Our Team

John Pecchia – Owner, Personal Trainer & Nutrition Coach

Born and raised in Southern Maine, I found my way down to the Boston area in 2013.  I have my B.S. in Applied Exercise Science, a MEd in Kinesiology and Physical Education, and have my personal trainer certification through NASM.  With over a decade of experience in the fitness industry, I started working at the Porter Square Get In Shape For Women as the Manager and Head Trainer in 2014.  Fast forward to 2017, I combined forces with a former member of this studio (and fellow Mainer), and we became the Co-Owners of this studio together.  After 3 amazing years together, I am now the sole owner of this studio and it makes me incredibly happy to continue doing what I love.   With my overly positive energy and a never-ending smile, I get the opportunity to provide my passion and expertise in the fitness field to this community each and every day. 

When I am not working in the studio, I can usually be found running up and down the Charles training for my next Marathon, hiking, or spending time with family and friends. 


Grace Marie – Personal Trainer & Nutrition Coach

Grace Marie is a Baker turned Fitness Coach hailing from Atlanta, Georgia.
Originally holding a certification in Baking and Pastry, Grace worked for 8 years as a full-time Baker in Atlanta and Boston. Along the way, she decided that instead of serving people through the food industry, she wanted to find a way to HELP people.

With a life-long interest in health and wellness, along with her own personal fitness journey, she was inspired to pursue a certification in personal training through NASM.  Grace is eager to help others achieve their health and fitness goals through functional and exciting programs. When she’s not training clients, Grace can be found Blues dancing, studying up to become a certified Nutrition Coach, and listening to copious amounts of her favorite K-pop group, BTS.
