Celebrities such as Grammy award winning songwriter Gordon Chambers and Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz have been some of Darren’s clients. He’s been featured on NY1, News 12 Brooklyn, The Lifetime Channel, as well as in Fitness Magazine and Men’s Health Magazine.
Per their philosophy:
Taylor Fitness uses the CrossFit method, which is a broad, general, and inclusive fitness program. It trains you to be one part gymnast, one part Olympic weightlifter, and one part sprint athlete creating a hybrid athlete. CrossFit trains you at more than one capacity where you are not stuck being really strong or just really fast. It takes functional movements (i.e. movements we as humans do in everyday life) and has the athlete perform them at very high intensities. The intensity level is based on your psychological and physical tolerances, in effect making the program universally scalable.
They are holding an open house on Saturday, January 9, 2010, from 11 am-noon and 1-2 p.m.. You can drop by for a free training session, ask questions regarding technique and obtain advice on nutritional options. Call (347) 533-2439 to register for this event.
