Our Personal Trainers

Emma

Emma

I am a fifth-year physical therapy major and I have been a trainer for three years. My favorite method to keep my clients motivated is to set goals. I believe the best part about being a personal trainer is helping my clients reach their goals and apply their training progress to sports and hobbies outside the gym. I find it very rewarding to work with my clients and support them as they push themselves in different aspects of fitness! When I’m not training, I enjoy cooking, skating, and exploring Boston.

I am a sixth-year physical therapy student from Cupertino, CA, and I have been a Personal Trainer at University Recreation for about four years now. What I enjoy the most about working in this position is being able to create meaningful relationships with all my clients! I feel that this connection enables me to motivate them to be the best version of themselves and tailor the exercise programs specifically to their needs and goals. I love training clients of all levels, ages, and backgrounds!

My favorite thing about being a personal trainer is being creative and finding new and fun ways to challenge my clients.

I am a fifth-year PT student, and this is my second year training! My favorite thing about personal training is making people happy and helping them feel good about themselves – I like to make sure everyone feels welcome and comfortable at the gym. For me, how I motivate clients depends on the person, but I believe that acknowledging gains as well as areas of improvement are equally as important!

I’m a 4th year Physical Therapy student at NEU! My hobbies include: producing music, nature walks, volleyball, and most recently, interior design! I’ve been training for a little less than a year and my favorite part is pushing my clients to their limits in a safe and educated way. Personally, I found that directly getting involved in the sessions has proved to be very motivational for my clients. Strength, cross, and circuit trainings are my specialties. Looking forward to growing more!

I am a second-year studying health sciences on the pre-PT track! I’ve been training clients for about a year now and I love being able to motivate others to stay active and care for themselves. I love to motivate my clients by tracking their progress so they can see how far they’ve come as it’s not always easy to recognize the small exciting changes on your own. During my free time, I love to lift, walk around Boston, and visit coffee shops.

Hi, I am a third year student from Westchester, NY. I am majoring in Psychology and am on the pre-physical therapy track.

Outside of training, I love playing and watching sports, especially soccer and basketball.

I am a health science major who loves to run, workout, read, crochet, and play with my dogs. I’ve been personal training for one year but have been working out nearly my whole life. I really love encouraging clients in similar positive reinforcement ways that worked for me as I grew up, especially when I had to learn how to workout after ending my soccer career. I especially love making working out a game or anything that gets the client to look forward to it everyday!

I am a third year biology major on a pre-med track. I’m a freshly certified trainer, eager to help anyone improve themselves and achieve greater health. I love being active, especially outdoors, which explains my love for running, hiking, and biking. I’ve been in the gym for 6 years and my favorite workouts incorporate functional body movements into high intensity circuits. As a member of the Men’s Club Ultimate Frisbee team, I stay active and encourage my teammates to engage in strengthening and cardiovascular fitness. I love to motivate others by finding common ground, setting goals, and expanding exercise repertoire through exploration of the endless possibilities of fitness!

I like to motivate people I train by finding areas of improvement and specifically targeting them and showing them the progress that they made.

Sophia

Sophia

Hi! I’m a second year physics major and this is going to be my first year getting to actually train. My favorite part of being a personal trainer so far is seeing clients do something they didn’t think they were going to be able to do. Watching them perform a movement correctly for the first time, or lift a weight that was beyond what they thought they’d be capable of is really amazing. I like to motivate clients to get to this point by setting goals, and more importantly talking about why those are their goals. I think if you have a longer term reason you want to be able to do something, you’re more likely to do it.
