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.
