Jordan gile

Personal Trainer

ACE CPT 

Fitness has always been a part of me. Being in the industry has transformed my life and I am passionate about helping others find the same spark. The spark started for me from playing volleyball, track, and lacrosse growing up and being a competitive cheerleader for 11 years. I turned this passion into creating a fitness page for my friends and family to follow along on my journey. I soon turned this passion into a career and got my Personal Training Certification through ACE. I also hold a Bachelors of Science Degree in Psychology and have been working in the mental health industry as a social worker for 3 years. I understand the struggle and how to get my clients in the right headspace to enjoy working out. With my experience in the mental health industry I enjoy helping people discover their spark and break any barriers they have towards working out. I enjoy showing people the balance between intensity and enjoyment. My journey is unique and has exposed me to many different aspects and approaches to fitness.  Let me help you break any barriers or negative thoughts towards working out. Be stronger than your strongest excuse. Be greater than your most negative voice.

Personal Trainer

ACE CPT / Fitness & Sports Nutrition / Functional Training Coach / Group Exercise / Club Pilates 

I’m Nicole Boniface and have been working in the Fitness Industry for six years.

I enjoy helping clients achieve their goals by incorporating fitness, nutrition and recovery. 

I am a fitness enthusiast! I’m all about balance and just getting the body moving. “An object in motion will stay in motion!” It’s important to me to make movement a movement and to have fun with training. While exercising I like to keep in mind how grateful I feel that my body is able to move. I love to get out and play! I love helping others discover this and watch them grow mentally and physically through the process.

Alyssa Camara

Personal Trainer
BS, Athletic Training / NASM CPT / 500 + Clinical Hours in therapeutic exercise and modalities / Head/Assistant Basketball Coach 

Growing up integrated in a variety of sports and training year round, I have always felt “at home” while moving and exercising. Fascinated with movement, accompanied by a very deep appreciation for the human body, I attended Westfield State University and completed my undergraduate degree with a Bachelors of Science in Athletic Training. Throughout my college career I had the opportunity to complete over 500+ clinical hours under direct supervision of a Certified Athletic Trainer and Sports Medicine Professionals. Here, I had hands-on experience and learned the positive effects consistent treatment and training had on our bodies. I also had the opportunity to be a 4 year member on the Westfield State Women’s Basketball Team. It was essential to establish healthy habits, training programs, and consistency. Health and wellness has been at the core of my being for years, being involved in athletics in college only highlighted the importance of my own health journey.  After completing my first Boston Marathon in April of 2023, I realized much more than achieving the end result, but a true trust in the process of training. This led me to teach, guide, and inspire others within their own fitness journey. From here I received my Personal Training Certification from NASM and hit the ground running. My main training philosophy starts with creating strong building blocks for you to carry forth into our individualized training program. Goal setting, balance, mindset, and consistency is at the heart of my training. My experience in the sports medicine clinical setting has educated me on a variety of exercise techniques for return to play protocols, sport specific training, and recovering from everyday setbacks. Taking the first step may be difficult, but as you commit to your uniquely designed program and trust your own health journey, you will find yourself on the other side of fear. I hope to see you soon!
