About Us


Hi I’m Gary Abram co-owner of the Functional Fit Club. I’ve come to the fitness industry after a successful 25 year career as a technology entrepreneur where I co-founded one of the largest privately owned telecom equipment and service companies in Florida. After selling our company several years ago I started to think about my next career opportunity. I have always had a lifelong passion for fitness and nutrition and decided this was the time to create a business where I could use that passion to help others.

When I met my business partner, Corey, through a mutual friend, I quickly realized we both shared the same dream of creating a results based fitness facility to help others achieve their health and fitness goals. Together we created the Functional Fit Club.

Currently as an NASM Certified Personal Trainer, and ageing member of the baby boomer generation I am aware of the challenges of staying fit as we grow older. I am proud to say I weigh less and have a lower body fat percentage than when I was an All-Conference football player in High School. I plan to maintain my fitness to enhance my quality of life and continue to enjoy the recreational activities that I love while helping my clients do the same.

My greatest satisfaction is helping our clients, through our specialized training and customized programs, achieve the specific (and sometimes dramatic) life-changing results they want.

I am a NASM Certified Personal Trainer and Corrective Exercise Specialist that has gained over 10 years of experience in the Health and Fitness Industry. I am extremely excited, proud, and honored to now bring these amazing 10 years of experience to you as Co-Owner of the Functional Fit Club.

My passion and drive to want to help others improve their quality of life is what led me to this field. My long-time dream of creating a facility to better help others in this area has been realized, with the help and collaboration of my co-founder Gary, in the opening of the Functional Fit Club.

Growing up, I continually searched out valuable exercise and nutrition principles that I could use to improve my competitive sports and stay at peak athletic performance. Now, after becoming the father of two amazing kids that I constantly need to keep up with while experiencing the body’s natural aging process, I shifted my research of exercise and nutrition principles to accommodate those needs to maintain great general health and fitness levels. I bring this life experience to my clients.

I really love helping others achieve their specific goals by creating specialized training programs for them to deliver life-changing results. It is extremely rewarding to witness the changes made in someone that works hard and is committed to making those changes and know I was able help.
