TFW Brooklyn is a family and women-owned boutique fitness facility owned by mother-daughter duo, Cathy LaCognata and Megan LaCognata. We specialize in strength training & HIIT group classes, teaching people how to train safely and efficiently. We meet you where you are in training and in life, and we progress over time to help you reach your goals.

Cathy’s journey began in 2011 teaching spin classes in Rockaway Beach, NYC where she discovered her passion for helping people find their strength. She became affiliated with the Training For Warriors network in 2013 where she transitioned the facility from spin classes to Strength and HIIT training. Our evolution from a spin to mainly strength training mirrors the transformative journeys of our members. Our classes are focused on overall strength, designed to challenge and uplift you, no matter your fitness level. Whether you’re a seasoned athlete or stepping into the gym for the first time, TFW Brooklyn is where you’ll find the guidance, camaraderie, and personalized attention you need to succeed.
