The Serrano File
Frankie Serrano, born and raised in New York, served in the United States Army while stationed in Fort Bragg, North Carolina as a United States Paratrooper. He is a US government law enforcement officer.
Serrano has over 20 years of experience in the Fitness & Nutrition Industry. His passion for the industry led him to open The BLOCK in 2016.
The BLOCK offered unconventional type exercises in a Garage Warehouse setting. His wife, Annette Serrano, came on board as a Certified Trainer to assist with coaching classes, managing the facility and daily operations.
The Studio and its services quickly became popular, thanks to the type of workouts that they specialized in and the results their clients were achieving.
Soon after, Frankie realized that THE BLOCK was outgrowing its space.
Last January the Serranos relocated the facility to Wayne Avenue and Frankie started working on the Franchise System to provide facilities that would yield the same results nationwide.
With franchising details finalized in November, THE8BLOCK became available as a franchise in over 20 States across the United States.
