In 2000, during Aaron’s freshman year at Endicott College he found himself becoming increasingly frustrated after putting on an extra twenty-five pounds. That’s when he decided to make a major lifestyle change. Aaron started spending more and more time at the gym, learning fun and challenging ways to improve his fitness. Aaron learned about and explored various training activities including strength and functional movement training, intense cardiovascular training, road biking, and sport-specific training. Not only did Aaron get himself in shape for everyday life, but he also prepared himself to play Defensive End on Endicott College’s first ever Varsity football team. Aaron's success in losing those extra twenty-five pounds, getting himself ready for the football field, re-shaping his body, and feeling healthier and more energized, all helped him realize this was the right career path for him.
After graduating from Endicott College in 2004 with a Bachelor of Science in Sports Management, Aaron worked as a personal trainer at several gyms, including the Beverly YMCA, Mad Maggie’s Health Club in Norwood, and the Boston Sports Club. Aaron soon became frustrated with training at these gyms because clients did not receive the one-on-one private attention they needed to attain their goals. Aaron then found Fitness Together. Aaron has been with the Fitness Together family since 2004, where he started off as a trainer at the Dedham location. In 2006, he was promoted to manager, and he realized in that role that his long-term goal was to own his own studio.
Aaron has been a certified personal trainer since 2001 through the International Sports Science Association (ISSA) and Fitness Together. He is also CPR/AED certified through the American Heart Association. Aaron believes that fitness is more than simply a number on the scale. His honest approach with his clients has helped numerous people reach and surpass their fitness goals over the years. Aaron believes that if you set aggressive goals and work hard to attain them, the results will speak for themselves.
