What is Pinnacle Build(ing)?
Between commuting, work, and making it home for dinner with the family, getting time in with a private trainer can be difficult.
Conceived to accommodate the schedules of a busy clientele, Pinnacle Build(ing) offers boutique fitness instruction without ever stepping out of your own building.
Catering to the residents of high-rise luxury apartment buildings in New York City, Build(ing) trainers will schedule
appointments at your convenience to train you within the in-house fitness facilities of your own building.
Who We Are
Our staff is a team of highly experienced and copiously certified experts on the body.
We are not simply people in good shape, but are your personal guides to wellness and fitness,
having honed the breadth and depth of our expertise through years of practice and training.
Our goal as trainers is to reshape your body as well as your mind when it comes to achieving your personal best,
so that you understand your body better and are able to make the changes you aspire towards.
Everybody’s needs are different—from improved cardiovascular health to increased muscle tone,
our approach is not simply to act as a “trainer” but as a guide, helping you to understand your own
body in order to see your desired results in a safe and timely fashion.
No matter where you are on the spectrum of fitness—whether you are just beginning your quest to a healthier life
and better body, are a regular gym-goer who wants to push yourself to the next level of physical discipline,
or are an athlete in search of an extra edge in your regimen—we pride ourselves on an approach that is studious,
rigorous, and which yields quantifiable results.
Three examples of different types of clients on the spectrum(but not limited to such clients alone)(note that each aspires to the next level):

when she only needs 1300. In order to reach the deficit in calories consumed so
the Novice can shed her unwanted pounds, we prescribe a nutritional regimen so that
the Novice will understand caloric value and make better food choices, as well as
low-impact, fundamental foundation exercises, and maybe even cycling—exercises that will
not stress the joints while providing the exercise necessary to lose weight.
but for some reason he just can’t seem to achieve the muscle tone he wants. After filming his normal exercises
and analyzing his movements, we strap his heart monitor on to make sure he remains in his peak training zones
for caloric expenditure, and have him work with TRX Cables, Kettlebells, and some Pilates training.
After observing his heart rate and metabolism, we guide him through a regimen of energy system training—lateral training with ropes,
TRX Cables, and footwork drills—to improve his cardiovascular strength so his body grows accustomed to prolonged bouts of activity.
