    Lets make fitness fun. I specialize in creating innovative, fresh and effective workouts to get you the results you want. Pulling from a variety of methods and new trends in fitness, I create custom workouts that constantly challenge the body and keep clients engaged. Outlets like Men's Journal, Bustle.com, Thrillist.com, InStyle and Allure have featured my workouts and wellness tips.

    More importantly, I try to make each session as fun as possible. Be prepared for jokes and lively banter.

    As a former athlete at Harvard I know all about training for performance and combine that knowledge with my certifications to maximize my client's results

    Any given workout with me will include components of: Weight Lifting, Agility Drills, Core Work, Muscular Endurance, Cardio, Metabolic Conditioning, Interval (HITT), Kettlebells, Mat Pilates, Components of Yoga, Running, Speed Work, and Body Building

      John has been my trainer now for almost 1.5 years. I went to him with a shoulder issue, back issue, leg issue and not having gone for a real run in a while...somewhat embarrassing. However, my wife and I had found out we were pregnant, and I was determined to be an active dad. So, I found my trainer, John Ford. Each time we meet, he's got a customized workout for me. Never pushed too far from the getgo, and even has been able to change up the workout mid-workout if something is too hard or too easy. Bottom line, seeing John has changed my life - not just physiologically, as now I am proud to show off my dad bod, but physically and healthwise, I am more flexible, stronger, happier, and have no problem now crawling around and lifting my 11-month-old boy. Thank you, John! Highly recommended.
