Ashley Trainor

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

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

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”
