Business Buzz: 33V Fitness Brings Training To Your Door
Business: 33V Fitness
Owner: Sean Fitzpatrick
Background: “I grew up in Yorktown Heights, N.Y., and earned a degree in Health Sciences Health Administration, having interned at Danbury Hospital. But I was always into exercise, so I ended up getting a got job doing personal training. I fell in love with the coaching aspect and worked my way up through a number of gyms and eventually opened my own in Mamaroneck. After selling that gym, I moved to Newtown with my family, but I still travel to Westchester County to work with several longtime and VIP clients. About 25 percent of my work is done virtually with clients online using an exclusive app developed for trainers like me. I talk with most of these remote clients once a week, do food tracking together, go through all their health habits; I would prescribe exercises and be their guide for three or four months. I try to take clients from point A to point B — coaching and following up through e-mail and the app. My longest client relationships date back 15 years. I have an 88-year-old client I see once a month and others who I see every few days.
Business Focus: “Providing personalized, flexible, and optional virtual wellness coaching through 33V — a branded app that makes it easy to prescribe and record exercise, demonstrations, and programs. The company I trained with learning things like functional bio-mechanics developed the app, and I brand it with my company and put my training program and support material on it. For 75 percent of my clients, I go to their homes once to three times per week. I’m pretty flexible as far as timing and availability, and I love being able to create a program around who you are and what you like to do. I offer a no-cost first time consult. I like to take care of a client’s whole health and wellness picture, but I can work with them exclusively on nutrition or just exercise, and I’m happy to review and understand medically supervised programs or be part of that team if the client asks.
Hours: Flexible based on client needs
