Joel has completed his course work at International Sports and Science Association and National Personal Training Institute with 500 hours of hands-on training. Additionally, Joel received training at Equinox Fitness Training Institute with 150 hours of hands-on training. Joel spends time doing extensive research by reading books and attending seminars to bring the best services to his clients.
His experience: He worked as a professional trainer at Equinox fitness center for nearly two years and in Yeled V’Yalda Fitness Center as a fitness coach for a year. He then founded Better Health Studios in March 2010. He has worked with people of different walks of life including: arthritis ridden, fat loss, sport specific, youth training, seniors, and strength training.
All training and programs are designed by Joel Gottehrer.
Joel’s training methodologies are based on two principles:
- Training that’s based on logic and/or is supported by research. It makes sense from a bio-mechanical standpoint before the exercise is implemented. Joel doesn’t accept the status quo or do what the majority does just because the majority does it.
- We’ve tried it and it works. We’ve put our theories to use for years with all kinds of clientele and it works. If a new exercise elicits positive results, we integrate it into our training. If it doesn’t work for any reason, we remove it from our programs. We constantly evolve our training programs to elicit the best results in the shortest period of time for the largest number of people.

He holds a certification in Kettlebell Concepts, IFPA (International Fitness Professionals Association), is a certified Pre and Post-natal instructor, Sports Nutrition Specialist, Personal Fitness Trainer, and holds a Functional Training for Sports certification. In addition, Andre obtained his license in massage therapy back in 2006, and has a firm grasp of human anatomy and physiology due to his intense studies during this same period of time.
His hunger for knowledge and understanding the nature of health and wellness leaves Andre forever unsatisfied with his current knowledge, always seeking more. He continues to attend school and seminars alike to better himself, for both his own sake and for providing the best service he possibly can for his clients. Today, Andre’s primary focus is on designing a holistic approach to health for each client, based on their respective needs and goals. Along with patience and empathy Andre’s objective is to teach his clients how to move properly, improve their nutritional awareness, and learn how to cultivate a fertile mind set in order to establish habitual change. Needless to say, Andre is a very well qualified, and valued member for the Better Health team – his clients would certainly attest to this.

Eugert is one of the newer members of the Better Health Studios team. His love for health and fitness however, stems back many years. Since early childhood, sitting still was never an option. Going from soccer, to basketball to baseball – it’s fair to say that he’s been lucky enough to learn from some amazing coaches on his way to becoming one himself.
Although his formal education came at Binghamton University, focusing on Economics – Eugert took many courses in Health and wellness, nutrition, and weight training. And with years of experience with weight training and exercise under his belt, he is more than capable of helping you achieve your personal health goals. He truly cares about the struggles his clients are facing, including struggles with the workouts, diets, or anything else life throws at them, and he does his best to help. He takes a holistic approach to health, not only looking at how much weight was added on the barbell, or how much farther the client runs, but also how the client is eating, sleeping, managing stress, perfecting posture, and everything in between. Lastly, his philosophy is that no workout should be boring – no one should have to drag their feet to the gym. He wants all of his clients to be excited about their workout, and leave Better Health Studios feeling strong, feeling good, and feeling like they just took a big step in taking care of themselves.
On a personal level, Eugert loves to watch his New York Knicks, loves to play basketball, and loves to spend time with friends and family. He takes his health seriously and practices what he preaches.
