    Hello my name is Chris LaVeck. I currently am a resident of Baltimore, MD, which is where I grew up. I received my Exercise Science degree from Salisbury University in December 2016. My entire life growing up I played many sports which include soccer, basketball, lacrosse, and I ran track for some time in high school. Sports have been a big part of my life, as well as taking care of my body. I always had a passion for the trainers that took care of me while playing sports, and now I’d like to take what I learned and give it back to the clients that I train. I believe it is important to take care of your body and creating a positive lifestyle. Maintaining fitness should be a lot of fun and that’s what we make it!

    in my free time I like to
    In my free time, I like to spend time with my family, workout, watch the Orioles & Ravens (or any kind of baseball or football game), and surround myself with positive people to make sure I am living a positive and healthy lifestyle. I do like to watch movies, read books, and listen to podcasts in my spare time as well =)

    Hello! My name is Aidan Marshall-Cort. Born and raised in Maryland, I attended the University of Maryland, College Park studying Neurobiology and Physiology. As an individual who was born with a speech disorder, I’ve experienced the many hardships that come in life while trying to overcome a disability. As I experienced the wane of self-efficacy, I found confidence and humility through fitness. As I saw myself achieve the various goals that I set, I found the benefits affect other aspects of my life. I value empathy, transparency, and inclusion. I love to be challenged and learn different perspectives. I appreciate and value what you bring to me as I am always eager to learn. My goal is always to listen, understand, and provide the quintessential experience here for you at Fitness Together! I am excited to work with you and illuminate what you are capable of with the right amount of support and challenge!

    in my free time I like to
    I like to play chess, read books, listen to podcasts, exercise (strength training), and spend time with my baby brother!. Music is also a huge part of my life so I spend a lot of my time listening to or playing music (guitar and piano), attending concerts/shows, and discovering new artists!

    Hi! My name is Clark, and I am the owner of Fitness Together Silver Spring as well as the co-owner of Fitness Together in Gaithersburg.

Since then, our amazing team has been helping our clients achieve their goals and become the healthiest version of themselves. I am convinced that you will also enjoy your Fitness Together experience, regardless of your goals because I am not only a studio owner, I am a client myself!

    • Certified Personal Trainer - National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM)

    I was born and raised in the Washington, D.C. area and I graduated from Paint Branch High School of Science and Media where I was former state champion and Junior Olympic champion in Track and Field. I also attended the University of Maryland and UDC. Before becoming your guide, I worked in the hospitality and food service industry where I had the opportunity to work with great chefs and cook some of the best food for amazing people, including a former President, countless celebrities and great folks along the way! It was during this time that I rediscovered my love for fitness. I used it as a way to fight everyday stress and combat mental fatigue from the long hours working. Losing my father to cancer is what reignited my passion for health and fitness, and I made the choice to dedicate my life to the overall wellness of my fellow man. I will always make it my duty while we’re embarking on this new journey to be with you every step of the way. Cheers to life and our new adventure!

    in my free time I like to
    Play video games, spend time with my dog, cook a different meal on the weekends just to stay brushed up on my skills. I also like to meditate and just spread as much positive energy as I can!
