Nick Bennett

Studio Manager

Hello, my name is Nick Bennett and I am a Personal Trainer here at Fitness Together in Westford. I have been training clients for 15 years in both one-on-one and group settings. I graduated from the University of Massachusetts-Boston with a degree in Exercise Physiology I am certified through Fitness Resource Associates (FRA), CPR/AED through the American Red Cross and am currently pursuing my Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist certification.

I grew up in Lowell, MA where I participated in track and field in high school. All through out college I was very much into weightlifting and developed a passion for martial arts. I studied Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, which I now teach, and competed in a number of competitions. I later took up boxing, kickboxing and mixed martial arts. I have competed in mixed martial arts at a professional level as of recently and also help prepare other fighters and martial artists for competition.

Outside of the fitness world I enjoy fishing, hiking, camping, and being outdoors in general.

As a health and fitness professional I believe it is important to motivate and share my knowledge with others. I look forward to helping everyone on their journey to reach their fitness goals.
