Savannah

Fitness Coach

Fitness has always been a part of Savannah’s life. Early on she was active in sports, including soccer and cheerleading. While in college, Savannah began focusing more on her nutritional habits and getting in to the gym regularly to work with a personal trainer. She felt inspired by her trainer and decided to pursue personal training as a career.

 After moving to Boston, Savannah began working for Boston Sports Club in Newton, Massachusetts, and became a certified personal trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine. With the help of a master trainer, she began working with people one on one, helping them to achieve their fitness goals. 

 Encouraged by her love of boxing and kickboxing, Savannah became a certified kickboxing instructor through the International Sports and Conditioning Association. Savannah also has a background in prenatal fitness and therapeutic exercise . Wanting to branch out and work with a wider demographic of individuals, Savannah brought her years of experience to the team at Fitness Together. She looks forward to working with clients on their journey to their fitness goals and loves to know that she’s helped them along the way.

Vinny

Fitness Coach

Vinny originally found fitness training while competing as an All American Wrestler. The challenge to always better himself and his craft turned into a passion for the fitness world and the passion persisted.  From then fitness became a tool, in which he could take both pride and comfort. Fitness became a part of his life. 

After gaining his NASM Certification he realized the greatest passion was in helping others to achieve their own goals. The pride felt in someone else overcoming their challenges, would far outweigh any feelings of personal accomplishment. This is what drew him to a career in fitness. 

Vinny plans to continue his education into Health and fitness so he may always use the knowledge gains to help guide others to succeed.

Candice

Fitness Coach

Originally from South Dakota, Candice has always loved being active, and
even more than that, being challenged by new things. It can be so easy to get stuck in
the “ruts” of life, which is why she believes it is crucial to challenge oneself with
change. Specifically by, trying something new. The hardest part of almost anything
can be simply starting. It is her honor and joy to begin a new journey of change with
any and all who walk through the Fitness Together doors.
Candice has had the privilege of turning her active lifestyle into a profession.
First as a professional water skier, then as a performing aerial artist, and now as a
personal trainer. It has been a great pleasure to her to be able to combine all of the
things she is passionate about. To take the lessons and techniques she has learned
from world renowned artists and trainers and apply them to functional training for
everyday. It is very important to her to train movements that are relative to an
individuals everyday routine. Because of this interest, she has completed her
CFSC certification.
When Candice is not at the gym or training aerial, she loves to express herself
through vintage fashion.
