Personal Trainers

Mark Ferland – Fitness Director / Head Personal Trainer / Class Instructor/

What started as mere curiosity more than a decade ago quickly morphed into my greatest passion. As I learned more about the science of training, nutrition and how to improve body composition, my desire to impact the lives of others by sharing this knowledge led me to pursue a career as a personal trainer. I spent three years coaching and teaching weight training to sports teams at Spaulding High School before deciding that I really wanted to train clients one-on-one in a more personalized setting.

My main training philosophies are centered around strength training and core strengthening/conditioning. My belief is that by building a strong foundation you are building a life of physical and emotional wellness.

I specialize in weight lifting, fat loss, HIIT conditioning, bodybuilding routines and physique transformations. I feel every client has their own goals and desires and I believe in creating programs that are progressive and personally tailored to each individual client.

Trying to find a balance between everything life throws at you can be challenging. Sometimes this causes us to put our own health and wellness on the back burner. Even in my own life I struggle balancing my own fitness regimen with work, school, my awesome girlfriend and her two kids along with three very crazy cats. However, if you are willing to work hard, stay consistent and commit to at little “you time” I know you’ll be extremely excited by the results we can achieve together!

  • Strength training
  • Fat loss and weight management
  • HIIT conditioning
  • Nutritional advice
