New York, NY – January 16, 2014 – A feature story about Michael Shaw, Owner of New York Personal Training (NYPT), was recently seen on as well as other major online publications such as Yahoo! Finance, The Boston Globe, New York Business Journal, Los Angeles Daily News and MarketWatch, among many others. 

With his new hallmark philosophy “16 Weeks To The Best Shape Of Your Life,” Michael Shaw has created a system so powerful and revolutionary that its initial success has inspired him to renovate his studio and re-focus his long-range business plan to facilitate the rebranding of NYPT. The program encompasses four modules of training and nutrition, each focused on optimizing his clients’ hormones and building lean muscle. Shaw is hard at work revamping his website to enable fitness enthusiasts from across the globe to join his coven of age defying devotees through NYPT’s new subscription based virtual training studio.

The “16 Weeks Program,” follows NYPT’s decade long tradition of providing a multi-faceted array of programs for all levels of fitness enthusiasts. NYPT will continue to offer their tried and true programs - 30’ leanMAXX High Intensity Training, Buff Bride Wedding Workouts, and custom tailored training, all of which will implement the hormone optimization principles that are now the staple of NYPT. Based on his research, through which he discovered that the best way to effect change in the body is to optimize its hormones (testosterone/estrogen, insulin, cortisol, leptin), Shaw believes that his “16 Weeks” program can be successful for everyone – and adaptable to all levels and challenges.
