About Apex Performance

We’re more than just a gym, we’re a lifestyle.

When Apex Performance began back in 2014,

The dream was to give people a place to go when they needed help achieving their goals.

Everyone has goals. Some big, some small, but most people have no real plan or structure in place to get them where they want to be. Through the trials and tribulations of the last several years, we have created an environment solely based upon building our members up both physically and mentally everyday towards whatever success they may be chasing.

Are you an athlete looking to make the varsity team or play in college? Maybe you want to drop a few pounds and get in shape to create a better lifestyle for yourself. We all have goals and we all deserve the opportunity to achieve them. Apex Performance is fortunate enough to have the opportunity to work with people from all walks of life ranging from Olympic level athletes to moms, dads, and young children.

We have been part of the journey of changing thousands of lives over the years and we look forward to being a part of thousands more in the future. Whatever your goals may be, know you’re not alone. Whenever you’re ready, we look forward to being a part of your journey.

Andrew Capul

CEO | Founder | Coach

I entered this industry immediately following the conclusion of my college baseball career. I was always an active guy and loved being involved in sports and fitness. The second I hung up my baseball glove I knew I wanted to be involved in a career built around fitness and helping people achieve goals they didn’t believe were possible. I cleaned out my parent’s garage and spent every penny I had to my name on gym equipment to create a place to stay in shape and train a few friends and local athletes. Six years and thousands of community members trained later Apex Performance is still standing strong & growing every day thanks to our loyal family of #ApexAthletes

Manager | Bootcamp Director | Coach

Fitness and health have always been at the forefront of my lifestyle for as long as I can remember. After graduating from Cuny Queens College and spending a few years in physical education, I decided to enter the fitness industry to pursue my true passion. Pivoting away from solely strength and conditioning, I began to focus my energy on creating a FUNctional boot camp with the intention of helping people live a healthy, strong, and pain-free life. I bring a plethora of knowledge-based around correct movement patterns that have our FitFamily learn about their bodies while they’re working up a sweat. I look forward to helping the NR community meantime their health and wellness for years to come.”

I was born and raised in Rockland County New York. I went to North Rockland High School. During my senior year playing baseball, I was awarded Section Pitcher of the Year and was ranked one of the top 5 pitchers in New York State while compiling an 8-1 record with an era of 0.88. Those numbers ranked me as one of the top Left Handed pitchers in New York High Schools. My biggest honor was when I was drafted by the Seattle Mariners in 2000, but opted to play at Oklahoma State. I went on to play several years in professional baseball for teams such as Seattle (MLB), Rockland (Can-Am), and San Diego (GBL). Since retiring from professional baseball, I pursued my goal of teaching kids from Little League to Professionals. I love baseball and have a passion to teach the game the right way. I focus on skill development with an eye on the future — in baseball and life.

After my career was over I decided it was best for me to instill the values and life skills to the next generation by becoming a coach. Yes, baseball is fun, but I realize inspiring values of hard work, teamwork, and respect are much more important than the game. Teaching life through baseball is held in high regard in all of our programs. The main goal we follow is to help players reach their maximum potential on and off the field, but also to provide them an opportunity to play at the highest level possible. Seeing kids grow and achieve their own success is the brightest moment a coach can ask for.

My programs are designed to use innovations that have been developed over the past decade to assure each player follows research-based programs. Our approach to improving performance has been developed through the work of scientific research, biomechanical analysis, and anthropometric data used by experts in all of baseball.

What Our Clients Say

Safe and clean facility. Each trainer develops personal bonds with each athlete and helps them achieve their goals. I personally started the gym wanting to gain weight. In September of 2019, I was 135 pounds with little to no muscle. I now a year later am 170.
