In an ideal world we’d all have jobs that paid us well for doing what we love and what we’re good at and we’d get to be surrounded by our favorite people most, if not all the time. We’d go to work every day knowing that our chosen profession is having a positive impact on each and every one of our clients and the community as a whole. In an ideal world, this is what we’d all have. As many Fitness Together owners will tell you from experience, this is a pretty good way to make a living.
Meet Jerry and Teris Espinosa. Lifelong athletes and fitness enthusiasts, the couple have enjoyed lending their expertise and passion for fitness to their clients as owners of Fitness Together in Jerry’s hometown of North Attleboro, MA since 2008.
With a range of certifications from personal and group training to AED and CPR, the couple has a combined 50 years of experience in every possible aspect of the professional fitness field, from coaching high school sports, to teaching group classes to managing national health club chains and of course, one on one and small group training.
“Jerry and Teris are exceptional owners in the Fitness Together system,” says Benjie Moser, Northeast regional director of Fitness Together, Inc. “They have shown their excellence over the last four years with their North Attleboro location.”
So when Jerry and Teris had the opportunity to take over the Fitness Together studio in Franklin, they gave it serious thought. When Jerry’s brother Michael, also a life long competitive athlete, fitness enthusiast and former health club executive, agreed to come on board, they knew they had a winning proposition.
Jerry and Teris will continue to run their studio in North Attleboro with the same degree of excellence they’ve brought for the past four years, but they see this as an opportunity to better serve the communities around both studios.
“We will be building off of our model of 1 on 1 and Personalized Small Group Training, while carrying over Franklin’s existing best practices in raising the bar in 1 on 1 and Small Group Functional Training in the area,” says Jerry. “This, combined with Nutrition Together and Cardio Together, will provide the Complete Wellness Solution.”
As for Teris, she is thrilled to have the chance to impact an even broader sampling of the area population. “It has always been our dream to help transform people’s lives through proper nutrition and exercise. It is exciting to see someone’s life change for the better when they are able to move easier and have more energy. “
Benjie Moser, who attended the opening celebration at the Franklin Fitness Together studio on Tuesday, March 27 was impressed by the Espinosa’s commitment to fitness and their connection with the community. “The town of Franklin should be very excited to have such passionate owners as their fitness leaders. We also welcome, Michael Espinosa as manager and co-owner of this location!”
We wish the Espinosas well as they begin this next exciting chapter of their Fitness Together careers. If you’re in North Attleboro or Franklin, be sure to stop in and say ‘hi’!
