Hi! I’m Haley and I am a personal trainer, entrepreneur, and competitive boxer (amateur level) based in Brooklyn, New York. Fitness is a lifelong passion for me, and has been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember.
I’ve been a personal trainer at Equinox since March 2019, have extensive experience in virtual training and group fitness, and oversee my own fitness business. I am certified through the American College of Sports Medicine, with expertise in strength training, boxing, core training, functional movement, progressive body weight training, Pilates, mobility, plyometrics, a variety of cardio training methods, Battle Ropes, and ViPR. I am also currently pursuing my yoga certification.
I enjoy getting to know each of my clients on a personal level, and creating custom programs to suit their lifestyles. I combine what clients want with what they need, in order to maximize our time together and ensure that they’re meeting their goals in a healthy and efficient manner. As someone who is committed to lifelong learning, I stay on top of developments in the fitness industry, and I’m constantly seeking out resources and new certifications to help me become a more knowledgeable trainer. I regularly work with different types of trainers with unique expertise so that I can become more well-rounded, and have a multitude of methods to pull from when creating programs for my clients.

Beginning at the age of 3, I was a ballet dancer, spending more time in dance classes and rehearsals than I did at home all the way through high school. I attended Emory University, and since I decided not to be a dance major, I was only able to enroll in one ballet class per semester. However, I missed being active all the time so I got involved with a new barre fitness studio that opened up near campus. I took classes there daily, sometimes twice a day, and ultimately asked to work for them as an ambassador to promote the studio on Emory’s campus. I loved working at that studio and helping the business grow, but at that time I considered fitness to only be a side hobby, and that I was supposed to get a ‘real job’ if I wanted to be successful.
Upon graduating college, I moved to New York where I worked in corporate business development for about four years. Outside of work I was always staying active – I took a huge variety of fitness classes, frequently went on long walks around the city, and biked to as many places as I could. I also designed my own barre fitness classes, and taught at a local studio in Brooklyn.
However, I was miserable at my day job, and had such a hard time sitting still at a desk all day. By early 2019, I was constantly stressed and irritable, and I knew it was wholly due to corporate life, even though I was successful in my job. The only times during that period that I was happy were when I was doing something active, which led me to take a risk and quit my job to pursue a new career in personal training.
