Creator and Host
As a young athlete in New Jersey, Petrone trained out of his dad’s old woodshed with just dumbbell’s and a punching bag. The Wood Gym was designed with that in mind…just enough to “get it done.” Period.
Petrone differentiates his place by having the knack for connecting people to people. Every athlete has a sport, a talent, a story, and a goal that allows Petrone to build relationships between athletes. That relationship creates not only competition, but a close-knit training environment (family). His athletes continue to support one another all over the country.
