Teris Espinosa

Owner/NASM CPT/NASM FNS/Certified Senior Fitness Specialist

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.

Brian Espinosa

Personal Trainer ISSA CPT and Sports Conditioning Coach

Hello! My name is Brian Espinosa and I am a personal trainer and the sports conditioning coach here at Fitness Together North Attleboro.  I graduated from Bridgewater State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Physical Education and concentration in Fitness Club Administration and Recreation.  At Bridgewater State I gained great knowledge in physiology of exercise and also developed great leadership and management skills. 

I understand the importance of knowing the difference of the needs of each client while I can promise to be focused completely on the achieving the goals of each person who walks through the door.  Whether you’re a beginner, an elite athlete, a child, or a senior citizen I know what it takes to bring you to the next level and help you reach new limits!  Athletics have also been a big part of my life as long as I can remember. 

While at Bridgewater State I competed in the sport of track and field and developed a great passion for the sport and training my body to be in peak physical condition while understanding the importance of training, dieting, and rest which are all important in reaching one’s potential.  Also through strong faith and positivity I believe you can accomplish anything you set your mind to.  Through all of these components I became an All-New England Champion in the 200 Meters indoors with a time of 21.62 seconds and two-time All-American in the 200 Meters and Long Jump events with personal bests of 21.38 seconds in the 200 meters and 23 feet 6 inches in the long jump. I love working with athletes of all sports as I have been around sports nearly all of my life and have also excelled at a high level in football where I was the division 3 state leader in touchdown receptions my senior year and was a third team All-State selection. 

I believe in looking at the big picture in life and not only do I focus on building physical strength but emotional and spiritual strength as well.  I hope that in training with me you will have a positive experience and take more than just strength and physical health gains out of our sessions.

Rick Angus

NASM-CPT, CYES, M.S., BCBA, LABA,

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.

Erin Antonino

CPT NASM

Hello! My name is Erin Antonino.

Growing up, I was always involved in competitive cheerleading from All-Star teams to cheering on a Co-Ed competition team at Westfield State University.

Being fascinated by how the human body works, I completed my Bachelor of Science degree in Movement Science with a concentration in Sports Medicine. Upon graduating, career opportunities arose utilizing my science background that allowed me to pursue a career in pharmacy.   Pharmacy made me appreciate the importance of keeping your body healthy. I realized so many people rely on medicine to essentially keep them alive on a daily basis when exercise and eating to fuel your body can do the same with many more benefits. I decided to follow my heart and true passions in life; a healthy body and a healthy mind.

Becoming a certified Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) was step one to a new career path. I am currently a Trainer/Instructor at Burnin’ By Ray in Boston, MA. I am looking forward to sharing my ever-growing passion, knowledge, and experience as a fitness professional.  My mission is to aid clients in achieving their personal fitness and wellbeing goals and to help them prepare for sustained healthy living.
