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

Hi my name is Kevin Kochiss, and I am currently a senior here at URI in the Kinesiology program. I am an ISSA personal trainer and compete on the national stage as an NPC physique athlete. Over the past 2 years I have been helping high school students and athletes maximize their full potential in their sport, as well as teaching them how to live an active and healthy lifestyle. Fitness and health is a huge passion of mine and my goal with all my clients is to help them conquer and maintain their goals as well as tear down platues that they didn’t think were possible.

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!

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.
