Aaron Atwood

Aaron Atwood

Owner

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.

Ian Lane

Ian Lane

FT Health and Fitness Coach

Ian has lived and studied in New England for most of his life, where he was a competitive gymnast and martial artist growing up. As an athlete with a passion for health and wellness, Ian was certified as a personal trainer shortly after graduating high school, and has maintained various national certifications ever since, never losing his drive to help people achieve their goals, one-on- one. In 2012, he moved to Los Angeles, California, where he started and operated a personal training and nutrition consultation firm at 24, and then wrote and published a 400 page book on the science of fat loss in the obese population. He ran this company for approximately three years, before returning to the east coast to finish his education. 

Ian is an experienced strength and performance coach, certified by the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM), and a sports nutritionist with the International Society for Sports Nutrition (ISSN). He has been an active member of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and the Nutrition and Metabolism Society for the last five years, and has been heavily involved in the fitness industry for 11 years. In college, he studied pre-medicine and psychology, where he graduated summa cum laude. In the fall, he will be starting a masters of public health (MPH) degree program, where he will study epidemiology and biostatistics.

Ultimately, Ian is striving to achieve a Ph.D. in quantitative health sciences, where he would like to research the impact of strength and conditioning on chronic disease prevention and health maintenance in a more rigorous manner than is currently being done, and then apply those data in the practical, one-on-one setting in the studio. When he’s not training and analyzing sports science data, Ian does a lot of writing, hiking and still dabbles with gymnastics.
