The Fitness Gallery Focuses on Art and Body: Elevating the Spirit

Jodi DeCrenz

The Fitness Gallery in Hastings On Hudson blends two of owner Jodi DeCrenza’s biggest passions: art and body. “The Fitness Gallery is different from the typical gym,” DeCrenza says. “It offers intimate and unique classes. Instead of mirrors, you are surrounded by beautiful works of art created by world-renowned artists. Every three months, a different artist is showcased, creating a fresh and compelling environment. While the exercise classes are about getting in shape, the art is about elevating the spirit.”

DeCrenza says she created the concept to reflect her belief that exercise should celebrate and reveal the most beautiful aspects of people and their lives. The Fitness Gallery offers Yoga, Pilates and Body Sculpt; specialized classes such as Zumba and African Dance; and classes for seniors and for children as young as 6. DeCrenza also offers individualized personal training.

“For more than three decades, I have dedicated my skills, creativity and energy to training and motivating my clients,” she says. “My mission is to ensure that they all realize their full fitness potential.” While her extensive client base includes celebrities and “hard-driving executives who need to stay at the top of their game,” she says she’s just as committed to those people who merely seek to regain movement and bring greater physical vitality to their daily lives.

The Fitness Gallery is located at 5 Main St., Hastings On Hudson, NY. For more info, call 646.372.7404 or 914.231.7067 or visit
