Noah Neiman is a New-York based training instructor, boxer, and fitness entrepreneur. He’s known for teaching fitness and boxing boot-camp classes, helping others sculpt their dream physiques.
However, while he’s now a fitness expert, Noah didn’t always consider this career path – he initially studied to become an accountant.

Life Before Fitness
Before Noah Neiman discovered his passion for fitness and boxing, he was on a completely different path – studying to work as an accountant.
Although he excelled in sports such as American football, Noah never considered making a career out of them.
“My dad is a lawyer and my mom is a real estate agent. I’d always been a fan of training and working out, but felt I needed to have a career. “
Growing Tired of Accounting
In his first two years of working as an accountant, Noah began to realize he’d chosen the wrong career path.
The stress of sitting at a desk for eight hours every day and not having the time to exercise was too much for Noah.
He said; “Accounting taught me the stresses of a modern-day job where you’re stuck behind a desk and neglecting your body because you don’t have time to work out.”
An Unexpected Turn of Events
The turning point in Noah’s life came one day while he was at his job. He received a news that his mother suffered a heart attack. Three months later, Noah was faced with more grim news as his father was diagnosed with stage-three cancer.
Needless to say, Noah was devastated by the events. This was his “wake-up call.” He went on to quit his job and move home to take care of his parents during what was “the worst year of my life,” as he recalls.
“As they recovered, it felt like a bit of a wakeup call.”
Choosing a New Career
Realizing the importance of health, Noah stopped pursuing a desk job and set out on a whole new career path – fitness.
He moved back to New York where he started a gig as a personal trainer and boxing coach with the help of one of his friends.“My friend brought me to a class there that happened to be taught by the owner and we struck up a conversation.”
When he found out that I played football and had trained with some of the most professional, world-class strength coaches, he said, ‘Yo, if you want a job, I’ll give you a job.’”
Without much doubt, Noah accepted the opportunity and began working as a class fitness and boxing trainer. Before long, he was selling out every fitness boot-camp he taught.
Achieving Success in Fitness
The success kept on coming for Noah, as he began to realize he could make a lifelong career out of fitness. It was at this point, he dedicated himself to becoming a fitness entrepreneur and world-class trainer.
Five years in, and Noah’s dreams were becoming a reality. Together with his business partners and friends Eugene Remm, Andy Stenzler, and Anthony DiMarco, Noah built a successful fitness company.
One year later, in 2017, Noah took everything a step further by opening his own fitness & boxing studio. In just four months of its inception, the studio was averaging about 600 class students per day.

Boxing as Cardio
As someone who’s extremely passionate about boxing, Noah likes to do boxing practice as his cardio. This not only helps him improve his agility and punching skills, it also improves his metabolism work-rate. Which helps him burn fat quickly.
Explaining why boxing is one of the best forms of cardio, Noah said; “The rigors of fighting and training to be in fighting shape is unlike anything else. The various forms of conditioning, the strength, the muscular coordination, the mental sharpness, all need to be at high levels to be a fighter.”

Idols and Influences
Noah credits his business partner and friend Eugene Remm as one of the influences in his life. Here’s Noah talking about how he and Eugene started their business; “One of my partners, Eugene Remm, was a good friend from college, and he reached out to me and was like, “Listen, you’ve got to start something with me.
I was like, ‘Dude, it’s just not the right time for me.’ You know, I was still building my brand and I just didn’t really want to rock the boat because things were going so well and I was so afraid of losing everything by making a shift.
But, at the same time, I was kind of playing it safe. So I started thinking about it, and then, fast forward to about a year later, he comes back to me and he was like, ‘Man, we’ve got to do this now.'”– Noah Neiman
