Devine named cop of the year.

Posted by: on May 21, 2015

Today we would like to give a huge shout out to NYPD officer Brett Devine. Brett has recently been awarded the police officer of the year for the 113 precinct. Brett was giving this award due to his out standing performance out in the field as well as being on upstanding citizen out side of work. We are all beyond appreciative of what Brett and the rest of the men and women police officers sacrifice everyone day they go to work. Brett was also one of the first cops to arrive at the scene of last weekends shooting of officer Brian Moore. Brett was quick to react and was the escort for officer Moore to the hospital. Brett has been training with us for over 2 years now and we couldn’t be more proud of him. Every time he comes in the gym he knows it will only help him become a better cop and will help him keep our great community safe. Thank you very much for all you do for our great state Brett. Keep up the great work.

Gruppuso stays unbeaten as he wins his conference.

Posted by: on May 15, 2015

Congratulations to Stephen Gruppuso on winning the division three conference championship Monday afternoon. Stephen stretched his undefeated record to 18-0 on the season. In the finals he won 6-2 6-1 finishing off his opponent in straight sets. Stephen has been training with us for 6 months now and has turned himself into a fantastic player. When he first came to us Stephen was run down for playing so much tennis and had wore down his serving arm. With our innovative strength and conditioning training Stephen gained 10 pounds of muscle before the start of his season. His power has gone through the roof this season and his conditioning is the best it’s ever been. Great job Stephen and good luck in the Suffolk County tournament this weekend.

Viggiano plays last games as a Saint

Posted by: on May 12, 2015

Today we would like to recognize one of our longest standing clients here at AFTLI. Stephanie Viggiano started training with us when she was 10 years old. Last weekend Stephanie played her last two college softball games. As a senior at Siena College  Stephanie had her best hitting season of her career batting an unbelievable .363. Stephanie was a four year starter for the Saints and was voted captain of the team her senior year. She is the perfect teammate to have as she is willing to do anything for her team to win. Stephanie is the heart and soul of our facility, always coming in with a smile on her face and the passion to never quit on any workout. Each year she would come home for her summer vacation she would train harder then the previous summer in order to have the best possible season. She truly is part of our family. We are all so proud of what you have accomplished on the diamond and know that you will be even more successful off of it. Good luck with the next chapter of your life where ever it may take you.

Here is a text from Steph to the owner of AFTLI, Jim Schepp.

“Just played the last two games of my career today 😭 had my best season batting .363 thank you for everything couldn’t have done it without you and AFTLI. Love you!”

– Stephanie Viggiano

Congratulations to Spartan race finishers.

Posted by: on May 12, 2015

Congratulations to our clients Liz Keller,Peggy Beirne,Cathleen Schmidt, & Ann Collins as well as our trainers Mike Ciserano and John Dunlop. The race was 3 miles long and consisted of over 20 different obstacles and was held at Citi Field in Queens. Each of the competitors had to battle the elements through out the race since it was a humid day and was raining for most of the race. It was a tacking race and we are very proud of everyone that completed the race. Peggy Cathleen and Ann have been training with us for about 6 months and have improved both there strength and endurance. They all pushed them selfs in there training for the race and it paid off as they were all able to complete the race. Great job everyone and keep working hard.

Great job Sean, You’re an inspiration!

Posted by: on May 6, 2015

Today we would like to give a shout out to Sean Lawler. Sean has been training at the facility for about 2 years and brings an extraordinary attitude to the team! This past weekend Sean participated in the 10k race in association with the Long Island marathon. Sean has been an athlete his whole life but never focused his attention on running. After this weekend we can with out a doubt call him a runner! Sean completed 3/4 of the race at his desired pace and finished the race strong after an injury @ mile 5. Being in the presence of a guy as tough as Sean is on a daily basis is an honor for everyone who steps foot in the facility. Congratulations on completing your first 10k buddy!

HARD WORK PAYS OFF!!

Posted by: on May 6, 2015

Today we would like to recognize John Flock. John is one of our younger athletes at the facility, he is also one of our more RELENTLESS clients when it comes to the way he approaches his training. John is very dedicated to his craft and very rarely if ever misses a day of training. Which is what led him to complete this past weekend the 1 mile run for kids associated with the Long Island half marathon. John had a nice consistent pace through out the whole event and could of easily completed the run multiple times. Congratulations JOHN! We’re looking forward to see what you do next year. Maybe the 5k? 10?
