With over 30 years of experience in strength and conditioning, Fran is one of Body Space Fitness’ most veteran trainers. Having competed extensively in wrestling, boxing, kickboxing, jiu jitsu, Tae Kwon Do, and mixed martial arts, the south Bronx native has shared his knowledge by coaching both amateur and professional fighters, who have competed in a variety of tournaments, including the M1, K1, Ring of Combat, IBJJ, NAGA, Golden Gloves, and Metro Boxing Championships.

Although Fran specializes in the martial arts (he has even named his cat “Ninja”), he has managed to combine this specialty with his love for the dramatic arts, having choreographed award-nominated fight stunts for films. Fran’s deep understanding of the arts also caught the eye of the American Ballet Theatre, as he trains several of their ballerinas.


The combination of Fran’s knowledge and warm personality provides him with the unique ability to design creative and challenging workouts, keeping you engaged and entertained for the entire session. After a workout with Fran, you’ll leave sweaty, smiling, and having learned something new.
