Meet Dr. Tony Riello


After graduating chiropractic school in 1996 I was ready to set the world on fire and heal the world. After about 10 years of running a successful chiropractic practice I started to see changes in the industry, insurance changes, policy changes and a mentality change.  I found it much harder to realize my mission- to assist people to get healthy.  People were not looking to get “healthy” through chiropractic care. They wanted relief from Back and neck pain. Gone were the days of healing through chiropractic care. I needed to find another way to do what truly made me happy, and realize my life’s mission.

In 2009 I severely injured my Lower Back playing tennis.  I  suffered in pain for the next two years wearing back braces, icing, heating, stretching, getting chiropractic adjustments, doing physical therapy, and medical intervention all the while continuing to adjust my patients.  Unfortunately, absolutely nothing helped my back and I found myself facing the reality that I would need to retire from chiropractic as my back could no longer handle adjusting patients on a daily basis.   In 2011, a friend of mine introduced me to a new way of training it included functional training, joint stability
training, and core fitness training. This new way of training fit my mentality and philosophy of healing the body inside and out and from top to bottom.   In February 2011 I began training my whole body functionally creating core strength and stability.  After only two months I saw such dramatic results in the healing of my own body that I knew I had to share this style with the public.  It was at that point I began theorizing the future Hard-Core Fit.  Within eight months on November 7th, 2011 Hard-Core Fit officially opened.

The day my doors to my training facility opened, I realized that fitness was going to be my future and would allow me to realize my mission.  I am now 100% fully engaged in helping people get healthy through fitness.

We are open six days a week and are committed to our members Health and wellness.

How did Hard Core Fit get its name?

Hard-Core Fit stands for having a hard core and being fit. The main premise behind our staple strength and conditioning class (The Hard-Core Fit Class) is to go through a series of exercises that will build lean muscle mass, burn unwanted fat and generate a rock hard core.

How did Hard Core Fit come to be?

Dr. Tony Riello, founded HCF out of necessity and interest.  He had been struggling with back pain for years and needed to make some drastic changes. He knew that to overcome this he had to get in shape and more importantly, get his Core into shape. After investigating, he found and was inspired by a totally new way of working out. A way to work your core and the rest of your body at the same time. Also he found you can do it in such a way as to work your cardio and amplify your VO2 max (cardiovascular capacity). This appealed to him because he disliked working out gym style, loathed to run long distances and detested doing sit ups. This workout allowed him to avoid the things he did not like and formulated a system that is fun and extremely effective.
