Phil Sottile

I am the founder of Intelligent Fitness. I wield a mastery and command of the applied fitness sciences and have tirelessly worked as an entrepreneur and teacher of better lifestyle behaviors since 1994.

Sottile formed his first company at 24 years old while working as a Physical Therapy Apprentice and reversed merged it in a capitalized public offering, eventually using his original concepts, algorithms, approach, and technical philosophies and fundamentals of this project to scribe the foundation and operations platform for Intelligent Fitness in 2001.

Intelligent Fitness is the ORIGINAL FITNESS BOUTIQUE on Long Island and has established itself as a benchmark of excellence that local fitness centers measure their own quality of service.

“Intelligent” is recognized each year as a “BEST GYM” of Long Island each year since 2010 and has held the top spot of recognition in both 2018 and 2019.

Phil Sottile – along with Stacey Lerman – own and operate Intelligent Fitness and are broadly recognized as industry experts. Sottile and Lerman have been honored five times as the “BEST TRAINERS” on Long Island, Sottile has been named “BEST LIFECOACH on LONG ISLAND” for five straight years (2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021) and Intelligent Fitness’ founder has served the Commack, East Northport, Northport, Elwood, Greenlawn, Hauppauge, Smithtown, and Huntington townships longer than any other local fitness provider or boutique Fitness Facility (since 1997.)
