Hello, my name is Rick Angus and I am one of Fitness Together’s certified personal trainers at the North Attleboro location. I graduated from Westfield State University in 2009 with a Bachelor’s in Criminal Justice. While attending Westfield State, I was a 4 year starter and senior captain for the football team at the position of defensive back. I was also a sprinter and jumper for the indoor and outdoor track team.
After completing my undergraduate degree, I pursued and obtained a Master’s degree and board certification in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis. Being a Behavior Analyst allows me the knowledge and experience to identify and eliminate the barriers between you and your fitness goals. I have an understanding of how to individualize each and every aspect of your fitness program to ensure your success and find ways to make it enjoyable.
It was a long road to becoming a multi-sport athlete in college. Growing up, I was very out of shape and did not possess a lot of natural athletic ability. It was around freshman year of high school when I decided to make the commitment to fitness in an effort to become a better athlete and, overall, more healthy and happy individual. Over the subsequent years, I committed myself to exercising and eating well and I became a new person both physically and mentally. As great as the result of becoming an all-conference caliber athlete in college was, the things that I learned about myself during the journey was the ultimate payoff. I wanted to be able to share that feeling of accomplishment with others, helping them on their own fitness journey to reach their individual goals, whatever they may be. It was for that reason that I became a Certified Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine.
Whether you are just beginning your fitness journey or looking for a way to change things up, I invite you to come and do that with me. Allowing my combination of Board Certified Behavior Analyst and Certified Personal Trainer develop a plan that addresses all aspects of the process from not just a physical standpoint, but a motivational aspect as well.
