Hi, my name is Ryan Brod; my hometown is Las Vegas, Nevada. After graduating high school, I decided to join the U.S. Navy. While in the service, I worked as a Hospital Corpsman Preventive Medicine Technician. During my service, I obtained a Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences from Touro University.
After serving the armed forces for over 8 years, I decided to leave and continue a career in the health care field. I began working as a medical assistant, while pursuing a route to a nursing degree.
As a strength and fitness enthusiast, throughout my life, I never thought about becoming a trainer, until I helped a dear friend of mine, put on muscle mass, while loosing over 20lb in 5 months, simply by asking him to follow my routine. To this day, he continues to thank me for changing his sedentary lifestyle. I soon realized how rewarding it was to help others become healthier and reach their fitness goals. My career move changed at that point and from that day forward, I knew I wanted to become a fitness trainer.
I am Certified as a Performance Enhancement Specialist & Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine. I continued my education and graduated with a master degree in Exercise Science from California University of Pennsylvania (Go Vulcan's!) and currently volunteer at the cardiac rehabilitation in Sentara Leigh hospital.
I learned over the years that fitness is a way of life and a lifestyle change. I believe there is no better way to succeed at fitness, than hard work, good nutrition and most importantly, trust with a positive attitude. I am so excited to be part of the Fitness Together team and look forward to working with you.

Hi, my name is Joyce VanOsdel and I am an American College of Sports Medicine certified Personal Trainer and part of the Fitness Together team.
Fitness is not just a job to me; it's a way of life and has been my life-saver. Although athletics have given me a lot of enjoyment over the years, it wasn't until my husband joined the Navy and we were given orders 3000 miles away from everything I knew, that fitness preserved my sanity. My husband was gone most of the time and I struggled to adjust to military life alone. I reached the point, when I realized, I was so miserable I either needed to change something or just give up. I wasn't ready to give up! So I began looking at my options. What did I have the power to change? The answer rang out loud and clear: ME! I couldn’t change my current ‘situation’ but I could channel my frustrations and disappointments into each work out. I finally felt strong, not vulnerable; powerful, not a victim. With a fit body and disciplined mind I was empowered to handle anything. The journey I’d traveled inspired me to enter the fitness field and help others take charge of the things in life they CAN change. I truly believe the toughest part of the journey is making the decision to start! You can become the person you want to be, and at Fitness Together I will coach, motivate, and guide you to results. Let’s win together.
Hey, my name is Kai Rossbach and I'm a certified personal trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine and CPR/AED certified through the American Red Cross. I was home schooled as a child until I graduated, but this never hindered my passion for sports and exercise. I had been involved in sports leagues throughout my adolescence which ultimately led to my love for fitness and conditioning. I personally believe that any fitness goal can be accomplished through determination in maintaining a healthy diet along with a consistent exercise program. I love meeting new people and look forward to helping you achieve your fitness goals through fun and personalized workouts at Fitness Together! "Limits, like fears, are often just an illusion."
Hello my Name is Andrea Macauda. I am a certified personal trainer and nutrition specialist through N.A.S.M. I have been working full time, customizing exercise plans for clients, for the past three years in Boston, Massachusetts.
I recently relocated back to Hampton Roads, where I attended middle and high school, to complete my Bachelors degree from Old Dominion University. I will graduate with honors and complete my education in Psychology and Exercise Science in May 2014.
I am passionate about helping people reach their health and fitness goals. I like to create a positive environment where my clients can feel comfortable, motivated, and empowered to make their vision become a reality. My practices with clients include: corrective exercise, weight loss, strength and tone, kettle bell technique, triathlon training, swim technique, kick boxing, flexibility, and nutrition assessment and meal planning.
When I’m not training with clients, you can find me exercising or surfing at the beach and spending quality time with friends. I’m originally from Virginia Beach and honored to be part of the Fitness Together Team in Norfolk. I also hold certifications in Kettle Bell training, Aerobic and Fitness group exercise, and Red Cross Water safety Instructor and swim coach. I’m looking forward to working with you and helping your reach your goals.
My name is Paul Clayton. I am a certified personal trainer through the National Federation of Professional Trainers and CPR/AED certified through The American Red Cross.
I am passionate about working with people and helping them achieve their fitness goals. I personalize professional fitness workouts that include sports specific training, strength training, boxing, flexibility, cardiovascular training, weight loss, nutrition and mental motivation.
In my spare time when I'm not coaching/training clients or exercising on my own I'm also a certified scuba diver through PADI and a privateer four-wheeler racer.
I truly believe that anyone can accomplish anything that they put their mind to with hard work and dedication. Health and fitness is not a day to day activity, it's a lifestyle! That is what we teach AT Fitness Together. Our goal is to help you achieve and maintain the level of fitness you desire. I would be honored to work with you!
My name is Marieta Sugu and I am originally from Romania. I came to the USA four years ago through a Cultural Exchange Program. Ever since my teen years, I have been interested in exercising and maintaining a healthy spirit. As a consequence, I studied and pursued a degree in Physical Therapy. For almost two years, I worked as a Personal Trainer and Physical Therapist. During this time my goal was to contribute to helping my clients achieve their goals and expectations regarding good health. I’ve been certified as a Personal Trainer in the USA as well with Aerobic and Fitness Association of America. I would like to use my knowledge and experience to design the best fitness program to meet the needs of our clients in order to achieve maximum results. In my opinion a good workout is the most important ingredient of good health. My goal is to help our clients take all the steps needed to achieve a healthy lifestyle.
