    After being with Fitness Together Burlington for over 16 years all I can say is I love my job! There is nothing better than seeing a client reach their goals and become who they have always wanted to be. After graduating from Saint Joseph's College of Maine with a degree in Psychology & Exercise Science I knew I wanted to work with people, helping them to become the best version of themselves. Over the last 16+ years I earned a wide variety of certifications ranging from Breast Cancer Exercise Specialist to Orthopedic Exercise Specialist to becoming a certified SPARTAN coach. As well as all sorts of fun kookie ones in between.  My goal as a fitness professional is to motivate my clients to achieve their goals. I want to make exercise an enjoyable part of their lives. Whether its being able to get out of bed without pain, run a 5k, get off the floor easier or to just simply increase overall health my team and I are eager to help.  "Train Simple Smart"- Jim Warren

    Spend time with my family and friends spending as much time outside as possible

    Working at Fitness Together for more than 7 years I have learned how to take my love for a healthy lifestyle and share that with our community. Graduating from Plymouth State University with a BS in Psychology, very out of shape, unhealthy, with a significant amount of lower back pain, I turned my attention to my own health. During that time, I realized this is what I need to do. I have to help people become better versions of themselves. In 2012 I became a certified ACE Group Instructor. In 2013 I became a ACE Certified Personal Trainer and never looked back. The journey is real, the journey is hard and I am so blessed to be able to be on that Journey with YOU. The joy of being able to connect with people, get to know them on a personal level and change lives in a positive way really makes me love what I do. Our FT family is amazing, supportive, caring, welcoming and hardworking...clients and our coaches. Our FT family really is like no other. I look forward to meeting you soon!

    in my free time I like to
    Yoga, running, hiking, paddle boarding, walking my pup Sadie, binge watching terrible TV with my Husband, enjoying a nice ride in my Jeep on a warm sunny day. Oh, and a good glass of wine!

    I started at Fitness Together in May of 2016 after graduating from Colby-Sawyer college with a Bachelors in Exercise Science. From the age of 3-18 years old, I participated in competitive dance such as ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop and musical theater. During college, I played rugby as my sport, taught fitness classes at the school’s gym for my part-time job, and interned at various Physical Therapy facilities for class credits. I personally became interested in fitness my freshman year of college when I decided to get stronger in order to perform better as an athlete. Then I switched my major from Nursing to Exercise Science when my mom got a hip replacement and my interest increased when I helped her through the therapy process. I immediately started working at Fitness Together after college because I wanted a career that helped others achieve their goals, feel better, learn how to function throughout their day pain free, and have fun working out in a safe environment!

    in my free time I like to
    I love to read, go hiking, hangout at my family’s lakehouse on NewFound Lake in the summer, run outside, ski in the winter, and drink coffee.

    I first got into strength and conditioning when I was training for my junior and senior year of high school football. I developed a love for improving not just my own life but the lives of others through exercise. I studied Exercise Science at Bridgewater State University and did internships ranging from elite college athletes to adult fitness. I also started the Strength and Conditioning program for all athletes at Bridgewater-Raynham Regional High School and helped kids achieve great success on the field through Strength and Conditioning. I have worked with a lot of clients ranging from power lifters, bodybuilders and athletes all the way to adult fitness. I am extremely excited to be joining the Fitness Together team and I look forward to helping all clients in achieving their goals.

    in my free time I like to
    Coach and watch football, sitting out by my fire pit, beer, traveling and teaching.

    I was a Junior Olympic competitive gymnast for 14 years and retired after high school because of nagging injuries. I was always someone who put extra time outside of practice in the gym to keep strong to try and keep my body healthy. No matter what injury I had there was ALWAYS something I could do in the gym! From a young age working out I could always turn my bad day into a good one and it became my happy place. I have been working as a a personal trainer since 2015. I have worked with many demographics from ages 8 to 85!

    in my free time I like to
    Working out (of course), Netflix and snuggles with my dog Coco and my cat Mooch, spending time outdoors, and spending time with my family, friends and boyfriend!

    • B.S. Exercise Science

    I graduated in 2021 from the University of Maine, Orono with a degree in Exercise Science. Ever since I was young I was very active and tried all different sports before sticking with basketball, soccer, and lacrosse. When I got to high school I played on varsity for the soccer and lacrosse team along with track. I then carried on playing soccer for the club team in Orono. My brother getting into a motorcycle accident sparked my interest for helping others and getting them better through exercise. I worked out with him whenever I could late in high school but fell in love with it my freshmen year of college. As years have gone on, and I have gained more knowledge in the exercise science field. I have only tried to get stronger, more mobile, and more stable. The training room is now my sanctuary. I went to school planning on continuing my education to become a physical therapist to help others but found my passion for functional training and helping others that way!

    in my free time I like to
    Lift heavy weights, hike, read, eat sushi and steak, hang with family and friends, watch the same 5 shows, and pet dogs!
