Based on the consultation, the personal trainer can recommend the best personal training package and build an exercise program specifically designed for you to succeed.

Meet the Trainers
My name is Elise Greitzer and I am a freshman nursing major. I am accredited by the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) as a Certified Personal Trainer and have experience working with various forms of exercise. Just over two years ago I was diagnosed with ADHD, leaving me with a lack of confidence not only in my mental capabilities, but also in my physical appearance. I hated exercise and would have rather done almost anything other than go for an hour-long run. I was so fed up that I decided to work with a personal trainer who works with beginner strength training clients. A few months later, I found myself automatically walking into the gym to lift 6 days a week. Nowadays, the gym is my second home. I am confident in myself and my ADHD has dramatically improved through exercise. This is my exercise story and my goal as a personal trainer is to help clients find their own stories and their own unique love for physical activity. I look forward to seeing you at the gym!
I received my personal training certification from The International Sports Science Association (ISSA). I am currently a senior in the Kinesiology program here at URI. I enjoy working with different types of people in order to meet different personalities to prepare me best for whatever the future holds for me. The best feeling to me is seeing my clients healthy, fit, and most importantly happy with themselves after training with me. Fitness and wellness really does mean a lot to me and I am ecstatic to help anyone in the URI community!
My name is Domenic Angelino and I am a Junior double major in Kinesiology and Psychology. I am an ACE certified personal trainer. Growing up I had always been morbidly obese, but years ago I’d changed that and decided to move my life in a positive direction. I now enjoy sharing my passion for exercise science with others and doing everything possible to assist them in actualizing their goals. Whether it be to improve at their sport, lose fat, build muscle, get stronger, or even just live a healthier life, I’m always excited to help out. I now am very involved in an active live style engaging in MMA, Powerlifting, learning Ballroom dance, and have even founded a Fitness Club on campus!
My undergrad degree from Rhode Island College is in Health and Physical Education. I am a retired medical imaging director with an MBA in healthcare administration. As a senior citizen and an American College of Sports Medicine Certified Personal Trainer I have a firsthand perspective on the physical challenges associated with aging. I enjoy working out, running, boating and fishing. My wife, daughter and I live in Charlestown. We have a golden retriever named Cogswell and hound mix named Beany.
I am a sophomore Mechanical Engineer, going for a minor in philosophy. I am fascinated with mastering kinesthesia. To have complete kinesthesia is to have the sense of the body’s center of mass, position, its relationship between different joints, muscles, and tendons. It’s the gift of being fully aware of your body’s mobility, capability, and being completely comfortable moving through any situation with absence of fear. I competed in competitive all-star cheer-leading for three years. Jumping into this skill set later in life has shown me the importance of building a strong foundation before trying to stack a variety of skills on fragile equipment. I specialize in calisthenics (body weight movements), stability, endurance, kettle bells, and power movements. With a focus on building from the bottom to heights and goals only you can imagine and set for yourself. Let me help you reach your goals, while making sure your body stay quick, strong, and limber for the rest of your life. Everything is difficult before it is easy; the key is to just keep moving forward and to let go of past mistakes.
I’m a freshman here at URI majoring in kinesiology. I took a gap year and obtained my personal training certification from the WITS program this past year and have worked as a trainer at my local YMCA since then. I’ve worked in a one on one setting as well as group settings. I have taught multiple muscle conditioning class and regularly participate in yoga, Zumba, and spinning classes. As a result of being a lifelong gymnast, I have developed a love for being active. After coaching gymnastics for years, I have discovered a passion for helping others improve their health through physical activity.
I am a Senior Kinesiology major with aspirations of going to graduate school to further my education as a Physician’s Assistant. I am currently ISSA certified and make it my personal goal to help others reach their fitness goals by providing insightful knowledge on physical activity and demonstrating the proper steps towards a healthier lifestyle. I find myself to be incredibly open minded and intellectually well-rounded when it comes to different backgrounds of physical activity. I don’t just enjoy teaching others how to work out but I love meeting and learning more about others and forming close relationships with them as well. I am here to be more than just your trainer, but your friend, too. I look forward to any opportunity I get when it comes to increasing someone’s lifestyle and demonstrating positive ways to increase their well-being and I can’t wait to meet you!
