    I am here to help you achieve your goals and have fun while you are doing it! I spent the early part of my professional career as an athletic trainer for high schools and various semi-pro sports teams. Since the year 2000 I have been working with clients one on one to achieve their fitness and life goals. I have extensive experience working with young children, elite athletes and the elderly achieve these goals. I have learned first hand what kind of impact fitness can have on your life, having lost over 70lbs of “baby fat” myself. From being able to run faster or jump higher, just get out of bed without pain in the morning, or increasing your overall health. I want you to feel comfortable with my experience and facility’s intimate design.

    in my free time I like to
    Hangout with my wife and our Boston Terrier Khaleesi-Rey. I also have a passion for golf and cycling.

    I graduated from UMASS Lowell as a Magna Cum Laude with a BS in Exercise Physiology. Post graduation, I worked for the YMCA as a Health Director.

    People ask me how and why I “ended” up as a Fitness and Nutrition coach/yoga instructor. My response is always the same…. Due to severe low back injuries, if I don’t have fitness in my life I would be in pain. After years of rehabilitating my own injuries and seeing how significantly my life had changed, I decided that I wanted to share with other people what I had learned. My extensive knowledge of anatomy and body mechanics allows me to help clients achieve their fitness goals regardless of any physical limitations. Staying physically fit is a passion of mine, which enables me to motivate others while keeping it fun.

    in my free time I like to
    In my free time, I like to run, spend time with my husband and friends as well as various crafts.

    I went to school at the University of Southern Maine and received my BS in Exercise Science in 2017. I became a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist shortly after and began to revel in the idea that I could educate people in an industry with so much misinformation. My goal is to usher you through your health and wellness journey safely and with purpose.

    in my free time I like to
    Outside of work I am my best in nature. In the spring, summer, and fall, I like to hike the beautiful white mountains. In the winter I still find my peace in the mountains but with a snowboard instead of a backpack. More minorly, I spend some time golfing and rock climbing. Mostly, I spend my time cooking and playing with my dog Tessie.

    • Red Cross First Aid, CPR, AED L1

    I achieved my Bachelor of Science from Salem State University and have worked as a personal trainer and coach since 2012.  As a personal trainer I have helped people lose weight, get back into shape after a hiatus, and aided in their return from injury.  As a running coach, I have guided people to qualify for the Boston Marathon, lead divisional champions to multiple year titles, coached athletes to the national spotlight and made sure they did so safely, effectively, and while taking precautions to prevent injury. I believe everyone deserves the opportunity to feel their best and through a well coordinated plan people can achieve that feeling.  I will work to identify areas that need improvement in people’s movement that are causing them pain or holding them back from being a better version of themselves. My hope is to bring all of my knowledge and experience to all of our FT clients!

    As an athlete growing up I spent much of the year training for sports such as football, wrestling and track/field which helped me stay active and fit. It wasn’t until I stopped playing sports my sophomore year of college that I realized that I didn’t understand how to ACTUALLY workout by myself as I always had a workout program pre-written for me. This inspired me to understand the science that went behind exercise and fitness. I graduated from Mount Wachusett Community College and Fitchburg State University earning an Associates of Science in Allied Health and a Bachelors of Science in Exercise Science. I had my start in the health and fitness field in Cardiac Rehab as an Exercise Physiologist, but I’ve worked in a variety of settings including Group, Senior, and Corporate Fitness. Above all I enjoy seeing how exercise can change peoples lives no matter their age. My goal is to help you get started on the right track or continue your lifelong fitness journey.

    in my free time I like to
    play guitar, cook, and learn about history. I also enjoy spending a lot of time outdoors with my wife and seeing my friends/family.
