Hi my name is Teris and I own and operate Fitness Together in North Attleboro. FT in North Attleboro was opened in September 2008.
I studied Sports Medicine at Old Dominion University in Norfolk,Va. I was also an Undergraduate Athletic Trainer at ODU for three years where I helped guide athletes through injury prevention and rehabilitation. My interest changed from athletic training to personal training when I began my internship with a large corporation managing their corporate fitness facility. That’s where I fell in love with personal training and I knew that it was my niche. My greatest passion now is to help people regain their confidence and take back their lives by improving their health.
I have over 30 years of experience in personal training, athletic training, group fitness (step, yoga, spinning, powerflex, resist-a-ball) and pilates reformer instruction. Due to my background in sports medicine I specialize in working with correcting muscular imbalances and improving movement while focusing on improved performance. I strongly believe in functional training with progression in getting people Fit for Life no matter the age.
I am certified in personal training through National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM), certified as a Senior Fitness Specialist through Exercise Ect., certified in partner assisted stretching through American Council Of Exercise (ACE), certified in nutrition (NASM) and certified in CPR/AED. I am also a trained group leader for TheiDiet.
