  Success Stories
  • Eileen Biancuzzo
    Client Since January 2007

    As an active woman, I walk everyday and pride myself on eating healthy.  However, after many years of the same exercise routine, I found that I was no longer seeing results.  When I heard of Fitness Together and their motto of “1 Client – 1 Trainer – 1 Goal” it seemed like the answer to my exercise rut.  My trainers,  give me different exercises each session, which has helped me build upper body strength and whittle away inches from my midsection*– two things that proved impossible to do with walking alone.  Since I began training with them, I have seen improvements in many areas of my life.  First and foremost, I have noticed incredible changes in my health.   My blood pressure and cholesterol, which both were a little high when I started at FT, are now within normal range.*  Also, after a year and a half of training, my core is noticeably stronger.  I credit FT for the progress I have made.  They are hardworking, dedicated, incredibly encouraging and supportive and truly care about me reaching my fitness goals!  The one-on-one training I receive at Fitness Together has remarkably improved my life and is something that I will continue indefinitely.

  • Tom H.

    Fitness Together has helped me to lose weight as well as improve my strength, flexibility and stamina. I have been able to climb Mt. Washington with my children as well as lower my golf score. They personalize your workouts and work with you to achieve your goals. I would strongly encourage you to give them a try!

  • Becky Bishop
    Client Since September 2009

    The crew at FT are helping me achieve my goals by developing workout plans that push me but do not exacerbate any of my existing conditions. They have also given me the guidance necessary to change my diet habits. The nutritional program has been a huge help. The greatest area of improvement for me since I started at is the increase in my strength and endurance. The loss of weight and inches* has been a great bonus but for me the greatest benefit is that I feel younger than I did several months ago.

  • Anne M

    Fitness Together made a big change in my life.  First by teaching me to improve my diet and eat healthier(mom taught me the right way, I just didn't listen).  Through there monitoring and support they encouraged me to continue.

    The best part is the personalized workouts which have improved my strength and endurance, as well as my balance.  My daily task are now easier to accomplish.

    Unable to accomplish results by myself, I invested in Fitness Together for there help. With my trainers dedication, support and enthusiasm I have made great progress towards my end goal. I have lost 61 pounds* since being here!

  • Mike A

    Fitness Together has helped me in many ways. They have helped me reach my goals and help me set new goals for me.

Everyone that works at Fitness Together is friendly and very helpful, I could not have done it without them!

  • Before


    Sherry Olson
    Client Since April 2008

    One of the best decisions I made in my life was joining Fitness Together! I still remember the first time I spoke with Matt and Lara. They were so supportive and gave me the confidence to believe in myself because they believed in me. They took the time to understand me and the challenges I had with weight loss. Matt and Lara took the time to get to know me. They follow up with me with emails or phone calls to make sure I stay on track. Lara is always looking for ways to support me with nutrition as well as fitness. Lara, Allison and Erskine make sure they push me to get the most of my workouts and I THANK YOU!  I have so many things to thank Fitness Together for, but what means the most to me is that they have treated me life family.  I have lost 125lbs and over 78 inches.*

    If it wasn't for my Fitness Together family, I wouldn't be the person I am today. There are no words to describe what they did for me. They changed my life forever. They are an inspiration to me and because of my FT family, I pay it forward by sharing the knowledge and support they have given me on my weight loss journey to other people who need someone to believe in them the way they believed in me!


  • Evan Cloutier
    October 2010

    Words cannot express how amazing Fitness Together has been throughout my weight loss and physical training.* I am amazed at the level of professionalism with the staff. They have been there 110% of the way. Incredible! Thank you so much!

  • Mike Merolla
    Client Since December 2008

    FT has changed my attitude about exercise. I started late in 2008. I was about 15 pounds over weight, lacked strength and stamina and was dealing with restricted flexibility due to arthritic hips. FT put together programs that improved all of these things*. The trainers are excellent and the atmosphere is fun. They have become my friends as much as they are my trainers. Having scheduled appointments means I stick to the program, something I never did when I belonged to a regular gym.

  • Chris Miga
    Client Since November 2010

    As I headed towards the big 6-0 my health became a motivating factor. All the aches and pains were a sign that I needed to take this seriously. Now I ache for different and better reasons. The one client, one trainer concept really sets FT apart from all the other gyms and exercise fads I’ve tried. Accountability and no excuses have kept me on track. I have a greater confidence and inner strength to be able to handle all the crazy incidences that occur in daily life. I also look better and feel great! The one thing I now have is hope. I know FT is a place I can go where all the trainers care about me and share in all my success, whether they are big or small. Their encouragement has kept me going towards my weight loss and fitness goals and I am confident that together we will achieve them.

  • Bruce W.
    Client since 2008

    I have been going to Fitness Together for 6 years. During that time I have managed to average 3 times a week. Knowing your trainer is there waiting for you is great motivation. If it was not for my trainer being there it would have been easy to make excuses not to go.  When you are committed to a goal you have someone to push you to achieve it. Every year I go skiing in February my trainer helps me prepare with a customized workout.  At 58 years old I've lost almost 30 pounds* and I am in better physical shape than ever before.  It made my skiing experience that much better. The trainer makes going to the gym fun.  I have several new friends due to my going to fitness together even trainers that have moved on to different employment opportunities are still some good friends.  The Fitness Together experience has been a great addition to my workout routine.  I wouldn’t do it any other way!

    Thanks to my trainer you are great!

  • Steve Lombari, ASCM, TRX
    Personal Trainer

    Steve Lombari easily relates to the clients he trains. Battling weight issues earlier in his life, he overcame them with a change of lifestyle, exercise and now a commitment to help others. “I’ve been through it,” says the 46-year- old father of two, who weighed upwards of 300 pounds when he graduated from high school. “When I was 19 or 20, a trainer smartened me up, and in two years I dropped 110 to 120 pounds.”

    He’s never turned back, and has been active physically since his weight loss, participating in tough mudders, playing basketball, and at one point working as a cardio boxing instructor.

    For years he worked several jobs, from banking to landscape, and even as a bouncer. He’s played in a country band and worked as a disc jockey, something he continues to pursue. But gnawing at him for years was his desire to become a personal trainer. He began with home study and graduated from MTTI’s personal training program in 2016. Part of the program was a requirement for an internship, and that brought Steve to Fitness Together’s Barrington studio.

  • Zac Swanton, NPTI, NASM - Fitness/Nutrition Specialist
    Cardio Together Director, Personal Trainer

    A resident of North Smithfield, Zac has a diploma in personal training from the National Personal Training Institute, with a concentration on functional training, strength and balance training.

    He is the director and head coach of the FT Cardio Together program. Before coming to Fitness Together he worked as the lead dental prep technician at Precision Craft Dental Lab and as an assistant school aged teacher at Dr. Daycare. “I came to Fitness Together because I have a strong desire to be a part of a professional training team, and also for learning and increasing my personal training,” Zac says.

    Personal training has allowed him to use his talents to conquer considerable challenges, and the satisfaction of putting someone in jeopardy on the right path. “My biggest challenge was training a client that was 500 pounds,” Zac says. “I was challenged to understand and work with him to completely change his eating habits. The success was this client losing 40 lbs in 4 months and also seeing him slowly change his lifestyle and not depend on the latest fad or even surgery." Zac is passionate about the connection nutrition has with physical performance.

    Like this client, he says, he wants all his clients to “start their goals with a positive mindset, recognizing that a personal trainer is the key to success.”
