About James Rizzo

NYC and Westchester County Certified and Insured Personal Trainer

Meet your trainer

Born on November 14, 1979 and raised in Wilmington Delaware. I am an only child, which caused me to feel very alone as I knew I would never be able to share my life experiences with any siblings. My parents, therefore, became my best friends. I acquired my strong family values and morals from my parents who have always embraced their Italian heritage and the Catholic Faith. My parents sent me to the best schools and insisted my education be done in a private setting. I am very proud of my parents and loyalty to them is expressed with the love and respect we share. I feel I had a different childhood then most other children my age because of my strict upbringing. I was very shy and was teased a lot because of my appearance of being tall and lanky with glasses. I quickly became very defensive and couldn’t rely on others because of my lack of trust so I needed to stand on my own. Over time, I came to know myself and what I needed to do to develop the confidence I yearned for.

James Rizzo is a personal trainer based out of Bronxville, NY

I took up exercise as a hobby at first; only to build my body as a means to construct self-confidence and respect from others. It later became my passion which drives me to excel today. I dedicated my extracurricular activities to perfecting my internal and external image, ultimately sculpting my body into the form it is today. During my tenure in high school education, competition became my primary goal. In an effort to stay competitive and well rounded, I also participated in various sports like football, basketball, and baseball. I was motivated by the rigorous activities that I had undertaken and endured by the results I was able to achieve. I developed a strong core, both physically and emotionally, and realized I controlled my own sense of self. Through physical fitness, I also quickly became noticed, thereby also earning the respect I sought. I realized my calling was to help others achieve their potential as bodybuilding had enabled me to do.

Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it. You are in charge of your attitude and destiny.
