We are thrilled to welcome Marissa to the Prototype Training Systems team! With an impressive background in health, fitness, and wellness, Marissa brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our gym community.

About Marissa:

Marissa holds a Bachelor’s in Health Science and a Master’s in Public Health from Boston University. Her passion for fitness and health is further backed by her certifications as a NASM-certified personal trainer, with additional specializations in Nutrition and Health coaching.

From a young age, Marissa’s life has been intertwined with movement. She danced competitively throughout high school and continued her dance journey with BU’s Dance Theater Group in college. After college, Marissa’s love for movement evolved as she took on new challenges as an aerialist and runner. To date, she has completed 14 half marathons and 3 marathons, with an inspiring goal to run a half marathon in every state. She is currently training for the 2024 NYC marathon.

Marissa’s passion for fitness extends beyond her personal achievements. For the past decade, she has been dedicated to teaching dance to youth ages 2-18. Additionally, she has made her mark as a ninja warrior coach, leading both recreational and competitive classes, and coaching athletes at local, regional, and national competitions.

Marissa previously worked at the Hockomock Area YMCA as their director of community wellness, where she oversaw youth programming aimed at helping kids and their families live healthier lives.

At Prototype Training Systems, Marissa will be coaching CrossFit classes and personal training sessions. She will also be leading our fundamentals classes, focusing on youth training and development.
