    Dina is a lifelong sports enthusiast; and the proud owner of Fitness Together Lynnfield. Prior to her 20-year career as a personal trainer, Dina struggled with weight. Like many of her FT clients, her weight led to chronic back pain and kept her from doing the things she loved. After earning her Bachelor of Science in Sports Medicine from Sacred Heart University, she set out to overcome her own health challenges. She developed a personal fitness plan—rooted in kinesiology—that helped her lose 60lbs and reduce strain on her back. Today, Dina leverages her personal experience and education to help clients push past their own obstacles. Together with her team at FT Lynnfield, Dina has helped more than 1,000 clients lose weight, regain their strength, and improve their health.

    Outside of work, Dina enjoys spending time with her family and traveling to warmer climates. Over the past few years, she has also taken up golf and enjoys learning new skills to improve her game.
