We realize you have many choices available when it comes to fitness and we’d like to take the time to thank you for researching your next level of success. We take your health very seriously, as should you. We appreciate you trusting us with this important responsibility.

Having been involved in the Fitness Industry for over 25 years, I became increasingly frustrated at its poor standards. Quite simply, I became sick and tired of clubs where sales numbers were more important than member results. Personal training standards were ridiculously poor and good training programs and qualified instruction were almost impossible to find. I set out to create the solution. And I truly believe I did!

In 2009, we became the first Adult Training gym in Western MA. We have an incredibly knowledgeable and energized team of coaches, research-based training methods and a clean, no fluff training facility. You won’t find a more qualified or more highly-trained fitness training team anywhere. We also offer lifestyle enhancement programs based on improving the activities in your life such as Golfing, Biking, Obstacle Course Racing, distance running or any of the other sports you might participate in. From the pro’s to everyday Joes, middle and high school athletes, elite level players, we can get you there you need be. If you just want to finally look move and feel better, you landed in the right place.

Recovering from an injury?? We are the only physician and physical therapist backed Return – To – Play program in the region. ACL, knee or hip replacement? Sprained ankle, sore back? Whatever your setback might have been. You can trust my team to get you back to full strength.

What truly sets us apart from other gyms is that we are the only fitness facility in the area you can experience before you make a commitment. You can come in and meet with one of our team coaches, become a member for 21 days (21 DAY JUMPSTART), and see if our gym is for you without any commitment. More importantly, we are the only fitness facility whose sole focus is not on membership numbers ? but on our members’ results. We want to positively IMPACT our members, our community and inspire others to greatness.

We don’t have salespeople…come meet our qualified team of coaches and decide for yourself. If we can’t earn your trust during your introductory program and prove to you that we’re the best gym in Western MA, walk away with no obligation whatsoever. It really is that simple!

What brought me to Conca Sport and Fitness is the atmosphere, a place where people want to be, a place where people support others, a place where everyone can achieve their own personal goals.

I started out as an intern for Conca, where I was completing my senior year placement for my Exercise Science degree from Springfield College. I was able to grow as a coach and a person with the support of the coaching staff and the members. Everyone welcomed me with open arms and I’ve been here since.

What drives me as a coach is helping others achieve their goals. Whether that’s the athlete’s sessions, adult groups, or personal training.

At Conca Sport and Fitness I enjoy being around the high school and middle school athletes because watching them grow in confidence, strength, speed, and power is very motivating. Young people need strong role models and I’m grateful for the opportunity to be there for them from season to season. I also love spending time with the adults, watching them transform their minds and bodies is amazing to see.

Currently, I am back at school to get my Masters in Athletic Training. My goal is to use the knowledge and experience I have learned from Conca Sport and Fitness to continue to help others.

I work for UnitedHealthcare as a Financial Audit Exam Lead, which is where my work passion resides. My passionate side hustle was becoming a Coach at CSF with the Master’s program. I personally hope to get as fit as possible, and also empower others that fitness is more than muscles, it raises self-esteem and opens avenues that you never thought were possible.

As a single Mom, I’m very proud to have raised a strong, compassionate, and Caring daughter who is currently a Pediatric RN.n More recently I’ve realized age is only a number and we all get to a point where it’s “ME” time, so I’m pushing my limits on what I can achieve in life personally. “Unstoppable” is my thought process as we only get one life to live – I had no idea how much the CSF gym/family would impact my life.

Currently, I’m enrolled in becoming a Certified Functional Strength Coach.
