    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 Noah Leavy, and I’m here to help you achieve your goals - no matter what they are. I am a Silver Spring native, and graduate of The Field School in Northwest Washington, D.C., where I ran Track and Cross Country for 3 years. I gained my Personal Training certification in 2018, and am passionate about fitness and helping others. In 2016 I suffered an injury that resulted in two shoulder slings and a surgery. This taught me how important activity is to one’s quality of life. After that period, a strict but reasonable gym routine allowed me to rebuild my body and my life. I believe that fitness is all about helping people improve their quality of life, and I look forward to helping you!

    in my free time I like to
    Stay active, or rest up and read a little bit - depending on what my body needs that day! I also love to draw, and write during my free time. I enjoy stuffy podcasts about history and philosophy, as well as ones about music and comedy. Earlier, when I referred to reading, I really meant listening to audiobooks, but that still counts, right? I also enjoy the Green Apple flavor of Gatorade, which is underrated, going on runs to clear my head, and listening to records. I look forward to working with you!

    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!

    • 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!

    Hello and thank you for reading! My name is Clark and I am the studio owner. My Fitness Together journey started working with Fitness Together in 2014 as a coach in the Alexandria, VA studio. In 2015 I moved up into a manager position, where I was able to implement processes that helped both my team and my clients grow and reach their goals. In 2020, I became a client of my own studio after suffering a herniated disc in my neck from an injury at home. I was experiencing excruciating pain in my neck, right shoulder and my entire right arm initially and had lost 95% of strength in my right arm - the nerve was impacted so hard that surgery was a very real possibility. However, once I received an initial round of physical therapy I trained with my team regularly, and with their help, I was able to completely restore strength without surgery! I am a complete believer that what we have to offer will bring a healthier, better quality of life to you - because I've experienced it myself! =)

    in my free time I like to
    When not training, you can usually find me working on something in the garage or on the race track! Cars, motorcycles, engine building are my passion - if it's got wheels and goes fast, it usually has my name on it =)

    Hi, my name is Richard Szutenbach. I started my fitness journey when I served in the military. I served in the military for 8 years where I helped train soldiers in physical activity as a team leader. During the end of my term serving I earned my bachelors degree in environmental science at American Military University. After struggling with my own stresses and health issues I decided to get certified as a personal trainer. I also continued my education and completed half of my master's degree in sports and health science at American Public University. I decided to change my major of study, as I thought I would be able to better serve others with my skills in fitness and nutrition. My ultimate goal is that I want to help others live a healthier lifestyle, and I want to help others overcome their struggles in fitness and nutrition. I look forward to working with you and helping you get to your ultimate goals! Let's get started!

    in my free time I like to
    In my free time I love to hike and run at the local park trails. I also love spending time with my family.
