  • Deanna Snow
    Summer 2010

    It has been fabulous! I actually came in with not a lot of expectations. I’ve been working out for a while, but I was a little nervous coming to a new place and having to change up my workout regimen, but it has exceeded, far exceeded my expectations. Just a great bunch of people here. I’ve been working with Lara and Matt and they are just so knowledgeable, just really, really know what they’re doing. So I am excited to go back home and show the results to all my friends back there.

    Fitness Together has helped me in many ways. They have helped me reach my goals and help me set new goals for me. They have helped me lose weight and become stronger, showing me ways to lead a healthier life. They make working out fun and enjoyable. Everyone that works at Fitness Together is friendly and very helpful, I could not have done it without them!

  • Emily K.
    May 2012 client of the month

    Before I got pregnant with my second child, my weight was in the 150's. My goal after having her was to get back to my pre pregnancy weight. Well I tried for three years to lose the weight. I tried all sorts of diets and exercise regiments but could not get back under 165 pounds. Then I got pregnant with my third child, after I had him, I decided that this time I was going to do whatever it takes to lose this weight. I wanted a personal trainer because I need accountability, someone to help me have good form, and to help me eat right. So I started looking on the internet to see what was in the area, and that is when I found Fitness Together. It sounded good on their website so I gave them a call and went in. After going in and meeting with Matt(the owner) and talking about what they do, I knew when I left that it was the right place for me. So I started working out in the small group personal training classes, 1 on 1 sessions, doing cardio, journaling and eating right. I started to see the weight come off. My son is now 9 months old and I'm down below my pre second child weight. I've lost 38 pounds and have taken off 33 inches since I started at Fitness Together and I have only 5 more pounds to go to get to my wedding day weight*!

    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!

  • Emily K
    Lost 4% body fat in 12 Weeks*

    Participating in sports throughout high school and the occasional pick-up game in college, I was always active but did not have experience in strength training.  While I felt as though I had the determination necessary to increase my fitness level, I knew I did not have the knowledge to get started.  Working with the Fitness Together trainers, I was introduced to various exercises to strengthen different parts of the body.  I was taught how to do those exercises with proper form as well as the appropriate weight to use.  Whether it was a one on one session with Kaj or a pack session with Thiago, the trainers did a great job of balancing pushing you to do your best to get through that last set and making you feel comfortable.


    At the end of the three months of training, I not only felt great, but I could see the results that I had worked hard for.  Even though I was unable to continue with training due to work commitments, all of the trainers mentioned that I could call them if I ever had any questions about training, nutrition, workout programs, etc.  Everyone was so helpful and it is evident that they are truly dedicated to their clients as they are willing to go above and beyond to help you reach your goals.  As a result of my experience, working out became fun and something that I still look forward to everyday.  Thank you Fitness Together!


  • 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!

  • Emily Sack
    Client Since May 2006

    After I entered my 40's, I noticed the pounds creeping up on me. Even more important though, I had never felt in really good shape. I joined Fitness Together in May 2006, and I’ve never looked back!  When I first started, I could not do a push-up, and I was resigned to settling into middle age with a “muffin top” around my stomach – since then, I have gained strength and lost inches. I feel much better about the way I look, but what I hadn’t realized was how much confidence I would gain!  For the first time in many years, I got back on a bike, and ended up taking a cycling trip in Canada last summer. I enjoyed it so much that I’m planning another cycling and hiking vacation this summer.

    All the trainers at Fitness Together have worked with me on strength, cardio, and endurance, as well as balance. In the past, when I had occasionally tried out a trainer at a gym, I had always felt intimidated. What I love about the Fitness Together trainers is that they are challenging, but very attuned to your level, and flexible so that they can address your priorities. They really focus on each client individually and constantly adjust your program so that it is always challenging and never boring! They are knowledgeable and serious about what they do, but they are also a lot of fun, and they know how to motivate.  

    I want to thank Fitness Together in Barrington for making a huge difference in the way I think about my abilities. If Matt has his way, I may even be training for a half-marathon in the not too distant future!

  • Ann C.

    I began my journey at Fitness Together in February 2009. I have never been a big fan of exercise and was the typical yo-yo dieter for most of my life.  Approaching an all time high in my weight, high blood pressure, issues with my knees and lack of energy, I had reached the point in my life where I knew I had to make a change.  Being in my late 40's and going to a commercial gym, was not something I was looking forward to.  A friend suggested I look into Fitness Together. After meeting the personal trainers, I knew this was the place for me to begin my transition.

    All of the trainers take a personal interest in you and your progression throughout. Each session begins with them asking "how you are feeling" to ensure there are no issues with aching muscles or unexpected pain from the previous session. If there are, they will help you through it with additional stretches or recommendations of how best to handle the situation. Their encouragement and constant changes to your exercise routine avoid boredom and make each session more interesting and challenging. Their program includes sound nutritional advice which helps to avoid hunger and gives me more energy throughout the day.

    Thanks to the team at Fitness Together. I have lost 40 pounds and 27 inches overall*. I have dropped two sizes and I am in the best physical and mental shape that I have ever been in my life! Sixteen months later I continue to exercise on a regular basis at Fitness Together and continue to receive compliments on how great I look!

  • 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.

  • Kevin L.


    I feel like a different person. The trainers would ask me if I felt ok and how my week was before every class, making me feel very comfortable. They would also work with me after my pack workout if I was having a problem with something. True professionals from the owner and through the staff. They worked with me on everything from my diet to working out and everything in between. One of the best decisions I ever made!

  • 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

    Young and enthusiastic, Zac Swanton has quickly learned that as a personal trainer, you have the opportunity to relate to all types of people, instilling in them a new and positive attitude toward exercise. “I hope to help my clients lead a healthy lifestyle, and help them exceed their expectations of how much they can accomplish with a great workout.”

    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.”

    A graduate of the University of Rhode Island with a degree in Kinesiology, Allison started working at Fitness Together as an intern, becoming full time in 2010. Allison is the Head Coach for the varsity girls Barrington High School hockey team.

    Passion about your work: “Everyday I get to wake-up and help clients reach their goals and push them farther than they thought they could go.”

    I tell my clients: “Attitude is everything. It’s harder to break a positive attitude than to fix one that is already broken… being uncomfortable with change is temporary, results are forever small or large; so why choose failure when success is an option."
