    My career as a fitness expert started while I was in college - I earned my personal trainer certification and began working at various gyms & studios while continuing to build my skills as a fitness professional. I've been with Fitness Together over 8 years and really believe the individualized setting and personal approach are key factors in helping our clients reach their goals. I've loved building strong relationships with clients and being a part of their journey towards a healthier lifestyle. I'm a firm believer that a healthier life is a huge factor to living a happier life. To live a healthier life requires an emphasis on functional fitness and this has led me to specialize in working with clients who have a history of orthopedic issues - anything can be worked around with the right level of expertise!

    in my free time I like to
    Outside the studio I love spending time hiking with my dog, snowboarding,and competing in terrain & obstacle course races. I also have a huge love for animals and plan on someday opening up a dog kennel on my property.

    I know the struggle! After graduating college and starting a career, I took the route many people take and became less active. The result was I became 30 pounds overweight and had never felt worse about myself. After resolving to change my lifestyle and never again be that heavy, I read up on as much as I could on proper eating and exercise technique so I could help myself. After attaining my goals, I had to do a bit of soul searching to realize that this is what I really need to do in life - help others as I have helped myself. So I studied to become a certified personal trainer; in the process of getting qualified I completed a 100-hour internship at Just Results Weight Loss Center and attended a Corrective Exercise live workshop in New York. While I have helped many people lose weight and feel better, I realize my interest has branched out into the realm of corrective exercise modalities aimed at improving posture and moving more fluidly. I look forward to helping you look & feel your best!

    in my free time I like to
    My fitness interests include strength training, cardiovascular conditioning, and HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training). Outside of fitness my hobbies include hiking, traveling, and baking (healthy things of course).

    I first met with Billy Pratt towards the end of 2014 to gain some insight into how I can really make an impact in this field - when I saw his Fitness Coach ad in January 2019 I contacted him again because I really enjoy the idea of helping people in a fully-private setting. Prior to this, I was a performing arts manager for 17 years with a crazy-busy schedule. This experience allows me to help others with crazy schedules to build healthy habits in the midst of "chaos". I believe that a healthy lifestyle is the best "medicine" one can take and it has the very best side effects of more energy, a leaner figure, and in some cases, a reduction in the need for medications that are frequently prescribed for conditions including anxiety/stress disorders, insomnia, heart conditions, high blood pressure, allergies, arthritis, diabetes and metabolic disorders.

    in my free time I like to
    Outside of the training studio, I am a lead singer and play rhythm guitar & keyboards for the Highway 70 band, covering classic & contemporary country music. My personal goal is, as a member of the "169 Society", to complete a road race in all 169 towns in Connecticut. One by one I'm getting there! :)

    I enjoy training people of all ages with a big focus on getting you strong! Strength has a big carryover to all areas of life, and this is part of the reason why anyone can start regardless of age or experience level. I started off majoring in Kinesiology but switched to a broader emphasis in Exercise Science after realizing that helping people become fitter would require a more diversified knowledge base. Whether your goal is to move with less pain, pick up your grandkids, excel at your sport, or get toned - strength training is the key! I enjoy guiding people on how to take that first step. I would love to work my way up in the industry and build my client base at FT so I can help more people over time get in the best shape of their life!

    in my free time I like to
    Lifting heavy things makes me feel happy (no surprise there), but aside from that I really enjoy doing anything recreational outdoors, especially skiing. I've also taken up bowling and am working to improve my aim.

    Growing up, sports were a huge part of my life, but when I reached college, I found myself searching for something that could offer both stress relief and a sense of accomplishment. That's when I discovered my passion for weight lifting and exploring new ways to stay active. My journey didn't stop there; with a keen interest in injury prevention and rehabilitation, I found myself working in a physical therapy office before making the leap to Fitness Together. This experience has given me a deep appreciation for the importance of a tailored approach to fitness, one that not only challenges but also protects the body. I'm deeply passionate about helping others uncover the joy of becoming the best version of themselves through fitness. For me, it's all about building personal connections and being a part of someone's journey to a healthier, happier life.

    in my free time I like to
    When I'm not working, you can find me taking a spin class or lifting. I also love to cook, travel, and spend time on my family's sailboat.

  • At age 45, after having recovered from cervical spine surgery, I knew needed to make a change in my life. While my surgery was a great success, the inactivity I had experienced prior to and shortly after the operation left me feeling out of shape. The final straw was when I was walking up the stairs in my house and I actually felt winded. It was at that moment that I realized I needed to do something for my own physical and mental health, to put me on a better track for a healthier life.
    That’s when I called Fitness Together in Avon. I had looked up several different personal training programs in the area, but to me Fitness Together was the winner in all areas of what I was looking for: personalized, one-on-one training in a private fitness room, access to top-of-the-line equipment, a full nutrition education program, exceptionally clean facility and superior sanitary practices, and, most of all, the BEST trainers in the land! I mean that – the trainers at Fitness Together have one goal: and that is to help you reach and exceed YOUR goals in a healthy, natural way.
    My initial consultation was with Billy and he was wonderful at listening to my concerns and goals, and at explaining the whats/hows/whys of the Fitness Together philosophy. After that one consultation, I already felt energized about starting on this new journey toward better health for myself. I was paired up with Lyzz as my main trainer and nutrition mentor, as well as Andy and McKenzy for some training sessions as well. I cannot put into words what a fantastic team they are. Lyzz has not only been
    wonderful at encouraging me and supporting me in reaching my goals, but also checking in on non-training days to see how I am doing and if I need anything. I told her from the beginning that I needed someone to help me with my accountability – and she has done this 110%! Sending suggestions for meals, being super supportive if I felt I was having an “off” day, and more than anything having a wonderful, positive attitude which made me look forward to my training sessions every single time.
    Andy and McKenzy have also been amazingly supportive and informative: Andy will always explain why a particular exercise is going to help me target an area I want to focus on – and how I can replicate it at home on my own – and McKenzy has the greatest “you can do it!” attitude that keeps me going. All of these exceptional trainers have given me the support that have really – finally – helped me believe in
    myself and what I’m truly capable of.
    I also must praise the FT team for always keeping my past spine surgery at the forefront of our training sessions. Lyzz, Andy, and McKenzy would go out of their way to ensure every exercise I was doing would not place undue strain on my neck (even though my surgeon has lifted all physical restrictions for me). This was so important to me; knowing that they had my unique health concerns in mind every step of
    the way.
    All of my trainers have helped me realize my goals – and exceed them. I am finally loving the way I look in the mirror again, loving how my clothes are fitting again, and, more than ANYTHING, loving how I FEEL. I feel healthy, I have come to love my cardio days (I used to HATE cardio!) and actually miss them when it’s a non-cardio day for me. I am a transformed human being!
    Fitness Together is not about an instant fix – it’s about using encouragement, education, and support to help not only reach your goals but to transform your life. I find that my sleep patterns are better, my focus is better, my overall mood is better, and my strength! I love showing my friends and family how STRONG I am becoming!
    Any time I talk to anyone about my personalized training program at Fitness Together, I say it’s the best decision I’ve ever made for myself. I truly mean that. I cannot sing the praises of the team at FT enough.
    I finally have my LIFE back again!
    Thank you Billy, Lyzz, Andy, and McKenzy. You all are and will forever be superheroes to me.
