It didn't take long in life for Tiffani Ursillo to realize she loved spending time in the weight room more than her friends, but it took years for her personal passion to transform into a full-blown career. When her job in corporate America disappeared, she decided to earn a personal training certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine and pursue her life-long dream of being a fitness guru. She started training her friends and developing new exercise routines with her husband, eventually growing these group sessions into TNT Bootcamps.
Today, Ursillo helps men and women discover fitter versions of themselves via intense boot-camp sessions designed to exhaust and bolster the muscles. She supplements her boot-camp regimens with one-on-one personal consultations and free nutritional counseling, which is the only way to help bruised apples emotionally heal after being plucked from their favorite branch.

Famished pizzavores can sate their desire for a delicious discus with one of Mahwah Pizza Master's specialty pies, such as buffalo chicken ($19.50) or chicken teriyaki ($19.50), or they can simply stick to a conventional 16” cheese ($13.50). The comprehensive menu features familiar and reliable favorites that greet taste buds with back slaps and secret handshakes, including a veal parmigiana hero ($8.95 for large), penne ala vodka sauce ($9), and veal marsala ($14.75).

Or quell the moans of afternoon stomach gnomes with a hearty helping of Kyle’s Famous pulled pork—slow-roasted succulence marinated in a signature barbecue sauce and enswathed between the soft ends of a roll slathered with its pre-fame friend, coleslaw ($7.95). Served on a wide variety of breads, rolls, and wraps, Allendale Eats! sandwiches are made with Boar’s Head brand meats and cheeses, including the Virginia ham ($5.45) and eggplant parmigiana hero ($6.95).
