Since April 2010, The Body Shop Studio has provided one-on-one and small group personal training. Anyone, of any age or athletic level, is welcomed to train at The Body Shop. Clients who bring the drive for improvement are the most successful. Most clients train 2-3 days per week. Sessions come in 30 minute and 60 minute options. So why train at The Body Shop?

One of many unique assets to The Body Shop, is our customized training methods.  For our active athletes we conduct neck training protocol, scientifically proven to help reduce the risk of concussion in athletes. The Shop, is one of the few locations in New Jersey that has the privilege to own this equipment.  Additionally, we not only value the mental and aesthetic improvements one makes, but the translatable strength one develops. Hearing stories about tasks people were not able to do, or do without pain, prior to training is equally, if not more important to us. The Body Shop Studio is within walking distance to the Berkeley Heights train station and offers a parking lot. We also have showers available for those who need.  We respectfully do not accept walk ins, and ask that you call or inquire here for a consultation or appointment.


We are centrally located in Berkeley Heights New Jersey!

Mike Occhipinti, Owner


"Eight years ago, I found myself at a fork in the road - I could continue to work in a field I had no passion for that paid well but gave me no sense of personal satisfaction, or take the scary, but courageous, step and change careers to create a future for myself. I wanted to feel good about what I was doing and legitimately help people live better lives. I took the leap of faith, and accepted my first job as a personal trainer, at a large commercial gym, leaving the automotive business in my past. Once I began seeing people achieve success and reshape their lifestyle in and out of the gym, I knew I was doing what I was set out to do."  Read more!

"Mike is an exceptional trainer.  Not only is he able to push you in the gym, but he helps you gain the motivation to continue what he teaches you in your day to day life.  I first went to Mike in June 2014, and am so happy that I did, a little upset I didn't start sooner!  Mike does not focus on the newest fads, or whats trending online - he focuses on core strength and conditioning.  You can tell he is completely dedicated to what he does, and loves every minute of it.  I leave The Body Shop always impressed with how far he has pushed me and how much progress I am making under his guidance."
