Years of Experience
- 15 Years
- B.S. Kinesiology - Umass Amherst

JP has always been involved in athletics and physical fitness. He started playing sports at a young age and was always very active. As he developed as a competitive Tennis and Basketball player, he began strength training and maintaining good eating habits. This led to improvements on the field and a better quality of life. When JP was 13 he told his mother that he wanted to wear shorts every day of his career, perhaps to be different than his suit wearing and briefcase carrying father(teenagers, am I right?). He pursued his passion, which led him to start training at Fitness Together in 2008. In 2011 he took over as part owner and in 2019 he took over the business and relocated to Charlestown with the help of a great team of trainers. With his experience, motivation and passion, JP will empower you to reach any fitness goals.
Alla Nemchenok, Personal Trainer
Years of Experience
- 13 Years
- ACE CPT
- Tactical Athlete for Kettlebells
- MFA School of Visual Arts, NYC
- BFA Parsons School of Design, NYC
Alla has always been fascinated by the idea of metamorphosis - the ugly duckling becoming a swan, the butterfly emerging out of the cocoon. When in a welding class in college a mentor told her "If you can conceive it you can create it". This phrase has shaped her path since. While completing her MFA at the School of Visual Arts Alla began experimenting with her body as sculptural material further exploring the relationship between form and function. This had paved her way into the fitness industry. She has since worked with people from various backgrounds with polar interests from high school athletes, fitness competitors, new moms, stroke and cancer survivors, people making their way toward recovery from injury and, of course those just working on getting fit. To Alla the concept of fitness is not only incredibly personal but also 100% mental. Your body won't go where the mind won't push it. Alla believes her function is to act as a GPS, helping each client set a destination or goal and then guide toward the set point. Relevant Interests Alla enjoyes running, aesthetic lifting, olympic lifting as well as functional training.

WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING...
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.
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!
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.
