Meet The Staff


Hello, my name is Greg Crawford and I am a certified Personal Trainer in North New Jersey. I am also the owner and operator of My Training Gym Inc.

After graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science from Towson University, I went on to starting a long and successful personal training career helping hundreds of clients change the way they looked at fitness and life, while establishing myself as a fat-loss expert. I would eventually intern as an Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach at the University of South Florida. There, I was able to finally put the “theory” of Exercise Science into practice and designed programs that helped players and the general population maximize their performance each weekend. I currently am working towards a Master’s certification in Holistic Nutrition as well as holding the following certifications with the following organizations :

  • NSCA: National Strength and Conditioning
  • USAW: United States Weightlifting Association
  • WKA: World Kickboxing Association

In more than 10 years, I have seen countless clients come to me after trying their own routines and diets for months—sometimes years—without seeing the results they wanted. But after designing a special program for them based on their goals, body types and their current condition—they start seeing results immediately!
