"It is through my own personal experience as a practitioner and instructor in martial arts, kick boxing and fitness training, that I have influenced not only positive change in my personal life style and conditioning but also in that of several children and adults regardless of skill level."

"As a parent of a special abilities child, I was driven to make a difference socially if not only for my family but also for those families who find themselves withdrawing into walls of their home simply due to a lack of alternative activity venue supportive the family for physical fitness and interaction."

Daniel L. Dellamarine Sr.

The Helping Hands Gym adaptive fitness program is grounded with the ideal of educating children and adults in the health and social benefit of physical fitness activity.

Thomas Kennedy at Rev It Up - West Berlin, NJ

Thomas Kennedy

"TK"

Meet Thomas "TK" Kennedy - a former 2 sport athlete, recreation and leisure service graduate and current power builder. Thomas is neither a power lifter or body builder, yet he refers to himself as something in between the two, (hence power builder). He now weight trains 6 days a week and leads a fit filled lifestyle.

Born into a family of fighters, it was second nature that Thomas lace up the gloves and step in the square circle himself. From 2002-2006 Thomas boasted an unblemished amateur boxing record but his aspirations were cut short due to injury his junior year in high school. Although he stopped competing, his love and passion for the fight game continued to grow and he now aims to give back knowledge to whomever seeks it!

With the helping hands of his father and grandfather his mission is to boost confidence, instill discipline, teach technical boxing skills and self defense. Through this program, his main goal is to promote leading a healthy and fit filled lifestyle!
