Matt Stewart

Certified Personal Trainer, Licensed Massage Therapist

I was overweight for a majority of my life until one day I decided that I had enough!  I was overwhelmed, not knowing where to begin or how to get a handle on my weight.  I decided it was time to get the help of an expert, so I called Fitness Together and set up an appointment.  I can honestly say it was the best decision I have ever made.  I lost sixty pounds of fat and discovered a passion for fitness that I never knew I had.  I had such a positive experience that I decided I needed to become a personal trainer to help positively impact other people’s lives.

I attended the American Academy of Personal Training where I received a solid foundation to build upon and obtain my first personal training certification.  I wanted to be certified by the “gold standard” in the industry, so I studied for and received my National Strength and Conditioning Association Certification. I am always looking for ways to improve my skills so I continue to study extensively in order to expand my knowledge base and learn new techniques to better help my clients.  

I remember what it was like to read the trainer bio’s before my very first session.  I know how daunting the prospect of weight loss or injury rehab can seem, but it is one of the best decisions you will ever make.  I know first hand the power of a great personal trainer can have, and I am eager to begin helping you reach your goals!

This relates to her interest in mindful movement as well; addressing the importance of mindfully moving in your daily life which helps raise awareness in your body and also, around your body.

Certified Personal Trainer

Bob has worked with over a thousand clients in his years as a personal trainer.  He believes that all areas of a person's life improve when they exercise regularly and eat well.  A former track and cross country runner, Bob began weight training in high school, and eventually realized that he could share his knowledge and his passion for fitness with others as well.  He and his wife owned and operated their own fitness studio for six years, before selling it in 2015.

Now Bob works full time as a data analyst in the admissions office at Brandeis University. But his passion for training clients and helping people work toward their health and fitness goals brought him back to personal training at FT.

Robert Taylor

Certified Personal Trainer

Robert knows from personal experience that wanting to look and feel good comes from a commitment to lifestyle change.  Exercise and healthy eating choices must become part of everyday life, not just something we do a few times a year.

Growing up, Robert was a very active kid who enjoyed football, baseball, and basketball. In spite of his active participation in sports, he struggled with his weight from early childhood throughout high school, reaching 255 pounds at one point.  Robert decided it was time to make a change and take control of his health and body. He joined a health and nutrition company where he learned about the benefits of supplementing for health and wellness, then he took it to the next level by becoming a certified personal trainer. Now, having lost 20% of his body weight and at a healthy 205 pounds, he has never felt better.  Robert is an example and role model to anyone who wants to make a change.  Fitness has become his not just his lifestyle but his vocation.
