A new fitness facility is gearing up to open in Huntington village just in time for summer.
Energy Fitness, billed as a hybrid gym, is aiming to provide the perfect experience for all members.
“We’re not your small boutique and we’re not your big box gym, we kind of fall right in the middle,” Vincent Scaduto, general manager of Energy Fitness at Huntington, said. “What that allows us to do is create that boutique experience, or that personalized nature with each member, while still providing all of the services that you would get at a big gym. We’re like your perfect hybrid.”
Trevor Tucci, a co-owner of the location with Mike Tucci and Mike Fox, said Energy Fitness has been a family owned and operated business for 15 years.
The original location opened in St. James in 2003. Finding success, the founders expanded the business by with locations in Fort Salonga and Miller Place.
“Because we’re family owned and operated, we like to be in communities where there’s families that are looking for that interaction and connection,” Tucci said. “The Huntington community is perfect for that personal, attentive and intimate setting that we offer.”
Energy Fitness originally got its foot in the door with a presale center at 357 New York Ave. That was temporary, though, and it’s now moving down the street to its permanent location at 226 New York Avenue.
Working on some finishing touches, Scaduto said, the 6,000-square-foot space is set to open “within a few weeks,” and will start with 10 trainers on staff.
There are plans to offer several programs focused on shedding fat and building lean muscle. Two main programs are the Energy Elite Program, which offers intense one-on-one training, and the Energy Strong Program, which offers 45 minutes of effective team training.
The goal is to makes Energy Fitness stand out and provide an experience that gets results for members, Scaduto said.
He added, “Whatever goal they want to set for themselves, we really strive and make it a point to connect with them on a personal level and make sure they stay focused and get to where they want to be.”
Prices are based on how often clients participate in certain programs.
Some perks of a membership include full gym access, the Energy Flex Program, towel service and free daycare, along with access to other Energy Fitness locations.
Scaduto, who has been with the company for five years, said his favorite part of it is the people behind it.
“The owners themselves are awesome guys, very down to earth, very caring, very genuine, which transcends into their company values,” Scaduto said. “That’s the experience we try to provide for everybody — that true caring and sincere nature of really trying to get people to reach the goals that they set for themselves in the gym.”
