    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 pride myself on teaching clients the tools necessary for getting control of their health again. I look forward to helping our clients on their fitness journey.

    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.

    I am a wife, and a Mom of two boys and a dog named Luna. Health and fitness has always been a big part of my life. I have worked both in and out of the fitness industry for a lot of my life. In 2015 I joined Fitness Together as a client, at that time I was struggling with an autoimmune disease that was affecting my everyday living and my ability to exercise without pain. Thanks to the guidance of Tom Lavoie, and his team at Fitness Together, I am able to exercise without pain. It was that experience, coupled with my love for coaching and supporting others that inspired me to learn more about the health and fitness industry and explore it as a career. As the client experience director, I am here to help you with your fitness journey. I look forward to assisting with scheduling, answering questions, working on special projects, and helping to build a strong Fitness Together community.

    As a dancer for 17 years I learned early on about the clarity and calmness movement provided me. While I liked performing, I found the most enjoyment in the constant journey of learning, struggling, practicing and perfecting. After transitioning away from dance due to various injuries, I discovered I could feel the same joy and mental clarity through exercise as well. My goal is to create a safe and supportive environment in which people can achieve their goals, celebrate showing up for themselves, and find the small joys and motivators within their journey. Outside of Fitness Together, I am a stage manager for Boston Ballet and feel incredibly lucky that in both places I get to spend my time with people striving to be the best versions of themselves.

    Fitness has always been important to me. Going on 12 years of track and field under my belt from middle school to the Division I collegiate level, I’ve learned that fitness is more than being in shape. Graduating from Umass Lowell with a Bachelors in Exercise Science, minor in Psychology, and certificate in Public Health, I’ve learned along the years that exercise can contribute to stress relief and healing. By experiencing this on my own, I’ve grown the desire to not only make myself feel good through fitness, but others as well. One of my top goals I strive for daily is bringing a new definition to fitness and making it as fun and educational as it was for me, and still is. I don’t see myself straying away from this path anytime soon, especially now having the chance to directly contribute to changing lives for the better.

    in my free time I like to
    Lift weights, run, be outdoors, spend time with friends and family, listen to music, cosmetic beauty

    As an introvert, I understand the awkwardness and fears that come with working out. I always strive to ensure a safe and comfortable environment to train in that only builds your confidence and self-esteem in all of my sessions. Although I can be shy at first, I am enthusiastic and have nothing but positivity to share. Being a dancer myself, you will probably see me moving and grooving throughout the space, no matter what music is on, so feel free to join me too.

    in my free time I like to
    Dance (freestyle/improvisation), watch TV, play video games, listen to music, and work on my car.

    I have spent most of my strength and conditioning experience in the tactical setting. Working with soldiers from the Army as well as some Special Operations, I had the opportunity to run daily physical training sessions with up to 150 soldiers for the better part of three years. During my time with athletes with such high physical demand, I gained valuable experience working around injuries and restrictions while still providing useful and efficient training. After witnessing and experiencing injuries that restricted movement and quality of life, I really embraced the idea of function first. I want to teach you not only how to get strong and move well in the gym, but also how to help translate those valuable skills to the real world to help you enjoy the other twenty-three hours in your day.

    in my free time I like to
    I love being outdoors, preferably in the mountains. Whether it be hiking, camping, paddleboarding, snowshoeing, or snowboarding, you can count me in! Other than that, I like to read, walk and play with my dog Teddy, and spend time with family and friends.
