Amy Salant

Owner NPTI Graduate BA Communications, Mount Ida College CPR/AED Certified

Amy graduated from Mount Ida College in 2003 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications. Amy has struggled her entire life with her weight, but working behind a desk at finance jobs she was unhappy at, made her peak at a weight considered to be morbidly obese. At that point, she realized the damage she was causing to her body, so she enlisted the help of a personal trainer. Altogether, Amy has lost a total of 85 pounds!

After losing this weight, Amy’s entire outlook on life changed and she decided to change her career as well. She attended the National Personal Training Institute then went on to train clients at Fitness Together in Belmont for two years. She always had a vision of working for herself, and new the next step would be to become a General Manager, and was fortunate enough to find that position at the Fitness Together in Medford. Once Amy heard that the Fitness Together studio in Andover was for sale, it was a natural move into the ownership role which had been a goal for so long. She enjoys nothing more than to help people achieve their health and fitness goals, and is thrilled to have found a career she loves.

Now, Brianna is a competitive powerlifter who travels around the east coast multiple times a year to compete. She enjoys traveling, horseback riding, and lifting weight in her free time. Brianna is passionate about fitness and helping people achieve their fitness goals. With such a driven passion, Brianna got certified as a ISSA Personal Trainer.
