January 2018: DJ Got Me Fit
DJ Got Me Fit is transforming more than their clients, they’re transforming the image of the boutique fitness industry. DJ Got Me Fit is known for their slogan, “it’s not just a party, it’s a party for your body!” Classes at this studio will blast body fat and tone muscle, while providing a fun, upbeat nightclub atmosphere.
John Lamberti, owner and personal trainer, began meeting with Staten Island SBDC Business Advisor Joe Muller in March of 2015 to open his original location in Willowbrook, Staten Island. John is highly experienced and knowledgeable in this industry, as he graduated from Brooklyn College with a BA in Physical Education and has been a personal trainer for nearly 9 years.
Two years later, John eagerly reconnected with Joe Muller to explore the idea of expanding his thriving business to the Pleasant Plains/Tottenville section of Staten Island. Through visits with the SBDC, John worked with Advisor Muller to write and develop a business plan for DJ Got Me Fit – which is the key component to starting any business. By completing this business plan, Advisor Muller also assisted John by finding various resources, compiling market research, and exploring funding opportunities to grow this established business. DJ Got Me Fit officially hosted their second location’s Grand Opening on January 6th, 2018.
DJ Got Me Fit is now serving clients 7 days a week at both locations – 585 Gannon Avenue North and 245 Richmond Valley Road. Classes here are “not your average fitness class,” with class titles ranging from “DJ Circuit,” “Crunch & Burn,” and “High Low Glow.” John Lamberti and his team are “changing the game” of exercising by transforming the gym atmosphere to combing a nightclub atmosphere with high end group fitness classes and personal training. All of the classes feature the latest DJ remixes of the newest music trends.
DJ Got Me Fit also expanded their offerings to the community by opening up their space to host events. From fun-fit birthday parties for a younger audience to corporate events and team building excursions, John and his team have also hosted paint nights in their fully equipped location including glow light setups, a glow bar, and sound systems.
“John is an ambitious and thriving business owner. Due to the growth of the area and his unique nightclub atmosphere, I believe his second location in Tottenville will do very well.”– Joe Muller, Staten Island SBDC Business Advisor
“They were extremely helpful and no matter what I asked of them, they always went out of their way to find me the answers to my questions. – John Lamberti, Owner of DJ Got Me Fit
