Lucas's Fitness Lab is a 501c3 nonprofit with a vision shared between Dennis Remorca, an entrepreneur in the health and wellness industry, and Rob Monahan who has been teaching K-12 students in NYC for over 20 years.
The concept for Lucas's was inspired by multiple events that the two experienced during their 25-year friendship. Rob, a five-time cancer survivor, was a mentor and a key catalyst in the early stages of Dennis's career and taught him that anything is possible with enough drive, a problem-solving mindset, and the coping skills needed to move forward when things go wrong.
After Dennis' son Lucas was born, he lost his father after a hard-fought battle with cancer. His view of the world changed dramatically. These events led to Dennis joining Rob in the non-profit community and to the birth of the idea for Lucas's Fitness Lab.
Our mission statement is..."Giving kids the tools they need to build fit bodies and fit brains." What it really means though, is that all kids should have access to the tools needed to succeed and they should be trained to use those tools so that they can enjoy lifelong success. Making sure that there are no barriers holding back our youth when it comes to education, health & wellness, and mentorship is critical!
