Toby Hartwell

Certified Fitness Coach / Personal Trainer

Hello my name is Toby Hartwell,

I originally joined Fitness Together in Amherst and Northampton Massachusetts in 2011. I received my undergraduate degree from The Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts in 2008. Then I received my ACE and NASM personal training certifications in 2010 and started training professionally soon after, specializing in group athletic training with teens at STRIDES Human Performance Institute. In 2011, when I joined Fitness Together in Amherst and Northampton, I began specializing in 1:1 training, working with people of all activity levels and ages, ranging from 8 to 90 years old.

I really enjoy the 1:1 approach to coaching and the opportunity it allows me to build a relationship with the clients I work with, to earn their trust in an effort to help them create a foundation that will support lifelong change and allow them to achieve their goals. For this reason, I view myself as not only a trainer, but a lifestyle coach. I believe that small positive changes, learned and carried out one day at a time, are the catalyst for lifelong transformations.

In my professional capacity, I draw on my own personal experience. As someone who struggled with his weight and self esteem as a child and young adult, I understand the struggle to build sustainable healthy habits. It is because of my own journey that I know it can be done. 

When I’m not busy motivating others, I can be found hiking the 48 white mountains in New Hampshire, at the gym training for natural body building competitions, or out running with my dogs, Izzie and Cole.

I’m so excited to be part of the Fitness Together Norfolk team. Call today and schedule your complementary session with me.

Sarah Kert

Certified Fitness Coach / Personal Trainer

Hey!  My name is Sarah Kert and I am a certified personal trainer through the National Strength and Conditioning Association and CPR/AED certified through the American Red Cross.  I grew up in New Hampshire, and all throughout school I competed year-round in track and field. 

Following high school, I attended Boston University to pursue a degree in Nutrition and Public Health.  While there, I was also a member of the Division 1 Track & Field team as a pole vaulter.  While pursuing my degree and competing for BU, I discovered my passion for connecting physical and mental health for overall wellness.  In my own life, I have found exercise to be a crucial part of achieving health and wellness.

I have always been fascinated by nutrition and love to cook and bake.  My education in nutritional science has allowed me to really understand the foundation of nutrition, and the amazing relationship that the body has with food.  I am passionate about sharing the knowledge I have curated, so that you can enjoy the food you eat while providing your body with the fuel it needs to perform it’s best!  No fad diets or quick fixes here; whole (and delicious!) foods are the best way to nourish a healthful lifestyle.  In my spare time, I love to create my own healthy recipes and publish them online on my blog and Instagram.  

My goal is to use my extensive personal experience and knowledge to help you to live an active, healthy, and happy life. I am so excited to be a part of the Fitness Together team, and I hope to have the opportunity to help you reach and exceed your goals!

Brian Meadows

Certified Fitness Coach / Personal Trainer

Hello my name is Brian Meadows. In late 2012 I suffered from a major injury. My lifestyle at the time was busy, stressed, and lacking self-discipline. I had no idea what I had done at first.  It took about 2 months of icing and hoping the pain would stop before I finally went in to get an MRI. After the news confirmed my injury of a ruptured disk, I embarked on a rigorous routine of physical therapy including stretching, strengthening my lower back, and rest as a last ditch effort to avoid surgery. Unfortunately I had to have surgery.

 

Because of my journey and not really knowing the importance of a well balanced full exercise and nutritional program, I became an ACE certified personal trainer and a Health Coach. I have not only trained myself to successfully complete 3 Tough Mudder Races, run 3 10K’s , competed in 2 bodybuilding competitions but I also hiked 10 fourteen thousand foot peaks. I have helped many people reach their personal health and fitness goals.

 

I've been a fitness nut my whole life, but fighting my way back from a serious injury has instilled in me a passion to not only achieve my goals, but help other people reach their goals. If you work with me at Fitness Together you will not only gain a friend and a partner in your fitness journey, but you will also make concrete steps towards reaching your goals and experience lasting change.

Jarrett Navedo

Certified Fitness Coach / Personal Trainer

Hi I'm Jarrett Navedo.

I am so incredibly excited to be a part of the Fitness Together Norfolk team! I am originally from New Hampshire where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Health Promotion and Fitness from Keene State College. I am a certified personal trainer through the American College of Sports Medicine. Although I’ve coached in many different settings, I began my journey with Fitness Together in Ashland, Massachusetts in 2016 before moving to Virginia.

I have coached athletes at the NCAA Division 3 level along with middle school sports teams, however my passion lies within the one on one training. I really enjoy the one on one approach that Fitness Together embraces to achieve successful goals with our clients. I fully believe that with the right guidance we can achieve measurable and realistic goals.

In my spare time away from personal training, you can find me achieving my other lifestyle goals. I am an avid strongman competitor and I enjoy taking classes to become a Registered Nurse.

Let’s get started today to become the strongest version of yourself.

Bethany Speece

Certified Fitness Coach / Personal Trainer

Hi there! My name is Bethany Speece. I am a certified personal trainer through World Instructor Training School (W.I.T.S) and CPR/AED certified through the Red Cross. I was born and raised in the great city of Pittsburgh, PA. I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh majoring in Communication.

When I have the honor of training you, I promise I will somehow work Pittsburgh into the conversation.  I have a pretty cool husband and 2 beautiful sons. After 7 years in marketing, I decided I needed to take some time off to be at home with my boys. Fast forward 5 years: kids are in school and Mama got her groove back. Besides spending time with my family, and watching the Steelers play...(see, I told you I would bring it up,) Health and Fitness is my favorite. I love researching and learning new things about the wellness world.  I love running, lifting, dancing, yoga, biking- you name it- I'm up for it. Trying out new and fun workouts is one of my favorite things to do! I would like to say that has always been the case, but I can't.

I was athletic when I was younger, and went to the gym here and there as I got older to maintain my weight, but after I had my last baby, my food choices weren't great and my weight got out of hand. Before I knew it, I didn't recognize myself anymore. I made a choice, started doing cardio and resistance training, started making good food choices, dropped 101 pounds and never looked back. I felt strong. I felt accomplished. I felt like myself. I felt great. I knew I wanted to pay it forward to help others feel great as well. I am so excited to be at Fitness Together helping clients reach their goals and feeling their very best. It all starts with a choice. Together, we make it happen.

JUSTIN SELIGMAN

Certified Athletic Trainer / Personal Trainer

Hi, my name is Justin Seligman. I’m so excited to be part of the Fitness Together team. I am originally from Northern Virginia but moved to Hampton Roads to obtain my Masters in Athletic Training from Old Dominion University. Before attending ODU, I received my Bachelors of Arts in Athletic Training from Cedarville University in Ohio. So as you can see, I am not only a personal trainer but a certified athletic trainer as well. As a personal trainer, I have been certified through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM). As an athletic trainer, I am trained in the prevention, diagnosis, care, and rehabilitation of injuries and various medical conditions.

This knowledge and experience adds another dimension to my personal training at Fitness Together. I am able to help clients of all ages who have injuries and specific medical conditions reach their desired goals.
