    Years of Experience

    • 19 Years


    • ACE Personal Trainer
    • ACE Exercise Specialist
    • MS Certified Personal Trainer
    • BSBA Sport Management, Nichols College

    Joe was born and raised in Milton, MA, the fifth of seven children. He graduated from Nichols College where he played football and lacrosse and obtained a BSBA in Sports Management. He's always had a passion for helping people realize their true potential. As a child he was bullied a lot for having a hearing impairment, and as a result, feels a kinship with anyone who wishes they could change something about themselves, but feels powerless to do it. As a trainer, it's his goal to make clients feel comfortable and confident in their own skin.

    in my free time I like to
    watch all Boston sports, especially Pats and Celts. I enjoy spending time with my kids, Annabelle and Josie, and my wife, and boss :), Amy. I love watching documentaries and grilling (as long as there's not too much snow). Recently, I have become passionate about improving my tennis game and understanding the role of Chi in my life. A life-long mission of mine is to play a musical instrument-if you can teach me, I'll do your push-ups :)

  • Peter Taylor, Personal Trainer

    Years of Experience

    • 2 Years


    • ACE Certified Personal Trainer

    Born and raised in nearby North Andover, Peter is a proud graduate of North Andover High School. Peter weighed just 3lbs at birth, and doctors told his parents to "take it easy and keep him safe." However, Peter had different plans. He has never allowed his size to prevent him from any activity or used it as an excuse to do less than his best. At North Andover High School, Peter worked hard to become a State Champion Wrestler. His experience with fitness and wrestling showed him how physical activity can improve your long term mental and emotional health. Peter decided to become a Personal Trainer to share this experience with others. Affectionately known as "Coach" within the walls of FT, Peter is open to training anyone who has a desire to make a change in their lives.

    in my free time I like to
    meal prepping,playing with my 3 dogs (lab, husky & beagle!), running, strength training, and relaxing with family

  • Danny Pratto, Personal Trainer

    Years of Experience

    • 7 Years


    • AAPT Certified Personal Trainer

    Danny is from Peabody Ma. He graduated for Peabody Veterans Memorial High School where he was a 4 year Letterman in Hockey. While in High School, he realized that in order to compete in hockey, he had to get bigger, stronger, and faster. It was here where Danny discovered his passion for fitness. He began strength training for his own benefit, and later began training some of his teammates as well. After graduating from High School, Danny enrolled in the American Academy of Personal Training school. He received his certification and immediately saw a need for a youth fitness program designed specifically for children who are overweight or obese. He did this for two years before joining us here at FT in 2022.

    in my free time I like to
    play hockey, exercise, play video games, board games, be with my friends/family, and pretty much any outdoor sport!

  • I have been working out at FT for a couple of years and it has made a dramatic difference in my health. I no longer need hip surgery and I am able to dance and hike again.

  • The high quality training and nutrition advice at Fitness Together has helped me reach my fitness goals. I’ve lost 20 pounds and have a BMI of 22.8!

  • Friendly people who care about helping you achieve your goals. FT helped me prepare to hike the Appalachian Trail at age 65. If you have the will, FT will show you the way.

  • I started working out after having breast cancer and heading to osteoporosis. My primary goal with FT was to increase bone density. I now have normal bone density.
