James Re

General Manager Master Trainer (10,000+ hours training) Nutrition Guru N.A.S.M. Certified Personal Trainer

I joined Fitness Together in March of 2013 after obtaining my personal training certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine. Prior to joining Fitness Together, I spent several years working as a chef and developed a love for cooking. My fitness journey began back in 2007 when I started educating myself in health, and my love of food became my now passion for nutrition. Through this knowledge, I successfully lost 75 pounds and changed my life forever. After having changed my own life, I knew that one day I would seek a career that enabled me to help others achieve their own goals. I am currently in the pursuit of attaining a certification as a correction exercise specialist to better prevent and rehabilitate injuries. I now look forward every day to helping people from all walks of life. The most rewarding part of my job is seeing the transitions people make after being educated, motivated, and guided to the achievement of their goals, and ultimately a healthier, happier, longer life.

Certified Personal Trainer Certified Group X Instructor TRX Certified SandBell Certified

Growing up playing sports, exercise was always been a huge part of my life! Exercise is MY time, MY stress relief and well my passion! I really found my love for fitness 10 years ago the second I walked into a Cardio Kickboxing class.  I felt the amazing effects of this high intensity cardio class and swore I would never stop, and well I never did! After attending group fitness classes for more than 10 years, I decided to turn this love for fitness into my career and never looked back. I have been teaching group fitness and training client 1:2:1 for 5 years and can honestly say I love my job!  Each day is a new day, each client is a new journey and I can't get enough. Every day I smile knowing that I am playing a role in changing the lives of those around me. I graduated from Plymouth State University with a BS in Psychology and knew my goal in life was to help those around me. I look forward to working with you and helping YOU achieve all your fitness goals!

B.S. Springfield College A.C.E. Certified Personal Trainer NCAA Gymnast

Since I was 8 years old I have been involved in personal fitness though my gymnastics training.  My training led me to compete locally and nationally in the Junior Olympic national program.  I continued my career through high school and College.  Spending time in the gym striving to meet my goals in gymnastics had been my passion. After graduation I continued to train students in gymnastics and realized training others was my real passion. I studied and completed a certification program through American Council of Exercise.  Shortly thereafter I joined Fitness Together and started my professional career as a trainer. I enjoy helping people set realistic goals.  I take pride in making sure each client understands the exercise they are doing and that the exercise is being done correctly to maximize the benefit. I enjoy explaining to clients why a well-rounded balanced exercise program designed specifically for them is 
most important. The Fitness Together philosophy of exercise, nutrition and lifestyle is a perfect fit for me. Personal training and lifestyle is a lifelong commitment for me. I want to help you meet your goals. I look forward to working with you as we travel down the path of fitness.
