I was inspired to become a coach when I was in my mid 20’s and suffering from severe joint inflammation. I hired a personal trainer to help me get strong again and I never looked back. I’ve been coaching clients since 2005 and have worked out of my home, gyms, country clubs, clients’ homes, small studios, and chiropractor & physical therapy offices. No one place ever really fulfilled me or my ideas of an ideal training environment. That’s how Boutique Fitness emerged.
My two sports are rowing and running. New England summers are far too precious to not spend time on the water; and running during the winter in preparation for the New Bedford Half Marathon every year gives me the opportunity to appreciate the colder months too. The relationships I’ve built and the experiences I’ve had from running, rowing, and through Boutique Fitness have been an incredible gift.
