Not sure what package is right for you? All URI Students, Rec, Fitwell, and Platinum members are eligible for a free personal training consultation.

The consultation is probably the most important part of getting the right personal trainer and exercise program. A certified personal trainer will go over your health history, time commitments, present and previous exercise routines as well as your personal goals and needs. 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.

You can stop by Mackal Rec Service Center or the Anna Fascitelli Welcome Center and fill out a personal training inquiry form or you can call Christina Savoie at 874-9202, to schedule a consultation.

Meet the Trainers:


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.



Majoring in kinesiology, I have 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 have one of the most amazing jobs, which is working with students and exercise participants of all ages on the university campus and community.  I have a MS from Southern Connecticut State University in Human Performance, a BS from the University of Connecticut in Exercise Science and a minor in Sports Nutrition. I’m also nationally certified as a personal trainer, group exercise instructor, American Red Cross Instructor, ACE certified stretch specialist, and Nautilus training certified. I am an adjunct Professor for the Kinesiology Department as well as provide lectures on campus and to the community in the area of Exercise Sociology. I have the unique privilege to be a part of the plan, design, construction and delivery of our new fitness and wellness center a 31,000 sq ft facility, that opened in Fall 2013.  My personal philosophy is “If there is a will there is a way, so don’t stop trying”.

The Fitness and Wellness Specialist at the University of Rhode Island and am a graduate of URI– GO RAMS! Very exciting to be back here on campus where my fitness career began. Prior to accepting this position, I have eight years training military personal in tactical, functional and physical performance at Naval Station Newport.
