About Vinny TorreVincent Torre is the owner, program director of Beautiful Bodies Boot Camp. He is a Crossfit Level 1 (CF-L1) Trainer and Personal Trainer certified by the National Academy for Sports Medicine (NASM). Beautiful Bodies was founded by Bergen County local Vincent Torre, who is also a seasoned Jersey City Firefighter. After his first rescue on the job, Vinny’s passion for helping people was sparked. In his years as a firefighter Vincent quickly learned how being healthy and physically fit was not just a way of life, but a necessary part of his job. He began physically and mentally training his in-house firefighters for triathlons and other sporting events, as well as helping to prepare them for job related tasks.

About Joy GernegliaroI have a background in education and hold both Early Childhood Education and Special Education degrees. After years of teaching and having my own kids, I needed a change of pace. I discovered Beautiful Bodies Boot Camp 6 years ago when Vinny first started it. It not only helped me lose 30 lbs. but completely changed my life. It motivated me to go for my certifications and begin working for Vinny. I have been working at BBBC ever since! It has been an amazing journey watching this grow from a small class to the amazing fitness center it has become, and I am so happy to be a part of it.
About Antonella MckeonAs a teenager I always struggled with my weight until I was 18 and started to go to the gym. As I started to loose weight I took interest in becoming an instructor. I started my fitness career when I was 20 and been teaching for now for 22 years . As an instructor I love working with members in guiding them and watching them achieve their goals. But most of all I love to make it fun and exciting for them so they make exercise as part of their life and daily routine. I’m certified with the International Fitness Association as an aerobic instructor and personal trainer, step-kickboxing and group exercise. My specialty is kickboxing but I also teach boot camp, body sculpting, Bosu and absolution. I have been with BBBC for 3 years now and love every minute I spend with the members and staff. Being an Instructor is my passion!
About Steve JankowskiI credit my father for motivating me into exercising. I played sports in high school and always kept an active lifestyle. I’ve wanted to be a firefighter my entire life and I knew I had to be in shape for it. I had never considered being a trainer until I met Vinny of Beautiful Bodies Boot Camp. He inspired me into the coaching side of training. Seeing other people achieve results is something that keeps me motivated to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I hold an IFA certification as well as Training for Warriors Level 1 and 2 certifications.

Fun filled classes
Beautiful Bodies is a game changer for me. I’ve lost 24.8 lbs and 13% body fat with the guidance of their highly skilled instructors who do more than just motivate. Each instructor is equally committed to their students as they are to the classes they teach.
Not only are the classes always changing and challenging, the trainers are friendly and motivating. They know just how to encourage me and push me to get the most out of every exercise and class.
As a wife and mother, I focus all of my attention and time on my family but Beautiful Bodies serves as my one hour a day that I get to do something for myself. Any day I walk into BBBC stressed, I always leave feeling accomplished and energized to deal with whatever life throws at me. The mental benefit of working out outweighs the physical benefit.
