Shane's career in health and fitness started as many other fitness professionals' have, with off-season preparation for high school athletics. Preparation for football and outdoor track served as a springboard for future interest in strength and conditioning.  With his interest in athletics and working with athletes, it became clear to Shane that working in the health and fitness field was the right fit for him. After graduating from Dighton-Rehoboth Regional High-School, Shane attended Fitchburg State University, where he enrolled in the exercise and sports physiology program. While at Fitchburg State, Shane was on the football team and the spring track team, where he competed in the sprints and javelin.

Shane made the switch to rugby for his 3 years in Plymouth, and he continues to play today, with the Providence Men's Rugby Club.

A practicum with Waterville Valley Academy in the fall of 2013 helped solidify Shane's interest in strength and conditioning. At Waterville Valley, Shane worked as a strength and conditioning assistant with the Alpine ski team with a focus on the Burdenko Conditioning program. Shane's career in personal training started with another local training studio in Providence, RI, after he received his personal training certificate from the American College of Sports Medicine. Helping client work towards their goals in a one-on-one private setting was an exciting and rewarding challenge for Shane. Shane enjoys designing and implementing challenging and fun workouts for his clients. He strives to encourage client to push their limits, so they can reach levels they often do not expect to reach.

Shelley Maroney

Health and Fitness Coach

International Sports Sciences Association Certified Personal Trainer.  FRC Mobility Specialist. FRA The BioMechanics Method. Corrective Exercise Specialist.

Hello! My name is Shelley Maroney and I am a certified personal trainer specializing in mobility and corrective exercise.

I graduated from Bridgewater State University with a Bachelors degree in Physical Education with a concentration in Exercise Science. Sports have been the focal point in my life since the age of three when I put on skis for the first time and hit the slopes! Throughout my child hood I played numerous sports including tennis, martial arts, softball, volleyball and track. During college I took up biking and completed the 180 mile bike trek in Maine for the American Lung Association. Then I became serious with long distance running and went on to run a marathon and half marathons.

I started personal training in college at a personal training studio in Hingham called Absolutely Fit. I became hooked and knew I had chosen the right field of study! I then went on to train in corporate settings as well as the YMCA where I taught Boot camp, TRX, P90x and individual/small group personal training. I also taught a kids triathlon team to compete at Brown University as well as run the LiveStrong program for cancer survivors. I also worked in an all woman's gym in Dighton called Boom where I taught HIIT classes and Strength and Conditioning.

Throughout my years of training all abilities I noticed a common theme among the general population and that was pain. Back pain, shoulder pain, and hip pain were common complaints from people walking through the gym doors. I grew tired of working around the pain and treating it as a limitation. I knew I could do better so I immersed myself in several courses that could help me better assess the pain and work through restrictions. Through Functional Range Conditioning certification, Functional Range Assesment certification and The Biomechancis Method Corrective Exercise certification I am able to assess the health of every joint as well as improve range of motion and build up the capacity of the tissue to decrease the chance of injury. Pain can be all consuming so there is no greater reward than when I am able to help clients decrease or resolve their pain. I am also certified in TRX, RIP trainer, LiveStrong, Kettlebells, P90x, and CPR. When I am not in a gym you can find me hiking, reading a book or training service dogs for Deaf and Disabled Americans through NEADs!

Brian Espinosa

Health and Fitness Coach

International Sports Science Association Certified Personal Trainer.  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.
