About PhysicalFitnet - Providers of Fitness Videos, Workouts and More

Created by personal trainers, PhysicalFitnet offers online fitness tools that use cutting-edge technology. On a mission to make the world a fitter and stronger place, our initial focus was on trainers and their clients. But soon we realized that fitness enthusiasts (and those who want to be fitness enthusiasts!) would also love our extensive library of exercise videos and great information.

PFN Founder Sheryl Azaroff first turned her passion for staying in shape into a passion for keeping others in shape when she became a personal trainer. A former Certified Public Accountant, Sheryl jokes, “I traded crunching numbers for crunching abs.” While working at one of New York City’s most prestigious health clubs, Sheryl’s corporate background kicked into overdrive and set out to create helpful online tools to promote fitness. She elicited the invaluable help of Leo Troso, an extremely knowledgeable trainer and trainers’ trainer, many talented fitness professionals who demonstrated our exercises in our videos and fitness academics to advise us.
