    "FT Medford Gave Me Such Good Results I Bought My Own Studio"

    Peter before: After my yearly physical, being out of shape and tired all day long, my doctor gave me all the warnings...diet, diabetes candidate, cholesterol creep, pills, etc, etc.  At that moment I made the decision to join Fitness Together to improve my overall health and wellness.

    Peter after: Over 50lbs. weight loss*, drop of over 65 points in cholesterol readings*, energy and vitality...all from proper nutrition and the personal training program designed by the Fitness Together team.  I liked the program so much I bought the company as I am now the proud owner of Fitness Together-Medford!!

    “I am always looking for a deal and when I found the Fitness Together coupon in the ValPak coupon pack it piqued my interest.  I had made it to my 30th year and I wasn’t feeling great about myself.  It was a sad day when I pulled out my summer clothes and none of the shorts fit.  I needed a change and there was that Fitness Together coupon.  I can’t turn down a coupon.  That coupon got me on the phone and a few days later it got me through the door.  The rest has been an amazing experience.

    I am proud to say that I am a Fitness Together success story.  I am one of the most un-coordinated and un-athletic people you will ever meet.  The team at Fitness Together has taught me so much and helped me along my journey.  A combination of exercise and tracking my food intake has proven exceptionally successful.  Eight months in, I am 19 pounds lighter and far stronger than I have ever been.*  My body has certainly improved but so has my mind; I have new friends and a lot less stress.  I don’t always believe these testimonial statements, are they ever written by actual people?  I can assure you that I am a real person.  If you’re interested in learning more, stop by Fitness Together in Medford.  I promise they can vouch for my existence and I’d be delighted to tell you my story in person.”

    I owe all of you a big "thank you" for your skill, patience, and encouragement.

    Dear Friends at FT Medford,

    I owe all of you a big "thank you" for your skill, patience, and encouragement.

    When I stumbled with dread into the studio a year and a half ago, I was out of shape and overweight. I almost passed out after each exercise! I thought, a fifty something woman who hates exercise can't possibly do this stuff! Lift 100lbs? Do elliptical intervals for 20 minutes without passing out? Hold a plank for over a minute? Conquer the dreaded step with weights? Box? I've done all of that and more.

    A whole new wardrobe later, I have a greater sense of well-being and feel that, even if I have to age, I'm now equipped to put up a good fight! I'm in the best shape of my life! With sadness, I will have my last session in the Medford studio with all of you on Saturday. But rest assured that you have turned me into a workout junkie for life! At least now you won't need to listen to me curse and moan when you push me to do "just a few more reps!" You gave me my start and I'm forever grateful. Happy holidays and best wishes for the New Year.

    Jean Nuzzo

         I want to take the time to congratulate Jean Nuzzo in her accomplishments and steps she has made toward her long term goals.  She has been with us at FT Medford since spring of 2008 and has lost a total of 20 lbs and is down a considerable amount of inches all over!!!*  She came to Fitness Together originally to make some lifelong changes and was ready for us to keep her accountable.  Her strength has greatly improved, and she tells us stories of how her daily tasks at work have become undoubtedly easier from her progressive training. 

          One of the most outstanding qualities about Jean is her positive attitude and her constant effort to make “each day count”.  She has struggled in the past with nutrition and we have made steps to better the modifications to enable her to make mindful choices concerning her diet.  She realizes that great nutrition only supports all of her hard work in here!  

          I must let you know----Jean is an inspiration to many, many clients.  Thank you for being you!!! She is an extreme motivation to other Fitness Together clients and the camaraderie when she is here is uplifting.  From her personal experiences over the past ten months, she is able to highlight the importance of personal training, breakfast options that “work” for her, weight and resistance training, making time for herself, and eliminating stress in her every day! Jean is here three times a week and is well aware that when she leaves here felling better that this equates to an IMPROVED QUALITY OF LIFE overall.

           Jean should give herself the credit she deserves. We all recognize her determination  to make the changes she so needed She has stayed on track with her starting goals and is going to achieve them in “baby steps” as she likes to call them. She constantly notates that “there is always room for improvement” on her weekly self-evaluations.  

    We are all so proud of you Jean that you are now JOGGING on the treadmill and making mindful choices regarding your nutrition. 

    She has even started preparing more food to bring with her for her lengthy day at work.  We are in constant support of you, Jean, and know that you and your efforts will ensure your SUCCESS!!!!

