The Man Behind the "Mind": Meet Joshua Margolis, Manhattan, New York

If you've ever wondered about the mastermind behind Mind Over Matter Health and Fitness, wonder no more: we have the scoop on our owner (and certified personal trainer) Joshua Margolis. Though Margolis founded Mind Over Matter in 2004, he's been a personal trainer since 1999 (that's twelve years!). Margolis also holds a Bachelor's Degree in Sports Psychology, and has ceritifications from A.C.E., A.I.F.E., and N.A.S.M. He is also prenatal and postpartum fitness certified.

He currently runs a team of 10-15 employees, who are available across a variety of disciplines, offering a number of services (you can view our programs here, and trainers here). Outside the gym, Margolis is also a great lover of the outdoors: he's an avid surfer, snowboarder and mountain biker. He says his favorite spot in New York City is Central Park ("Manhattan's best gym!") and his fitness philosophy is "your self image and habits go hand in hand; change one and you will automatically change the other.”

Fun Fact: Margolis is also the fitness model in world renowned health and fitness book The Duke Diet.
