Larisa Stahl is a certified personal trainer, health coach and group fitness instructor in Hoboken and NYC (and, thanks to 2020, the internet!) and specializes in TRX, kettlebells, pre/post-natal, kickboxing and small group training.

Her love of fitness began in childhood, as a member of the Kangaroo Kids Precision Jump Rope Team. She became an avid runner in high school when she was not starring in the school musicals, and soon looked to exercise as a form of therapy, friendship building, and fun. She began a career teaching group fitness while she was pursuing dreams of a music career in NYC, and soon realized fitness was a dream of its own.

Larisa loves to help people feel their best, mentally and physically, through movement. Bonus points for clients creating friendships through fitness! Her philosophy is summed up by her hashtag – #exerciseisfunyouguys

J-Train has the best trainers in Hoboken. Trainers are super friendly and knowledgeable. Josh has been my trainer for couple years and he has accommodated various type of workouts based on my ailments. When we couldn’t workout at the studio we have done virtual or outdoor workouts. Fitness studio is extremely clean and has all the equipment you can possibly need. Personalized workouts plus private studio is significantly better than your run of the mill sports club.

Fridays have always been a day to look forward to but even more so now since I’ve joined J train and have my training session with Max to kick off the weekend! He makes me look forward to working out, something I haven’t felt in years. There are not enough words I can use to explain how good I feel after my sessions. Not to mention the incredibly supportive and hilarious other trainers I’ve encountered during my time here. Love this place and absolutely recommend if you’re looking for a comfortable and welcoming space to do good, hard work for yourself, mind and body!

Jay-Train is an awesome fitness studio. Personalized training and a fantastic staff. Jay was very patient and worked with me to ensure my form was correct, which maximized my workout. After my first few sessions, I decided to sign up for a monthly membership. I’m excited to see the results I’ll achieve working with Jay over time.

J-Train is an awesome gym and great community! I’ve been working out with Jason for almost 2 months now and he is a great trainer. He tailors the workouts to my goals and keeps me motivated. I’m excited to keep training with him and would definitely recommend J-Train to anyone looking for a personal trainer!

Pete M.

Jason is the man. He is highly knowledgeable and passionate about training. He will keep you discipline and motivated both in and out of the gym!

Atif Q.

Rene is the best trainer ever! I found J Train after visiting and comparing gyms in the Hudson Yards and uptown Hoboken areas. Some felt like I'd have to get all dressed up to work out and others felt like a gym my parents would go to. J train was the perfect thing for me since I wanted personal attention without the distraction of people working out on their own. I feel like I am finally going to get my lifetime goal of a 6 pack. ???

J-Train is such a great gym. It's clean, quiet, and has the best equipment. Rob has been my trainer for the past 6 years and as soon as J-Train opened we started working out there. Rob is just the best!! He's so skilled at his job and makes working out actually FUN!!!


I’ve been going to J Train for almost a month and cannot say enough great things about my entire experience. I started working with Jason and after having my son I was really intimidated to get back into the gym. He completely took away that fear and discomfort from our first session. He not only tailors each workout to challenge me, but he also is extremely motivating and personable. From the minute I entered the studio I could see what strong relationships the trainers have with their clients and it feels like you become a part of their community instantly. I genuinely look forward to my personal training sessions throughout the week and am already seeing great results. I could not recommend J train enough to friends and family.

Adam L.

I haven’t been to the gym in years and was hesitant to get back into a regular work out routine. I reached out to Jay from J-Train and felt comfortable from the minute I stepped in the gym. He’s great, the space is great and the team is A+. Highly recommend giving it a go!!
