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 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 name is Amy St. Amand and I am a fourth year pharmacy student. I am an ISSA Certified Personal Trainer. Over the past three years, I have lost and kept off 85 lbs, so I know the transformative power of exercise. These days, nothing brings me more joy than helping others feel great about their health and fitness. I also teach group exercise classes at URI and have a love for cycling, kickboxing, and yoga. I look forward to helping you reach your goals and achieve optimal health and wellness.

Hi! I’m Peter and I am a NABF personal trainer. I am a full time student at the University of Rhode Island majoring in Kinesiology. I am in my sophomore year and I am excited for everything to come! After competing in my first bodybuilding show this past summer, I truly want to help others the best I can to reach their fitness goals in a healthful way!


I received my personal training certification from The International Sports Science Association (ISSA). I am currently a junior 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!

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”.

I recently accepted the position of 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. Three years working with high school students and coaches as well as college and adult athletes to improve their core strength, injury prevention, sports performance and overall health. My training philosophy is to build strength from the inside out to achieve sport and fitness goals at any stage of life.  ACE certified Personal Trainer, ACE Advanced Health and Fitness Specialist, TRX® Group Certified, Kettle Bell Concepts Level 1 Instructor and Insanity® Certified.
