Meet Evan Wacht, the Owner of My Gym Cobble Hill
How did you discover My Gym?
I have always been passionate about working children but also loved fitness. After I was done working in schools, I one day looked up a coaching job on Indeed and found out about My Gym West Orange, NJ, and chose to drive all the way out there to see what My Gym was all about. Having had an excellent interview, I found that the hardest restriction for me to work at this gym would be the cost of the commute. So I took the liberty to look up if there were any My Gyms in Manhattan and fortunately there were four. I went to three of them with my resume and cover letter, and within two days, I heard back from them with an opening. After a great interview and floor interview, I got the job as a lead instructor and have loved it ever since.
Tell us about yourself.
I was born and raised on the Upper East Side of Manhattan and am a graduate of the University of Vermont with a BS from UVM's College of Education with a focus on Elementary Education and Special Education. I have many years of experience working with children. For 10 years, I worked at a day camp in Scarsdale, New York, specializing in sports and creative arts with children ages 8-12 years old as not only a counselor but also as a head staff leader. Additionally, I was a student teacher in various elementary schools in Vermont and taught at a special education school in Connecticut.
What are your hobbies? How do you and your family spend your time?
During my off time, I love to work out at the gym, take my dog for a walk, and spend time with friends. I love technology and am always looking for ways to upgrade my apartment. My parents, fortunately, don't live very far from me, so I try and see them as much as possible whether it be for dinner, to play board games at their apartment, or to head out East to their house.
What are you most excited about in bringing My Gym to Cobble Hill?
I look forward to meeting all of your little ones and helping them build confidence in trying new skills. I can be reached any time should you have any questions, comments or concerns.
I look forward to making your and your little ones’ experience at My Gym a memorable and educational one.
