Clients who've met their goals with us since '06

Joe founded Body by Design in Jacksonville in 1997 and expanded to Raleigh in 2006. We currently see over 220 private clients in five locations spanning North Carolina and Florida. 

 

Although Joe was the nephew of well-know 1970’s body builder Roy Cefalu, he didn’t begin weight training himself until 1994 when he met champion body builder and personal trainer Skip Sylvester.

 

It didn’t take long before Joe became a successful amateur body builder, and in 1997 one of the first full-time personal trainers in North Florida. He is a summa cum laude graduate of both Bachelors and Masters programs at Jacksonville University and a Certified Master Personal Trainer.

 

Our Raleigh studios are private, clean, and the best-equipped in the city. Unlike others, we've invested extensively in the machines, free-weights and cardio equipment that you need to reach your goals rapidly, but also safely.

Our flagship studio in Raleigh is centrally located near historic Five Points at the corner of Oberlin and Fairview Roads. No matter where you are in the Triangle, you're only minutes away from your workout.
