal trainer!"Finding a personal trainer who is not only professional, but is also SUPER flexible is pretty hard to find, especially when you're a college student with a part-time job. As a trainer, Jarrel was able to meet my personal goals and continues to motivate me since I made a switch to a healthy lifestyle. When I first started training with him, I was 155 pounds and truly unhappy with my weight and eating habits. Now, I am a healthy 145 pounds and I am truly embracing this new lifestyle! He always keep me on track, especially when I feel like giving up. He has truly impacted not only my health, but my well-being. I am extremely pleased to have Jarrel as my personal trainer!" - Kimberly George
Was very attentive during our sessions, paying attention to every single detail of my form and technique."Jarrel was very attentive during our sessions, paying attention to every single detail of my form and technique. He kept me motivated and maintained constant communication to ensure I stayed in alignment with my goals, never letting me give up on myself for one second." - Bella jinjikhashvili
I would highly recommend hiring Jarrel. I would highly recommend hiring Jarrel. He is a very professional, patient, punctual and pleasant man, who listened carefully to what were my objectives, and put together a plan to help me reach my goals. I am so happy with his services that after trying out this solution, of him coming to my home-gym for a month, we decided to renew for another month. He focuses all his time and energy solely on me and is building up my mind and body to where I want them to be. I told him from the start that I was out of shape and hadn't done proper work out in too long, and he prepared exercises that were simple at first, but are getting more and more difficult as my strength tightens. We have a gym, but Jarrel brings a bag of additional material, such as resistance rubber bands and suspension straps. We see each other for sessions of 1h30, 3 times a week, including a session on Saturdays if I am traveling during the week. It was very difficult for me at first but now I'm in this happy place where I miss the workout every other day, and I really feel the difference between before and after. I use to believe that I could do this by myself, thanks to training videos I had bought online, but truth be told: you cannot replace a professional, telling you what you're doing right and what you're doing wrong, and giving you the motivation we all need in outreaching ourselves. Sessions are usually broken into 10/15 minutes warm-up, 50 mns exercises with rest as needed, and 20 mns at a slower pace to rest the muscles. During a typical session, we usually do two series of exercise, upper body and core, and then focus more on specific areas. Bottom line, hiring Jarrel was paramount to reaching my objectives, and worth every penny of it. Thank you Jarrel for all your help and support! Michael -
A+ Experience "A+ Experience. Knows all the ins and outs of how to keep you moving and motivated at all times. Whether it was banter to get me through the last 30 seconds of that plank or checking in with me during the week to make sure I stayed on my diet it was obvious that I was a priority." - Ernest Gottschalk
He's extremely punctual, reliable, and works around your schedule and location. "Jarrel is a fantastic personal trainer. Whether you're out of shape and nervous about working out, or an athlete who wants to take it to the next level, Jarrel is your man. Jarrel is a knowledgable trainer who works closely with your needs and careful adapts the intensity of the work out to your level. He's not a shouter, but he's a good motivator with a warm personality and good humor. The gym is probably the centre of the training, but we've also been jogging, played basketball, working out in the park or at home. We've even been rock climbing on occasion. For me the variety helps keep things interesting and that motivates me to work out. Over the past three years my fitness has improved markedly with Jarrel. I'm stronger, have better cardio, lost some fat and gained better muscle definition. Mostly importantly I'm more confident in my body. He's extremely punctual, reliable, and works around your schedule and location. Early mornings before work? No problem. Weekends in the park or at home also no problem. If you're looking for a personal trainer I would recommend Jarrel in the highest possible terms." - David Moyes
Methodical and Patient! "After my broken leg mended from a kayaking injury, it was very weak. So I hired Jarrel to help me strengthen it without causing any further stress or damage to it. His methodical and patient training helped the post-rehab process. We gradually worked out until my leg rebounded beyond its former strength. His encouragement and well planned activities helped me regain the confidence I needed to succeed. Over two years later, he’s still my personal trainer because of his professional dedication and congenial personality. I would highly recommend Jarrel for post-rehab training of any sports injury and/or to enhance your personal physical ability. -