  • Ashley Trainor
    Owner, ACSM CPT, TRX Certified

    Hello! My name is Ashley Trainor.  Yes, that is my REAL last name - compliments of my husband Brett – we joke that I married him for his name :) We live here in Medford near Bobs.  I grew up in Lynn (you know…Lynn Lynn the city of sin, you never come out the way you went in…) and Malden - my husband in Somerville and Malden.  We have a 2 year old son named Brohm (pronounced Braum).

    I graduated from Fitchburg State University in 2008 obtaining a BA degree with a focus in Exercise Science, Psychology and Business Admin. After college I began working at Fitness Together in Newtonville MA as a Personal Trainer.  I worked my way to Assistant and then General Manager before purchasing that studio in 2012 from the then owner.

    Before becoming a personal trainer, I traveled to Costa Rica where I rode horseback around an active volcano and zip lined through the Rainforest. I also lived in San Francisco for one of my college summer internships.

    Growing up I played soccer and did gymnastics.  I am a bit obsessed with protein and weightlifting is my favorite form of exercise.  I find running to be a huge mental and physical challenge and so I am looking forward to Alex getting me to do more of it :) I am always experimenting with different forms of fitness. My most recent adventures include P90X, Crossfit, indoor floor hockey and kick boxing. I got into lifting and exercising regularly along with thinking about what I put into my body at Mikes Gym here in Medford as a Junior in high school.

    My whole life I have struggled with depression and anxiety and I have found my release as well as my purpose through working with myself and others to take good care of ourselves. I am passionate about my work and want to share the benefits of an active and focused lifestyle with as many people as possible. I know that taking that initial step is not easy. I am typically high energy so feel free to tell me to relax if need be.  I am excited to be here and look forward to getting to know you!

  • Alessandra Ribeiro
    NASM Certified Personal Trainer

    Hello! My name is Alessandra Ribeiro. I grew up in Brazil and moved to the US about 14 years ago. My entire life, I had been overweight, especially after high school. Things got worse when I came to Boston and I started working in the food industry. That was a big factor in my weight gain, and at some point, I realized that my weight had reached 303 lbs. I was considered morbidly obese and my doctors told me that I wouldn’t live long because of my health issues. Together, we decided that I would go for Gastric Bypass Surgery.

    I followed everything they told me, and by changing my eating to include healthier food, and practicing portion control, I was successful and lost about 125 lb. The hardest part now, is to maintain what I have accomplished. I still have to control everything I eat and how much I eat.

    Exercise changed my life. I started running, and in a matter of time, I was signing up for races.  I ran two half marathons and unfortunately, injuries came along with those. After spending a lot of quality time in physical therapy, and being trained by a personal trainer for two years, I decided to become a personal trainer, and change my life once again. This time, I decided I was changing in order to help other people achieve a healthy life style. I received a Diploma and an Academic Achievement Award from the National Personal Training Institute in Waltham, MA and am excited to help you achieve your goals.

  • Jay Fagone
    NASM CERTIFIED PERSONAL TRAINER

    Hello! My name is Jay Fagone. I graduated Cum Laude (no big deal) from Fitchburg State University in 2010 receiving a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice. I know what you’re thinking. Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice, but working as a Personal Trainer? Well, Yes! I’ve always had a passion for fitness and hope to instill that passion in others as it can change lives for the better.

    I grew up playing sports my entire life and have always had the competitive nature inside of me of wanting to be one of the best. I began weightlifting when I was sixteen years old to perform better as an athlete in high school, where I played soccer for 2 years, baseball for 4 years and basketball for 4 years. I immediately became hooked on working out and have held a regimented schedule in the gym ever since! Being an athlete all of my life I understand the importance of self discipline and hard work and I absolutely love it!

    The most recent job I held I found myself sitting in my cube thinking about how unhappy I was. Most of the days I would sit there just thinking to myself how I couldn’t wait to leave so I could get to the gym and start my workout! That’s when one day it hit me, why not just become a Personal Trainer? Do what I love AND help others! So, that’s what I did. I got certified as a Personal Trainer through NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine) and am also a certified EMT as I would love to be a firefighter some day as well :) 

    Our bodies are one of the few things in life that we can control, so why not take care of them? I strongly believe that exercise is a catalyst to a healthier, happier lifestyle and I hope that I can be apart of that change. My goal as a Personal Trainer is to have people leaving their workout feeling better than when they came in. I am excited to help people achieve their goals and for them to enjoy the process while doing it!

     

    Three of my favorite quotes that I try to live by: 

    “If you’re tired of starting over, then stop giving up.”

    “Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.”

    “Fail forward”
